I’m doing it! We are having a strolling reception in October with heavy butlered hors d’oeuvres, stationary hors d’oeuvre displays and then two small plate stations (petite filet mignon and butternut squash ravioli, both with veggies) and a potato martini bar with lots of toppings, including chicken pot pie stew.

I’m very happy about the decision as well. The best part of every wedding is the cocktail hour, so I wanted the whole event to have that fun, relaxed feeling. πŸ™‚


Can I ask if you are doing assigned seating or if you will just let people find seats where they like? I have heard pro and con arguments for both…

We are having stations! Food is really important to us, so its a great way to have lots of options.

We are having table assignments. We’ll start with a plated salad, then the stations.

Well, we’re doing stations, but it’s all in one small room with a line moving through, so it will probably work more like a traditional buffet. πŸ™‚

We’re doing assigned tables though, just so people don’t have to have the “where to sit?” moment. As a guest, that’s what I prefer.

We’re doing passed Hors d’oeuvres. Small plates, maybe a seated salad and 3 “meal” stations – steakhouse, with sides, etc. I am really excited about it. I find that no matter how good the caterer, you just can’t serve 200 people at the same time with good hot food.

We are doing 2 stations at the cocktail hour. A pasta station, served in cute mini martini glasses, and a meat station with lamb “lollipops”.  Dinner is going to be plated.  I have been to one wedding that was mostly stations, and the food was good. mmm fresh mac and cheese shooters.

I am doing stations for my wedding. It’s a more fun interactive way for quests to enjoy their meal. Everyone I have talked to that has been to a wedding with stations have liked it. My wedding planner even recommended stations over the other options. I am having a carving station, salad station, pasta station, and another set up with stuffed chicken, starches and vegetables, and butler passed hors de ourves for 150 people.
