After looking at pictures of SUPER cute wedding buffets, I am really itching to do one for our wedding! I’m not sure if it would be worth it though, because we do not have many children attending our wedding. I thought it may be a cute idea to replace favors, and people can help themselves to take home. What do you all think?

I am totally having a candy buffet. We are having a movie themed wedding so we are renting a popcorn stand as well.

I personally am not a fan of them…but for the most part I dont like candy.

I like them and I wish we had the budget for one, but we don’t. I think it’s a great idea if you have the means to do it.

I’m a little bit obsessed with candy, so I really want to have one. We don’t have the details worked out, but it’s definitely up there on my want list.

I like them but for us that would be just one more expence I really don’t feel like dealing with. If we had the money then absolutely!

we’re doing a candy buffet for three reasons:
1. I don’t want to do favors*
2. the money we save on not doing favors will be donated to a charity in our two family’s names (there will be a sign at the buffet that explains that)
3. I LOVE CANDY!!!! everybody knows that about me
I’m really looking forward to shopping for vintage containers to put the candy in 🙂
*my sister-in-law gave out straw fans as favors, the proceeds of buying them benefitted kids in a 3rd world country. I thought it was a nice touch, but I was like, what do I do with this crappy fan? I didn’t want to keep it. and then I figured about 1/2 of the fans would end up in the garbage and it made me feel bad. so a candy buffet is a way to avoid waste. leftover candy will get eaten, and the containers will be reused in my home. problem solved!

@BridalBlondie: I think the adults would eat candy too! especially if they get tipsy and have the munchies.
I was considering adding some salty snacks to it as well.

I am definately a an of candy, so we are having a candy/cookie buffet. We are only having one child at the wedding; age 10, but I know it will be a hit with the adults.

I think the candy buffets look so neat! I am definitely wanting to do one at our wedding, we won’t have many kids at our wedding either but I think adults will still go over & snack on some.

They look cute, but from the ones I’ve experienced, don’t get much action. I have a couple of friends that had them and regretted it. It costs more than you’d think, and 2 years later one friend is still eating leftover licoriche. I never go to the candy buffets at weddings–it’s kind of a weird concept to me. All you can eat sugary crap? No thanks! Just my opinion though 🙂

Ms Hedgehog I’m in the same boat. I love them, but it’s one more thing I would be stressing to find the money for. If I had the extra cash I would sooooo do one though!!!

I think they’re adorable and I did really want one but my venue doesn’t allow any outside food/drinks and their candy buffet prices start at $4 per person (and i’m guessing is pretty crap if they start there) which is a total waste since I know I could make the bombiest one myself for like $2-3 per person
