There is nothing like a candy buffet table at your wedding reception, what a great feature. Candy buffets are a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into your reception. Candy buffets are a tasty way to say thank you to your guests for attending. We realize that there is a very good chance that you have never had to look for a vendor like this before. So, with that in mind, we want to help you as much as we possibly can. We believe if you heed the words we have given you below, you will end up with the candy buffet that you so richly deserve.
Gathering quality vendors to check out is your first objective. There are a few ways in which you can do this. You can search the world wide web and check out some of the findings that come back to you. Or you can talk to the people that you see everyday to get personal accounts of folks who have worked with a professional candy buffet builder. Or you can talk to your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with and ask them if there is anyone they could possibly recommend. Once you have a list of at least three potential candidates, you will be ready to enter the next phase of your investigation.
Before you call the vendors on your list there are some things you need to decide. Figure one what your color scheme is going to be. You will want to show any candidates you interview this scheme in order to tie your buffet table into your reception. You and your spouse should decide upon what types of candies you would want to feature in your table. You should consider your guests when deciding upon the types of candy you wish to use. If you have diabetic guests you should have a sugar-free section. If you have any vegan guests you should have a section for them as well, and any other guests with different dietary needs. You should also consider incorporating some small thank you cards inside of the bags or containers your guests will use to place their candy in. Including thank you notes can help you save money by not having to mail out personal thank you cards to your guests.
Now you can begin calling your candy buffet makers. Ask to schedule meetings. Make sure that each interviewee brings their portfolio. This will allow you to determine if the maker matches the level of skill you require. You can also get some great ideas for your own candy buffet. Ask each maker to create an example table for you.
Once all of the makers have created an example table for you, it will be time to make your final decision. Having a candy buffet at your wedding is an excellent idea. A candy buffet is a tasty way to say thank you to your guests for attending. And to make sure everything goes well, you will want to follow the steps we have laid out here.
