Has anyone ever been to an afternoon wedding with a baked potato bar? IF so – what did you think?
We were thinking about having a baked potato bar – because we wanted something we could do ourselves(cheap!)
We would of course – totally make it non-tacky with rustic/modern decor and table arrangement. And We have some of the prettiest turquiouse fiesta dishes to serve them (our color).
We were thinking that it would be so much easier than having a large variety of finger foods and so much easier for our casual fun wedding?
What do you guys think?

At our tasting, our caterer served a mashed potato bar, and it was fanastic! My fiance and I were so happy to put our favorite toppings on our potatoes. I think it’s a great idea!

I’ve never been to a wedding with a BAKED potato bar, but I have been to one with a MASHED potato bar. They served the potatoes in martini glasses, and the toppings were SOOOOOOOOOO good.

Baked potato bar is my favorite thing ever when its in our employee lunch room! You can get super creative with toppings too – weve done it with shrimp, mushrooms, chicken, short ribs, etc and its delicious!

Love this idea and I totally might steal it for our main side dish at our reception! 🙂 I definitely think you could do some fabulous things with a baked potato bar and have it be your “main” food. There are so many different toppings that go well on potatoes.
