- Wedding: August 2009
For my wedding I really wanted a candy buffet! At the time, my then fiance thought it was a bad idea and that adults wouldn’t want a bunch of candy. I convinced him by adding cookies to the buffet as well as adding a little favor to each place setting.
We ended up having:
Rock Candy, Whoppers, Gummy Rings, Lindt Truffles, M&M’s, Pop Rocks, Candy Sticks, and 3 types of cookies.
We had white bags with personalized stickers on them as well as some clear bags.
The day of my wedding I was excited to see how it looked!
We were announced into our reception and had our first dance, then we went to see how the candy buffet came out. I was shocked that within 15 minutes of being in the room it was COMPLETELY empty! We never saw it and the photographer didn’t even get a picture of it!
I was actually surprised at how greedy adults were over candy & cookies. I was told by another guest that they watched one person take every single pack of pop rocks and shove them in his wifes purse! The day of the wedding (and after the wedding) people kept telling us how great the candy buffet was and that they made 5 or 6 bags to bring home!!! We had 136 guests. I planned on a bag for everyone but had some extras just incase. I never thought that people would be so rude and would fill 5 or 6 bags to take home! Some asked why we didn’t have more to refill the jars!
So…the guests that didn’t notice the candy buffet right away didn’t get anything from it. My advice is to have extra candy and someone to keep it stocked.
