We are doing a candy buffet as our wedding favors. Has anyone else done this for their wedding or is planning to do a candy buffet? All of the boards I could find are from 5+ years ago and I am looking for some recent advice! How much candy did you have per person? Also, what boxes or bags did you give to your guests to fill up? We are kind of between these clear takeout containers that we will put a personalized sticker/tag on and these bags with a personalized sticker. I have no idea how big these bags should be, either! Any advice would be so helpful!

A general guess is 1/2 lb per person. The chocolate was the clear favorite and we had lots of gummy candies left over. We used papermart.com. I cannto find the bag we used but this was similar

I have heard 1/2 lb before. I told Future Mother-In-Law that this is what is suggested and she basically laughed in my face and said that’s ridiculous how much that is and that it will be so expensive for everyone to have 1/2 lb of candy that she knows I want to do that but normally you give 10 almonds so she doesn’t see why they would need so much candy. If I go to a candy store and fill a bag of all types of candy I find it hard to not get at least a pound haha so 1/2lb to me seemed perfect. In my mind why would you set up a whole buffet and only let guests get 10 almonds worth?!
