A new idea from Candy Bar

4. Candy Bars
A few years ago, newlyweds began trending away from large wedding cakes as their sole dessert option. In an effort to satisfy their guests’ sweet tooth, candy displays hit the scene. Not only were they hugely popular but they also provided distinct benefits. For example, they offered guests a new area to check out while taking a break from the dance floor, they served as an aesthetic detail by incorporating the wedding colors and guests could also take them home as favors.

Over time, the novelty factor wore off. “Everyone loves candy but the candy table concept has taken its last bow,” We suggest that couples personalize their late-night snacks to make the experience more unique for their guests.

One creative option is to have his-and-hers treats tables. “Maybe the groom is a sucker for a good PB&J with no crusts and a cold milk while the bride has always loved caramel apples,” including your favorite childhood treats. Quirky details like state-shaped cookies. Setting up interactive stations like a waffle bar, s’mores station and chocolate truffle-wine pairings is another great way to entertain your guests.
