I’m a sucker for gummies!!! I’d be infinitely happy with gummies.

We had a lolly buffet – most of the lollies were English or australiam so that will bd of no help to you but it was a hit and all the lollies ran out relatively quickly! I thought I had bought too much! I think I got around 200g per person, should have maybe increased that a bit but I didn’t want to have heaps of leftovers

RenoSweeney24:  I think it would be fine if you picked a solid brand. I love Haribo. I love those different gummy shapes!

We are doing a candy buffet. We were going to use our wedding colors, but we found that it was much more cost effective to use typical store bought candy, [instead of specific colors]. We have ALOT of jars and containers to fill though, enough to fill an 8 foot table, so we are getting ALOT of candy.

We aren’t spending more than $300 on the candy itself.

Towards the center of the candy buffet we will have a chocolate fountain with marshmallows and other dippables.

We basically plan to fill the larger containers with larger type wrapped candies [reeses, hersheys, twix, ect], and have unwrapped candies in the smaller jars. So far we have purchased jolly rancher jelly beans, chewy sweet tarts, twizzlers, and tootsie rolls. We plan to purchase m&ms, reeses pieces, m&m minis, skittles, starbursts, ect.

We also bought a large bag of dum dums which we plan to make sucker toparies out of.. we are using the eiffel tower vases, and plan to light the inside of each to make them glow… adding extra ambiance to our candy buffet.

Just make sure that your containers are a reasonable size – if guests can take them home. I went to one wedding where I swear the boxes were the size of a 1-pint take-out food container. If everyone filled them, only a small percentage of the guests would have gotten any.

Hi RenoSweeney! We are also doing a candy buffet, and our colors are a deep purple, hot pink/fuschia, and burnt orange. I’m definitely doing some Lindt truffles because their packaging is so pretty and fun, and they’re amazing to boot! I am also doing some Ghiradelli (sp?) squares, and I know they make some that have blue packaging (their pink packaged ones are a dark chocolate raspberry that is awesome!)

We are also doing some really pretty fabrics on the table, with risers underneath to kind of “mix” things up a bit. I am still not sure where I’m going to get containers from yet; have you found anything that is afforadable but nice? I’m also considering having some stickers done to put on the containers. 

We are also doing a dessert bar with take-home boxes for cookies, cannolis, pie, etc. I’m from the northeast and this is pretty popular here! I thought it would be a nice thing for all of our out-of-town guests, too, to take some goodies back to their hotel rooms with them after the night.
