As a thank you for sharing in the celebration of their special day, most newlywed couples give their wedding guests a wedding favour. Candy and other sweet treats are a popular wedding favour for guests to enjoy. Couples who are giving candy wedding favours have many options for making a special favour for their guests to remember.

Bottled-Up Sweets

Small-sized sweets, like candy-covered chocolates, gummy bears or jelly beans, look impressive when placed in a simple glass container. Tiny Mason jars filled with candies fit perfectly into a country-themed wedding. Glass bottles sealed with a cork also look pretty, and make great favours for classic or ocean-inspired weddings. To give the favours a more dramatic look, brides and grooms can select specific colours of candies that complement the theme of their wedding.

Box of Chocolates

Chocolate-loving couples can give their guests small boxes of chocolate as a favour for attending their wedding. The bride and the groom can pick one flavour, or give guests boxes with a variety of milk, dark and white chocolates. While regular chocolate makes a delicious gift, couples who want a more distinctive favour can have their chocolate personalised with their monograms, wedding-related images, or other designs. Instead of providing guests with boxes of chocolate, a pouch containing different flavoured truffles is also sure to impress.

Candy Cocktail

For a fun favour, couples can place small candies in cocktail glasses. By pouring sweets into martini glasses or margarita glasses, newlywed couples can give their guests tasty treats, as well as a glass that can be used again. When picking candies, the bride and groom can select jelly beans or other fruity candies in shades such as pinks or greens to make the favour look like a fun mixed drink.

Candy Buffet

Candy buffets make a fun-looking addition to a reception site, and allow guests to create their own wedding favours. Before the wedding, the couple can select a variety of treats that complement their decorative scheme. For a beach-themed wedding, for instance, couples may pick seashell-shaped chocolates, blue and white candy-covered chocolates, and gummy sharks. At the reception, guests can make their way down the buffet, adding chocolate and candy to the pouches or boxes provided by the newlyweds.
