3 Wedding Meal Style Ideas

If you feel like your wedding meal planning is stuck in a rut, maybe it is because you are limiting your options to a sit-down plate meal or a buffet style dinner. We’re going to share with you three other options that can really change the atmosphere of the event and make your wedding unique.

Self-Serve Food Stations

While these are growing in popularity, they are rarely the focus of a wedding meal. For example, you may see a plate of salty and sweet items to dip in a chocolate fondue. However, you can really customize an entire meal to be a “choose your own adventure” style offering. From a potato bar to a sundae bar for dessert, you can let your guests make all the choices when it comes to what they want to eat.

Family Style Meals

This type of meal makes the seating chart a key element of dinner. After all, your guests are going to be passing plates around with everyone else seated at the table. However, it is a more intimate meal, and everyone can get their food a lot faster than waiting on a long buffet line.

Cocktail Reception

Skipping the meal and just serving a variety of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails is also becoming popular. It makes the evening a little more casual, but it gives your guests more time to mingle, so you don’t have to be as concerned about seating arrangements.
