    I love this idea, I may steal it!!!  Haha, I think if you substituted the venison option for a good veggie burger, you’d be fine.  A lot of party rental places will rent out giant grills and / or the buffet server dishes if you need them!  I’m sure if you had 3-4 men in your family / friends each man a grill (men love grilling LOL) you’d have the burger varieties all fresh, and then you could have the bacon, eggs, etc. all cooked and kept warm in a serving dish.  

    Out of curiosity, for my own research sake, are you planning on having sides?  You could probably do all kinds of things with Quinoa, which is delicious and if you buy in bulk it’s quite cheap (and has protein, so this could even be a good vegetarian option too!)

    So glad you made this post!!! I have been wanting a burger sit down dinner in a wedding type way – so fancy burgers and could never figure out how to do it or what kind of burger. I love your idea and will definitely look into doing that… I’m curious what you’re having as sides too. All I could think of was french fries – haha!

     I also considered instead of veggie burgers, Ive seen some places do huge portebello mushrooms.

    I absolutely love laid-back wedding reception food…probably because I’m a fairly laid-back person in general…and this is an idea I’ve never seen before but absolutely love! I think you COULD self-cater, but it might be tricky for the meats…the best burgers are fresh and juicy and hot, which would be hard to do yourself. You could probably find a caterer for relatively inexpensive: or recruit someone you trust (family, friend: not someone in the wedding party, obviously!) to make the meats fresh, and you could have all the toppings pre-prepared. Tht’s what I’d probably do! And I’d definitely love the candy bar and sundae buffet as well!


    I just saw this on google: how cute would it be to have “special” burger ideas with your favorite toppings and meats (in addition to all the others)? Adorable!

    Sounds delicious! I would definitely hire someone to cater. Many venues require a licensed caterer and will not let you bring in your own food due to health safety regulations. Also, you will not have time to self-cater and your friends/family will miss the wedding because they are chained to the kitchen.

    Personally, I probably wouldn’t like it just because I’m not big on burgers. If you had venison or turkey,  I could survive. Or just pineapple I suppose. lol. I think you need to give people plenty of options, though. And maybe different types of bread.
