    for as much as i’ve seen it on the blogs, I haven’t ever seen one in real life! and in the past 2 years i’d have to use my fingers AND toes to count the weddings we’ve attended.  If you’re looking to get featured on a blog next year, I’d say skip it and make up a new trend. But if you aren’t (what i’m guessing!) rock that buffet – your guests will love it! Chances are they haven’t seen one either.

    I know they are becoming more common, but I haven’t been to a wedding yet that had one. If you like it then do it! Who cares if it’s over done, it’s your day!

    I agree with those who said they’re popular on wedding blogs and such, but not so much in real life.

    We did a candy buffet at our wedding last September, and no one had ever even heard of the idea. They thought it was so unique.

    It’s funny – a friend of mine and I were just talking about this – and we’ve never been to a wedding with a candy buffet and REALLY wish we knew someone who would have one at their wedding soon! I say go for it – if that’s what you want, have one! Chances are – nobody’s seen one before (Up until two years ago my mother had never been to a wedding where there were cupcakes instead of cake and thought that it was sooo cool).

    Seriously love the idea! Am definately planning on having one (in my dreams for now… ::sigh::) Especially because with the BF having 10 nieces and nephews it’ll be a hit with them too!!

    I think we, as brides, become inudated by online stuff, and don’t realize that not too many people at our own weddings spend as much time reading bridal blogs as we do.  Yes, a candy buffet is trendy, but many of your guests will have not seen or even heard of them before – it’s especially cool if you are a candy-aholic ๐Ÿ™‚  I say go for it!

    I hope they’re not too overdone; I’m really hoping to have one and my wedding isn’t for another year and a half (and a couple months, but who’s counting).  Even if it’s not the first time guests have seen it, I think they’ll enjoy it–and for some, it might be new news!  Another vote in the “go for it!” pile ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think they’re old news but I’ve never seen one done at any weddings I’ve been to. I love them and I’m going to do one because I think it would be great for the kids (not little kids – we have mostly 8-13 yr. olds). Plus I don’t really want to put together favors and I thought it would add some nice color to our reception (I looove my jars – found them at TJMaxx for dirt cheap).

    They’re definitely not overdone. I go to about 3 or 4 weddings a year and have yet to see ANY of the trends that are talked about in the blogosphere, let alone a candy buffet.

    no.  we might see it a lot here online, but i’ve never actually been to a wedding with a candy buffet or most of the stuff we see here online.  I’d love to see any of this stuff in real-life.  Go for it!

    I think that as wedding blog stalkers, we forget that not everyone knows as much about weddings as we do. Sure, photobooths, candy buffets, and mustaches on sticks have been in a ton of weddings all over the internet, but think about the number of weddings each of your guests has probably been to in the past several years. They have no idea! If you want one, do it!

    I have never even seen a candy buffet.  Not ever.  It sounds like a dream to me.  Go for it!
