The candy buffet is a visual treat for guests as well as offering a tasty treat. The candy buffet is not only a nice way to give guests a dessert alternative to cake, but it also can double as a favour for guests. Planning a great candy bar isn’t difficult but you do need to start early so you don’t run out of time. Get some ideas from other weddings you’ve attended or by looking online. Here are some tips for making a memorable wedding candy buffet. When planning the buffet it’s a good idea to set it up ahead of time at home (without candy) so you can see how it will look and function. Inquire whether the venue will be able to monitor and refill the candy buffet during the event.

Make it FUN – Guests will really enjoy a fun display. Set up the candy bar on a table. Use different heights and interesting containers to make it unique. Make sure you have enough candy to refill the bar as often as necessary – plan on using more so you’ll have plenty to keep it looking good throughout the evening.

Make it Interactive – Allow your guests to make their own candy creations. This is a great way to get guests to mingle with each other and is a fun and interesting addition to your reception. Provide bags or special containers that can be printed with your names and wedding date. Guests can then fill up their own treat containers with the candy of their choice.

Make it Colourful - A colourful candy bar area draws the attention of guests as a beautiful centrepiece. A well-designed buffet looks good and adds more interest to the look of your reception. Spend time in the planning process to create the look you desire. Some brides like to choose special candies that have colours that match their wedding colours; however, this is entirely up to you.

Make it Retro – A fun idea for a wedding candy buffet is to use retro candy. Look for candy that has been a favourite of the bride and groom when they were young. A cute idea is to get some old photos of the bride and groom when they were young children, eating candy if possible. Display the photos on the candy table along with fun retro candies from the past.
