Both sweet tables were decked out with some of the best and most color-coordinated treats. The first wedding focused on a blue-and-white theme (colors of the wedding) with sweets such as malt balls, chocolate-covered pretzels, nonpareils and shark gummies.
The second wedding offered more nostalgic options such as Dots (my favorite), gummies, rock candy and what seemed to be a total hit with the crowd -- Ring Pops! Sitting back on a couch during the afterparty, I was tickled to see our friends walking around in their Sunday best with Ring Pops on their hands.
After packing up a bag full of candy from each, I can happily say I'm still munching. Now that we live in a world full of options, are we no longer content with the candy-coated almonds that were once an end-of-wedding necessity?
Have weddings gotten more personal and reflective of the couple or are these trends that will eventually die out?
Either way, these candy bars have created a fun memory for me and most likely for many of the guests.
