Wedding Favours: The Nation's Favourite Sweets and Chocolates


Sweets and Candies of all colours


What is wedding planning if not just a series of choices made about things you wouldn’t normally worry about.  Your big day needs big decisions, and you may quickly find yourself becoming an expert in fields you’d never even considered before: décor, flower arranging, interior design, conflict management (you can’t sit HER next to HIM…) to name but a few.
Fortunately, some decisions are more enjoyable than others:  Food tasting, cake sampling, wine pairing, honeymoon planning, anyone?

And one of the best jobs has to be researching what goes on the sweetie cart.  Guests love retro sweets, and offering a selection of nostalgic candies and chocolates has been one of the most popular reception trends of recent years.  Sweets make great favours, too, and are popular with both young and old guests.  Affordable, colourful, nostalgic and, most importantly, tasty as hell, retro sweets are brilliant because as everyone knows, calories don’t count at weddings.

So what are the nation’s favourites sweets and chocolates?
