@VeganGlam – oh, scoops and wrapped candy are a must at my buffet … I am a nurse therefore I am a germophobe. Only a handful of items aren’t individually wrapped (and some were ordered wrapped at extra expense) and there will be scoops available and displayed in any non-wrapped items (gourmet jelly beans, and M&M’s). People in my family are good at policing their kids, so I am not too concerned about grubby hands!!

I disinfect my toilets everytime people leave my home. I hate other people butts. I like my butt. I like FI’s butt. I’m comfortable with those areas. Everyone else’s butts are gross and I HATE when people use the bathroom in my house. We have a ton of friends and they’re always here so needless to say I am constantly disinfecting my toilet. I clean it about every other day.
Sometimes with a Q tip to get those hard to reach, under spots.

I didn’t even realize that candy buffets came with unwrapped candy. That’s gross, okay, now I hate them too!
But I think that we will put tootsie rolls and york patties (wrapped!) in apothecary jars near the doors at the end of the reception for people to take as they leave. Truthfully, my real reason to do it is that I want pretty apothecary jars for my bathroom! And this way I can say they’re cost-effective.
Ha, my Fiance just read this and said we should have the candies (my favorite and one of his) in separate jars at the beginning of the wedding and then set them out again at the end but all mixed together! Oh, he’s so corny, that’s why I love him.

Haha. I totally respect your opinion, but I’m so doing one! We’re getting married at Halloween, so we’re going to stock it full of all of our favs plus some handmade goodies (cake pops, chocolate covered oreos, petit fours. etc) slaved over my moi. We’re going for more a “trick-or-treating’ kind of thing.
I’ve never been to a wedding with a candy buffet, so mine will be the first!

Although I have to say, I was expecting an uglier wedding cake…

@ZIPPY—OH my goodness. You have made me eat my words. A candy buffet is COMPLETELY fitting for a halloween wedding! I would probably do that too in your circumstance. I love it.

This is really funny!
I’ve never actually been to a wedding with a candy buffet before so I can’t say one way or the other.
@zippylef – that is a cute idea to do one for a Halloween wedding though!

Not a fan of candy buffets for weddings, maybe a sweet 16 party it would be cute.

@veganglam- I am with you on this- I thought candy buffets should be gourmet truffles and chocolates… mmm…

@Virginia- Yeah. The Halloween thing is pretty much the only reason I thought of doing one. Otherwise, probably not. I do have to say that I expected the cake to be WAY uglier. lol. I was picturing this

Virginia – Yes, we are hoping to bring in pizza for whoever is still there.

@VM yea, well… um… I HATE YOUR FACE. jk! 🙂
I’m not having a candy buffet but I don’t have any deep-seated emotional reaction to them. My cousin had one but it was fancy-type candy and kind of bleh (like who really eats rock candy on pretty sticks?). Whatevs.
But ummm @ejs– what exactly do you mean by “chocolate bleh”?? You should prob hand over those DDs bc you’re clearly not a girl. 🙂
