Top Tips For Creating A Wedding Sweetie Table
Wedding sweetie tables have really become a thing of the present and have grown in popularity massively since being introduced into weddings a few years ago. Not only do they provide something sweet for your guests, meaning they can double up as a dessert or an extra little snack later into the evening, but they can also provide a personalised wedding favour by using little bags and scoops. This means your guests can take away a little bag of sweeties to remember the day by.

Top five tips for designing and creating a sweetie table
1. To begin with, make a list of sweets that both you and your partner love. Think about those sweets that you would always pick up, those ones that are your absolute favourite. The more personal the sweets you choose, the more personal the feeling will be on the day by choosing sweets that are yours and your grooms favourite.
2. Have an idea and make a plan of how many different sweets you want to offer and stick to it. When doing this, bear in mind the amount of guests and roughly, how many sweets people are going to be eating/taking away depending on the plan of the day. Buying too many sweets can lead to a lot of expense to purchase them all and a lot of waste if they aren’t taken, so try to make a plan for quantity and stick to it.
3. Although you should focus on picking your favourites, try and pick a range of chocolate, savoury and sweet flavoured treats. Not everyone likes the same thing and if you are offering the sweets as a wedding favour, you don’t want to alienate people who aren’t the biggest fan of sour sweets! This way, you can try and cater for the majority of peoples tastes but remember - there is no way to please everyone, so don’t be worried too much about catering for everyone else!
4. Try and be frugal where you can.

Make it work for you and it will be a day to remember – especially with a little bag of sweets to take home!
