Excuse the crazy angles…the photographer did this a LOT at the wedding. I can’t remember all the candy we used, but we started out trying for all hot pink,black and white, but ended up mixing other colors in too. The best prices I found were from ACandyStore.com. They have flat rate shipping and are always sending coupons for free shipping or money off.

I think we had over 20 different kinds and truffles. You’ll need to get the containers you want to use and do a trial run to see how much candy you’ll need to fill them.

I don’t have any pictures of ours yet because it hasn’t happened yet, but I just wanted to say that in my research, I have also found that “ACandyStore.com” has the best online prices. We are going to a candy store at the mall on Friday to check their prices because we can get a 20% off coupon if we go with the mall one, but unless we can get what we want for less at the mall, we will be going with ACandyStore.com.

I went with a local chocolate shop.  I was afraid to ship over the hot summer.  There are a lot of online resources for bulk candies.  You may also have good luck at BJ’s or Costco.  I think 8 to 10 selections of candy is plenty.  Your guests will love it!

@cllyons: Thanks! I was pretty upset when the event coordinator had that HUGE table setup for us to use,so we really had to spread everything out. Make sure they tell you the table size so you know if you’ll have enough to fill it out or will need to get more. Your guests will love it!

This was ours….our guests tore it up too…there was not 1 single candy left!  It was the biggest hit at our wedding.  People are still talking about it til this day =)

I found a local vendor that supplies that candy, the table, the jars and little velum bags to put it in (and stays to tend to the candy)…. all for MUCH less than I could do it on my own. I’m probably going to use her so that I don’t have worry about any of it!

I am planning on doing a candy buffet. Instead of trying to stick to a color scheme I plan on doing all of the favorite candies from when we were young. Chick-O sticks, cow tails, lemon heads, now and laters, etc. To make the cake/candy table stay in theme I am using the same linens as for the other tables and decorating the table using my bouquet and the favor bags.

You need more chocolate!!!

 

HERE is my candy buffet. I spent around $100 on candy at Target. I got everything on clearance after holidays (mostly after Halloween). I didn’t do a color scheme. I wanted to make sure everyone got their favorite kind of candy!

@Genevieve: Did you make your favor boxes, and if so how, please? Or did you purchase them, and if so where, please?
