Candy Bar & Wedding Packaging

FI and I decided to steer away from the traditional favor, and we are opting to offer our guests a candy bar/candy buffet during the reception, so they can select their favorite sweet treats. It took us a while to find the right packaging for the candy, but thorough research paid off, and I found Nashville Wraps. They sell commercial and bulk packaging, including bags, cakes boxes, and takeout containers. They can custom print your items, and they even offer eco-friendly packaging options.

I've compared pricing to local craft stores and discount stores, and Nashville Wraps had the best pricing for what we wanted. Their products are of great quality, and they specify which packaging is food grade. We ordered the 200 printed cello bags that we wanted, and they arrived pretty quickly. So far, we've also purchased about a dozen apothecary jars or varying shapes and sizes. We'd like to have our candy bar look something like this when we are finished.

Where did you find your apothecary jars?

I got most of the apothecary jars at Michael's. They have an assortment of sizes and shapes, most ranging from about $15 to about $30. They often have Sunday evening sales (4-8 p.m.), offering 20%-25% off. Also, in lots of wedding magazines, they will advertise and have coupons for 25% off of your entire purchase. If you need a large amount of the same jar, they will usually do a bulk order for you. They'll honor a sale price, and absorb the shipping costs.

I also got some of our jars from HomeGoods, the home furnishings store that is part of the TJX company (owners of TJ Maxx and Marshall's). They don't have a huge selection, but I've found that their pricing on the jars they do have is better than Michael's.
