Snack bars have become all the rage at weddings these days. As one of the best wedding venues in Dallas TX, the staff at Mill Creek Ranch Resort just loves it when brides have a little snack bar for their guests. They provide a great transition between the ceremony and dinner service, and the self serve nature of them keeps folks mingling instead of congregating by the kitchen doors waiting for the next waiter holding a tray of teeny tiny appetizers. The snack bar also serves as a wonderful personal touch, as the snack item is typically something the couple really enjoys themselves. You can get nearly as creative as you want with the snack bar; simply come up with a clever display for any snack or finger food you both enjoy as a couple. Here are a few great ideas to mix up the old favorites:
Popcorn bar: All you need is a variety of flavors from any gourmet popcorn store. You can set the popcorn out in bins with little scoops to put in the red and white striped cardboard boxes (kinda like the movies), or pre package them out in adorable little bags and display them by flavor. This also works with your favorite variety of chips. Cheesy poof bar anyone?
Fruit and veggie bar: For a little healthier and lighter option, set out single serve cups with fruit and/or veggies and provide different little dips for them. Use different dressings for the veg, and things like chocolate or nutella for the fruit.
Popsicle bar: Having a wedding outside in Texas’ summer heat? Cool your guests off with a popsicle bar! If you’re planning on doing homemade popsicles, try some in boozy flavors (like margarita or mojito!). Just make sure you clearly separate the boozy pops from the virgin ones for kids and non drinkers, and make sure to provide LOTS of napkins so nobody drips on their nice clothes.
We haven’t forgotten about dessert! Not a cake person? Do a dessert bar!
S’mores bar: All it takes is a nice little display of those gas-lit catering flames and some kabob sticks to make this happen at your wedding. For an extra touch, pre package little S’mores kits to go in clear plastic bags so guests can opt to take some home!
Donut Bar: Have a favorite donut place? Whether it’s Krispy Kreme or a local hot spot, donuts make a sweet and colorful addition to any dessert menu! Looking for something a little different? Make it a cronut bar!
