Nowadays, there is a huge trend for different types of buffet tables being set up at a wedding—from dessert to fruits; there seems to be a buffet suited for just any guest. If you are thinking of including a candy buffet in your wedding menu, it is best that you know how to plan one. Here are some things you need to remember when it comes to including a candy buffet at your wedding:
Before you start buying materials for the candy buffet, make sure that you have already set a strict budget and abide by it. Since it is so easy to overspend on candy, you might go over your budget and not get to realize it early on. As such, make sure that you always look at your budget and figure out if it is something you can still work with. Remember, candy can be very expensive—especially if you buy the really good ones.
When you set up your candy buffet, you need to make sure that it looks appealing to your guests no matter what age they are in. The best way you can achieve this is go with a color scheme similar to your wedding theme, if possible. You can even follow the theme and purchase candy that comes in those colors only so you stay in tune with the theme.
And lastly, for the fun part, choose your candy carefully. When you’re putting a candy buffet together, it really pays to have a diverse number of options, colors, and tastes so you can draw in each guest to get some candy from the buffet. Make sure to include at least one of each category so that there will be plenty of variety in your buffet:
- Hard Candy
- Gummy Candy
You may also include cake pops as an alternative to cupcakes and cake slices. By having a candy buffet, you can already substitute serving dessert at your wedding reception.
