Hmm…not sure of cost per person, but my friend got 60 pounds for 200 guests and it was all gone. The accessories were like 120. Homesense always has good apothecary jars.

I haven’t figured outPP but I should. I just ordered 3 lbs of vanilla salt water taffy for $15 with free Prime shipping from amazon, I also got 2 lbs of pink shimmer gumballs on amazon for around $12 with maybe $4 shipping. Research different candy options for sure don’t just buy ” bulk” candy from a bulk candy seller it’s outrageous per pound and the shipping per pound. I even looked into a groupon for using custom M and Ms and it was SO outrageous!! (I think I’ve paid the price  for ALL the candy I’ve bought so far for what they wanted after shipping for 2lbs of mms!) Were also lucky that one of our colors for the wedding is a hot pink/fuschia color because I took full advantage of walmarts valentines day candy! Got 4 bags of hot pink and silver foiled dove chocolate hearts and hot pink caramel kisses! I knew having a wedding the month before valentines day would work to our advantage as far as our color and the candy bar:) I also plan to be at cvs when they open they day after valentines day and get all their hot pink Lindt truffles for 59% off !

Food for thought – The last wedding I attended, which had a candy bar, either had boxes that were too big, or a lot of guests with a sweet tooth. It was cleared-out after half the guests had left.
