That sounds fine to me! Although when I read about apps most of what I came across said to assume at least 2 per app type per person, and thinking about it, I almost never eat just one of something- What if it was the most amazing satay ever!

We were also thinking of a mash potato bar as well so I’m hoping someone who actually pulled it off chimes in!

How about a baked potato bar instead?  With tons of toppings…  I am just thinking how awful it is when mashed potatoes aren’t hot anymore.

I went to a wedding with a mashed potato bar and it was awesome. It was my favorite part of their food

I would love to be a guest at a wedding with a mashed potato bar. I think it’s a great idea, but I also agree with BeckyS0. I would definitely increase the number of apps.

I love this idea.   And a neat way to serve it is in some sort of stemware, that way they are easy to hold.  And you don’t have a lot in the serving so it doesn’t have a chance to get cold.  They can always go back for seconds.

I would make sure that they are mashing REAL potatos not boxed/ instant though.

I used to be a server at a country club that did mashed potato bars at their weddings.  They were a huge hit!  There was an attendant that would mix up the potatoes for you as you came up, so they were never cold.  They did mashed sweet potatoes too with marshmellows, brown sugar, and other sweet stuff.  I say go for it, yummmm!!!

We had one and it was my favorite part of all the food too! There was a server who kept everything steaming, so nothing got a chance to get cold. We served in martini glasses.

The reception was also a cocktail reception with additional meat carving and pasta stations and raw bar. We had 8 different kinds of apps, and they figured on 8 per person.

We did a mashed potato bar for my sister’s engagement party served in martini glasses.  People loved it!  I think it would work well at a wedding just because people like to personalize their food and “have it their way.”

When looking at your appetiziers though I would change them up a bit as there are 3 chickens and one veg.  Maybe a little more variety?
