With the weather turning chillier, guests would only be too happy to be greeted by a fountain of warm chocolate (bet they’d love it in summer too!). Guests will be queuing to dunk some marshmallows or fruit skewers in to the river of chocolate and it would make a great statement piece at the reception too. Nom. If you’re looking for a chocolate fountain for your own Big Day, you can hire one from Carolyn’s Sweets.

Candy Buffet

Donuts are a massive trend at the moment. So guests would be chuffed to see a stack or wall of them at your wedding!
