Modern couples looking to switch things up should look to surprise their guests with food stations. Traditionally deemed as laid back and casual, themed stations offer items like “tapas stations”, “mac and cheese bars, gourmet sliders and fries stations, oriental noodle bars, or the trendy taco bar (featuring lobster tacos and ceviche stations, for example!),” says Cindy Mamane from Deja Blu Catering and events, “you can ‘dress them up’ with a wide range of props, floral pieces, and the food being set up on different platform heights.”
“Stations with a featured item are very ‘in’, in a retro way,” she explains, “clients are choosing their favorite comfort foods and incorporating them into their wedding menus. Dessert stations are especially popular with couples who want to serve a spread of fancy mini pastries, and candy, plus cake at their weddings.”
The stations are typically set up in one area and are open for a few hours during the reception, allowing guests to flow back and forth, taking whatever appeals to them. This adds flexibility to the event, with an opportunity to drink, eat, dance and chat with friends and family on your own time. Guests will also love the variety of the food stations and that they are no longer confined to a traditional menu of beef, chicken, or a vegetarian plate.
