A great way to get your family and friends jazzed about the food offerings at your wedding reception is to give them lots to choose from. One hot way to do that right now? A food bar.

One dessert that deserves a place at your wedding reception is the French favorite: crepes. Provide fruits, chocolate mousse, lemon curd and chocolate-hazelnut spread and your guests won’t stop raving about the sweetness.

SUNDAE BAR

If you’re having a family-friendly bash, consider an ice cream sundae bar reminiscent of an old-fashioned scoop shop. Provide classic sundae dishes instead of cones, to prevent guests from dripping on their party clothes!

S’MORES BAR

Different flavors of graham crackers and chocolate, even flavored marshmallows, can kick a s’mores bar up a notch, and provide a fun activity while guests roast their creations over a fire.

TRAIL MIX BAR

Send guests home with a healthy, sweet snack that they mix together themselves. Set out empty jars and let everyone choose between peanuts, pretzels, raisins, chocolate candies and other goodies.
