If you are looking to really sweeten up your wedding, a great and quirky way to do so is to set up a candy buffet that will be available at your wedding reception! This is a wonderfully fun way to let the guests of your wedding indulge in sweets and have a whole lot of fun in the process! Putting together a candy buffet is a wonderful way to tie decadent sweets into your wedding reception, and it allows guests to customize their candy consumption experience! It's truly a win-win all the way around! It's a great, entertaining way to be inclusive of guests of all ages, and it gives them a nice, edible souvenir when leaving the wedding. However, many people don't know the first thing about putting together an effective candy buffet. It is important to stay organized and know exactly what you need to pull it off the right way!
The first thing that you need to do is plan for what candy you are going to have available at the candy buffet. This is really the most important aspect of the planning process because the way you plan out every other aspect of the candy buffet from the containers, to the colors, to the displays that you put on the table, will be entirely dependent on knowing what candy you plan on serving up at the candy buffet.
You should use candy that you like, obviously, but you also need to have a keen idea of what candy your guests will probably like consuming as well. It should also fit the theme of your wedding, especially as far as color palates go. In fact, picking candy that perfectly matches your color palate can be a really cute and effective accent to the whole affair. You also want to make sure that you are complementing the flavor and the texture of the dessert that is being served with dinner, and the dinner itself for that matter. You also need to consider what weather and temperature you will be experiencing at the wedding. If, for example, your wedding is going to be outdoors, then you will probably do well to avoid getting too much chocolate for the candy buffet, as this can melt really fast. If you must have chocolate, you must make sure that there is an easy and efficient way to keep it cold enough as to not melt. The candy buffet is a great place to have treats such as cookies, brownies, lollipops, kettle corns, and much more.
It is also extremely important to keep the dietary needs of your guests in mind, as you do not want anyone to accidentally eat anything that they are allergic to or can't eat. It is important to make sure that everything at the candy buffet is clearly and boldly labeled, including any potential allergens, or if the item is dairy or gluten free! It's probably a good idea to include any special dietary needs on the RSVPs so you can be sure of what to expect from your guests.
As mentioned before, it is important to decorate the buffet table in accordance to the theme of your wedding so you can be sure that it will really stand out. Make sure that you have as much fun with this process as you can, as this is really a light hearted aspect of the wedding planning process. You can and should use items like flowers, balloons, confetti, ribbons, and so on. Make sure that you have a cool centerpiece such as a statue, a glass piece, or even a fondue chocolate fountain!
Using candy buffets is an amazing and extremely effective way to add a fun element to your wedding reception. It is sure to be a popular attraction for all of your guests, whether they are children or adults, you will find everyone indulging in the excellent candy buffet!
