Ummm…I would think it looked pretty…I wouldn’t take any bc we don’t have a bath tub…I’m not sure men would really understand it but I think some ladies would love it! If you really want to do a candy buffet I’d just do it, who cares if your sister had the same idea (it’s not like she’s the first person to do it either).

I think it would look very nice, but honestly, how many people do you know that actually use bath salts. What about a cookie bar instead. We are doing a combo candy/cookie bar.

I think it could be cool, but I am not sure how popular it would be.  I only know a handful of people who take baths, and I actually know quite a few people who are very sensitive to perfumey scents.  I feel like if you did a bath bar, there would be quite a few things leftover.

Could you still do a buffet in the realm of food?  Popcorn, cookies, smores and pretzels are a couple of ideas.

I had a coworker who went to a wedding with a cupcake bar-lots of different types of cake, frosting, and things to decorate them with (sprinkles, m&ms, etc), and then a little box to take it home in.  he was a 30something man and he RAVED about it… it’d be a little different, but fun

I’d do a candy bar anyway. I think the bath bar will probably cause some issues: mainly that men won’t understand it, many women don’t take baths, and some women (me) are very sensitive to perfumes.

I probably could not even sit at a table NEAR the bath bar, much less go over to it. Just food for thought.

It’s a neat idea but I don’t think a whole lot of people will take home the salts. I actually think that in a dinner-type setting having a whole bunch of bath salts will seem out of place. It seems more fitting for a bridal shower or something.

On the very rare occasion that I do take a bath, I don’t use bath salts because they irritate my skin.  I like the cupcake bar that a PP suggested.  You could have your bakery set that up probably.  Or just do something small like milk and cookies later in the evening.

Yeah do a candy bar anyways. I like the bath salts, as a woman who bathes regularly, but I don’t think most people would take any

I agree that a cookie/cupcake bar would be fantastic…if your venue is open to allowing a candy bar, I can’t see then denying you a dessert bar.  I think that a bath salts bar is a terrific idea for a shower, but for the wedding, I think you will be left with most of the bath salts to take home yourself.

What about an ice cream bar??? That would be awesome! The venue could supply the ice cream and you could supply the candy toppings 🙂

This may be completely off base, but how about having a photo booth where guests can take them home as souveniers, but also if they print double prints you get a copy as well as a keepsake. This doesn’t involve food and photobooths are a lot of fun.

Go ahead and have the candy buffet.  Your color scheme is probably different than your sisters and you can have different types of candy and a different package for guests to take them home in.
