ItsShannonK13 :  we had a gourmet poutine station set up as the late night snack at 11ish. (Poutine is a French Canadian thing; fries, cheese curds & gravy)

It was good way to have the food we REALLY wanted, and kept the main meal more traditional. That said, if I went to a wedding and the main course was pizza I’d be 10/10 thrilled.

i think it’s your wedding and you should do whatever you want!

Personally I’d be thrilled with pizza at a wedding, and I love how some Bees have visually presented some ideas, especially @Bananafishsal !

Go for it!

Pizza is always okay. I don’t care if you serve it off the floor it’s still pizza and delicious.

However you present it, make sure you consider how people will actually eat it…nobody wants to get grease stains on their nice clothes. Make sure there’s plenty of napkins and sturdy plates.

What exactly is the term “white trash” supposed to mean anyway?

ItsShannonK13 :  who cares if it’s classy? Honestly from what I could tell, people really love the change of pace at a wedding (we grilled and we’re classy at all, tons of compliments). You’ll probably have a lot of thrilled guests. Maybe provide a pasta dish for those who want their pinkies in the air. 

Other than that, don’t serve it from greasy boxes onto wimpy paper plates, provide silverware for cutting into bites and you’re probably set. I’ve never heard of this place but you got a lot of bees saying how good it is… I want to try!

My husband considers any wedding that has pizza to be an awesome wedding. LOL. With that said, I think it depends on the style of your wedding. If it’s really formal and everyone will be dressed up, it might be hard to eat pizza with your hands and all that gooey cheese going everywhere.  If it’s more laid back, then I think some of the previous posts are great ideas for how to serve pizza.  We went to a wedding where pizza was served as a late night snack after dinner and it was really nice.

I think that if you have them put the pizza on decent serving dishes and serve it alongside a nice salad, a pasta side for people who may prefer that, some bread, and keep the boxes well out of sight, it’ll be just fine. I never understand why people think bland catered chicken/steak is classy but pizza isn’t. I’d 1000% rather have something tasty that holds up well (which, pizza does).

One my favorite weddings I went to had pizza brought in for a late night snack, way after the main meal and it was HUGE hit. Think about somehthing like that?

1) Proper plates and napkins. 

2) Add relevant sides like salad or pasta

3) Present it nicely (not still in the box)

4) Match the venue. Probably doesn’t work at the Waldorf Astoria. Works well for outdoor weddings, barn weddings, etc.

This is coming from someone who had tacos at our wedding:

I think we should ask for a little more context. Is your wedding more on the casual side? Mine definitely was so the tacos were welcomed and appropriate. 

I’ll agree with PP that I’d much rather eat pizza than a traditional “catered” wedding meal any day. But I like the new direction modern weddings are headed with their food choices. There are ways to display it better than a pizza box for sure. You *may* get some comments from guests so be prepared, but it’s your wedding so do as you want.

Anonymous1063 :  it’s generally a derogatory term for white people who may be of a lower economic class. I think OP was trying to say she didn’t want her wedding to come across as trashy generally… don’t think the race of the people involved really matters for her question.

My wedding is small and a second wedding, so take my comments for what they’re worth! We are having a brick oven pizza bar at our wedding that is taking place at a brewery that my friend owns.  His food is delicious and this is exactly what we want so we are happy.  It is a more casual wedding though, and more of a party than a reception.  As another poster said, I think as long as it’s not in boxes, it’s fine.  A lot of people would love pizza at a wedding!

White Trash is like the same as trailer trash.
