I would prefer pizza over 90% of the wedding food I’ve had in my lifetime. I say do it! Obviously if you’re planning a super-formal reception it won’t work, but as a guest, I’d be thrilled to chow down on some pizza.

ETA: Why, oh why did I click that link?? I’m so hungry now. 🙁

Pizza is one of my favorite foods ever, so yes I’m a fan. If people are not into eating with their hands, provide some forks and knives so they can cut it up into pieces and eat with their fork. My mom does that sometimes haha and I’m sure others do too

I saw someone have pizza at their wedding on the show called Four weddings and it look so cheap and tacky sorry. Maybe for a rehersal but not for a wedding. The girl who did it got the lowest points. Just not a big fan especially when the guest are wearing all formal attire just no. 

Than again its your wedding if you want to have pizza than do that just let your guest know ahead of time just so they could bring extra clothes in the car just in case of greasy hands.

Bored6:  Did you click the link in the original post? I think if it’s executed properly, it can look quite cute for a rustic, backyard-style wedding. Give me pizza over generic, bland, re-heated banquet hall food any day. Obviously it’s a no-no for a formal wedding, but I get the distinct impression that the OP isn’t planning a formal wedding.

applecat:  Yes I clicked on it I’m still not a big fan. Just my personal opinion. You don”t need to agrre with me. It’s op wedding. If they want pizza they can have pizza.

I can eat pizza anytime of the year so I would rather not do it for a wedding. I rather go to a bbq wedding, with ribs, steaks, corn on the cob, than a pizza one.

We are thinking about also having a Pizza truck come to cater our wedding. (They do really nice proper Italian Pizza). 

Everyone loves Pizza (and they can just choose their own topping!) I want to find out too how quickly they can get it out…would be awkward if there was a massive delay! But I think if you just ask the people they should give you an honest answer!

Pantone032: we’re doing a wood fire pizza truck at our after party dinner. I’m pretty excited, since it’s farm to table pizza in Sonoma, so a nice blend of hipster + local.

Heavy enough to sop up the alcohol from day drinking (we’re doing a brunch wedding) but light enough to not sit in one’s stomach the way NY or Chicago style pizza does. Those are both great styles of pizza (I can eat 1/2 a Chicago pie and 3/4 of a NY pie by myself) but not one I’d want after my wedding. 

We are offering plates + cutlery, but not doing it up Pinterest style. It’s an after party for us.

Our original wedding dream was to rent out an arcade bar and order pizzas and beer for all our friends! I still get a tiny twinge of regret that we didn’t just stick with that plan because it would have been awesome. 

I say do it!

I love pizza but it has to be done right. If you are going for something super fancy it may not work. I love the idea though. Who doesn’t like a good pizza

The proliferance of food sensitivities may make this option  tricky. If they can offer deliciousness for the gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free crowd, it could work. That said, I have yet to find a pizza that is tasty while also meeting this criteria.

can u get exotic pizza with like funky flavors like artichoke and pesto and make it more “gourmet” pizza? i’d take that over any seated, plated dinner. 🙂

I think if it’s done the right way, it can be nice. I wouldn’t get it catered by Pizza Hut and have all the open pizza boxes for guests to help themselves… but if it’s a seated, plated meal and the pizza is more on the gourmet side, I think it could be quite nice.

Pantone032:  My friends had pizza and salad at their wedding. It was amazing! I think it’s a great idea.
