My mom and I just placed an order on sams club.com and we paid under $100 for our candy buffet items for my brother’s wedding on June 2. We purchased enough for the 200+ guest.If you dont have a color prefence for your event you should purchase from Sam’s Club plus you can pick the items up at your local store. As for the candy bags I purchased white paper lunch bags ($1.68 for 50 @Walmart) I purchased 4 packs but decided to cut the bags in half to make 2 bags from 1 bc the bigger the bag the more ppl tend to place in their bags and stamped them with sweet inspired stamps uisng different color stamp pads from Dollar tree. Dollar tree online also sells vases of different shapes and sizes for a dollar. You can make the glasses look taller by gluing the candle holders they sell to the bottom of your glass or vase. AC Moore & Michaels usually have 40% off coupons online or in the newspaper every week..Go a few times before your wedding and purchase different shape vases using a coupon each time will save you a lot of $$$.

Thanks for the tips! I’m leaning toward a candy bar for my reception as well. I was afraid it would be very pricey! I have half as many guests as you so it’ll super cheap for us! Do you mind sharing how much candy you bought? I have no idea where to even start figuring out how much to buy!

@gingerlylove: Ditto!! were having 100 guests, and I dont wanna spend over 100 on candy since there are other expenses as well!
Maybe 3-4 bags of each candy?
