melissasgomez: This is the website I was going to use to guide me in the candy buffet process…
There is a place they suggest to buy candy from….
I really don’t know how the prices compare to anywhere else. I decided I was not going to do a candy bar so I stopped looking.

I bought my candy from amazon. With prime free shipping, prices were compare able to elsewhere. Mine was all Gummi candies though.
I had around 135 at my wedding and bought 12 pounds of candy. I had tons leftover, but I wanted the buffet to look full. Bought the glass containers from Hobby Lobby.
I bought glassine bags and stamped a thank you message on them.

We hired professionals, and got a discount, because they provided the chair covers, too. They prepared for 101, but between last-week cancellations and no-shows, 95 attended. We had a a lot of candy left over, and although they were supposed to bag it for us, I told them to give it to the wait-staff employees. I think the guests used about half of the containers (small, black, take-out boxes). The stuff that we had a lot left over (of course, that depends on your guests) was: gummy hearts, skittles (the groom’s favorite), and twizzlers (my favorite, but they didn’t fit in the boxes). The chocolate candy and higher priced candy (Ferrero Rocher (sp?), and individually wrapped stuff went quickly. (There were 6 kids 9-17).

I used candywarehouse.com and orientaltrading.com. I found those to be the most reasonable. I used paper bags from etsy that were white and pink, the colors of my wedding. I bought all of my candy jars from Ross, Marshall’s, TJ Max, etc. as they were the most reasonably priced. We had almost 200 people 🙂
