If you have a DJ or MC they can make the announcement. Or if you have someone greeting the guests as they arrive, maybe they can point out that the guests shouldn’t leave the reception until they have gotten some candy. You can also just have some key people around that can remind the guests that they can take the candy.

Hey, no one needs to announce candy to me 🙂  If I see it, I”m heading there!!

Have it set up somewhere that people’s eyes will go to. Like if you want them to get them on the way out place it right next to the door.

My cousin had a candy buffet at her wedding and people hit it shortly after entering the reception hall. The problem was, her photographer was still out taking pics of her and her new husband and so her wedding coordinator had to make an announcement for everyone to hold off until after the table could be photographed. So factor that in if you want photos of it taken.

Can you place a table in a place where your guests will have to walk past as they enter? You could put a sign on it, saying “Please take one” or something.

I cater candy buffets and have found that having the DJ announce it to the guests is the best way.  I recommend covering the candy buffet with an extra table cloth and don’t open it until your guests have eaten (if you’re feeding them) or until after the cake cutting, etc is done.  After that, uncover and have your photographer take plenty of pictures before having your DJ announce that the candy buffet is open and that they can help themselves.  I have found that this works the best.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that pictures were non existant of the candy buffet because the crowd beat the photographer there.  Good luck with yours!
