I haven’t seen a candy bar – but I have seen a soda bar with a bunch of different soft drinks.

Candy buffets are a great hit but I personally love the photo booths more, the guests just have sooo much more fun!

The best place to get the apothecary jars and such is TJ Maxx, Ross or Marshalls.  They have huge ones for really inexpensive…

One of my friends had a candy bar at her wedding reception. They had their florist put it together.

They had cellophane bags with monogrammed stickers to close the bags. Their candy bar had all different types of candy in their wedding colors. But I’ve also seen in done with one type of candy—gum balls— in all different colors with the tag line "Have a Ball!"

I thought that was really cute! And they just bought the gum balls in bulk at a local candy store. The containers were purchased at Pier 1 and World Market for really cheap.

We’re doing a candy buffet for our wedding too.  Our whole wedding is candy themed.  We decided not to chose wedding colors because then you are limited to just a few types of candy in your buffet (if you are concerned about being all matchy).  We are using rainbow colors (bright colorful bouquets for the bridesmaids and for the tables) so that our candy buffet can have as many candies as possible.

I think the trick to doing a really good buffet is to have an over abundance of candy.  A couple of jars filled with some candy will not feed your 120+ guests.  We have about 18-20 different shaped containers as well we will be making cotton candy trees, candy trees and suckers trees to help fill out the buffet.  It has to look like a fantasy candy store if you ask me!  Just watch the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for some inspiration.

 I’ve looked online and have never found a photo of a candy buffet that I really liked.  I find that they look like there isn’t enough candy so my Fiance and I are spending a lot of time (and unfortunately…cash) on making our buffet a centrepiece/focal point of our wedding.  We are going to have our cake right in the middle of it.  I think I’m more excited about the buffet than about the actual wedding. 😉

We did one! None of the guest’s had ever seen before and everyone loved it. People are still talking about it. My little neice is three and she saw a picture of it on my phone the other day and got all excited. She was like, “Hey!! You remember when we went there!!!” It was cute. 

Anyways, I wrote a detailed blog entry on what we did (where we got the bags, what size, what type of candy, etc.) I remember it took me forever to make all the little decisions and I wasn’t able to find as many tips on the subject as I would have liked. So I decided to share what worked the best for us.
