Including a candy buffet at your celebration is a great way to ensure your guests remember your day for years to come. Not only does it add a bit of nostalgia & fun but it also acts as a conversation starter and a way to get people to talking and mingling.

If you are providing a candy buffet/bar that allows guests to take some candy home with them in the form of a party favor, the general rule of thumb is to account for approximately eight ounces of candy per guest. That is roughly the equivalent weight of four full-size candy bars. This means if you have 100 guests, then you will need approximately 800 ounces or 50 pounds of candy.  This estimate takes into account that some guests will take more than eight ounces, some will take less and some may not take any candy at all.
