I was curious as to everyone’s thoughts about a pizza bar at the reception. An all you can eat gormet, italian style pizza bar in lieu of a traditional buffet or sit down dinner.
Pizza is my SO’s and my favorite food and I want it to be personal. Thoughts?

I think unusual pizzas might be awesome! Or what about grilled pizza? I think if it’s something a little jazzier than usual “pizza,” people would get excited about it! And vary up the shapes, sizes and crust types too… that would definitely make it more of a buffet 🙂 And don’t forget different sauce types too, since some people dont’ like tomato sauce–olive oil sauce, white sauce, etc. Good luck!!!!
Of course, I’m the kind of person that says “Go for whatever you want!” and plan on having all kinds of crazy stuff at my own wedding, so yeah, I am totally in support of this idea!

I think that sounds fabulous! I would be so excited if I was a guest at your wedding. I would suggest, though, that you have salad, breadsticks, etc. as side items for people who may not be as big of pizza fans as y’all are.

Would that be the main meal for your guest?
And what type of wedding formal-non formal?

Sounds good to me. I can’t imagine how good that reception room will smell with all the aromas of cheese and tomato sauce!!

Also I just thought of something… what if you did it more like a “make your own pizza station” with a salamander, mini pizza crusts of varying types and a chef to assemble it?
ETA btw a Salamander is a cooking device that broils the tops of things, getting the cheese melty and the toppings cooked. the crusts must be cooked in advance 🙂

One of the caterers we looked at did custom personal pizzas on these gorgeous marble slabs at every place setting. If it hadn’t been completely out of our price range, I would have signed immediately!

I think it’s the best idea ever!

It would be an informal wedding. Outdoors, very small, just close friends and family. I was originally thinking of doing a BBQ reception, but I thought that would come across as tacky. I’m just getting ideas… 🙂

I like it! Our cocktail hour is going to have a brick oven pizza station (yum!) I say go for it!

I think it’s a great idea

First of all, I don’t think BBQ receptions are tacky at all; there are quite a few people here thinking of doing them. That being said, looooove pizza! If it is your favorite food, have pizza. Other than the misguided complaint of it not fancy enough, really, why would a guest complain more than any other type of food? I actually saw on another wedding community a situation where a bride’s caterer was flaky and there was some question up until the morning of her wedding whether or not he was going to show. Her back up plan was Pizza Hut! I can’t tell you how many posters were disappointed that he pulled through. Everyone was rooting for a Pizza Hut reception! Funny how it’s such a great idea in that case but yet people are scared it might be tacky if it were to be the original plan!

I love the idea and might do something like this!
