Got a Sweet Tooth? Check out this Dylan’s Candy Bar Wedding!

If you’ve ever been to NYC’s Dylan’s Candy Bar, you know what a fun place it is. I knew it was a popular spot for kid’s birthday parties but I had no idea they could do weddings! How fun is this real life wedding? This is certainly not for the shy….

Click here to read the New York Times Vows story about this unique couple who had an on again, off again relationship for 20 years!

The bride wore a borrowed dress made of candy wrappers that was designed for Project Runway.

The wedding canopy was made of giant Whirly Pops and candy-colored balloons.



How cute is this cake? The guests dined on peanut butter and jelly tarts and candy sushi while the couple danced to “Sugar, Sugar.”

Wow is all I can say! I’d love to attend a fun-filled party like that.
