board game wedding: candy land

The board game wedding series continues today with a sweet, irresistible and whimsical pastel inspiration board for Candy Land!

pastel candy themed wedding

I bet you’re already familiar with Candy Land. What child could resist characters like Princess Lolly, Lord Licorice, or Frostline? And the destinations were so fun – Ice Cream Sea, Candy Castle, & the Peanut Brittle House! I honestly couldn’t get enough of this colorful game when I was younger.

For a Candy Land themed wedding use sweet cotton candy colors and try to capture the sense of fun that the game has by incorporating little surprises for your guests like rock candy in the champagne glasses. Mini succulent boutonnières, a pastel ombre wedding cake, floral print bridesmaid dresses, and a colorful mason jar wall filled with goodies are all ways to add a sense of whimsy to your big day.
