Everyone is always looking for new and improved ways to pump up their wedding reception. Well, we have a solution for you! Unique wedding bars. “Whether you’re going for casual late-night eats or highlighting a chef’s table for a special tasting, a food bar is full of flavor and personality — and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for your guests” (brides.com).

Planning a brunch reception? Keep these food bar ideas in mind!

Mimosa Bar. Since you’re having a brunch reception, people may not be in the mood for hard liquor (yet). Give them the option to make their own mimosas. Offer different juices and to add to the decoration, throw in some fresh fruit to top off each drink.

Now to the classic food bar. Let’s mix it up.

Potato Bar. Mashed potatoes, french fries, tater tots, baked potatoes, oh my. And all the toppings you could ever think of, like bacon, cheese, sour cream, butter, ranch, and so much more. Carb overload! (especially if it’s been a long night).

Sushi | Sake Bar. Get ready to get the party rolling. Sushi is a such a pop-culture phemonemon right now. We’ve had great response from creating a sushi/sake bar!  Having different assortments of sushi rolls for all of your guests to enjoy with a shot of sake on the side represented the Bride and Groom’s love for the popular meal.

Chick-fil-a Bar. Now this would really make me happy. For all of you Southerners, Chick-fil-a is a way of life. Having a bar stocked with different chick-fil-a menu items is a sure fire way to win over your guests. Perfect late-night, grab-and-go, on-the-road snack.

This weekend’s wedding hosted a dessert station with handmade goods from Savannah’s Candy company, Nashville Goo Goo Cluster selections, as well as a vintage Donut Shop’s delicious treats. The donuts were specifically requested due to the groom being a Nashville Metro Police Officer!

Cue The Beatles, because the 70s have officially returned. The boho chic wedding trend has become by far one of the most popular fads this year. “Think floral, nomadic, free-spirited and non-conformist – hippie meets gypsy” (inkedweddings.com). With the return of the 70s style on the runways as well as music festivals becoming the “it” thing to do this year, brides and grooms are channeling their inner Coachella on their special day.

Fashion. Boho chic wedding dresses are flowy and airy from off-the-shoulder accents to a load of lace to the cinched in waist. Last year Glamour Magazine predicted the off-the-shoulder wedding dress trend for this year and man were they right. Bridesmaids dresses are in muted, neutral colors to stay with the natural theme of a boho chic wedding; letting nature and the bride and groom be the focus. Also, the groom’s style is evolving as well. Some grooms are moving away from the traditional, formal black tuxedo and are now sporting a grey or brown or even blue suit with no jacket.591492aa0d6be7304747279523ab7034e0d343bf0a3debb5e7bed9ee075f35f248bf3e14638f54799fe545d1dddd8e85Flowers. A TON of flowers. Think flower crowns and overflowing bouquets and centerpieces that make you feel like you are in a beautiful garden. All of the flowers “seem freshly picked right off the field” (www.bowsandbuttons.company).72fb60526aa5ae7227c69d8d2a4a9a5e0e1050ea6ef77f995cc5cc1f27cda8f58fa6e5a1d97e34b97d29426bf1f54179 According to brides.com, popular boho chic flowers include: hydrangeas, peonies, roses, dahlias, carnations, and of course eucalyptus leaves.Flower crowns became popular last year and boho chic brides are embracing them. Such a hippie accessory.

Venue. Staying with the hippie meets gypsy theme, boho chic weddings are usually held outside in a beautiful grass field with gorgeous views. Just the great outdoors and love in the air. Flower petals are strewn throughout the grass to add some color. Pews or chairs are set out for family members to enjoy and there may quite possibly be a barn in the background. All about nature.

And like the Beatles said, “All you need is love. Love is all you need.” Ain’t that the truth.
