Traditionally, the choice for how you would serve the food at your wedding reception boiled down to 2 options: sit-down style and buffet style.
We broadened the topic of wedding reception style and wedding food somewhat in our handy infographic 4 wedding reception choices (with pros and cons!) to help you decide, as well as our top 10 reasons to have a brunch wedding.
Today’s hot new wedding food trends, however, embrace broader, more non-conventional food-serving options.
One wedding catering trend is DIY wedding food stations which are a fun way to let your guests serve themselves when it’s time to eat.
Another hot, new wedding trend is interactive wedding food and drink stations where your wedding guests can customize their food, desserts and drinks. In this type of setting, you can have a chef, bartender or sommelier on hand to interact and explain the origins of a dish, dessert, wine or other beverage to your wedding guests.
And then there is the growing trend of wedding reception food trucks, as we showcased in 10 great ideas for how to use a food truck at your wedding.

This trend-turned legitimate wedding food option is ideal for an awesome cocktail hour, or even a fun accent during your reception!
