Wedding food station ideas
Weddings can often have long spaces between the ceremony and the meal – with so much going on, it’s inevitable. So, what better way to celebrate your nuptials and keep guests happy than with a variety of edible treats? Luxury, fun or simply delicious nibbles will add a sense of ‘wow’ to your big day, so here are some wedding reception food station ideas to consider.
1. Individual popcorn packets
Individual popcorn packets are great fun and allow guests to nibble away at their leisure. The little cones could be personalised andhave the names of the bride and groom printed on them or maybe the wedding date as an extra element.
2. Donut station
Imagine walking into a reception and seeing a delicious-looking table of mouth-watering donuts. These can be iced to match your wedding theme and displayed on beautiful trays. How about even going the extra mile and finding a baker who will make heart-shaped donuts?
3. Sushi station
Sushi stations are very popular as a wedding catering idea. Visually impressive with various flavour combinations these fish and rice delights are a lighter option for your health-conscious guests – plus they’re bang on trend for 2018.
4. Pizza bar
If you’re throwing a more rustic style of wedding a pizza bar might be just up your street. With an array of toppings your wedding catering problems will be solved all in one station, even your vegetarian guests will be happy.
5. Taco bar station
Everybody loves tacos so this is sure to go down well when everyone’s feeling a bit peckish after a tipple or two! You could even fill up little glasses with the salsa sauce and guacamole and have mini tacos on the side. Add a little sprinkling of cheese and there you have it!
6. Mini luxury desserts
What’s better than one dessert? Lots of mini luxury desserts! Wedding food ideas include lemon meringue tarts, cupcakes, brownies, macaroons – and these arejust a few of many options which would go down a treat at your wedding.
7. Pie station
Many people prefer to have an informal reception in a pub or bar and if this is your idea of bliss how about a pie station? There are so many different options for fillings you can make them as unusual or traditional as you want – after all, everyone enjoys a bit of comforting pastry.
8. Ice cream van
Ice cream vans are ideal for a family-friendly summer wedding. Think florals; think lace; think delicious baby pink sundaes with multi-coloured sprinkles. While an ice cream van will do the trick you may prefer a vintage ice cream cart or bicycle seller.
9. Candy floss machine
Candy floss machines can be hired at a very small cost and what a wonderful way to sweeten a wedding reception. When was the last time you actually enjoyed the decadent indulgence of pure sugar on a stick? Kids and adults alike will love this idea.
10. Mini burgers
When it comes to food station ideas, mini burgers, usually referred to as ‘sliders’are ideal as they’re not too big and cumbersome and are easy to just ‘slide’ down. Whack on some cheese, layer on the onions, pop in some lettuce and ketchup and you’re onto a winner.
