I am having a candy bar. I had alot of the same questions. I would recommend going to http://WWW.candywarehouse.com they have a whole demo and tutorial on doing a candy buffet. And tons of different types of candy. If you search online you can find discount coupon codes for them aswell. However, be prepared to pay alot for shipping no matter where you order your candy from.

depending on what your colors and theme are you can even buy candy after holidays on clearance. I am doing white and black and red and stocked up after Valintines Day!

Good Luck!

I had 150lbs of candy on my buffet and almost none left over. Our wedding was about 145 people

wow the spacing is weird there. I know right after my wedding (almost 3 years ago now) I posted the exact list of what I had purchased, Ill see if I can find it. I just went to BJs the day before the wedding, grabbed, and left lol. I did buy some specialty stuff in NYC a few weeks prior

 

ETA – here it is

 

ok in regards to the candy buffet – all I really did was go to BJs the day before the wedding and grab and run lol. Saw something, thought itd be good, grabbed it. I had about 130 adults, 15 kids, and left with minimal candy. I did put glassine bags on the buffet, and people were walking around all evening with them. I did buy some specialty candy from Dylans candy bar (rock candy and siwrly lollipops and those stick candy like peppermint sticks…things that are hard to find) I have my BJs receipt in front of me, here is what I bought: (total: $166.05)

1 bag of Starbursts

1 bag of those caramel cremes

2 bags of mini resses PB cups

1 box of peppermint patties

1 bag of tootsie roll midgees

2 bags of skittles

3 bags of hershey kisses

1 bag of peanut m&ms

1 box of Nerds Ropes (HUGE hit)

1 container of Twizzlers

1 container of Crystal Light Sugar Free candies

2 bags of red Swedish Fish

1 box of 100 blow pops

1 container of peppermint puffs

At Dylans candy bar I bought

20 Rock Candy sticks in various flavors

2 bags of cotton candy

20 stick candies

5 giant swirly lollipops

Had gifted to me

5lbs of white plain m&ms (unless youre going for monotone, go regular. Those suckers were EXPENSIVE!)

several bags of Buckeyes Candies (chocolate PB – an Ohio State Thing)

My venue provided the containers (score!) but found many of them at Michaels, Pier 1, ebay, and online.

They also assembled the buffet – but my hints are to keep one type of candy per jar so its not overwhelming to look at; scatter candy around the bases of the containers (so people arent afraid to touch it); use varying heights of jars AND the tablescape – they stacked something under the tablecloth to make sections of teh actual table higher and it looked incredible; dont overanalyze. I didnt even think about it. Just walked into BJs, grabbed, and left in about 15 minutes flat. There is such a selection its easy. I did read somewhere to be sure you have 8-10 different types of candies, and about 8-10lbs of each. I went over that, but we used it for favors as well as during the reception so we wanted to be sure we had plenty.

Oh – and to display the blowpops, I bought a large styrofoam cone from Michaels, painted it navy with Crayola Paint, and stuck the lollipops in there. We made a circle of them at the base so it wouldnt tip, then spaced them along the top and topped it with a giant swirly sucker. That is 100 blow pops in that cone!”
