We are having an informal wedding with slider station (shrimp po boy, french dip, and BBQ sliders). Should we go with a mashed potato bar (mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes with a variety of toppings) or a French fry bar (just potato and sweet potato French fries)?
we are also having a salad bar and a fruit display.

French fries on a station have a potential to be limp and soggy. At least on a warming tray mash potatoes will still be good.

Very true. I was thinking that as well. I guess I’m just worried that the mashed potatoes might be too heavy with the sliders

I think mashed potato is the safer choice. It can be kept warm without it going bad.
Soggy or cold chips are just awful:(

This poll made my mouth water. I’m on a diet and miss potatoes lol.

this might have been the hardest decision i’ve ever had to make 😛 but i went with French Fries, besides being the best thing everrr (aside from mashed potatoes, hence the decision issue lol) i think they will go better with the other food you are serving

Could you do a baked potato bar? Might be the best of both options…

Maybe a heating lamp would be good for the french fries? Not even sure if this is possible but just a thought…

I want to vote French fries but I feel like they will end up soggy and cold and icky so mashed is a much more viable option, plus they sound delicious too!

Your food sounds like it will be delicious! I don’t really like fancy food, so I think my dream wedding would be BBQ or pizza!
I voted for mashed potato bar…I’m just picturing mashed potatoes topped with cheese and bacon! Yum!

Thanks y’all! I think I’m going to stick with the mashed potato bar. Is simple and because its station style, people can just go back up to get mashed potatoes rather than eating it with the sliders.
