I’ve noticed a new trend in wedding desserts. Shockingly it’s to dispense with them altogether. This bodes well, however, for budgets and also for guests who have eaten too much. One alternative is to serve up the wedding cake as dessert. The other is to provide a candy buffet which is quickly gaining popularity in the UK. Offer to guests instead of traditional bonbonierre’s. Sweet toothed couples should be beware of all the sampling!
The key to making your candy buffet special is to provide unusual sweets alongside old favourites. Make sure presentation is top notch with large glass bowls and vases and offer guests mini party bags or boxes for their loot.

Provide old-time sweetie jars like this one from Nigella Lawson £14.95, tall vases and chunky goblets with scoops for the guests to indulge.
