We are having food stations at our wedding. Two different salads, 3 different pastas ,2 entree choices along with sides, all at their own stations. I was thinking of putting something on my wedding website mentioning that we are having stations. But for some reason I cannot figure out how to word it or what to write. Should I put something on the website or just let the guests be suprised? Any opinions/wording help?

I vote for surprising them as well. Sometimes less is more.
Honestly the last thing you need is a bunch of “naysayers” making comments about the food on FaceBook etc before they’ve even arrived at the Wedding, seen the Venue, or sampled the spread.
If it is a case tho where you’d want everyone to know the various options (so they don’t miss out on anything) you could have your DJ / MC make an annoucement at the beginning of the meal something along the lines of…
“Dinner is now served (or the Buffet is Open). Be sure and check out the various stations we have this evening including 2 Salads, 3 Pastas and the ___ and ___ Entrees as well.”
Hope this helps,

I would vote for surprising the guests, but then asking them to RSVP with food allergies (assuming they don’t think to tell you otherwise). If you post your menu, you’ll just end up with extra stress during the hectic planning process from people who are out to criticize.

I am putting my menu on my website as well as including a card with the invitations as to what type of reception it will be. My reception is from noon- 3pm we are having an English Afternoon Tea Reception, I am letting everyone know so they make sure to eat breakfast before my 10:30 am reception. I don’t wqant them to think I am feeding them a full lunch.

@lilbluebird: I totally agree with this; surprise them all, but make sure they RSVP allergies or dietary restrictions!
