    It’s candy, so it’s inherently fun! But, my preference is to match a little. Good luck!

    I say you could go either way.  For me, my main color is purple, but I’m doing my candy in different shades of pink bc I think it complements the purple.  I’m also adding some pink in with the bouquets and the wedding cake will be very light pink, which is my attempt to tie everything together.

    I’ve seen beautiful, yummy looking buffets both ways.  It’s also somewhat cheaper to go with favorite candies, instead of certain colors.  Withe colored candies, you could find candies that are just wrapped in purple or green that aren’t grape and apple.  For example, in purple is Hershey’s bliss or Hershey’s kisses dark.  Green: I saw mint filled kisses at Target for St. Patty’s day. and green plain m&ms were out for Vday.

    Go with your favorite candies and don’t worry about what color they are. Guests will appreciate that as well.

    We are matching our wedding colors- Browns, ivory, chartreuse, orange, and a touch of purple.  Brown is easy cause I love chocolate!

    I like the the idea of what you and your fiance like. Personally I’d get tired of only grape and apple flavored candies.

    We’re matching ours, but we’re doing some cookies/cakes in addition to the candies and I’m doing the rock candy pieces myself most likely so I can pick the flavors out and I’m doing lollipops too, so the same thing there.

    I like matching as well. Remember, m&m’s and Hershey’s Kisses are delicious no matter what color they come in. Smile

    Our colors were purple and orange, and we also threw in some white candies for good measure 🙂

    We looked REALLY hard at online candy stores for candies that tasted good in our colors, and we decided if we couldn’t find any, we’d just say “screw it!” and do a rainbow color theme.

    We ended up finding lots of candies in purple and orange that weren’t just grape and well, orange. We got plum flavored taffy, mango lolipops, M&M’s (because who doesn’t love those?), Dove chocolates, orange packets of Reece’s peanut butter cups, white chocolate covered almonds and pretzels, etc. It worked out really well and our entire buffet was gone by the end of the night.

    If you can’t find candy you actually would eat in your colors, go for a “rainbow candy shoppe” theme instead and just get everything under the sun 🙂 But check out these websites where you can search for candies by color:

    I voted to do a colour coordinated look, but if you don’t like the flavours then I would just do what you want. However, there are many flavours in green – apple, lime, kiwi, pear, watermelon, mint – just to name a few. Purple doesn’t have as many options, but you might find some candies that are “shades of purple” like currant or blackberry? As for the grey – you could use silver – there are a lot of wrapped chocolates and things of that nature that are wrapped in silver and would work well!

    Good luck!!!!
