Among popular wedding trends is the popular wedding candy buffet. This layout add a nice, fun and colorful touch to any wedding reception while taking the bride and groom back to the days of being a kid. Wedding candy buffets adds an extra touch of excitement to any wedding, regardless of the age of any guest.
Wedding Candy Buffet Containers and Tables
For the most attractive wedding candy buffet, consider just a few small but important things. To begin, get some unique candy containers and scoops. Candy containers look fancy and formal but can usually be purchased at a very inexpensive price. You can probably even find large bins to rent out for the affair. The clear or glass cases are usually the most recommended since they show off the beautifully colored candies, but fancy sized and shaped containers will also look exquisite.
A setup with a photo of the bride and groom on the table will add a zesty appeal to the décor. The table should be laid with candles, flowers and table runners. For best results, select candy that will complement the colors of the wedding and flowers on the other dinner tables.
To add style, purchase the candy containers to stand at different height levels on the table. If the containers are flat or low, place books or small stands under them to raise them to stand a little higher and at staggered levels.
Selecting the Wedding Candy Buffet
When it is time to select the types of candy for the wedding candy buffet, consider the theme and colors of the wedding. Another thing to consider is the candies that are the most popular but still fall within the range of colors. Blue and green candies would go great for a seaside theme, whereas pink and white candies would be great for a more traditional weddings. Wedding candy buffets can also be based on seasons, flavors or colors. Mints, chocolates, certain colors of M&Ms and lollipops are all candies that are great at weddings. The chocolates can even be personalized with the bride and groom’s names or initials on them.
Amounts of Wedding Candy for the Buffet
Before buying the candy for the wedding candy buffet, make sure that you have decided on a color, type of candy and a theme. It is most important to have enough candy displayed in order for the candy buffet to look good. Anywhere from 7 to 10 different types of candies, and from 15 to 20 pounds of each of the varieties should be sufficient enough to make the buffet look “full” and appealing. While this seems like a lot of candy, this is the substantial amount that will enhance the wedding reception’s look.
