As I was scrolling the internet the other day looking at everything wedding related I came across a posting about candy buffets. First off, just to be clear, I absolutely love candy buffets! I mean who doesn't love candy?
Candy buffets can be a fun and creative favor at a wedding reception. They can also eco-friendly provided the guests actually eat ALL the candy. However, herein lies the irony and problem with candy buffets. Does all the candy ever really get eaten? This posting I read bothered me a little. I even tweeted about it.
It really got me thinking about our expectations as wedding guests and brides. Why do we allow ourselves to succumb to practices that generate over consumption and unnecessary waste? If you don't need all that candy why do you want to waste money, time and resources on it?
You can still have that candy buffet but why not use your grandmothers mason jars?
