Your guests may not remember all the details of your wedding day, but creating a dinner menu with food you and your spouse love will certainly be something they won’t forget. A current exciting and yummy wedding trend that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser among guests is forgoing the usually sit-down dinner or buffet and instead incorporating food stations during cocktail hour and/or the reception. Below are some mouthwatering ideas that will leave your guests with full stomach’s and fun memories.
The fun flavor and personality of food stations can be carried over to beverages as well. Channel your creativity with drink station set ups, whether it be for a signature cocktail, Italian sodas, fresh juices, or infused waters.
Are you and your future spouse lovers of all things breakfast, or maybe you are thinking outside of the traditional box and deciding to have a day wedding. Either way, choosing a breakfast/brunch menu is a great way to serve up some of your favorite foods, especially since it’s the most important meal of the day.
Creating a make your own omelet bar or a flapjacks station is certainly a fun way for guests to try a little bit of everything. Donuts will most definitely be on the menu (because after all they are their own food group right?), it is always nice to throw in some healthier options as well. You can easily add in some fruit toppings for waffles and pancakes or even these cute individual parfaits.
You can’t have an early riser’s meal without a freshly brewed cup of coffee. For those of your guests that aren’t coffee drinkers, cold-pressed fruit juices or a mimosa bar are other excellent options.
This past fall, we were able to create a truly special day for Jackie and Drew. The reception was held at the Lageret in Stoughton, WI. And the beauty of their wedding day was captured by Katy O’Dell. Thank you both for allowing us to create this wonderful day for you and congratulations!
Once your man has finally popped the question, and after you answer with an exuberant “YES!”, it is time to say “yes” to the dress. From a very young age, we are all dreaming of our perfect wedding day, especially what we will be wearing while making our journey down the aisle. With all eyes on the bride, it is no doubt everyone wants to look their best. MinkMaids is an amazing resource to help make this dream a reality.

We love any reason to celebrate and took some time last year to celebrate the arrival of spring with our families and friends! Olin Park Pavilion was the perfect venue and some small furry friends were the stars of the show!!
A special thanks to A la Crate Vintage Rentals, Event Essentials, Crescendo Coffee, Bloom Bake Shop, KP Designs, and Carly McCray for making this special event possible!
One important aspect of a wedding that can often be overlooked by the bride and groom is lighting. Spending some time on this detail can really leave an impact, drawing the attention of guests and adding drama to any setting. Radiant chandeliers or twinkling canopy lights can be the perfect finishing touch to a soft, romantic wedding. Looking for something a bit more contemporary or urban, overhanging wired light bulbs can be a wonderful choice. Remember, with whatever route you go, getting a little creative and choosing the right lighting can really contribute to and transform your wedding décor, creating an unforgettable ambiance.
It is every couples hope that their guests will feel the beauty of the wedding aisle regardless of the extravagance. While it is the couples’ pathway to the alter, your guests will hopefully appreciate the journey to their seats as well, signifying the start to a wonderful day. If your ceremony will be held indoors, there are many details that can be added to your venue to create the picture perfect aisle. Check out these ideas to spruce up the walkway to “I Do”.
