Has anyone else ever done anything like this? I want to use two different colours of Nerds instead of sand at our “sand ceremony”. I figure we can pour them into a nice apothocary jar and then serve it at our candy buffet. I don’t have a use for a jar of sand, but a jar of Nerds is delicious! 🙂
Now the only question is, does anyone know where I can find bulk Nerds that are single colours only or am I going to spend hours seperating out little boxes?

I like that idea.
What about jelly beans or M&Ms instead of nerds? Those are easier to get in separated colors.

I think that sounds really cool, although honestly as a guest I wouldn’t want to eat it at your buffet after! It was part of your ceremony, it’s “sacred”!!! LOL!

haha i love this idea – mostly because i love nerds! probably my favorite candy of all time.
i’ve never seen them sold in seperate colors in bulk – you may have to do a bunch of little boxes – but a couple bags of those should be enough.

the only thing is that if you are planning on keeping the vases filled then the candy might attract bugs or ants get nasty etc etc…
If not, then nerd it up!!

I think I love you. No advice, just backing your idea 100% 🙂
As a guest, I’m with bakerella, though, I would feel evil eating your marriage Nerds!

@KatNYC2011: Yeah I though about M&M’s and jelly beans too. I was just hoping for Nerds since they are my favourite!
@bakerella: Haha, one of my friends said that too! If no one wants to eat my sacred marriage Nerds I will be more than happy to take them home and eat them myself! 🙂
@blondilocks: We definitely won’t be keeping the candy. I’m a candy-a-holic and it will be eaten.
Thanks for the support everyone! I was so excited when I thought about this idea. We’re going to have a bit of a dorky/nerdy theme (the boys are going to wear Xbox controller cufflinks) so I thought this would fit in perfectly!

I would totally eat your sacred marriage nerds :). Awesome idea, and I love the XBOX cufflinks!

Just as a thought, have you considered a sand “frame”? A frame with a picture of your wedding with the sand behind it in another “pane”?
Just a thought. If not, like PP said, Nerd away 🙂

I am giving my groom xbox cufflinks too 🙂

Such a fun idea, I’m on the fence as to whether I’d eat them though!

I love this idea! I was going to do a sand ceremony because we’re at the ocean and I
1. Hate the unity candle – it always goes out
2. Am sure with the ocean breeze a candle will never ever light and then what does that mean? Is my marriage not supposed to last if the thing won’t light?
3. Sand, beach, hey it all goes together.
My dilemma. Should I keep the sand after? What do I do with it? If you have “sacred candy” you can feed it to your guests, but I can see where they might get a liitle weirded out by it. Plus I’m sure if I tried to transport my “sacred sand” back home it would end up all over my car if I took a sharp turn or something.

I think it’s cool as long as you aren’t going to feel heartbroken later about not being able to keep it.
As for the color thing, I just tried to Google buying single-color Nerds in bulk and came up with nothing. Looks like you might have to break open some of those little boxes!

The smaller mini boxes come in seperate flavors, so you wouldn’t have to sort them but just dump all the little boxes out! So much easier

@jo.lee: “I would totally eat your sacred marriage nerds”
Not a sentence I ever thought I would read lol.
P.s. I love the idea.
