covering it might be a great idea – especially if there’s an attendant who can make sure nothing gets disturbed when it’s uncovered at the right time!

We’re kind of in the same predicament! We’re having a dessert buffet with a chocolate fountain – the lady at the venue tried to give me a complex about people double dipping! Who does that?! Do you really think someone would start eating at the fountain? Even if we did have someone standing there, what do they say, “ma’am, please don’t stick your finger back in the chocolate!”

We’re also having our wedding cake and monogrammed cookie favors. We’re planning on putting out small cake boxes so that people can take home the leftover dessert.

Almost a year later, we still have bags and bags of candy from our candy buffet in our freezer!  I was begging people to take more at the end of the night!  We even had a good number of kids at the reception and I didn’t notice anyone being too greedy. I find it shocking but I don’t think everyone loves candy as much as me 🙂

we didnt police it at all and we had no problems.  They set it up during dinner then covered it with white tablecloths until the announcement was made.  Even after that, people definitely behaved.  We also had over 1lb of candy per guest, so we werent concerned with running out.  Ive been to several weddings with them and Ive yet to see any issues

I put small glassine bags on the buffet so they couldnt be overfilled snywyas.  Also, we had 15 kids there.  Their parents kept them in check,
