Once you have the basics planned for your wedding, it’s time to decide what additions you’ll include to make your big day memorable! An excellent way to get guests out of their seats and having a great time is an interactive station. These fun, creative stations are a good choice for any style wedding, but with so many options out there it can be hard to choose just one. Here are some delicious ideas for interactive stations that will surely impress your guests.
Flaming Doughnut Station
Here’s a station that’s equally entertaining as it is delicious! At a flaming doughnut station, an experienced chef sets donuts ablaze while sautéing them in sweet glazes. Choose a few flavors for the evening, like sweet rum and butter or pecan bourbon, and your chef will keep the fresh, flamed doughnuts coming out all night long.
Take your guests on a trip down memory lane with this nostalgic treat! A s’mores bar is the perfect late night snack option for brides and grooms who want to end the night with a special treat. Include the traditional fixings, but add some unexpected options like peanut butter cups, caramel chews and flavored marshmallows for a creative touch.
If there’s one interactive station that’s always a hit, it’s a photo booth! Rent a funky, vintage photo booth for printed strips, or get a sleek backdrop with a photographer on standby. Your guests will love posing with props, and the printed strips or digital photos make for excellent favors.
A popcorn bar has endless combinations and options, allowing everyone to get exactly what they want! Flavors, seasonings, and toppings can all be customized to create something fun and different. You just start with a variety of popcorn flavors that can be as basic or crazy as you’d like. From there, guests can add flavored seasonings and anything from gummy worms and melted chocolate to sprinkles or even caramel. This also makes for a great gift for your guests, as you can provide little take home bags for them to fill with their custom popcorn concoction.
You can never go wrong with a potato bar! Whether baked or mashed, this comfort food favorite is always a crowd pleaser. Your guests can enjoy buttery potatoes on their own or choose to load it up with all sorts of delicious toppings. A potato bar will surely help satisfy your guests’ hunger, and give them the proper fuel for dancing the evening away.
Mac and Cheese Station
This is probably the most filling of any of the stations listed here, but it’s also one of the most delicious options! Begin with a giant bowl of warm mac and cheese, and then you let your imagination run wild with topping ideas! Some traditional basics to have on hand are flaky salt, fresh cracked pepper and toasted breadcrumbs. From there, go crazy! Different meats, vegetables, herbs, and fancy cheeses will take your mac and cheese bar to the next level.
Cigars are one of the most traditional ways to celebrate special occasions! This conversation starter makes for an excellent surprise for your guests, especially if you want to add a masculine touch to the wedding theme. Guests can choose to enjoy the cigar during the reception or take one home as a favor. Either way, a cigar bar is a classy way to impress your guests.
