I was delighted to receive an email from Stephanie, a mother-of-the-bride who shared the candy buffet photo from her daughter's recent wedding. Stephanie was inspired by our popular "Ultimate Fall Candy Buffet". She put a lot of work into her beautiful display and gave me permission to share it here on The World According to Weddlady:
Stephanie mentioned that she purchased most of the containers at flea markets and yard sales. She purchased the candy sticks for 10-cents each at Cracker Barrel and picked up most of the rest of the candy at Wal-Mart. She purchased the clear candy bags at Michael's. She estimates that this candy buffet, which served 200 guests cost her approximately $250 - that is an incredible price for a buffet for that number of guests. She put a ton of hard work in herself to achieve that budget and I think it's a beautiful display.
I've asked Stephanie to share some more of her money-saving tips. Please feel free to submit your own real candy buffet photos (and other real photos that you think might be interesting as well!). We have a contact page that explains how to reach me.
Thank you Stephanie and congratulations to your daughter and new son-in-law. And Happy Planning!
