Now Trending: Food
I love having options when I attend a function. It shows that the hosts tried to accommodate as many of its guests possible. Now of course you can’t please everybody but if you can please the majority you’ve done your job.
Specialty Stations – One big trend that’s being handed down from 2016 is the specialty food station. Can you image a wedding that offered peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, mini hot dogs, a pretzel station, or an omelet station? It’s not only a clever idea but it’s also budget friendly. Food stations serve two purposes:
- It’s interactive – it gets people out of their seats and mingling with the other guests
- It’s cost effective to offer a specialty food item versus a multiple course meal
Donut wall – this is not a joke! It’s literally a wall of donuts hanging from little hooks. Grab and go!
Breakfast for dinner – huge money saver to do this! Who doesn’t love pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, eggs, omelets, home fries? OMG I can go on and on. The point is couples are trying to break the “traditional” wedding mold. They want different, fresh, and fun. There is no better way of showing this than though your food option.
Late night snack options – After the heavy food has been cleared what’s left to eat for the rest of the event? Que the snacks! Mini burgers, French fries, shakes, chips, dip, you name it! Whatever your go to late night snack is put it on display for your guests to enjoy. It’s the official food of the after party!
Hopefully you’ll incorporate some of these fun ideas but don’t stop there, display the foods that speak to you as a couple.
As always never miss an opportunity to celebrate!
