Purple Wedding Candy Buffet

Would you love to have a purple wedding candy buffet like the one shown below? It looks so expensive but everything on this table is a budget saving wedding idea:  glazed donuts, cake pops, cupcakes, purple sixlets and white chocolate covered pretzels. More filling and more affordable than candy alone. I'm always looking to cut the costs, but if you want a "candy only" buffet, here is a list to get you started.

Purple Wedding Candy Ideas

  • Sixlets Mini Chocolate Balls 
  • Purple Hershey's Kisses
  • Chocolate Jordan Almonds
  • Berry Purple Rock Candy Sticks
  • Foiled Milk Chocolate Hearts
  • Tiny Lavender Candy Hearts
  • Purple Grape Lollipops
  • Grape Licorice Twists
  • Light and Dark Purple M&Ms
  • Jelly Belly Jelly Beans (Grape Crush and Plum Jelly)
  • Purple Gumballs
  • Grape Salt Water Taffy
  • Raspberry Yogurt Covered Mini Pretzels

Jelly Belly Wedding Candy Buffet

Wedding candy buffets - I love the ruffled blue ombre cake and assorted blue jelly beans featured in this photo. I usually prefer glass apothecary jars and custom made labels, but a beautiful blue variety of jelly beans and M&Ms, especially arranged in "C" and "J" shaped bowls, makes this party look playful and fun. Everyone has a favorite Jelly Belly flavor - Cappuccino or Caramel Corn or sweet Cotton Candy. A clean, low calorie treat (less than 50 for every ten jelly beans), it would be hard to pick a candy more well-loved than these.

Short Sleeve Lace Bolero Jacket

This lovely lace bolero jacket is available for less than $50 in white, off white and ivory. Reminiscent of 17th century French lace from the renowned city of Alencon, this vintage style lace bolero has dainty cap sleeves and lace ruffled edges. Sizes include small (0-4), medium (6-8), large (10-12) and extra large (14-16). Size 14 isn't exactly my idea of "extra large" but these are the measurements listed. To make sure you get the perfect fit you will need your measurements including: back length, shoulder, length of sleeve and upper arm circumference.

Honey Wedding Favor Ideas

Honey wedding favors - will putting them together be a bit of messy madness? It may be worth it when you consider how wholesome honey really is. Honey is fat free, great for your digestion and full of life-saving antioxidants. A natural sweetener for your afternoon tea. Today I found a sweet selection of small glass favor bottles at Save On Crafts (a place online I love to shop). Check out their 7 ounce melon-shaped bubble jars, approximately three inches tall and wide, with gold medal lids. At less than $10 for a set of six, this is a rustic honey wedding favor idea that is fresh, affordable and lots of fun.
