hello again, hive! i have my heart set on a candy buffet. i’ve already begun buying jars and hunting out cheap doggy-bags, but i’m at a stand still about the candy. i’m not sure whether i should attempt to get everything in my wedding colors (brown, red, and cream), or if i should just do fun candies and not worry about their wrappers. i’ve seen both done, but i just can’t decide. opinions?

I think it depends on the tone of your reception; is everthing else obsessively in your colors? If so, I would stick with colors.

I’m such a huge fan of getting the candy you LIKE and not matching with wedding colors, but I can totally see how disruptive and chaotic it can look if you have this crazy rainbow table at a themed wedding. Brown red and ivory are probably easier colors than most to match. But then in some cases you are limited to only certain flavors.
I’m doing a rainbow candy buffet at my rustic green and brown wedding. oh well.

I tried to keep our colors more or less matching, but wasn’t super strict about it. Colors were green, brown, pink

I had mine in burgundy/red and orange candies, we didn’t have a huge setup because of the cake and cupcakes we had already. I had a lot more candy leftover than I had hoped but everyone seemed to enjoy it. I think every kid left with their kids pack full of candy and cupcakes, lol.

WHOA lattelove now there is inspiration!!! Love that link. I think the one’s I personally am most drawn to are the coodinating colors. It creates interest and look the most planned and thought out.
