A few trips to homesense later, and I'd collected a nice little assortment of various sized mason jars and ivory ceramic dishes that I can't wait to fill with our favourite sweets. I also had a look online and found some very reasonably priced metal scoops and pink and white striped paper bags from Amazon. Perfect and charming for my DIY buffet. I think I'll also pick up some gold and ivory ribbons to decorate the jars with and pull together my wedding colour scheme.
Onto the tasty part - sourcing the sweets themselves.
I love the idea of personalised sweets and there a few brilliant and fun types of sweeties just waiting to be emblazoned with my and my husband to be's wedding day message. Here are my favourites:
Personalised M&M's - With a plethora of colours to match any bride's colour scheme and 2 sides of messages to print, these little pieces of candy coated chocolate are wedding day perfect. As favours or part of a sweets table they're charming and fun. They may be a bit pricey but I think they're worth it. Loves!
A Bit of Rock - This pretty in pink 'Just Married' option sells for a very reasonable price from none other then John Lewis. You can also get these personalised from specialist websites (as in some of the pics below) but a word of warning...this can cost in the £200+ range for just 100 sweets. Eep! I think I'll just go for the perfectly pretty high street option.
