(Awful lighting, but you get the idea.)
Even though it's been done over and over again, thanks to Pinterest, we decided to do a candy table as our wedding "thank you." We had our photographer print stickers with the center design thing that was on our invitation, and we stuck them on clear bags. My mom ran all over Utah County and Salt Lake County collecting candy in our colors. You'd be surprised how hard it is to find different shades of pink and light yellow candy. :) We borrowed the frame from our photographer (you'll see it again in another post) and painted a piece of thin wood with chalkboard spray paint so we could write on it. The ribbons came from Hobby Lobby and the Dear Lizzie boutique in Highland.
Wedding cake was never something that I had dreamed about, so when it came time to choose what we wanted, I had no clue. I knew that I like round cakes better than square, and I wanted it to be fairly simple. My mom heard from one of our neighbors about a lady in Pleasant Grove who makes cakes, so we set up an appointment to go meet with her and discuss everything. Not going to lie, it was pretty overwhelming. Too many flavors, colors, frosting types, etc. to choose from. We ended up going with an ivory/cream color, simple designs, a ribbon around the middle cake, and real flowers in the middle. Simple and not overly exciting, but perfect for us. When we met with the lady at the reception center to plan everything out, we chose the dessert buffet option for the reception. Guests could choose from 12 different kinds of cakes as well as wedding cake. The best part is that we didn't have to spend the few days leading up to the wedding in the kitchen baking all of those desserts. :)
