If there’s one thing that can make or break a wedding for a guest, it’s the food. When guests travel far and wide to dedicate a day—or weekend—to your celebration of love, a crowd-pleasing menu is a surefire way to make their time enjoyable.
Creative food and drink stations are having a moment. We're not just talking dessert bars here—we're talking gourmet coffee stands, passed appetizers, build-your-own taco bars and even barbeque sauce stations. Wedding décor and attire aside, this is one of the best ways to personalize your reception and share a truly unique experience with your guests. Lean on seasonal, local flavors to get the best possible flavors.
The options are endless! For a brunch wedding, you can’t go wrong with a bacon bar or waffle bar (with choice of toppings of course). For Southern nuptials, we love an old-fashioned biscuit bar with flavored jams or a pie station. Cheese and charcuterie stations, as well as a raw bar, have a timeless and universal appeal, while popcorn bars, ice cream stations, and hot cocoa bars bring a whimsical touch. These ideas don’t need to be confined to appetizers and/or the main course—use them in lieu of the cake for a non-traditional feel. Can anyone say donut bar or cupcake station? We’re all about the sweets.
No matter which foods you want to specialize, the trick to nailing a delicious food bar is providing different flavors or varieties of what’s on display.
