    I have acutally changed what I was going to buy a few times because some candies are $2 and others are closer to 3 or 4 a pounds. I priced stuff at Target and then went to Costcos website. Some stuff is cheaper at Target so be careful.

    I really lucked out with the big lollipops and found them at our dollars store.
    There is a website I was going to use but the price is more and I don't know about shipping

      Here is a poem I found
      Step right up
      To the candy buffet
      It’s a sweet addition
      To a wonderful day.

      This is a treat
      We are offering you
      On this beautiful day
      When we say “I do.”

      Use the scoop,
      Choose what you like
      Leave some for others
      Be polite.

      As you enjoy
      Your tasty treats
      Please remember
      Love is sweet!

      Thank you for joining us today!
      Love,
      you and him

        Your poem is WAY better than what I have. We are just putting a sign up that says "love is sweet". We always were a couple of few words!

            In Pittsburgh, we have a tradition of the cookie table at weddings. All burgh weddings have this. Either homemade or bakery ordered, there is an entire table filled with various types of cookies to snack from at any time during the reception. I was surprised to learn (when I lived out of state) that this isn't done everywhere. It's one of the best parts about going to a wedding...besides the polka, that is! Wonder if the candy buffet got its start from the cookie table?

              hmmm... that is cool, I always thought that it started with the candy buffet, and then it moved out to the cookie buffet and the popcorn buffet

                Yeah I have heard of cookie buffets and we really did toss around the idea of doing that instead but stuck with the candy.

                  I have been considering this idea too but think I will end up the the cookie buffet (FI and I shared a HUGE choco-chip cookie after our 2nd date :-)

                  I have found this site to have a good stock of candies, peanuts, etc. in bulk - Economy Candy Homepage: Return

                    I also found these cute apothecary jars here...
                    they also have vases that are pretty cheap.

                      I am in the process of working on mine and thought I would share a few pre-wedding photos of it. Ignore the microwave and cat, they are not part of my grand vision.

                      These are slowly sinking into the marshmallows so I will fix them up that day and just let gravity piss me off.

                      Right now I am working on getting these tags done.

                      The table I am using is 5 feet so things won't be as cramped as they are pictured.
