Candy Bar Ideas

Recommended Posts

I was going to put some kind of sweets in welcome bags. We will hardly have any children attending our wedding, and as far as a candy bar goes…we will be have 4 course meal, AND cake…I think the guests will be too full to think about candy! Also, as far as traveling with glassware…if you DO a candy bar, I recommend a different type of arrangement for holding it all. (Plastic containers, baskets, some kind of bags)

I agree, I wouldn't want to travel with glass either! I'm a clutz, and would for sure break them!

Candy in welcome bags sound good. The resort may even have something to put candy in maybe ask your WC?

Right I am terrified to fly with ANYTHING glass! Because unless you bring extra, if anything breaks you are out of luck. Plus, it weighs the suitcases down a lot more.

Hello brides

 

I'm doing a destination wedding in Riviera Maya June 8, 2016. I was thinking Playa Del Carmen would have a lot of choices and it would be cheap. Boy were we wrong! Thank goodness we did a site visit in Playa Del Carmen months prior to our wedding so that we could plan accordingly, and checked out the local wal-mart. It is NOT cheap, and your choices for inexpensive (or any) glassware is slim. So i'm trying my best to find plastic (ie. party city) and buying candy bulk here in Canada and bringing it down. Wal-mart will only be good for local, traditional Mexican treats. I read a post about one bride wishing she had just paid the over baggage fees because her candy bar end up costing her a fortune. 

 

Remember, it can be very hot and humid there. Buy your candy accordingly to the weather. 

 

i'm still on the fence about it. i want one but i don't know if it's possible.

I ended up bringing my own. My wedding planner said like something ridiculous like 400$ for it and I asked what would be included and she said umm like chips. lol expensive and not what I wanted. I brought a few glass and plastic apothecary jars, scoops and tongs, stick on chalkboard signs to write on the labels, mini bags to place the candy in ( I decorated them w travel stickers). I brought an assortment from America that I bought at Costco and grocery store ( no chocolate bc it will melt) and some local candies in Mexico ( they don't have many of my American favorites there so glad I brought). Part of the point was to show my love for candy and my favorite kinds to make it more personal. Success!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
