Buffet dinner station options

Karley, on December 27, 2019 at 17:57 Posted in Wedding reception

We're planning to do a buffet for dinner at our wedding reception. However, instead of a standard buffet, we're hoping to have three different stations set up throughout the room. The plan right now is to have a taco bar and then a pasta station (with 3 different types of pasta), however I'm not sure what we could do for the third station. All suggestions would be appreciated Smiley smile

    Hmmm, so far you have mexican and italian? so maybe go for just burgers or pizza? Or a pulled pork sandwich type of station?

    I agree with the idea of asking your guests what they would most likely go for to try and get a good idea.

    Another really awesome idea. I don't think we will have people RSVP'ing for their chosen station as I had envisioned people going to multiple stations if they wished, but now that you mention it, it may be wise. I'll have to think about it Smiley smile

    Really like this suggestion with regards to not having to spoon things out! Something to keep in mind for sure Smiley smile

    Thanks for the suggestion! I also like the idea of sides at each station as they can then be a little more unique to that station. Love the pizza idea Smiley smile

    Maybe burgers. Options like pulled pork, chicken, and beef with lots of veggies and condiments. Pasta and tacos can pretty easily be vegetarian so a meaty station should be safe.


    Will you have people RSVP for their chosen station so you know roughly how much to have prepared? Just thinking I would eat either but if you have picky eaters (or adventurous eaters with eyes bigger then their stomachs) you might have an uneven consumption.

    You could do bites like sliders or other small snacks that people can load up on or trickle back to, that way they can easily grab them and not hold up the line spooning things out.

    I love sweets and immediately wanted to shout CREPES at you 😅. As already suggested, pizza or carving station are both good ideas Smiley smile.

    I'd do it at each station that way everyone won't be lined up to get the sides at one single station and will instead still be spread out across the room. The carving station is also a great third option, but I'm a pizza lover and feel compelled to suggest that lol

    Thanks for the great idea! Currently undecided whether different sides should be available at each of the main stations or a separate station.

    I would do a carving station for the 3rd one. I think that is different enough from the others. Will you have salads/veggies/sides available at a separate table or will they be at the different stations?
