I am not sure if many bees are still doing the candy buffet but FI and I are!
So I was just wondering if any bees wanted to share some pics and share what they will be having in their jars!
We will be having m&ms, fuzzy peaches, whoppers, caramel candy (a polish brand that my daughter loves), coffee crisp, coca-cola candy, sour worms, lindt chocolates, gummy bears and there was one more thing I can’t remember right now.
We will also be having homemade cookies (one of my bridesmaids makes AWESOME cookies).
We got these bad boys by thrifting (which we are addicted to). Sorry for the crummy pic!

Here’s mine I did it this past December for our wedding. Our colors were purple, ivory and gold and so I stuck to that. For the Purple: m&m’s, grape gumballs, black cherry blowpopts, grame gummybears, huckleberry stick, for the ivory: chocolate covered pretzels, white choc covered oreos, pina colada twizzlers, pinepple gummy slices, for the gold we did things wrapped, andes candes, mini snickers and reese’s cups.

@mwitter80: How many people were at your wedding?
We will be having 180 and I am kind of worried that we won’t have enough candy!

I’m so jealous of your white chocolate oreos! I want them for ours so badly, but you can’t buy the premade ones this time of year and I’m not paying a buck a piece for them on Etsy or adding to my already to long list of week of todos by making them myself 🙂
We’re having a dessert/candy buffet. My mom is making cupcakes, we’re making a few kinds of cookies, getting some from my mom’s fave italian bakery and I’m filling in with candy. I think it will be pixy sticks, orange sixlets, aqua whoppers, some sort of lollipop or stick candy, orange starbursts, gummy bears, white chocolate pretzels and anything else that jumps out at me 🙂

Ours from last Sept (we had cake too so this was just “extra”):

Whether or not candy buffets aren’t popular here on the bee anymore is one thing but I have to tell you, your guests will LOVE IT. You see them on here everyday but they don’t go to weddings or are researching ideas for weddings each day and to them, I think it’s a novelty.
We got married in October 2010 and had one. It was great. Here’s what we had:
- swedish fish (family thing)
- mini peppermint patties (my fav)
- dark chocolate cover espresso beans (husband’s fav)
- dark chocolate hershey kisses
- caramel swirls
- chocolate malt milkballs (delish)
Then we also had more desserts on the table which included:
- rolled pizzelles dipped in chocolate
- kruschicki (Polish bow cookies)
Our guests loved everything!

@tranquility: we had 120 people. I bought a 80lbs of candy or so and we had a good amount left over. So I would stick to like 1/2lb per person. I know that may sound like a lot, but people were eating it all night since it was out, not just taking it as favors. 80lbs would probably work for you. The pretzels were the cheapest per pound and you can get a lot of them for a little. Bulkfoods.com has ton of stuff candy coated for cheaper then some of the other sites like candywarehouse and what not.
We also had cake and milk and cookies. People still ate lots of stuff.
