Candy buffet

Really, do you need to know any more than that? I was just told about this candy buffet concept for weddings and I've decided I want one.

The concept, they tell me, is that you put out glass vases and containers filled with different types of candy. Some people do candies in colors that coordinate with their flowers and such, but I don't know if I'm that great of a planner.

As people filter out, they make sure to fill up bags with candy to their liking.

I think it's a better idea than traditional favors, provided there is a variety of candy to be had. Anyone been to a wedding with a candy buffet?

I like the idea - but then I'm a candy fiend... And I haven't been to a wedding in the US for so long that I don't know about 'favors'. The bride and groom now give gifts to their guests?
Damn, am I ever out of it! So I wouldn't listen to me....
I like the colors, though...

I think it's a great idea! You won't spend TONS of time (and money) creating the traditional favors (unless you pay someone else to do it), plus less waste (people leaving favors behind) and then if there are leftovers you can put everything in a Ziploc bag and take it to work (or just give it away). A bag of candy in my office NEVER goes to waste. They're vultures! :)

Less stress for the bride, I say! :)
