There are a number of entertainment related vendors that you could hire for your wedding reception. The wedding industry has moved far past the live band and DJ stage. You now have some very cool options. But we believe that one of the absolute best options you could get for your reception is a candy buffet. A beautifully designed and built candy buffet provides a number of things for your reception. First and foremost, it is just a beautiful feature to have sitting at your reception venue. When done right, they can be absolutely stunning. They also give your guests something nostalgic to do and especially if you include a lot of candies from their childhood. Most people come up with some kind of party favor for their guests. Well, what could be better than something super delicious that you will not only enjoy at the reception but also have the opportunity to take home. And we forgot to mention, the colors of the candy buffet can also be coordinated with your wedding color scheme. There is absolutely no downside to providing a candy buffet. There is something you must know however. Designing and creating a high quality candy buffet is not as easy as just buying a few bags of candy and throwing them out on a table. That means that you need to hire a true professional that knows what they are doing when it comes to creating a quality candy buffet. The Richmond area has a number of quality candidates for you to check out. Take your time, read over this guide and let it lead you to a candy buffet provider that will knock your socks off.
The key to the beginning phase of your search is to come up with a list of quality providers. There are a few different sources you can tap into to make this happen. Start by chatting with your friends, family and coworkers. Maybe one of them has worked with a candy buffet provider. Or quite possibly, someone you know may have been at an event where they experience an exceptional candy buffet. If that is the case, then here is your chance to start a list of potential providers for your wedding day. Another great source to check out is the world wide web. Do a Google search for “candy buffet providers in the Richmond area.” Your best bet here is to check out the individual websites that you get back. When you feel really good about what one of the websites says about the provider and you like what you see on their portfolio page, jot down their name and contact information. Also, start talking to your wedding vendors that you have already hired. If they are well connected and up on the latest trends, they should have a candidate or two for you to check out. Once you have at least 3 to 5 candidates to check out, it will be time to setup some interviews.
At each interview, you need to keep in mind that this is an amazingly fast growing trend and you don't want someone who just started their business within the last year. Talk about the number of guests you will be having and find out what the turnaround time would be. They should be able to give you an idea about how much candy will be enough to provide your guests with an ample amount to take home. Have a discussion about your budget. What do they think can be done for that amount? Can you still have a quality candy buffet built? Ask for their suggestions. How much input will you have in the design process? Take a look at decorative bags or boxes that your guests will use to stock up on candy. Take a close look at each vendor's portfolio of candy buffets that they have created for past clients. You need to ask for references and call each one to talk about their experience. Will an attendant be there at all times to help maintain the area and assist your guests? Believe us when we tell you that once you choose a quality provider, everyone at your wedding is going to have a sweet time.
