mmm that sounds delicious! but just as a note – some people really don’t like/can’t eat cheese..would they be okay just not dipping the bread/etc.?

I looove fondue! However, I wouldn’t love to share a pot of fondue with everyone and their brother. I don’t mind sharing with a table of people I know, but the more people you add into the mix (especially if they all don’t know each other) the more questionable it gets. I guess if you had enough pots out it would be ok. But another issue is that it would be very labor intensive for you to melt all the cheese and actually make the fondue in each pot.

It’s a cool idea, but I second everyone’s concerns.  I used to do fondue at home all the time, but the preparation and cleanup became too labor intensive for me to enjoy — and that was when I was only feeding about 8 people! It’s delicious and fun to have for dinner, but so messy and hard to scrub the pots afterwards!  And Miss Sewing also had a very good point — I know SO MANY lactose intolerant and/or gluten-free people, that cheese and bread aren’t good options for our wedding, so you’d need to make sure that everyone would be able to eat it (or have other snacking options available). Very neat idea, but it seems challenging to pull off!

If you do decide to go that route — you should be fine preserving the chopped apple with a little lemon or lime juice.  As long as you chop them close to serving time (within a few hours?) and coat them lightly in lemon or lime, they should be fine.

OMG That sounds AMAZING!

Of course, I’m completely obsessed with Melting Pot – my favorite restaurant EVER. So anything involving fondue makes me happy 🙂

I love fondue and would personally love this option.  But I know other people are weird about that stuff and you would need alot of pots to do this (plus someone to keep stirring them so it doesnt get hard or a gross layer on top).  Plus keep in mind about the fondue forks, will everyone have one designated to them? Plastic ones that they can throw away after one use?

As much as I love fondue, I think it would be hard to pull off.  I think it would be too much work for you to do your self.  It might be a different story if the food you were making was “make ahead” food.  But you have to melt the cheese basically right then.  And with stuff like fondue, the likelihood of spilling something on your dress (or even your guests spilling something on their nice clothes) goes up.

I’ll be a party pooper and say that I, personally, don’t like cheese fondue, but it’s not to say I wouldn’t enjoy your reception with other foods though!! 🙂
