    I say go with what will look nicer – that’s what’s going to be in your pictures, that’s what you’re going to envision, I’m sure people won’t miss the other colors, honestly.

    I too love the look of a matching candy bar, but, the matching kind of candy kinda sucks… So this is what we’re doing, we have some very focal point jars that will frame the table with candy that we busted our ass to get in our colors (i.e. paid a fortune for M&M’s in our colors, I went to Party City and bought yellow individually boxed nerds) and then the rest of the jars are mostly plain looking with favorite candies/treats but have ribbons wrapped around them in our colors to pull it all together. I’ll come back and post a pic of what it looks like after the wedding this weekend. In my head and when I sorta did a mock-up at home, I think it looks fine!

    I prefer the matching colors, it’s more impressive and cohesive. I don’t know what wine gums are, but you can totally still have m&ms and jelly beans in matching colors.

    I’d say go with your wedding colors if that’s what you want! Those colors will look really gorgeous for a candy bar and if it’ll match your wedding, it’ll make your candy bar all the more elegant and great looking, especially in the photos.

    Our wedding colors are orange, red, and gold, but I’m throwing in other colors to mix in with my base colors to give some of the jars a bit of “oomph” (Pink and white). But even with the extra colors put in, I’m having the emphasis on the orange. It’s your wedding, do it the way you want. If they’re really that upset about not having wine gums, they’re welcome to buy a packet from Tesco on the way home from your reception 😉 

    This isn’t mine, but I’ve put a link to a picture of what my inspiration for our candy buffet will be. We’re going to use less pink, though, and more yellow. 

    And again, your colors sound great for a candy bar!!

    I like both, depending on the theme/color scheme. I f someone has a retro style wedding I love having all the retro 50s candies, cause it ties in so well!

    For yours, however, I would go with the color scheme cohesive candies. How about cow tails/caremel cremes, butterscotches, mary janes, marshmallows. meringue cookies? ferrero rocher, pretzel rods(possibly chocolate dipped?) rock candy sticks, whoppers, candy corn/indian corn, caramel corn, cracker jacks, nuts, candy apples, toffe?

    I too preferred matching… until my mom said that she had been to a few weddings with it and the candies weren’t good. She didn’t recognize any of them really. My venue did an amazing candy bar for my wedding, with as you would say “multi-colored” candies… m&ms, skittles, snickers, kiss’s, etc. I thought they did a really great job at making it still “wedding-ish” instead of birthday party.
