Looking for Something Unique to Serve on Your Wedding Day?

Most couples are moving away from a sit-down three or four-course meal where the food is brought to guests by wait-staff to wedding food stations, a delicious trend that’s always customisable. Here is how food stations are the best wedding catering ideas.

1. Wedding Food Stations That You Can Do Yourself

You can easily prepare these food stations in advance, especially if you’ve got access to the venue the day before the wedding.

2. Popcorn Station

Popcorn stations are probably the easiest and cheapest stations to set up, offering a perfect little light snack that’s easy to eat on the go.

3. Sweet Bars and Candy Buffets

Sweet bars and candy buffets can range from nostalgic childhood favourites to artisan treats like marshmallows, fudge, rock candy or mini meringues.

4. Wedding Food Stations That Require Some Help

Spoilable food items like cheese or desserts with fresh cream will still need the co-operation of the venue and/or catering staff to store in their refrigerators and put out at the correct time.

5. Grazing Tables

For the couple who love a cheese and charcuterie board, the grazing table offers a selection of cold meats, cheeses, antipasti, dips, bread, crackers, salads and fruits.

6. Cake, Dessert and Treat Tables

Cake tables present another special wedding catering idea and are a great alternative to traditional desserts or as an extra sweet treat throughout the day.

7. Donut Walls and Stations

Everyone loves donuts and you can mix and match flavours, shapes and sizes, or let your guests get creative with delicious glazes or fun sprinkles.

8. Pie Station and Pie Bar

Perfect for autumn and winter weddings, pie bars are a super twist on the cake table trend and can be served as slices, mini pies or pie pops for guests to eat on the go.

9. S’mores or Milk and Cookie Bar

S’mores are a combination of malted milk biscuits, melted marshmallows, and your favourite chocolate and work well in an outdoor wedding.

10. Wedding Food Stations Best Left to the Experts

For these food stations, you can either hire a mobile supplier who will take care of everything, or do part of the job yourself and hire a chef or server to man the station during the wedding.

11. Pizza Bars

Pizza is fast becoming a popular and affordable choice at rustic celebrations and you can stick with classics like Margherita and pepperoni or design your own pizza.

12. Sushi and Asian Food Stations

Hire a chef to make fresh sushi rolls to impress your guests and with help from your venue staff, you can create some great sushi variations.

13. Ice Cream Bar

Ice cream always impresses and is a firm favourite with guests young and old.
