I looooove fresh, warm bread… hate buns. I would love to have warm loaves of bread brought to the tables right before the salad is served! IMO the best way to serve it is whole, meaning the guests would be required to slice it themselves. My mom thinks it’s lame-o… Blah, blah, blah.
So basically, I just need some back-up here ladies! Fresh warm loaves of bread that will require some gruntwork or kinda blah pre-sliced bread?

could you bake pull apart rolls? I make them for thanksgiving so they stay warm, just put balls of bread into the pan when you bakeand they rise and bake together, but they pull apart!

To be completely honest with you – I really don’t think you’re guests are going care much nor notice. Do what you want. But remember, people are more likely to grab a roll out of a basket than cut a loaf of bread – people tend to be more hesitant to be the first to do this so by the time they do, the bread won’t even be warm anymore.

to me it doesn’t matter as long as the bread is good! i am such a carb fiend that i love bread anyway it comes as long as it is warm and good. doesn’t matter if i have to cut it myself or not.

Could you have fresh bread but cut it into slices before it’s served?

One of our favorite restaurants bring their warm house bread to the table before we order our meal. I think your idea is a wonderful one, and as a guest, I would not mind at all. Just make sure you serve real butter with it.

@noritake: We’re having 3 types of butter… butter is my kryptonite! Lemon-herb, Garlic & Plain!
This was definitely a crazy bride moment for me! Deep down I knew no one would notice, but my mom kept harping on it! Honestly, it’s bread.
I’m at the point where everything is booked, planned & I’m in an awkward waiting stage. I just want the day to be here already… I have nothing better to do than over analyze all of my decisions. Sigh!!

I honestly think that while the bread would be nice, I can’t seem to cut it in a restaurant without crumbs everywhere. And I get weird about people putting their hand on the rest of the loaf while they cut it. Weird. How big are your tables?

I agree with Summer Camp!
