I think that is a geat idea. If you are having games out for your guests, I would put some on the tables with the games. If I was a guest, I wouldn’t mind it at all.

goldfish, m&ms, marshmallows, raisins, sunflower seeds, pretzels, maybe some nuts? Those are things I put in when I make it….

you could get the m&ms in your wedding colors too.

oooh – I like it – but, I’m a big ‘nuts’ girl but nuts are more expensive than candy, typically.

You could do component parts of trail mix (like pretzels, raisins, sunflower seeds, m&m’s or chocolate chips, dried cranberries/cherries, yogurt covered anything, etc.) – and then have everyone mix their own. 

Super cute idea!  I think it work out great!!!

Sounds yummy!!  Would you put out ingredients, so that your guests can put together their own snack mix, or would you put out different combinations of pre-mixed snack mix?  Both sound like good ideas to me!  Fiance loves Chex mix, so we just decided to add that to our Out of Town bags.  Yay snack mixes!!

@ sooner – Just a note, don’t go too crazy with the colored m & m’s – those are super expensive.

We got ours at candyopolis & they were $12 per lb!!!

By The Way – sounds fun & yummy! 😉

That sounds delicious!

Costco and Walmart both have bulk trail mixes in at least a 1lb bag (might be larger?) that are very inexpensive and may be cheaper than putting them together yourself. You can just pour them into a bowl and let people take what they want.

How did it turn out? Does anyone have any ideas to add about what to include on the trail mix bar and what is affordable?

Okay…so I guess this is older, but we did something sort of like this at my wedding and it went over really well!!!  The guests got to have fun making bowls full of different things (pretzels, goldfish, chex mix, popcorn, m&m’s) and it was great for them to snack on when they got to the reception hall (while they were waiting for the bridal party to arrive).  I had thought about a candy buffet, but I am more of a salty snacker when I am hungry (plus, I figured they’d already have cake later on!)
