We are thinking of having a dessert bar (with a little cutting cake) and a candy buffet for favors. Is this too much? I like both ideas, especially because we’re not having dancing at the reception (we’re having a Sunday brunch), so I want there to be enough for people to look at and do.
If we go with both, should we indicate that the candy buffet is the favor? I don’t think most wedding guests have heard of a candy buffet. Thoughts?

I had both and a cake – people loved it! I had a lot of cake leftover, but no biggie.

I am having a candy table, a dessert table and a full cake. I know my family 🙂 Though I have recently been considering having a chocolate fountain instead of a candy table because it will cost the same and be more fun.

I don’t think it’s too much! I’m sure your guests will love the options (the more the merrier!) We are planning to have both a dessert table and candy bar too, plus the cake of course!! My friend had a candy bar and chocolate fountain — both were very popular with the guests 🙂

In my opinion, you can never have too many sweets 🙂

I think having both is fine. It works with our theme because we are having a Halloween Wedding and usually you think about sweets when you think of Halloween! 🙂 So a huge candy buffet and then chocolate fondue pots for dipping!

As a bona fide sweet tooth, I say have it all. I think that people will know that the candy buffet is favours if you leave little bags for them to take some candy to go. YAY for sweets!

Thanks everyone! What type of food did you have/will you have at the dessert bar?

@redheadem: I’m having a brunch reception with no dancing too! We’re doing dessert bar w/no candy buffet (though I think it’s a dandy idea).
We have three small cakes monogrammed (one initial per cake), one chocolate fudge, one champagne and one tiramisu; A croquembouche with 100 cream puffs; a selection of delicious shortbreads (various flavors); and Macarons (also various flavors). I’m super excited about my desserts!
