Candy Buffet Ideas & Suggestions?
I found this pic, I am thinking of having a small candy buffet. I am just debating pricewise. My guest count is 80. I was thinking of using m&ms, hersey kisses, jelly beans, white cover pretzels,salt water taffy, and candy sticks. Does anyone know about how much candy to use and pricewise how much it costs? If any of you have done one, or seen one please send me some pics.

My color is "pool" and white (same as pic w/out the black) I love the above pic. I want to keep it simple like that as well. I am loving the ideas, please keep them coming.

I'm just starting to look for my candy buffet stuff for my wedding of 100 people. It looks like its going to be more costly than I once thought, the jars are expensive, even at someplace like the Christmas tree shop, i haven't looked at Michael's yet, not sure if they would even have them.. i also looked on candy.com -most of there prices look reasonable. I'm not doing my in specifically my colors because theres not many "wine" (burgundy) colored candys out there.
From what I found jars range from $8-17 each depending on size, average it out to $13 say you want to do 9 like in the picture that is $117, plus ribbon, signs if you choose to do them, bags and scoops (i found on ebay 5 scoops, 2 tongs, 100 clear bags $20), ect. to decorate your up to about $150
Then the candy.. I believe to purchase the m&m's in all one color is expensive, but i may be wrong, that might be to personalize them. Hershey kisses are a great idea, buy them on your own ...continued

CVS has the Hershey kisses on sale for 2/$4 i believe this week and if you spend $30 you get a $10 gas card. BONUS =) ..candy sticks are pretty cheap and easy to get in one color.. taffy and jelly beans may be more challenging but candy.com seemed to do a lot by color. good luck!! =)

I am actually going on a jar hunt at goodwill today I will only have to spend between $2 & $4 per jar. The ribbon I can get @ dollar tree. I am thinking that the M&Ms (personalized maybe) will be my biggest expense. Also I want to add a wedding wishes tree in the back of the table to have my guests write well wishes on tags and hang them on. On the hersey kisses jar (which will be the biggest jar, in the center) a label that says "write a wish to the mr. & mrs as you scoop up some hersey kisses".

I love Candy Buffets, I have a question though, do these replace favors?

For my ideas, do you have a supermarket near you that has bulk candy? I was thinking of doing a candy buffet and this would the route I would take.

I'm sure that some brides choose to do a candy buffet as well as a more traditional favor, but I'd rather save the time and more importantly, money. ;)

I am doing my own buffett. I bought the candy at candywarehouse.com and I was very pleased with the products. I was actually able to go pick it up myself at the warehouse to save on shipping. For the jars I found some at discount stores like Marshalls and got the rest in the LA flower district. I found some really cute silver candy scoops at AM Coffee online. Everything looks really cute. Good luck and if you need anything PM me

Wedding twin Lisa, I plan to have a candy bar as well. I'm using bulk candy from places like Party City and grocery stores. Since the wedding will be just before Easter, jelly beans and such will be at just about every store. I'm using Oriental Trading to purchase the containers to hold them in.

Oooh, that second pic is very pretty!

The buffet is as much a decoration as it is a favor, so it's important that it stays full. That means you should buy a lot more candy than you'll need. I would look on wedding classifieds (on Weddingbee and locally) for jars or see if you can rent them.

we had a candy buffet for our wedding. We had 10 Jars with different candies. I ordered most through CandyWarehouse.com and finished it off with hersheys & starburst I bought at BJs. We had 130 people and all together it cost about $400 with candy, jars & the bags for people.
