    If parents look after thier children like they should, I don’t see how anything would get broken.

    Accidents happen, but people need to be responsible for thier kids. It’s not your job to child-proof your wedding.

    I actually had that concern since we were having a lot of young children. Our wedding coordinator looked at me like I was crazy. She said the jars will be far enough that the little ones (under 5) can’t really reach to knock them over, and anyway kids that young shouldn’t be helping themselves to candy without an adult anyway. In the end nothing broke, and no children were hurt πŸ™‚

    I wouldn’t worry about it. Someone could drop a wineglass or plate and break that too. This is one of those things that you can’t control and will suck away your energy if you worry about it!

    This seems like an odd concern.  That would never cross my mind.  Are they worried about the wine glasses on the table too?? 

    It will be just fine. I’m sure The parents will watch their children. I have been to a few weddings or parties with the glass candy Jars and none of them broke.

    We had 35 candy dishes and they all made it home unharmed. You’ll be fine πŸ™‚

    Actually one did get broken at our wedding!!

    There were no kids there, though.  My aunt was packing them up at the end of the night and it just slipped out of her hands.  She felt really bad and offered to pay my mom for it for me.  Mom told her not to worry, it was basically disposable (right answer – I had paid $10 for that one at Home Goods – no big deal).  That was the only one that was totally empty, though – so no mess.

    Also, yogurt covered pretzels were really popular.  πŸ™‚

    Your Mom needs to relax. πŸ™‚

    I’d be more concerned about a guest dropping a glass on the dance floor, than a child knocking over a glass jar. It’s probably a good idea to keep the jars back on the table, out of the reach of little hands anyway, just so they don’t go on candy overload.

    If your aunt is you concerned about it, let HER police the candy table. Seriously- these two need to stop stressing out the bride!
