Picking Out the Candy: The options are endless! This is where it gets fun, you will want to pick out loose candy in bulk and possibly individually wrapped candies. You can also pick candy that is more for decor and filler than to be eaten. You can mix the candies so that guests don't miss out on any of the goodies you have to offer.

Setting Up the Table: If you are setting the candy table up yourself, set the table up before you purchase the candy so that you know how much candy you will need for the containers and jars. Purchase the containers you plan to use first before you buy the candy in order to do this. Use clear containers when doing a color coordinated table so that you properly display the color coordinated candy. You will want to do several trials of table set ups before deciding on one you will go with.

You will want to have the taller containers in back and the shorter containers in front. Make sure the tall containers aren't so tall that guests aren't able to reach into them. Put the bulk candy in the middle of your candy table, shorter containers or jars are appropriate in this area.
So how much candy is too much? You will want to consider eight ounces for each guest. For individually wrapped candy, limit to one per guest.
Finishing Touches for the Table: You will want the candy table to be a major focal point for your wedding or bridal shower, so you may want to draw attention with the table cloth or have a fabulous centerpiece. At this point in the set up, you can add little touches that add to the overall theme of your table. Personalize the table with names of the bride or the bride and groom for the wedding.
