Raleigh Candy Buffets
There is always some kind of trend that come along in the wedding field. And one of the latest trends that has swept the wedding world by storm is the self-serve candy buffet. This can be such a cool feature to add to your wedding. It can add a lot of fun and nostalgia as well as some decoration and color. It creates an amazing focal point for your guests and a great keepsake of amazing goodies that your guests can take home with them. Now, you may be tempted to think that you can setup your own candy buffet. But this would be a huge mistake because there is a lot more involved than you realize. So, we urge you to leave this to the professionals. Anyway, the last thing that you need is to worry yourself over more details. You want to make sure that if you are going to do this, that you end up with a candy buffet that is worthy of your wedding. And with that in mind, your first step is to start searching the Raleigh area for vendors that can build candy buffets. Once you have a few candidates in mind, make sure that you read this guide to help you with your final decision.
So, you are probably wondering where you can possibly find some candidates to consider in the first place. We really favor the word of mouth approach. So, one of the first things you should do is to ask your family, friends and coworkers if they have ever hired a candy buffet provider or if they have ever experienced one at any kind of event. This is a great source of information as well as recommendation. Your wedding vendors that you have already hired are another potential source of quality providers. And of course we cannot ignore the world wide web. Do a Google search for “candy buffets in the Raleigh area.” The results list should give you a number of potential contacts. We suggest that you click on each result and try and figure out which ones look like they are of any kind of quality. Your goal is to come up with at least 3 to 5 candidates that you will want to investigate further as your candy buffet provider.
Setup a meeting with each candidate on your list and talk to each one about their background and find out information that will help you in making a final decision on which vendor will provide you with exactly what you need and want. With each candidate, you should ask how much candy is the proper amount to purchase based on the number of guests that you will be having. You want to make sure that you have enough so that each of your guests can take home an ample amount. Ask how much you can be involved in the planning stages because it would be a very cool thing if you chose a lot of the candy and made it nostalgic for your guests.
Find out if they will supply a candy attendant at your wedding. This is a great idea because not only will they look after the buffet and help your guests with their selections but they will also keep everything looking clean and picked up while they restock the candy. Ask to see some candy buffets they have created for past clients. Ask them for references that you will be able to talk to about their service. When you have finished with all of your interviews, it will be time to make a decision on your hire and since you have done all of this footwork, you should feel confident about your final decision.
