    @Ms. Sweet tooth: The nice thing about a candy buffet is that it doubles as a favor. But they’re becoming really popular and a s’mores bar just sounds so cool. I don’t know what to choose.

    Personally I think smores are pretty messy to eat, so I wouldn’t want to have them when I was dressed up. Of course lots of people love them and would just eat them anyway.

    Smores sound fun but messy.  I mean, I don’t think that would stop me at a wedding, but some people might be more concerned.  Both sound good though!

    Is your wedding outdoors? Because smores at an indoor wedding would be kind of out of place. I’ve never really felt the urge to eat them other than when out camping!

    I adore s’mores but would feel weird eating them at a wedding… sooooo messy, especially if I’m in formal clothes.

    I would say do both if you can :). The candy bar is sort of a favor, and the smores are an in-the-moment treat. Since you can take the candy home, I don’t think you’ll have to worry about a sugar overload.

    Ok I see what you are saying. Then I say both! Especially since you have such a large wedding, it makes sense to have lots of options.

    For the mess factor, could you have them pre assembled and mini sized? so they are bite sized and cute, rather than big and messy?

    I may be biased because we’re doing a s’mores bar, but I definitely vote for the messy chocolatey s’mores! We’re doing a twist with gormet s’more recepies including grasshopper smore (using andes mint chocolate), oreo s’mores (cookies and creme chocolate with chocolate graham crackers and a touch of sea salt), etc. It can be a lot of fun. It may be messy but I think people will be excited to try a new twist on something they already know and love. 🙂

    I’ve never seen a smores bar before. I think thats a cute and different idea!

    Darn it!  Are s’mores becoming “a thing” at weddings now?  Our venue has a fire pit and as soon as we saw it, we both said “s’mores!” at the same time.  If this becomes as trendy as a candy buffet, I’m going to be so bummed!
