So my candy/sweets buffet is one of the things I’m SUPER excited for.
We’re doing the usual candies, and adding gourmet cookies, brownies, fortune cookies, truffles, & maybe even cheesecake!
I did a wedding bee search trying to find a threat with a collective amount of candy buffets for ideas/discussion, couldn’t find one that wans’t over a year old!
Post your candy buffets, how it looked – how popular it was. Any candies that weren’t popular?

@jenilynevette: I’m tagging this because I’ve been searching like crazy too for pics. We’re doing a sweet and salty snack buffet though.

This was my inspiration, long before I ever came to the bee. I seen this picture, and I knew I had to have something like this!

@housebee: Also tagging. I am planning on doing a candy buffet at my wedding too! The man that we are working with at our reception site gave me an awesome idea! Have family members or wedding party meembers (or both!!) pick a candy type to add to the buffet as one more way to show them how much you appreciate them!

We had a candy buffet and it was a huge hit! (so I heard, I was so busy that I didn’t get any 🙁 But I did get some great pics! We also had an attendant from the company that did the candy buffet stay to refill the candy so even though it looks like there are only 10 truffles on the tray, they were constantly being replaced.
Chocolate covered oreo cookies (purple-colored white chocolate)
Salt Water Taffey

I’m having one on Sunday, I’ll try to remember to come back w/ pictures and whether it was a success once it’s all over 🙂 Crossing my fingers people actually eat the candy…or it at least makes for a good picture, haha

we had a candy buffet too but my aunts set it up and they forgot the signs at the hotel… wah!
regardless it went pretty well… I loved having different jars and we sort of kept the candy to the red white, gold and blue theme (those yellow gummies were pineapple and were TOTALLY white on amazon but came in this yellow hue… sadface) and then used both our flags (USA & Great Britain) under.
The almost everything when super quick, I tried to keep it to pre-wrapped candies because I knew they were easier to grab by hand instead of with the tricky scoops or tongs.
I loved having a candy bar MOST because the kids got all sugared up and then were busting hilarious moves on the dance floor so all the adults got on the dance floor to join them and it was a blast.
Photos like this resulted:
lol it was awesome!
Anyway, people also didn’t really have to use the bags if they just wanted to grab one or two pieces here or there as they were pre-wrapped.
I’d HIGHLY recommend buying at Costco and Amazon if you have a prime membership. I dont know exactly how much I paid but we had A LOT of candy and because it was the tasty kind – it was VERY popular and flooded my dance floor!

This is my inspiration photo. I love the candy buffets that match the wedding colors!
If everyone could share where they got their candy from, that would be really helpful!

I used the official m & m website for our m & m’s.
Then I used candywarehouse.com and candydirect.com
