Dylan Lauren Offers Tips For Incorporating Candy Into Your Wedding

Dylan Lauren's Sweet Tips For Your Wedding

If you want your wedding to be a grand production but don't have the budget, remember that tiny flourishes like thoughtful candy will make the moment just as delightful. We employed the help of Dylan Lauren, daughter of Ralph Lauren and owner of Dylan's Candy Bar, a dessert outpost with locations in New York, Houston, and Florida. "We do a lot of candy favors for weddings," Lauren says. To see her pointers for making your wedding a sweet success,


  • Include jordan almonds. In Italy, jordan almonds are popular because their egg shape symbolizes fertility and life.
  • Integrate silver and white candies. For a wedding theme, incorporate white chocolate roses or white petits fours.
  • Match candy to the bridesmaids' dresses. Reinforce your wedding's color scheme in a unique way by matching candy colors to the hues of the wedding party.
  • Customize favors. Design custom candy bar wrappers to announce your marriage, or enchant guests with customized lollipops.

Have you seen any other creative uses of candy in weddings past? If so, share them with us below!

I work in a catering hall, and have worked at more weddings - and thus seen more favors - then pretty much anyone else I know. You know what favor gets left behind on tables more than anything else? Jordan almonds.

What I did for my wedding reception was to go to My M&Ms website and get customized ones with our names and the date on them in our wedding colors. They were a big hit!

What about local candy? I got married on the southern Caribbean coast in Costa Rica and we gave guests chocolate made by a Bri Bri woman in the interior with cacao there.
