Doing a candy table is such a great thought. It will help lessen cluster on the guest table, due to usually there are small candy dishes for nuts etc.  The table will also assist with guest mingling!  I can't wait to utilize this at my wedding.

I will buy my candy at Sam's. It's better buying them in large quantities than going to the supermarket or a candy store. Also you can buy them at Walmart like those colored M&M's.

This may sound stupid but, is it a 1/2 cup of all the candy TOTAL per person or 1/2 cup per the different types of candy selections on the table per person???

We are doing this at our wedding. We're having some of our favorites, like Kit Kats and Twix, and also having family members make homemade candies.
