I love candy bars at wedding receptions.  I'm helping my future sister in law plan her wedding and she's having a candy bar.  Thank you for all the helpful tips!  I looked online and found a company, Box and Wrap that supplies cute candy bags, candy boxes, and Favor boxes.  They are very nice and reasonably priced.  She's going to order some and let the guests fill their own container from the candy bar.  Wedding Favors Done!!  Much better than giving something that will be thrown away or tossed in a junk drawer!

I think we are going to have a candy bar at our wedding. Noone has ever done it at any of the weddings we have been to.  My sister wanted to give us the M&M's personalized, but she said that they were too expensive.  So I think we are going to ask her for a the candy bar instead.

I love your colors!  I am doing a candy buffet as well! I think whoever came up with this idea was ingenious!

I am totally doing this at my wedding.  My fiance is Turkish, so I am incorporating Turkish Delight in our candy table.  Lots of flavors!  Fun!!

My local Party City has a decent variety of candy at a reasonable price. I found out after my wedding but thought it was worth to spread the word.

I got my containers from Walmart. Some were actually cookie jars $5-7 bucks and some were hugh candle holders i guess?? The rest i got from Ross, TJMaxx, Bealls Outlet, The Dollar Stores. Even Goodwill. Candy from various stores in my area and www.nuts.com the bags i got from Michaels and stamped them myself. But the little chinese takeout boxes are a neat idea!

We got our candy from www.temptationcandy.com and our glass containers from Michaels. But buy the Michaels containers one at a time because they always have 40% off on their receipts for your next visit.

Clever idea for those people that need a little sugar rush to keep them going.

We are doing a candy buffet but for us the color coordinating is too expensive so we are doing a variety of candy and colors. We bought all our candy containers at the Dollar Tree. This is going to be our favor for guests as they leave
