Q. I've never heard of a Candy Buffet before! How does it work?
A. You can use our Candy Buffet in any way you wish! There are two methods in particular that are most popular, and these are firstly as a fun alternative to traditional wedding favours, and secondly as an 'extra' sweet treat during your evening reception, but you could use it in so many different ways - the choice is entirely yours! We work closely with you to develop the Candy Buffet of your dreams and to ensure you get everything want on your special day.
Q. Do we select our own sweets?
A. Yes, absolutely! The key to our Candy Buffet service is that we bespoke your Candy Buffet to your day, and the choice of sweets is yours. Many of our brides and grooms like us to colour match the sweet selection to the wedding colour scheme, and our sweet list is colour-coded, which ensures the sweets complement the theme of your day perfectly if this is your preferred option.
Q. How many sweets will we need?
A. That depends on the number of guests you will be having at your wedding. In terms of variety, we recommend one type of sweet for every 12 guests, so, as an example, a selection of 8 sweets would be best suited to an event with 100 guests. You don't want your sweet selection to be spread too thinly in the glassware, nor do you want to have too limited a selection, and in our experience this guideline calculation gives the perfect result.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. We have a standard pricing system of £3 per head, although we do run various deals and promotions throughout the year so keep an eye out for these! We can also offer additional items such as our giant lollipops, or chocolate apples for example, at extra cost. We do also have a delivery, setup and collection charge payable but this is dependant on your choice of venue. We can confirm all the costs to you in writing once you let us know your choice of venue and number of guests.
Q. What does the hire price include?
A. The hire price includes; your sweet selection (colour matched to your wedding colour scheme if required or themed accordingly to your preferences), hire of our glassware and scoops, bespoke labelled candy bags, a table message from the bride and groom, bespoke sweetie labels and colour-matched ribbons, and table decor for the buffet display.
Q. Do we have to set anything up ourselves?
A. No - you are free to relax and prepare for your big day! We will arrive on the morning of your wedding and set everything up for you. We will then leave it all in place for you and your guests to enjoy, and come back to collect the empty glassware the next day.
Q. How do we book?
A. Contact us for a bespoke quote and a booking form - once we receive your booking form and deposit, your booking is secured!
Q. What if something breaks during our event?
A. We take a fully-refundable deposit for damages when the full balance for the booking is collected, usually 3 weeks' prior to your wedding. This deposit is returned entirely to you upon collection of all items, and once we have confirmed no items are missing or damaged.
Q. I've seen other Candy Buffets on offer that are cheaper - what makes yours different?
A. The key to our Candy Buffet is quite simply, luxury. We have invested very heavily in our materials to ensure we create a stunning and opulent display that adds an extra touch of luxury to your day; just as your wedding deserves! In addition, we work with you before your wedding to create a display entirely tailored to your day with bespoke touches, such as personalised labels, candy bags and table messaging, plus colour-matched decor and styling ensuring your candy buffet is perfect for you!
Q. Where are you based and how far do you travel?
A. We are based in the sunny Westcountry, but will travel anywhere within the UK mainland to be a part of your special day!
