    @laura.batty:  It’s definitely a unique spin on the candy buffet! Does it fit with the rest of your wedding decor/theme? Overall, I think it is fun and if you and your fiance love it, that’s what matters.

    One thing to consider as you invest in a candy buffet…a colleague of mine hosted her daughter’s wedding this past summer. She said the candy buffet was hardly touched and resulted in a lot of wasted candy (and money). Maybe scale back some of the options and/or offer all of them but in smaller amounts.

    I agree with pp, ive noticed the candy buffet doesn’t get much attention so I wouldn’t go overboard if you want to save $ but at the same time it’s going to make for some cute pics! The eyeball ones are so cool, can’t believe they’re edible 😮

    Also the green & blue heartsicles dont remind me of Addams family much, though I love everything else 🙂

    Instead of doing a candy bar, maybe make up goodie bags (one voodoo cookie, one eyeball lollipop, couple hard candies), and use those as your favors. Candy buffets tend to be a waste but a little bag at each place setting as a favor – people will take!

    It depends in the crowd, I’ve heard of people running out of candy, of people snacking on them the whole night, and some threads even talk about some people taking multiple bags home, so it really depends on the crowd and your budget. I personally love candy and the visual impact a nice candy bar creates.

    I voted maybe. I love your options! But I think everything together would be overboard, personally.

    I would choose 1 or 2 of those items you have, and make REALLY cute displays for your “focus point” of the candy buffet. So like, let’s take the voodoo cookies and suckers for instance.. buy/make a really cute sucker tree or stand, and paint/decorate it up in your colors. Create or buy a cute tiered display stand for the cookies.

    Around these you can add normal type candies in your colors.

    That candy doesn’t look like it tastes good. I suspect you’d have a lot of pricey candy left over at the end of the night.

    we ran out of candy before my husband and i entered the recpetion so it really depends on your crowd . i would do the voodoo cookies and cats but nothing else–the rest dont look yummy.

    It reminds me more of a Halloween party than a wedding.

    I think the jewel candies are really cool.  I feel like the rest is just halloween decor.

    @laura.batty:  The feathers are really, really freaking cool.  Are they chocolate?

    @laura.batty:  The Voodoo cookies are adorable! I agree with PP though, I think all of it all at once would be too much. I’m also not a big fan of the blood dipped/splattered looking treats. Maybe for a Holloween party, but not a wedding. Have you thought about doing punch with dry ice, so it has that misty, witches brew look? 

    I am really loking forward to your recap! What a fun theme. I always loved that show.
