I'm a lemming

My wedding will feature the ubiquitous candy buffet. I can't help it. They look like so much fun, and, as I've mentioned, I have a raging, debilitating addiction to sugar.

The only thing left to decide... Do I introduce some color to our black and white themed wedding?

Or do I keep it consistent and do all white candy?

Oh, and there's a ton more amazing inspiration here.

Looks amazing! And YES to color!

I would definitely add color, maybe just in the candy though. Add color to the table cloth, name plates, but leave the clear jars and white as well.

I love the idea of a candy buffet!!

Great pictures for inspiration.

The table with white candies only looks very classy, but I think that some colors wont hurt.

I say color! I recked my brain trying to find all black and white candy(thats what I had, at my wedding)...and to be honest...the flavors of black and white candy sux!

If I had to do it again, I'd do all retro candys! Like bottle caps, gum balls, razzles, etc!

Yes to color! I'm having one too. Im thinking of some fun retro candy and bright table. Amy Atlas has the best tables.

I love the candy bar .. I want one real bad too.

On your question I am torn! I think adding color makes the display look fun and you'll have more options in terms of candy. But there is something so elegant about the all white. Conclusion = I am of absolutely no help.

Ahem: as a fellow candy buffet-er, I refuse to admit to "lemming". If we can call "blatantly copying" an "homage", then surely ...?

Of course, lemmings are cute & furry, so maybe that's not so terrible, after all.

I really think that an awesomely colorful candy bar would be a great extra punch to a black and white wedding!

Colors! They really pop in photos, but also because people love cherry, green apple, etc.

A little bit of color in the form of candy could be fabulous! Yummy! If you love sugar, I saw somewhere doing an old fashioned soda table too.. All vintage looking glass bottles, all colors (Orange sodas, Squirt, Grape). It looked fun!

Nothing is truly original anyway. Yey for the candy bar!

I think a pop of one color mixed with some white and black would be great. Like black, white and red; or black, white and pink.

Definitely some color, though.
