I’m going to do a non- color coordinated candy buffet. Since our colors are brown, tan, and pink we’d be stuck with mostly chocolate, which could get messy. What I’m going to do instead is paint the containers in our colors so it looks coordinated enough for me.

Instead of making the candy itself match, what about just matching the containers and signs?  Then you could just get your faves and not worry.

It’s a toss up for me… I love the look of a color coordinated candy buffet (and for me it shoul dbe easy: blue and white).  But I can get more variety if the candy is a mix of different colors (plus it adds color and spice to the wedding).

We just did the candy it its normal packaging and it looked fine.

When I look at the candywarehouse blue colors, I see a lot that look very similar to “Malibu”…here are some pictures.

I would taste the candy first. Malibu is very pretty, but Im not sure candy that color would taste good.   I would lean towards regular candy and getting containers and signs in your wedding colors.

I am not colour coordinating my candy buffet. I want it to look fun and like candy! We are chosing our fav and our family’s fav candies and going with those choices.

What is your goal with the candy buffet?  What do you love about candy?  What are you favorites?

Go from there…if your favorites are candy that just does not come in blue, then tie in the color scheme with the decorations around the candy rather than the candy itself…!

You could do a lot of blue candy!  M&M’s come in every color.  Saltwater taffy comes in a million flavors = colors.  How about little bags of cotton candy?  Yum!  If your wedding isn’t for a while you can start stocking up now.  Buy Easter candy on clearance next Spring.  🙂  We got quite a bit after Valentine’s Day since we were looking for red.

We waited until the last minute to buy licorice and saltwater taffy, because that does get stale.  A lot of other stuff that was all bagged up will have dates on it, though.  I just looked around everwhere I went and picked up what looked yummy and was on sale (and red).  I guess I was only at it for less than 6 months between when we decided and the wedding, but I ended up with TONS of candy – we had SO much leftover.  I was going for the look more than the right amount, though – I wanted the containers full!
