Our Wedding – Candy Buffet {Flashback Fridays}

I have mentioned in another of my flashback posts about our wedding that I took a lot of inspiration from [American] weddings that I saw on The Knot, one idea that kept popping up was a candy buffet.  These days they are a lot more common in the UK, but, back then, not so much.  I eventually sold my hubby on the idea, and we set to work buying jars, bags, scoops and of course lots and lots of sweeties!

I was a bit worried that this might fall flat on its face, but I needn’t have worried because it was a roaring success! I can honestly say we were left with next to no sweets by the end of the night.  I’m so glad that we did this.  I think what helped was the selection of retro sweets that we picked, which took people back to their childhoods :)

I made a sign (after finding a poem online)

I made some tags, using images of the sweets as a background for the text.

This was the mock up I did at home

    That idea of having retro sweets is great! The nostalgia factor is always always a big hit with guests!

      Oh it was such a hit! I really couldn’t believe how much of a hit it was! I was worried (at the time) that we had bought way too many sweets – turned out I could have bought more :D

      Wouldn’t hesitate to do this again – went down a real treat :D
