I threw this pic in because I just thought it was a unique way of using candy in a wedding. A lollipop bouquet and a rock candy boutonniere.
A great alternative to a candy/dessert buffet is a popcorn buffet. It can be just as gorgeous. Plus popcorn comes in so many flavors and colors!! I use popcorn buffets a lot!!!
What about a cookie buffet? If you have talented baking friends...all the better!!
