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 did a small buffet for a friends birthday party and it was definitely not as good as any of yours but it went down amazingly everyone loved it!!

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!
