I am getting married May 5, 2012 and we are having a Venetian Hour and I want to do a candy table. I will have about 375-400 people. Can anyone tell me how much candy to order? I don’t want it to run out right away but I also don’t want pounds and pounds left over.

You’re supposed to buy about .25 -.5 pound per guest. We went with a little more than .5 pound per guest and we had a ton of candy left over.

I was wondering the same thing. I found some info on a candy website. It suggested 6 ounces of candy per person. I have 65 people, so I need about 25lbs of candy. They also suggested about 7 different types of candy.

I have read around half a pound per person, but it sounds like there are a lot of suggested amounts!
