Top 10 Trends in Wedding Cocktail Party Stations


At Westminster Weddings, we’re known for our top-quality wedding fare, with our menus and dishes created by the chefs of Strip House New Jersey, on-site at our Livingston wedding venue.

We’ve seen many delectable dishes served at our weddings and celebrations, and we’ve also seen wedding guests thrilled to walk into the cocktail party to discover fabulous food stations. There’s something exciting about being able to walk up to your choice of wedding cocktail party stations and select from such a wide variety of gourmet fare, often prepared custom for you by chefs manning the stations.

Wedding couples (and their guests) consider the food at weddings to be a top highlight of the day – and many of our wedding couples say their guests are still raving about their wedding dishes years later. So to help you start planning your wedding cocktail party menu (which you’ll perfect at a private meeting with our chef,) here are the top 10 trends in wedding cocktail party stations:
