Did you know food is the second most popular aspect of a wedding that leads couples to increase their budget for the ceremony?
Most people want to wow their guests with the catering they choose, and although you can do that with a traditional dinner service, we believe there’s always space for a little creativity when it comes to wedding food stations.
Candy for those with a sweet tooth, cheese for those who like a salty snack, pizza for… well, everyone: the options are endless.
Keep reading and discover eight delicious ideas!
1. Pizza Station
When you think about wedding catering, pizza is probably not the first thing that comes to mind.
But let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a big slice of pizza full of delicious toppings and stretchy cheese? Make sure to have a few different ones, including vegetarian and vegan!
2. Candy Station
This one is a particularly good idea if a lot of your guests have children.
Put different candies in different jars, including marshmallows, rock candy, gummies, and sours, and you’ll end up with the sweetest food station anyone has ever seen!
3. Cocktail Station
The last idea was for the kids, and this one is for the parents.
To make it even more fun, provide your guests with different liquors, mixers, and garnishes, and let them create their own cocktails!
4. Cheese Station
If you want to keep things elegant but still unique, a cheese station is the way to go.
From brie to Camembert, Neufchatel, and even cream cheese: your guests will absolutely love to snack on all sorts of cheese types throughout the ceremony. Finish it off with some meets, olives, and bread, and voilá!
5. Donut Station
If you want to have the most Instagrammable food station ever, you’ll love this idea.
Donuts by themselves are already colorful and beautiful, but the best thing about them is that you can have them on a wall, instead of on a table. Delicious!
6. Plant-Based Station
Whether you want your wedding to be completely cruelty-free or you have a few vegan friends who are going to attend it, a plant-based station is always a good idea.
Our best tip is that you include foods that are unique, that might not even look vegan, and that even a meat-eater would be curious to try!
7. Popcorn Station
There are certain snacks that everybody loves and popcorn is definitely one of them.
From the classic butter to something a bit wilder, like jalapeño, there are countless different flavors you can create for popcorn. The sky is the limit!
8. Ice-Cream Station
Are you having your wedding during the Summer? Then an ice-cream station is simply a must-have.
Make sure to have different flavors and, of course, don’t forget to offer a nice selection of toppings. From the kids to the adults, everybody will have a smile on their face when they see this food station!
Getting Creative With Your Wedding Food Stations
Wedding food stations can be as traditional or as out-of-the-box as you want. As long as the food tastes delicious and looks beautiful (because, you know, Instagram), your guests will be more than satisfied.
