Liven Up Your Wedding Reception Buffet with Action Stations
Buffet style dining is perfect for a casual wedding in the country. Your guests can get up and mingle while they choose the foods they want to eat. Plus, no one will complain about going home hungry because they can always go back for second helpings. You can even make your wedding reception buffet more fun by adding action stations. Here are some tips to get you started.
Action Station Basics:
Your wedding reception will feel less like a cafeteria and more like a party when you have action stations so your guests can skip the long lines. The focus is on making the experience interactive, personalized, and fun. Like the name suggests, your guests get involved in the action whether it’s choosing the ingredients or taking part in the preparation and cooking. The possibilities are endless too from taco bars to sushi stations.
Holding Down Costs:
Of course, adding catering staff adds to your costs. However, you can still have action stations without straining your budget. You can add just a couple of stations to a regular buffet, especially if you’re having a cocktail reception rather than a dinner. Depending on your menu, maybe some or all of your stations can even be self-serve. Ordering food carefully helps too. You need enough to handle repeat trips without risking too many leftovers.
People love variety so it’s no wonder action stations have become so popular. You can give your guests the experience they want whether it’s educating them about craft cocktails or giving them flashy pictures to post on Instagram. Meanwhile, vegans and vegetarians can stick to their diets without having to do any extra work.
