I’m planning on just doing the very simple, very overdone DIY candy buffet/bar.

reasons: Simple. Cost effective. Popular. Didn’t want to give my guests something that they’d have to cart home, or throw in a drawer never to be seen again, or – horrors! – leave behind at the venue. No difference between that & mints in a tulle package, really. And biggest one of all : I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PATIENCE TO FIDDLE WITH TINY LITTLE PACKAGES EIGHTY FIVE TIMES. GAH! Shoot me!

Why, what are you doing?

We are doing something edible – it was truffles, but then N decided to attempt to make caramal squares (like the little ones in the plastic packages), and since those are his FAVOURITE candy ever, we decided to make those instead.

We’re having a fall themed wedding so each of our guests are getting orchard mini apple pies. We’re from Upstate, NY so we have some of the best orchards in the country. The one we are going with is actually pretty well known. From what I hear, they ship their pies all over the world! We got a few to “test” back in October and OH. MY. GOD! If our guests want to leave them behind, thats A-OK with me! I’ll be more than happy to dispose of them in whichever way my stomach see’s fit!! However, I highly doubt anyone will leave theirs. We’re apple pie people in these parts!

We’re pretty excited about these. They are each about 6 inches in diameter and will come packaged in their own individual pie box. We’ll add some ribbon and a matching label to dress them up a bit. Each guest will get one to take home. I’m still entertaining the idea of putting stickers on the inside cover instructing our guests how to reheat them, since the orchard does offer these instructions with all of the pies they sell. We’ll see, I may not want to deal with having to print a whole other set of stickers come wedding time.

@UpstateCait: I love that idea!! Apple pie is my FAVOURITE dessert. If there’s any left over at the end of the night, feel EXTREMELY free to ship some over here!! 🙂

We did a trail mix buffet as an alternative to the candy buffet.  We had some candy, nuts, dried fruits and cereal.  It went over well, we had lots of guests say something about it.  We did have some leftovers, but we estimate about 75% of our guests took it.

@ bebefly

How much did your candy buffet cost (including candy, dishes, favor bags, etc)?

Thanks

We’re doing FI’s mom’s homemade pizzelles (traditional Italian cookies..kind of look and taste like waffle cones only circular!) wrapped up and tagged..they also double as the escort “cards” 🙂

I’m thinking of doing little cellophane baggies of candy corn and/or some Hershey’s kisses sprinkled on the guest tables, if I do favors at all.

we had cookie mix in mason jars, and the tag had the recipe/instructions. it took a long time to assemble, but it was fun and people said they liked them

We did a donation.  At each place setting there was a menu and a little note saying thank you for joining us and noting the donation.

@caszos: @vanilla frosting: i am a big fan of donation favors too – both of yours are so great. we’re giving our guests a “paradise” soundtrack/cd as their wedding favor but also want to incorporate a donation as well. we’re still brainstorming!
