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.
