A Candy Buffet Can Bring Fun to Your Wedding

Are you looking for something that brings a bit of childhood fun and whimsy to your wedding? A candy buffet might be the right choice for you.

Candy buffets are a great way to give your guests a treat at your reception and they look beautiful. The Candy Bin in Danbury will work with you and your fiance to stock your buffet full of your favorite treats. These can be color-coded to suit your wedding palette or tied into your wedding theme.

The candy is displayed in various sizes of apothecary jars and vases for a fantastic retro style. Guests can even use the candy bags provided to create their take-home mix of candy. This is the perfect wedding favor that your guests will have fun putting together.

The Candy Bin offers a variety of candy buffet packages. You can have them set up and take down the buffet or do it yourself with supplies rented from them. Either way, you’ll be adding a fantastic and fun element to your wedding reception.

Whether you’re a chocoholic or gummi crazy, you and your guests will love a candy buffet from The Candy Bin. To find out more about them and to meet many other great Connecticut wedding vendors, come to one of our upcoming shows.

Wedding Planning Tips

3 Things to Remember In Your Wedding Planning

As you get into your wedding planning, your mind will be pulled all over the place. You’ll consider the details of things you never thought you’d be interested in. But throughout the planning process, it can be a huge help to keep three key things in mind.

  1. Your budget. Your wedding budget needs to be kept in mind for every other decision. Before you choose a vendor, or even start meeting with vendors, know your budget and have an idea of what it will realistically get you.
  2. Your style. This will also help you find the right vendors for you, and keep you focused on the type of wedding you want to have. Whether it’s DIY, vintage, modern, or traditional, knowing the style you want can help you plan and decide on everything else.
  3. Your priorities. Is the ceremony more important than the reception, or vice versa? Is having a fabulous photo album at the end more important than serving a fancy meal, or vice versa? Knowing your priorities will help you know what not to worry about.

Whatever your budget, style, and priorities, you’ll need to work with excellent Connecticut wedding vendors to pull it all together. To meet great vendors and have a fun day, come to our next Wedding Steps Bridal Show!

Wedding Vendor Spotlight: Justice of the Peace Mary Pugh

No wedding is complete without an officiant. In fact, it simply can’t happen without one! If you’re planning a wedding, particularly if you aren’t planning a religious ceremony, finding the right officiant can be a challenge.

You’ll want somebody you and your fiance feel comfortable with, and who will perform a ceremony that fits your needs. This is why Mary Pugh, a Justice of the Peace based in Norwalk, is so great. She has worked with many couples to craft the ceremony that is perfect for their day.

She is also able to perform ceremonies in English, Spanish, and French, and offers 24/7 availability. This means that if you have a specific day of the week or time of day in mind for your dream wedding, she won’t be out of hours or charge you an extra fee.

You can find out more about Mary Pugh’s services, and read plenty of testimonials, on her website. You can also get in touch with her through our vendor directory, where you can find all the other vendors you’ll need for your Connecticut wedding.
