I want one soooooooooo bad! I am a huge candy, cake, and pepsi freak and I’m wondering if the whole idea is overdone and if I should just toss it. I’ve found some interesting candy that I’d like to use as well as some cakes and cookies I want to add to it. This will serve as favors for the guests. I think edible is the way to go. Opinions anyone?

If you want one, then go for it! Who cares if it is overdone. If your family hasn’t been to a lot of weddings recently, they probably haven’t seen one (I haven’t seen one outside of the wedding world).

I don’t think they’re old news… it’s just, online they’re everywhere! The average wedding guests experience has not included the added extras like candy buffets, damask theme, cupcake towers, etc.
Because we’re planning our weddings & we see these ideas everywhere it feels like they’re overdone, only they aren’t! I say go for it 🙂

They’re not exactly new news (my friend had a candy buffet at her wedding in 2007), but most people think they’re great. Who cares! If you like the idea, go for it.
I definitely agree edible is the way to go with favors.

I think candy buffets may be old news in the blogosphere but in the “real” world, it’s still a pretty unique favor. I have never been to a wedding with a candy buffet…and boy do I want to. A LOT of the “trends” that you see on the ‘Bee and elsewhere that can seem overused aren’t really. The weddings talked about on the ‘Bee are spread out all over the world so some of these things may have never been seen in your area. I say go for it.

In blogs, they’re definitely overdone. But your wedding isn’t for a blog! Most, if not all, of your guests will have never encountered it. I’m doing it. Who cares!

I don’t think they are old news, but I do think they are really expensive. I really want one, but I don’t want to spend the money.

My wedding was the first time any of my guests had seen one! I think that they aren’t terribly common, even though they are in a lot of magazines and online.
Besides, edible favors are definitely the best and candy buffets make for such great pictures and they just make people happy. I say go for it!

do it! you can still customize it to make it you, and your guests will probably appreciate the trend’s long life!

I am with yout – I <3<3<3<3 candy, cake and pepsi too! I think a candy buffet will be great. I’d love to do one, but we’re trying to keep costs down since the dinner itself is so expensive. If you do it, please post photos! I’d love to see it!

I haven’t been to a wedding with a candy buffet! I know I would love it as a guest because they look so fun and I love the sugar on the dance floor!

OUr wedding was the first time most of our guests had ever seen the candy buffet. I’ve only been to one other wedding that had a candy buffet. I think it is a fun and nice alternative to having lots of cake. I noticed some people didn’t eat cake they went straight for the candy.
