No wedding is complete without a wedding sweet cart for your guests in the evening. The party often doesn’t start until quite late, and even with a buffet on its way, everyone enjoys nibbling on some sweets. It’s not just for the kids, the adults will be first in line to grab some treats and maybe even bring a little one up to the table as an excuse!! There are plenty of great companies that will bring a fully stocked sweet cart along to your big day, but why not create your own and make it personal and themed with the rest of your day? You can buy pretty much everything you need online or at wholesalers surprisingly cheaply – saving you money to spend elsewhere and giving you complete creative control.
Grab yourself some large jars, scoops/tongs and sweet bags, then comes the fun part – choosing your sweets. Bear in mind that not all sweets are vegetarian or nut/gluten free. Are you a classic shrimp and banana fan? Perhaps you prefer a handful of coke bottles, or something more chocolatey. You can be as creative as you like, and keep everything in line with your theme, even ordering personalised paper sweet bags. Fairy lights look fantastic draped through the arrangement and creative display solutions such as wooden crates and vintage tea stands give a wonderful vintage feel. Add some personalised signs inviting people to help themselves and handwritten tags to describe the goodies on offer. Then sit back as the guests appreciate your hard work and all important finishing touches.
Now why stop at sweets? There’s cookies and cakes to add too. In fact, the list is literally endless. You can create a fantastically beautiful and extensive choice for your guests that will keep them happy whenever the munchies hit…plus you’ll have enough leftovers to last you for quite some time!
Don’t fancy the idea of sweets? There’s loads of other nibble options without going for a full buffet. Miniature cream tea? Cheese and chutney (a great option if you had a cheese wedding cake)? Or if it’s the height of summer, why not bring in an ice-cream van while your guest relax outside. You could be traditional and serve the wonderful wedding cake for everyone to enjoy…
Rather than a wedding sweet cart maybe you’ve opted for a winter wonderland wedding and are looking for a Christmassy theme? How about a festive gingerbread house? A real winner with the kids! I bet there won’t be any left at the end of the evening!!
