    I like candy of all colors. Candy is all about fun, different colors are fun. The colors you’ve listed could be pretty limiting variety wise.

    I think I would see what kinds of candy are offered in your colors-if this is enough variety, go with your colors! If not, do all colors.

    I voted go with your colors, because that sounds like what you want to do. And if it is what you want to do do it! I personally would go with all colors of candy and then bags and containers that match my colors.

    I just went to a wedding with a green and white candy buffett and it was beautiful and tasty!

    Adding brown you can add chocolate! Sounds perfect to me!

    If you want limited colours go for it!

    Hi there,

    We were the ones that actually did the all green candy buffet seen above (Candy Culture).  I would definitely go with something that matches your colour scheme.  It brings a new level to the candy buffet – acts as both a decorative element and a delicious snack for your guests.  If you are going to go the multi candy route, I would stick to still having a set number of colours or sticking to all pastels, or all neon or all primary colours – something to unify the buffet.  For other photos of candy buffets you can go to our blog at http://www.candyculture.ca.

    I thought about using colors matched the wedding.  But Fiance and I love chocolates, especially dark chocolate so we want to share to people what we like.  That being said, we will just have all the ones that we love to eat.  Kit Kats, PB M&Ms, etc etc…We figured it’s a candy bar.  We should get all the colors we can get 🙂

    Just use a color matched bag or sth to tie the theme together. OR use containers matched your color theme to hold the candies 🙂

    Otherwise I don’t think people will complain much about the decor as long as the candies are tasty!

    I had a candy buffet and loosely stuck to my wedding colors. Navy, pink and gold. I nixed navy since that was a hard color to get.
    options for you:
    1. Use a mix of the 3 colors
    2. Stick with brown and white chocolate candy and use a green tablecloth and green labels on the vases.

    I don’t personally like the way candies of a variety of colors look at weddings. I think the most elegant ones are brown/white/ivory with flowers surrounding them, but I am totally boring.

    I also think white candies and chocolates (brown, obviously) would look really nice with what you’re describing.

    I don’t think you will have much trouble sticking with your wedding colours…if you walk into a Bulk Barn (are those in the US or just Canada?) or similar bulk candy store, you can see all the options you have. I just did a quick Google image search of “green candy buffet” and found a ton of options. I don’t think you have to stick with “sage green” as the only colour of candy, but variations of green would be fine with dark brown and white/ivory.
