Candy Buffet vs Homemade Cookie Buffet

I have tall clear apothecary jars, now I need to  decide how to fill them! Candy buffet was always the plan, but I love the idea of a cookie buffet! I don't know difference in cost. Has anyone done a candy buffet and have a price breakdown? I have aunts who love to bake, so I know I would have no problem getting the cookies made. They keep asking how they can help : )  Or, would you like to see a little of each?

    My initial thought was candy, but I like the some jars cookies and some jars candy idea!  Can't go wrong with having some variety thrown in there.

    If the cookies won't be much of a hassle/budget breaking, I'd go with both. :)

    I voted cookies, as long as it wasn't a huge hassle.  That sounds like so much fun!

    I think cookies as well!! They seem to be more cost efficient than a candy buffet. I don't know if you saw my post earlier today. I was pricing out a candy buffet and pretty much had my heart set on it. I had picked out 6 different candies and was already up to $350. I wanted to have a couple more varieties until I saw the cost and then to add some kind of container to put them in, closures and labels it just didn't seem worth it to me. If you have the budget to do the candy buffet, I'd say go for it, but I think the cookies are a good idea and a nice way for your family to help out if they're willing.

    I really like the idea so long as it's not that big of a hassle.  I don't think I would be able to do it logistically because I won't be around my house the few days before the wedding so I would have no where to bake.  But so long as you have the time right before, I think it's really cute.

    We are actually doing both a candy buffet and a homemade dessert buffet so I obviously like the idea of both.  It gives people an option and I love dessert and candy!!

    I really love the cookie idea!  If its logistically possible, it'll be a nice personal touch.

    And now I really want a chocolate chip cookie.

    Thanks for the opinions guys. It really sucks because we were originally going to do spring of this year, so I bought enough candy for the buffet on the day after halloween. Chocolate shelf life is 1 yr, so no way it will make it till May 2012. Maybe I'll put it up on the wednesday sale page, see if someone can use it.

    I've had both at different weddings, but I LOVE the cookie buffet. The best part was a receipe book that came along with the cookies and I've made a few at home since that wedding.
