Why have a Candy Buffet?

Wedding candy buffets of some sort have been slotted in as a necessity at most receptions. Guests have come to expect something sweet in addition to wedding cake! Here are some of the reasons people have a candy buffet, right from the brides we have worked with:


A candy buffet is fun and customizable.

You can select specific candies that you enjoy, that are fun, and that can be themed to your wedding colors and theme. From Chicago and love 'da Bears - go with gummi bears. Marrying a man named Henry - go with the O'Henry bars.


A candy buffet can be economical!

It can also be a more economical approach to desserts when most halls/caterers charge a flat amount per person for a dessert assortment. Of course that may not factor in your 'time' but a little work could cut your dessert bill in half.


A candy buffet can be a beautiful color accent to your reception.

Of course it will depend on where you have your candy buffet displayed, and how it is lit. Bright colors, cool display jars, and lighting under the cloth on your buffet will have people talking and taking pictures too!


Set it up early and create anticipation!

Watching your guests walk in and get excited about helping themsleves to some sweets later will add to the joy you feel on your wedding day.


At a candy buffet your guests serve themselves!

Your guests choose what they want and how much they want. One bride shared with us that she put out 10oz bags for her guests, and most guests filled them! Yikes that’s a lot of sweets!


A candy buffet will get your guests on their feet!

We all love it when the wedding crowd mingles and dances. Creating another destination in addition to the bar, restroom and dnace floor will increase the mingle odds by 33%!


A candy buffet syas "Thank You" to your guests in a sweet way!

Candy says thank you before the thank you notes get sent.
