I would make sure to have a big sign that asks parents to please escort their children to the candy bar so you don’t have kids ruining the beautiful display. I actually saw this happen at a wedding with a dessert bar (cookies, brownies, etc.) and I felt so awful for the bride and groom! You would think people would have the manners and common sense to control their kids, but they don’t.

It might also be a good idea to have a friend watch over the table just like they would being a punch server or a guest book attendant. Just to make sure the candy dishes are remaining full and no one is messing up the display!

Why is your Mom against it other than the lollipop sticks? Trust me…she won’t even notice much about it once the reception begins, but will be happy when everyone tells her what a great idea it was!

It will be fine. Display it how you want and let people enjoy themselves. It’s one small part of the overall day, and its meant to be fun.

I think a lot of women in our mothers’ generation don’t like this idea. My cousin had a candy bar and my aunts kept going on and on about how tacky and weird it was, and then they loved it once they saw it in action. I think they’re just really unfamiliar with it and it sounds odd and inappropriate to them until they actually see it done.
