    kristen182:  We’re using either 8oz or 16oz boxes (shipping info is in fiance’s email). If this is your favor I think that should be enough to get a small sampling of whatever looks appealing. Most favors aren’t massive (a bag of a few Jordan almonds, a macaroon, 2 chocolate covered oreos, etc.) To me 8oz of candy seems fine and 16oz definitely is! The boxes are quite cute in person – put personalized stickers on them. You could fit a BUNCH of m & m’s in there.

    kristen182:  I think 8oz is perfect. You can pack a lot of candy into 1 cup. People can be piggy when it comes to freebies so I think 8oz is a nice compromise. Otherwise, kids are going to be loading up pounds of candy and hauling it home. Hello! That’s called Halloween.

    I’d be excited about a candy buffet too. I think they are cool. I’ve never seen one at a wedding before.

    You are being more generous than I am! I am using 2″ square boxes for the take-home candy, and providing plates for those who want to eat some candy while at the reception.
