I am in the process of putting together a Candy Buffett for my wedding in 3 weeks! My goal is to keep the candy around $100 for $100 people… it is going to be tough, I know!! I think what I am going to do is start with the cheaper candies first, Big 5pound bag of gummies at BJs $7, and keep going that way and then throw in a few more expensive candies. What did everyone else do?
Anyone with a Candy Buffett budget under $200? Show me your pictures!

For 100 people, that might be kind of hard. I have a friend who is loaning me all of her jars for candy from her wedding, so I just have to buy the candy and I’m budgeting more like $400 for 120 people. She said she got all of hers online, just search for bulk candy!

It’s definitely do-able. My sister spent about $250 on hers, had almost 300 people at the wedding, and had some candy left over. It really just depends on how much you want, and how many people you think will go for it.

This is mine! I only had 50 guests and I had a lot of candy left over. I asked people what their favorites were and got almost everything on-line, including a lot of retro and hard to get candies. I think I spent around 200$? I bought my jars at places like Old Time Pottery, Ross, and The Dollar Store. One of the websites I used was acandystore.com, they have a great selection and some cheaper stuff.

We did a trail mix buffet because we had more of an outdoorsy/rustic theme. Same concept though. I have pics if u r interested. It cost us no more than $10 for all.
