@MichiganGirl24:  We had 100 cupcakes, a giant wedding cake, about 300 cookies.  I provided little boxes for people to take cake home in. 

In retrospect, I would have nixed the giant wedding cake, had 50 cupcakes and a few layer cakes, and added some pies/cobblers/tarts/brownies.

We had mostly candies since we also had cake.  The big hits were Russel Stovers chocolates, full size candy bars, and the coolest of all, we had plastic champagne glasses filled with M&Ms and a cupcake on top.  All of those were gone before the reception even started, but from the pictures, they looked really cute!

On the tables I’m having little pies on sticks so people can snack while they chat and then I’m going to have a giant cake with boxes so people can save some for later, then probably some things that fit in with our summer/patriotic theme..chocolate covered strawberries, maybe some cookies or brownies, and assorted candy

If you can find them, try including French Macarons. They are sooo tasty, delicate, cute, and it’s not likely many of your guests have had them because not many bakeries sell them. They’re a bit on the expensive side (often $1-2.50 each, and they’re only bite-sized), but I HAD to have them at my wedding. You can search Yelp for bakeries near you where people have mentioned them in their reviews, or buy boxes of them online if they can’t be found near you.
