anything different other than candy cart

Postby offalycoc » Thu Dec 27, 2012 4:46 pm

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if anyone has done anything different instead of a candy cart. A lot of my friends have done this so would like to do something else but finding it hard to come up with something.

Thanks

There a supplier here who posts, they do crêpes. There are sweet and savoury types. I think they posted in the canapé thread.

Some people do a dessert table and style it in their wedding colours/theme.

hate candy carts aswell, so overdone! not having any but ive seen a ferreo roche stand, it had over 500 + on it, 16 tiers, it brought back memories of the ad that used to be on years ago!! other than that there has been chip vans - why? I personally think they are pointless, I would rather a guest book , I LOVE photos and a friend suggested a photo booth? no, sorry a camera will do. added expense for no reason, its the couples day to stand up and declare their love for each other not to outdo everyone else?

+1 on the candy cart..seen this at so many weddings now it's nearly part of the norm..If it was a summer wedding you your could do a vintage ice cream van after the church or just outside the hotel when people arrive...

Or put the money into some sort of entertainment like a fire-eater later in the evening if you have long break to fill between the meal and the band (think we're going to have 1hr & half break ourselves so worried this will be a bit long and people will be sitting around so trying to think of something ourselves)

Ice cream van during summer is lovely idea.

We had a caricaturist (Anita is a supplier on here) and it went down a storm. Everyone who got one absolutely loved it and it's lovely to go to people's houses and see them up in various places around their homes. Nice memento I think! It worked well for us as I'm into art (although not many people knew that before the wedding!) and it "fit". We did, however, also have a candy buffet and it went down a treat.... but very few people had seen them at that stage. Agree now they are a bit overdone.

ice cream van sounds brilliant, can you imagine the fun you'd have taking photographs with that. Photo booths are a good extra too? good luck with the planning

Love the ice cream bike , was gona suggest an ice cream cart with loads of different ice creams , toppings (sweets , chocolates and also fruits ), sauces and different kind of holders. Some people could have cones some could have a bowl of jelly n ice cream and some knickerbocker glories etc etc the list is endless.
