I don’t think you have to change the buffet if you don’t want to. If it does bother you, however, could you coordinate with her so that you each offer different candies? 

Or maybe you could come up with a different type of buffet? How about little bite sized baked good? Cookies, cupcakes, mini pies, etc.?

Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about it.  I do like @FloretteLiz:‘s idea though to have different candies!  Just talk to her about it and see if you can coordinate something a little different.

I think itll be totally fine, and maybe you could just make sure you have diff color and flavors and stuff like that!

It’s really not that big of a deal, IMHO. Continue onward with your plans. Your weddings are 8 months apart. Maybe it’ll be a really great money saving technique and you guys can share props and stuff.

I think it is totally fine, just do as others have suggested and have different candy and packages to put the candy in and it will be fine.

I promise on the big day it wont matter at all 🙂

Why not do a cookie or dessert buffet instead? Just to change it up a bit for the guests who go to both.

I think the recipe book is a really cute idea. You can start “baking”, probably a month before as in you could make the cookie dough then and stick it in the freezer. My freshman year of college, I made cookie dough over Thanksgiving break, brought it back with me to college and stuck it in the freezer. Then right before finals, I pulled them out, shaped into balls and baked for all my friends and professors. I’d say perhaps 3 cookies per person? You could also order bulk cookie dough from some wholesale place, if you have one in your area.

I imagine that you’ll be super busy in the days leading up to your wedding, so you want to get the actual baking out of the way. You should use recipes that will give you super soft cookies, because the longer they sit, the less soft they’ll get. Or you could just bake crisp cookies (like Tate’s) so you don’t need to worry about them. Here’s the recipe I used back then. I made 3 logs with different chips (spearmint, peppermint, toffee): http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/chocolate-gooey-butter-cookies-recipe/index.html

The cookies keep well (1-2 weeks I think?) and stay really soft.

I personally love popcorn buffets. And they come in so many colors and flavors…. seems like it would be more exciting for guests to try than candy!
