I’m so confused on which kind of candy buffet guest would enjoy….Should I stick to my wedding colors and only use candy that is blue and green or should I have more of a variety and have all colors and flavors???

I think the color candy buffets really pop. But if you and your Fiance don’t like blue/green candy, then try to find colored signs or containers for the buffet. I guess it really depends if you can find what you want for candy in blue and green.

We stuck with our wedding colors. I bought it in bulk from candy.com and you can sort by color! That made it really easy to find things we liked in our colors.

I would try to stick to your colors, and if it doesn’t work, then branch out.

What kind of candy did you buy?

@brittgrace13: We got M&Ms, jelly bellys, rock candy, chocolate colored jordan almonds, candy sticks (kind of like candy canes but in different colors)…they all came in a wide variety of colors. I also stalked all of the dollar stores in our area for candy in our colors to supplement our candy buffet with some other options.

We stuck with our wedding colors, purple green, and white. I tried hard to not buy just apple and grape flavors. I think we ended up with a good variety.

My wedding was two weeks before Halloween so we went with a “Trick or Treat” theme. All clear glass jars and bowls, kraft paper tin tie bags with “Trick or Treat” rubber stamped on them, small metal jack-o-lantern bowls to hold the bags and a picture of our dog holding a bag of Reese’s with “Trick or Treat” superimposed on top. Our candy was a mixture of wrapped and unwrapped, fun sized Mars brand, Hershey’s kisses, Ghiardelli and candy corn, mello creme pumpkins, etc. I’ll post a picture when I can.

That was the same problem we had, but the colors were dark pink, white and black. Most black candies were licorice flavored, so we added silver in as well as chocolate.

I just went to a 1-year old party with a candy theme. As a guest, honestly, I don’t care about the color theme – I want the candy I like! You can encorporate your colors with ribbons or gift bags, etc…. but, if you are having trouble sticking with your color theme, I don’t think you need to hold to it hard and fast. I definitely think it’s cute when there is a color theme, but I think you could pull off something great with a lot of colors as well.

Also think about your venue and type of wedding. If you are having a more upscale wedding, then staying within the colors looks a lot nicer.
Our wedding was blue and orange, so all my candy was blue, orange and white.
I had – blue gummy sharks, blue & orange vanilla seahorse lollipops (which we handmade), mini jawbreakers, blue & orange saltwater taffy, blue & orange jelly beans, peanuts, and blue dove chocolates.
With orange, there are numerous choices besides just ‘orange flavored’. Our saltwater taffy was mango (and the blue was passion fruit), and the jelly beans were orange crush, and the lollipops were both made from vanilla flavored candymelts.

We did our colors, purple, gold, and ivory. I had lots of grape candy, but people still loved it. The gold however, was a life saver, since I was able to use chocolate candies that had gold wrappings.
Maybe you could throw in some silver and add in a little bit of something else.
