Nowadays the expectations of having a wedding are higher than they used to be and unfortunately they will only be going up. The wedding industry has changed and in all honesty, no one seems to see this as a negative thing. And it isn’t! There are more choice and more alternatives to absolutely everything. Being able to dress the way you want to show who you are in artist style is normal. Why wouldn’t the same apply to your wedding? After all, it is a celebration of your union and it should show a little bit of who the two of you are. Bring some of your fashion statement to your wedding sweets.
We will cover all the wedding sweets basics. It might sound like there is nothing to “sweets” but if you don’t plan your wedding with them in mind they can stir up some “sugar”! We will be letting you know all you need to know from where and how to arrange everything sweet at your wedding. We will cover all the sweets that are trending right now. It’s not just cupcakes anymore that are the stars of a candy bar. Things have really taken a turn in 2018.
Table Platters VS Candy Bar
Let us have a look at how you can arrange your wedding sweets. There are many types of brides and grooms out there and as it is normal with different characters, different tastes will always make for different decisions. When deciding on where and how to place your wedding sweets there are certain factors to take into consideration that will count.
On the table platters
One of the more classic choices a bride and groom can go with on their wedding day is to have individual platters of sweets on each and every table. There are certain people that still go with the classic choice of doing so. However, besides this being a classic choice, there are certain benefits to doing this that are more modern that one might think.
If the venue that you are having your wedding at is not as big and will not allow you to have everything spread out then you need to plan ahead. For instance, the band and everything else will require space so you need to economize space to make sure that your guests have enough of it. After all your guests are your most important allies at your wedding. If this is the case than having platters of sweets on each table saves space and offers everyone the exact same deserts and with room to spare.
The great thing about having platters of sweets on each table is that your guests will take only what they wish to eat. If they want another piece they can just take another. There is no need to get up when it comes to having platters at each table.
Having a sweet stand, or a candy bar is something that has been trending for years. It is one of the best changes the wedding culinary industry has seen in years. This little idea of setting a special table for sweets was a simple yet amazing idea.
One of the best things about having a candy bar is that you can make and place it where you wish. If the venue where you are having your wedding is a little bit too big then place the candy bar in that spot. You can have your candy bar moved to the exact position you wish to create the feel of a full venue.
Having a candy bar makes it easy to supply the sweets as soon as they lower in volume. The fact that there is only one place that you have to stack up with sweets makes it easier. There is less of a hassle when it comes to filling up the sweets as it would if they were on individual platers.
Having a candy bar makes it a great spot to socialize as well. Who doesn’t love sweets!
The only slightly bad part about having a candy sweet stand is the fact that some people are shy and will not get up to take anything sweet because of this.
Another bad part about having a candy bar is that people always take more than they will eat. As they say, never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach, well the same applies here. Most people take to many pieces of candy and they end up being thrown away in the end. This usually makes the candy bar sweets come to an end before the wedding is over. An empty candy bar is a sad candy bar.
