    The prettiest candy bars to me are the ones that choose only a few colors- the wedding colors? rather than just a hodge podge of all colors of candies.

    Limit the number of choices you have so the table isn’t so busy looking that you can’t even tell what’s there. Nobody needs 20 choices of candy.

    Search the net for inspiration on containers, layouts , favor bags or boxes to guide your decisions.

    Do a search here on WeddingBee “where to buy candy”  You will find lots of suggestions.

    We’re kinda doing one to fill the gap for evening guests between arriving and the evening food being served. We’ve just bought a little silver pot for each table which we’ve decorated and will fill with little chocolates and biscuits. I think it’s a cute addition.

    Candy bars are totally in right now. Well, I could be biased, we had one at ours.We bought our candy from acandywarehouse.com

    Here’s a photo of our candy bar:

    Hello, I work at a candy store so I may be able to help you out! (Plus I am doing my own!) So generally you can do it from anywhere from $50-150 for 50 people. This is my works website. (We are a family owned business so our prices might be a little higher BUT unlike candywarehouse.com you do not have a minimum order you must make. & we do NOT mark up shipping. Also, all of our stuff is fresh because of how often we rotate it. & with me being a bride myself, I wouldnt order from any other place.) So anyway, the website is.. shopthebulkstore.com I promise you will be pleased with the selection. Oh, and anything you CANT find on the website, call and ask for Steve (The owner) and he will do everything in his power to get you the candy you want (even if we dont carry it)

    Once you purchase your boxes/bags you will be able to determine how much per person. I did about 4oz per person. (over estimate im sure.)

    I’ll try to remember to upload a picture of ours when I get home.  We went way overboard and had tons of leftovers, but I was focused on the look (filling the jars) more than having the right amt of candy. 

    We just started buying whatever was red and was on sale the months before the wedding and putting it away.  Most candy stays fresh for a while so it was no problem.  We got some stuff on Amazon (huzzah for Prime) and got stuff that might get stale in the week or two before the wedding (yogurt covered pretzels and saltwater taffy). 

    Which reminds me I also need to post all my glassware for sale and get it out of my house!  🙂
