    Yes! They can get all they want....

    Candy buffets are not a favor but an attraction

    No, you should also give each guest an individual favor

    It's your wedding, do what you want!

    Yes! And remember, favors are not something that are required, anyway. :p

    I’d say you’re good!! Especially if you intend for them to pack up a bag and bring it home.

    I think so! I know I’m in the minority, but I don’t really “get” the idea of favors? Like, a few years ago, NOONE did favors! Now, if you don’t do favors, you’re like the black sheep of weddings. I think they are kind of trumped up and unnecessary. To me a catered dinner, candy buffet, open bar and evening of entertainment is “favor” enough. Most of the little tacky things people give away at weddings just get thrown away in the end anyway.

    A candy buffet is a great idea and is definitely enough for a favor!

    We are having a candy buffet as our favors. 

    We plan on either leaving their empty containers at their seats with a note on it to check out the buffet.  And if anything, I’ll just be making cake pops (Google: Bakerella, cake pops) and leaving one one each place setting with a note to head to the candy buffet for more sweets.

    I do agree with some of the other bees though.  Favors are totally unnecessary.  Dinner, dancing, alchol and the honor being invited to share in your special day is favor enough.  When going through our guest list the way I described it to Mr. (who invited everyone he ever knew and their mama to their wedding) was, ‘Are you willing to spend $100+ on this person?’ and that narrowed it down real quick.  You’re already spending a lot on everyone, so a favor is just an added bonus.

    I love the idea of the candy bar as favors! There is this great little shop in our hometown (where the actual wedding will be) that rents out all the containers and scoops, so all we have to do is get the candy! The store owner gave me 2 great websites for bulk candy and some general information about amounts too – if you’re interested I’d definitely share them with you!
