I swear to god my mom calls me numerous times daily stressing about this stupid candy buffet table……. (Ok its not stupid Im actually super excited to see it when its finished) She literally just called me again saying “Some people have expressed concern over the candy buffet table and the jars breaking while little kids are getting candy.” aka: my aunt and her daughter….
OKKKKKKKKKK…………. I love my mom to death she is my best friend but COME ON SERIOUSLY? Has a candy buffet jar broke at any other bee’s weddings?????
I told my mom Ive never heard of this happening and please just relax … She says I think its a great idea but we need to have someone sitting at the table handing out candy all night, like my young cousin.. Ok thats ridiculous, why would my younger cousin want to sit there ALL NIGHT? Its a wedding, she wants to have fun, shes a senior in high school!!!!!!!! Also… I would really hope that parents aren’t going to let there kids just run around all night and get candy out of glass jars on their own?
haha okay Im really not a brat… But this is stressing me out to hear about this numerous times a day when I have like 1 million other things to think about… It also makes me mad but people say ‘well I have this idea’ or ‘some people have expressed conern’ …
Just needed to VENT!! If my mom is right and jars have broken at other weddings, then tell me so I can plan accordingly!!!!!!!!!! I’ve googled it from other weddings and I haven’t heard of anything sooo let me know please!
Just please state your opinions nicely 🙂

If parents look after thier children like they should, I don’t see how anything would get broken.
Accidents happen, but people need to be responsible for thier kids. It’s not your job to child-proof your wedding.

I agree that accidents happen and its not like we are having 100 kids there and it will be like a circus! It’s a wedding and I just think this shouldn’t be a big issue, but it is! haha ..

I actually had that concern since we were having a lot of young children. Our wedding coordinator looked at me like I was crazy. She said the jars will be far enough that the little ones (under 5) can’t really reach to knock them over, and anyway kids that young shouldn’t be helping themselves to candy without an adult anyway. In the end nothing broke, and no children were hurt 🙂

I wouldn’t worry about it. Someone could drop a wineglass or plate and break that too. This is one of those things that you can’t control and will suck away your energy if you worry about it!

This seems like an odd concern. That would never cross my mind. Are they worried about the wine glasses on the table too??
It will be just fine. I’m sure The parents will watch their children. I have been to a few weddings or parties with the glass candy Jars and none of them broke.

We had 35 candy dishes and they all made it home unharmed. You’ll be fine 🙂

Actually one did get broken at our wedding!!
There were no kids there, though. My aunt was packing them up at the end of the night and it just slipped out of her hands. She felt really bad and offered to pay my mom for it for me. Mom told her not to worry, it was basically disposable (right answer – I had paid $10 for that one at Home Goods – no big deal). That was the only one that was totally empty, though – so no mess.
Also, yogurt covered pretzels were really popular. 🙂

Your Mom needs to relax. 🙂
I’d be more concerned about a guest dropping a glass on the dance floor, than a child knocking over a glass jar. It’s probably a good idea to keep the jars back on the table, out of the reach of little hands anyway, just so they don’t go on candy overload.
If your aunt is you concerned about it, let HER police the candy table. Seriously- these two need to stop stressing out the bride!

My friend got married 2 weeks ago and had a HUGE candy buffet. Nothing broke, everything went smoothly 🙂
