You could always have this as an appetizers and have other appetizers for vegeterians and those who don’t eat seafood. We aren’t doing a raw bar but we are adding a sushi bar to our cocktail hour in which we have 5 other appetizers.

I went to a wedding with a raw bar/seafood buffet. It was heavy hos’douevres style so they also had other selections. Being that I was planning a wedding in the same city I looked up the costs and WOWSA! The raw bar included, fresh, chilled oysters on the half shell, horseradish or bloody mary sauce, jonah and stone crab claws with warm butter jumbo shrimp cocktail with lemon wedges ceviche served in scallop shells with lime, chile, cilantro and red onion and it was $48.00 per person just for that station, they had about 6 others too so I’m sure it ended up with a hefty price tag.

I didn’t do this for my wedding (but thought about it, then realized the only people who would be slurping down oysters would be me, FH and my dad!). 🙁   

But, here’s the pricing from our caterer, to give you an idea of some ballpark figures. It is to be served as a stationary display hors d’oeuvres.

Raw Bar:Large shrimp, littleneck clams, oysters and mussels served with traditional cocktail sauce, lemon wedges, crackers and salsa cruda. $14/pp (lobster and crab added at any additional $)

Seafood bar option:Thinly sliced whole smoked salmon, saffron and wine steamed mussels with crusty bread, raw oysters, crab and cilantro crepe cones. $14/pp
