It’s no secret that candy is a popular pick as a wedding favor for many couples, with ‘candy bars’ (no, not Candy Bars, but those are good, too!) outgrowing their status as a trend, and becoming a fast go-to favorite. And while we think candy is a smart favor pick for any wedding, for its deliciousness and because it simply makes people smile, there is no wedding that candy makes more sense for than a Halloween wedding!
We’ve been reading quite a few fun stories about people who have been married on Halloween in the past, and those who will be this year or next. And we have to admit we can’t think of a better Halloween party than the reception of a couple who is cool enough to get married on this super fun holiday. We also love the idea that many of these couples are asking guests to come in costume, and many of the couples themselves are in costume as well. (No, not as bride and groom!) I would rather dance the night away in costume than uncomfortable heels any day!
The options for decorating with candy for your Halloween wedding are rather endless, but we wanted to highlight some fun ideas for favors in this post. When it comes to choosing the candy you’ll use, you can gift guests Halloween Candy or an assortment of Orange Candy and Black Candy. Or, you can just use your favorites! Is there a candy you or your fiance favor above all others? Is there a candy that reminds you of a favorite memory? Consider selections from our Nostalgic Candy collection if candy has always been an important part of your life.
The real fun comes in how you’ll give the candy to your guests. You can keep it simple but thematically spot-on by purchasing treat bags from your local party supply store, filling them with candy, and setting them at each seat. Or, you can use a pumpkin candy bucket or cauldron filled to the top with a sweet selection of treats as the centerpiece of each table and leave empty treat bags at each place setting so guests can choose their favorites. And if you want to make your guests sing for their sweets like so many trick-or-treaters will be that night, nothing gets a reception rocking quite like karaoke!
