- Wedding: May 2010 - Victorian Gardens of Two Sisters
I’ve been shopping around for caterers in my area and I’ve found that many from this area do not have a whole lot of options, especially for my budget. There is one, and I’ve heard great things about them, that have an endless list of menu items.
The owner suggested that, with my budget, we go with the gourmet burger bar. They grill angus beef patties, as well as chicken breasts, veggie options like portobello musrooms and roasted chiles, and offer tons of toppings and bread options. Sides would be a salad, sweet potato fries, onion rings and poppers.
I think it sounds fun, but I worry about what my guests will think. If you went to a wedding that served burgers for dinner, what would you think?

I think a burger bar is a great idea! If you’re having a casual wedding, it will go with that feel and if you’re having a more formal event, it will be a fun surprise!

That sounds just yummy to me! There’s a small restaurant chain in LA county (I think it’s just LA?) called the Counter. They serve up gourmet burgers with toppings, and the place is such a hit. I think it’ll be a lot of fun.

As long as you had chicken I would think it was pretty cool. I don’t need hoity toity hors d’oeuvres. 🙂

I think it would be fab. Just play up the gourmet-ness of it all. Nice signs indicating what all the toppings are would really look fancy. Serve locally brewed beers alongside and you’ve got yourself a party.

I think this sounds like a really great idea. Especially, what if you had a diner type theme to the reception? Then the gourmet burget bar is obviously very intentional. Just a thought 🙂

Yum! I could totally go for that. It’s not cheap at all and most people would rather have familiar comfort foods than fancy stuff they wouldn’t eat otherwise.

Mmm! I agree with making sure you have snazzy looking signage. It will take it up a notch from just a casual backyard bbq.
What kind of toppings would you have? Tons of gourmet cheeses & different sauces? Ohhh my gosh I want a burger so badly! It sounds awesome 🙂

Wow, I LOVE this idea. I’m a huge fan of the whole “build-your-own-burger” thing, and I think this idea is EXCELLENT. I don’t thnk it would look cheap in anyway at all.
