Wedding Candy Buffet - Creating The Buffet Of Your Dreams!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Wedding Candy Buffet: the mere sentence conjures up dreamy images of wonderful candy displays, shiny hard candies spilling from beautiful glass vases, chocolate balls sitting proudly in their old fashioned jars and lollipops as big as your head providing the perfect backdrop.  It is a picture that Willy Wonka would be proud of!

However, creating such a vison of loveliness it is not as easy as it looks.  Sometimes the most simple looking displays are deceptive: they would have had a great amount of effort put into them, to ensure that the right proportions of candy to table space is achieved. 

Just take a look at the many photos online these days and you will find that candy buffets are increasing popular with brides, as not only do they provide a beautiful piece of decor, but they double up as wedding favors too!

However, you will also see many, many photos of wedding candy buffets that must fall short of the bride's expectations, as they are sparse and severely lacking in style. 

It makes me sad to see such a poor decoration at the happiest day of a couple's life!  It is an easy mistake though and a seemingly common one too.

This seems to be because the bride and groom tend to cater a wedding candy buffet for the precise amount that their guests will eat on the day and to take home.  This isn't really practical unless it's a really large wedding, but if the plan is to have on average 150 - 200 guests, then I would suggest choosing 5-20 different candy types and buying about 25-20 pounds each. 

This will give the candy buffet real presence and you can make tiers with the containers to create an illusion of large quantities.  This is easily done with boxes placed underneath flowing fabric such as satin, in different heights to create interest.

Now how about the color?  Well they is an absolute rainbow of colors to choose from!  Pink (my favorite) white, green, blue, yellow, purple, orange, gold, silver, brown and black (not sure about that one for a wedding but each to their own :)  You can really have anything you desire for your candy buffet, including all the wrapped and unwrapped candy you can imagine!

Now if you chose a white wedding candy buffet - it will go with everything and not least your dress!  The white candy available from online stores is great as you can get huge amounts of it delivered straight to your door!  Also the great thing is that if you buy in bulk it brings the cost right down.  

Here's wishing you a wonderful wedding day!
