I’ve heard it done the same way as ittagonzalez said, with martini glasses and all the toppings you can imagine to add.

The one thing I have decided for my wedding is mashed potatoes…mmmm, my favorite. But I’m still not convinced that the mashed potato bar is the way to go. Having it in a martini glass seems odd to me.

I’ve heard of mashed potato bars, but I’ve only seen them in my dorm dining hall. 😉 Not sure I would do this for a wedding.

My brother’s wedding they had one.  They had regular mashed potatoes and then sweet potatoes.  Then they had all the toppings.  Sour cream, chives, butter, maple brown sugar etc.  My SIL wanted them served in martini glasses which they did but the glasses took 2-3 scoops of potatoes to look full and the cater didn’t allow for that, so about 1/3 of the guests didn’t get any. 

They looked pretty though in the martini glasses but need to keep in mind it takes more scoops then just putting it on a plate.

i’ve seen them at a few corporate cocktail party type events, and then once at a wedding last year (always in a martini glass).   Of course, I LOVE Mashed potatos…so I ate an entire glassful during the wedding cocktail hour…and wasn’t even hungry by the time dinner rolled around.  

So, although I’d love to have one at my own wedding…i fear that my guests will be just like me!   I’ll pay $140 for them to eat that night…and they will only eat .50 cents of mashed potatoes!

I’ve heard of it!  It sounds delish.  Just think of all the possibilities:  garlic mashed potatoes, cheesy mashed potatoes, mashed potatoes with bacon, sweet potato mashed potatoes . . . yum.
