With the leaves changing and weather cooling down, fall wedding season is in full swing! One modern tradition we love is creating a wedding candy buffet on a table decorated in the theme of the wedding.
Jordan almonds are a classic choice for both favors and wedding candy buffets. In Italian wedding tradition, five almonds given as favors to guests in small bags or boxes symbolize five blessings for the health of the bride and groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.
There are plenty of other colorful candies to choose from, as well! Our candy by color chart helps you pick from a broad palette, and our color samplers include a variety of treats. For example, our orange sampler contains candies including Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds, Pastel Creamy Chocolate Apricots, and Peach Fruit Slices.
Here are a few ideas for how to create a wedding candy buffet:
- Add seasonal touches to the candy buffet table, such as autumn leaves for a fall wedding or wildflowers in the spring.
- Choose two colors of candy that represent you and your partner (such as each of your favorite colors, or the ones you’re wearing in the wedding) and blend them together to symbolize joining together in marriage.
- Fill large glass jars with a single color of candy, or create layers different colors.
- Send guests home with colored candies tied up in little tulle bags as wedding favors.
