I was thinking about setting up a chocolate fountain for our wedding reception with white chocolate. We would put out fruit and skewers and things to dip. Has anyone used a chocolate fountain at their reception? Are they messy? Are they worth the trouble?
Also, besides fruit, what other foods would you get for dipping?

@ecstaticfuturebride: Is your reception outdoors? If so, then DEFINATELY DO NOT have a chocolate fountain. Wind + liquid chocolate = a bad messy time.
Personally chocolate fountains gross me out…thinking about all these people sticking their food/fingers/ whatever into a liquid chocolate pot grosses me out.

I’ve had one at a party (not a wedding) and it was VERY messy, but so good. Hopefully you aren’t a germaphobe, cause there will be redippers. 😛 And it was PITA to clean up. After the party we sold ours because I never wanted to deal with it again!
We had strawberries, bananas, pineapples, angel food cake pieces, rice crispy treats, brownie bites and little cheesecake bites.
Yum. Now I want some chocolate.

The reception is indoors (I do NOT want to deal with wind or rain or any kind of bad weather. My hair gets really frizzy in humidity lol). There will be children at our wedding and they will probably be using the fountain. I was thinking about having someone stand beside it the whole time to “monitor” it. They could watch to make sure people don’t double dip or drop food in it to clog it up.
And I LOVE angel food cake. That’s a great idea! I’m sorry I made you hungry, iheart. Go have some chocolate:)

I’m in love with the idea of a white chocolate fountain with added food dye to make it the same color as our wedding.

If there are kids I would definately not have it. Think of sticky kid hands everywhere ::shudder::

What about marshmallows? The hotel we’re considering having our reception at makes home made marshmallows and they’re amazing in the chocolate fountain!

So delicious, but so messy.

I used one at a wedding reception with kids and it went great! A touch messy, but seriously tasty.

If you love the idea and love chocolate, just go ahead and do it. I know white chocolate is more appropriate for a wedding, but maybe dark milk chocolate will be appreciated by all of your guests, for many people don’t like white chocolate. I’ve already been to a wedding with a chocolate fountain, the guests seemed happy and surprised with it. Sure, children made a mess out of it….in case keep them away from you and your beautiful dress. Again, do whatever you wish to do: it’s your special day!!!
