Food wedding stations are predicted to be a hot trend for 2019 wedding receptions. Food stations are a “style of dinner service which consists of multiple buffets set up as stations throughout the wedding reception”. Having a food station allows for your wedding guests to sample a variety of different food choices. Your wedding may stretch for the entire day, having food stations allow for your guests to celebrate with you all day without a single rumbling tummy.
There are a few things to consider before setting up your food stations:
- how many guests will be there
- the type of space / whether that space will be able to facilitate your food stations
- how many stations you want to have
- whether or not your food stations will require additional staff to help, or will they be self sufficient stations
And now the fun stuff! Here are the different types of food stations you may want to set up for your wedding reception:
- Popcorn Station
