- Wedding: May 2016
My fiance and I have been trying to figure out what kind of food to serve at our wedding. We are doing an un-catered wedding (catering costs way more than I would like to spend.. and no one really has a menu that interests me).
I’ve seen a lot of posts from weddings that did a taco bar and I was kind of leaning towards that… but then we saw a picture of a grilled cheese bar and we both LOVE that idea. Of course we’d have a lot of choices for breads, cheeses, and other meats and vegetable add-ins so it wouldn’t be just a boring grilled cheese sandwich (but when is that ever boring..?)
The question I am posed with is… how do I make this work? The blog post that I found this from just had a small group and only had one or two panini grills… but I’m planning a wedding for around 120 people… a couple panini grills are not going to cut it. So, what would be the best way to do this? I haven’t seen any rental companies that have panini grills. Should I just rent a large griddle and have someone making the grilled cheese sandwiches? Should people build the sandwiches and then someone just throws the whole thing on the griddle?
Has/is anyone else doing some type of food bar that requires preperation or cooking? How are you doing it? I don’t want people to have to wait a really long time to get through the line though. Any tips or advice?
