Candy – The most gorgeous apothecary jars won’t do much good for a candy bar if no candy is purchased. Many forms of candy are shelf stable if stored in a cool dry place so this is something that can be purchased a couple months in advance.
Cake and Favor Containers – Chances are there will be leftover cake so guests will need a way to take some home. Also if you are saving your top tier you will need a box for that. Cake boxes can be ordered and even personalized in advance to avoid scrambling for tinfoil and paper plates. Weddings with a candy bar will need a way for guests to take a sample of candy home as well. Favor boxes are another example of something that can be personalized to add a nice touch to the wedding reception. For larger favors, gift bags or small paper totes are helpful to guests for carrying everything out the door.
