Mini Food Bar

Mini foods are all the rage right now! Hosting a slider bar with all the fixings will be a big hit with your wedding guests.

S'mores Dessert Bar

Couples with a sweet tooth will be thrilled by a s'mores bar like this one! Since only a few basic items are needed to make them, it would be an affordable alternative to more expensive reception activities. Make sure your venue is on board, though. You’ll want to burn the place down with your smokin’ dance moves, not with an unruly campfire!
