A staple in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures, mezze platters are a delightful and versatile way to keep your guests entertained while they wait for the main course. Read on to learn how to create a stunning mezze station for your wedding that your friends and family will never forget!

Start with the essentials: First and foremost, you will need traditional ingredients such as olives, hummus, baba ghanoush, stuffed grape leaves and pita bread. These are the staples of any mezze board, so make sure you have enough to feed all your guests. You can also add some trendy dips like tzatziki and muhammara to your collection. However, make sure that you maintain the authenticity of the mezze board by using quality ingredients.

Meat and cheese platters: The next essential addition to your mezze station is meat and cheese platters. Different types of meat and cheese, such as prosciutto, salami, feta and halloumi cheese with crackers or bread, will add visual appeal and taste to your overall presentation. Make sure that the meat is cut into bite-size pieces, and the cheese is sliced and arranged in an appealing way.

Assorted vegetables and dips: Be sure to include a variety of fresh vegetables such as carrots, radishes, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and bell peppers. You can add in some dips to go along with the veggies like a flavored yogurt dip or a spicy harissa dip. These dips and vegetables will allow your guests to have a healthier option while indulging in some variety.

Add creative touches: Consider incorporating your culture or personal style into your mezze station. You can add in some Mediterranean touch by incorporating grilled fish or some vegetarian Kebabs. You can also add in fresh fruits like berries, grapes or figs, to add a colorful touch to your stations.

Presentation is key: Consider how you will present your mezze station. Opt for a collection of wooden boards or slate plates to create a rustic and natural vibe. You can also add in some greenery in the background or use lanterns and votives to give a romantic touch to your station.

Mezze stations are an excellent way to keep your guests entertained and sated during the cocktail hour at your wedding. By following these tips, you will be able to design a mezze station that reflects your character, style and culture. When creating your station, remember to start with the essentials, add in some meat and cheese platters, assorted vegetables with dips, a creative touch, and a fantastic presentation.
