Fabulous Friday: Favors & Wedding Bars

Friday, December 21, 2012

Twas the TGIF before Christmas and today's post is all about wedding bars! I'm not talking about the latest and greatest in alcohol selection, rather the quirky, unexpected and often mouthwatering delights or creative favors that guests get to take home. I know the candy and dessert bars are always a huge hit but I especially love going to a wedding where the couple throws you for a curve ball (the good kind)!

There are wedding bars that serve as customized mini buffet stations as well as interactive take away treats that have significance to the bride and groom. Two keys to an amazing bar are: presentation and offering a variety of fixins. Here are a few of my faves!

Mashed potatoes served in a Martini Glass (aka "Mashtini"), the ultimate appetizer!

 A Colorful Candy Apple Bar to celebrate the kid in all of us!

A Gourmet Popcorn Bar for late night munchies!

What a lovely favor, a sachet keepsake to fill your car or home with the blissful scent of romance!

~Other mention-worthy/notable wedding bar ideas~

Pasta Bar
This would require a live chef to heat up all the fixin's

Mimosa or Yogurt Bar
Perfect for a brunch wedding or shower

Lastly, i'll leave you with this awesome lil' read by Emmeline Bride that has great tips regarding Wedding Favors. Since favors are a bonus, you may as well consider some practical advice so your money and effort is well spent and enjoyed!
