We don’t want to do a traditional favor as I’ve found it’s not a big deal to guests and I hate to waste the money on something they won’t use or even take home.
Originally I thought about a candy buffet, but sort of feel like they’re overdone.
As a former pastry chef, desserts are a BIG deal to me and I had planned on adding some cookies and other baked goodies to the candy buffet.
We will have about 100-125 guests including a lot of kids in all different ages. It’s a casual wedding where I work, a nice ballroom space.
As a guest, would you prefer a dessert buffet of only baked goods, a candy buffet, a mix of the two, just Ben & Jerry’s cups, or just wedding cake?

All of them above!!!
I seriously love desserts. I would be so happy with any of those choices. Ben & Jerrys is amazing amazing amazing though, so I vote for that.

holy crap I was like “ehhhh pastries plus cake, probably not going to eat it all… ehhhh candy buffet, but what if it’s candy I don’t like?…. I guess both—- WAIT BEN AND JERRY’S!? HECK YES!”
Please go with Ben and Jerry’s. Yum. I would be eating it on the drive home. With or without a spoon.

I would go with a selection of cookies/candy to go along with the cake . But that’s cause I’m lactose intolerant.

I am also having a vermont wedding and felt as though we HAD to have B&J cups so we are doing those with the wedding cake. My mom insisted on doing a candy buffet as well so we are doing that also.

I agree Ben & Jerry’s is AWESOME. However! Is it going to be really hot that day? If so, make sure you have a cooler or something, I’d be worried about them melting :/

The ice cream comes in a freezer cart, so no worries about it melting, and we’d be inside a ballroom.
Thanks, ladies! If nothing else I know I’m not alone in wanting lots of sweets 🙂

ICE CREAM! I love ice cream so much, especially with wedding cake, and I think most people do! I would eat B&J’s in my sleep!
