I’m having a candy bar and I was wondering how much candy I will need. Does anyone have any idea? There’s 150 guests, it’s not going out until the end (as favors) so people won’t be snacking on it throughout the reception. We’re using smaller candies like M&Ms, sweetarts, reese’s pieces, etc. They usually come in pounds, but I have no idea how many pounds I will need.

I think you should plan for one quarter pound per guest (if you’re having wedding cake!). Most people’s sweet tooth will already be satisfied, so you won’t need a ton!

Plan on a little more than you think you will need… people tend to go overboard when they have a little empty bag or box & they can pack it up themselves!
If it is your favor (and not just part of your dessert) you want to ensure that even the last few guests have some candy to pick from.
