Gone are the days when weddings were centred around a sit down meal. Of course, for many that is still a focal point of the evening celebration, however the way in which we present the food experience to our wedding guests has evolved.
Today, it’s all about interactive food and whether you decide to have that as the main meal or just incorporate it into your pre-meal canapes, your dessert table or late night snack, it’s a really on-trend way to get your guests involved in their food.
And they sky really is the limit when it comes to ideas. You could keep it simple and have one main element, such as a chocolate fountain, or go all out with donut decorating stations, sliders, dessert tables,
Here’s some ideas to get you thinking. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.
These days many couples have trays of canapes for guests when they arrive at the reception. Weddings can be a long day, so it’s nice to be able to offer them a little something to keep them going. If you want to inject a little more fun into proceedings, then why not supplement the canapes with something like a chocolate fountain? Or instead of canapes why not have some small food stations set up, such as sushi, crepes, build your own crostini or some Italian inspired antipasti filled with meats and cheeses?
We all know the cake is still a showstopper and traditional part of the wedding and by having a dessert table it doesn’t have to diminish the importance of your cake, but let’s face it who doesn’t love sweet treats? So why not add pick ‘n’ mix station, donut, cookie or cupcake decorating stations? Plus if you have kids at the wedding they are going to just love this.
The Late Night Snack
After a couple of hours of bopping on the dancefloor, guests tummies can be rumbling, so instead of the old fashioned sandwiches and cocktail sausages, why not mix it up with some more interactive ideas? What about pizza stations where guests can choose slices, or slider stations where they can create their own mini burgers? Nachos and tacos are another super customisable treat.
Don’t forget the drinks too! Prosecco stations or cocktail making stations where guests can get creative with the help of a mixologist are a super idea. For the non alcoholic choices, you could have hot chocolate stations with a variety of toppings guests could add, as well as lemonade stations which could be adorned with fruit and umbrellas, again huge fun for the kids.
