Hearty Appetizers

One popular trend is opting for hearty appetizer stations, rather than a buffet or sit-down plated meal. Various stations throughout the room such as cheese tables, charcuterie boards, and grazing tables loaded with appetizer selections are sure to satisfy your guests and create a social atmosphere that is great for mingling. This cocktail-style dinner also allows the bride and groom to easily circulate throughout the room to greet and chat with everyone.

Late Night Snacks

After an evening of imbibing and forays on the dance floor, your guests will be longing for a late-night snack. Midnight snacks such as pizza, tacos, burgers, or grilled cheese sandwiches provide much needed party fuel and give your guests the energy to keep dancing.

Fun Desserts

Couples are now opting for a more memorable dessert presentation than the typical wedding cake. Dessert bars with cookies, macarons, cake pops, tarts, pies, mini-desserts, or artisan doughnuts are a delicious alternative to the traditional wedding-cake stand and create a beautiful display. If you still want to serve a traditional wedding cake or get that picture-perfect cake cutting moment, serve it right alongside the other assorted desserts.

Family-Style

A variation of a sit-down dinner, family-style is a great way for guests to interact. In this setting, waiters bring large portions of dinner offerings to each table on serving platters for guests to help themselves to as much or as little food as they’d like. This style can satisfy different taste buds and is fun and interactive, creating an atmosphere that is just like sitting down to dinner with your family.
