Wedding sweets (that aren’t cake!)

With wedding season just around the corner, we couldn’t help but wonder how to make these events sweeter without adding more cake. I mean, depending on the customs you follow, you can have your traditional bride’s cake, a groom’s cake and even a bridesmaid’s cake! And while we love sugar, that’s a lot of cake.

Here are 5 ways to sweeten your special day without breaking the bank (or getting a toothache).

Put it in a basket:

Imagine coming in for a wedding out of town, staying at a hotel and upon arrival you’re greeted with a basket full of goodies. Who wouldn’t love that? Pick a fun theme to wrap it around – how the couple met, maybe a cutesy movie that you love or just fill it to the brim with great local finds that your out-of-town guests may have never experienced.


Will you be my bridesmaid?

French macarons: everyone is going crazy over these colorful, light as air cookies right now, and for good cause; they’re adorable, come in more colors than you can imagine and almost as many different flavors.
Take it a step further with these individual French macaron topiaries for each table. They double as gorgeous centerpieces, then guests can nosh as they please.

Have a seat:

Candy bar place cards. Oh yeah, you heard me. Imagine not only finding that you’ve been seated next to the adorable co-ed but that there’s also your personal candy bar with your name on it. Literally.


Whether you have the labels custom printed or calligraphed, this added touch is a great way to let guests know where to sit and serves as a thank you gift (or a “nibble on this while you wait for your plate”!)

Monogrammed shirts for the bride and party are so 2013. How about your initials emblazoned in candy? Your nuptials will be *the* talked about event and the marker that all future weddings will be held against. Give bags of custom candy to each guest as a thank you on their way out. Plus with organic sugars and all natural flavors, you can feel good about these sweets. (Minimum order of 100 bags.)
