Me and my boyfriend love having sweets and candy’s. not so much cakes and other desserts like that we had the idea of having a candy bar with the old 1 cent candys and other small things like that, having them on a table in martini glasses set up like a buffet and have them standing at different hights, good idea or bad??

I love candy so this is a great idea! We wanted to do it, but it just wasn’t in our budget.

My Grandpa was the most pumped about our candy bar because there was a whole container of Jordan Almonds.
I’d still pick cake over candy, though. I love wedding cake. So I’d change my vote if you’re doing candy INSTEAD of cake.

i will still do a wedding cake and possibly some cupcakes but the main dessert would be the candy

I think a candy bar is a really cute idea, but it only works for certain themes. If you’re having a black-tie affair, a candy bar won’t work so well. If you’re having a vintage/rustic/whimsical/etc style wedding, then it will be great.

Since we had take-out containers with ours and that was basically our favor – no one really ate any during the reception. That’s something to consider.
Also candy can be classy. 🙂 Maybe not black-tie, but classy.

I just went to my first wedding with a candy bar, and after reading all about them on the Bee I was excited to see it, but felt like it was just “meh” when I actually saw it. Maybe it depends on the type of candies. This wedding also had chocolate dipped fruit (already dipped, not a fountain), cookies and bite-sized cakes, and slim slices of wedding cake. I think my favorite dessert item was the chocolate covered banana pieces.

My SO’s friend had a candy bar at her wedding, and honestly, I thought it was tacky. It was a cute idea, but it was such a traditional elegant wedding that a gummy worm buffet just didn’t mesh. I think having a mini one for the kids would be cute, but at such a formal event, it seems juvenile. Sorry if I sound like a kill joy. I think it was just how they did it that irked me.

I love the idea, but I would also include something other than candy 🙂
Cookies? I love cookies. LOL

No cake? I ain’t going so there! LOL
I love the idea and I also love candy, I would probably eat all the m&m’s so hide those please…

These are tremendously popular right now and so there must be lots of people out there that like it but I’m not really a candy person so I probably wouldn’t eat much. That being said, my fiance would pig out, so it’s mostly a personal thing. But if it’s something you like go for it! I just urge you to care more about the taste/quality of candy rather than going for a particular look/color.

I’m not a candy fan so this doesnt work for me.
