I would do bold colour candy – think M&Ms. It iwll look way better than the sailor theme and one colour!

I agree with PP. I think you should do bold colors. I was thinking Candy Crush style.

I vote for not caring what colors the candy is, and just focusing on things you and your guests will enjoy!

niki2015:  I don’t know if this would work, but what if you got Navy containers? Then you could have any color candy you want. You could also get some clear ones for any navy/white/ivory candy you find.

If navy blue is the only color in your palette, I would use it with white and ivory for the candy bar. Why have a mishmash of unrelated colors?

I had a neutral wedding color scheme, ivory, light gold, beige, and also a neutral candy/dessert bar, but my “accent” was blush pink. It didnt seem too much. I didn’t worry about the color of the actual dessert or candy. I think going with red white and blue would look really out of place. Here is a photo.

Meh quite frankly no one is going to “care” except for you what the colors of the candy bar table set will be.  Just pick candies you and your FI like to have in your candy favors.  No will even remember what the colors are/were

Sassygrn:  I completely agree.

We had a candy bar with our fav candies regardless of color.  We had no complaints!  The prices at Costco were very reasonable and we came in under budget.  Our colors were black and pink and we incorporated them in the take home candy boxes.
