TGIF! Alcoholic, Appetizer, and Desert Bars

The weekend is upon us! What better way to celebrate the weekend than with a wedding? This weekend is jam-packed for me: I’m setting up a wedding at Retro Ranch and modeling at Premier Bridal Show’s Cerritos Convention this weekend. But before I go, I want to show you one of my favorite elements of a wedding- the bar!

Alcoholic Bars

Mimosa Bar- Unique Wedding Bars- Alcoholic, Appetizer, and Desert Bars on earlyivy.wordpress.com

Whether you’re having a few drinks before the wedding, a morning ceremony and reception, or a morning after brunch before the honeymoon, this mimosa bar is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Decorations are light and whimsical and set up couldn’t be easier! All you need is champagne, juices of your choice, fruit, and glasses. Let your guests DIY their favorite drink!

Cocktail Bar-  Unique Wedding Bars- Alcoholic, Appetizer, and Desert Bars on earlyivy.wordpress.com

Here’s a lovely cocktail bar designed by Night Owl Productions. When you hire a bar tending service for your wedding, your bar will be constantly stocked, your guests will be quickly served, and your drinks will be mixed perfectly!

A self-serve beer bar might be the perfect bar if you’re going for the retro look- or even better if you brew your own beer! Reusable cups, or in this case, mason jars, provide a eco-friendly alternative to all those empty beer bottles. Refills, anyone?

Non-Alcoholic Bars

What fun is a non-alcoholic bar? Lots of fun! Bars aren’t just about drinks anymore!

Pick-Your-Potato Bar - Unique Wedding Bars- Alcoholic, Appetizer, and Desert Bars on earlyivy.wordpress.com

Here’s a new twist on a buffet line- a potato bar! A design-your-own potato with every way to serve a potato and with all the trimmings will satisfy any hungry guest. This bar includes potato skins, wedges, french fries, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, and tater tots, and four kinds of sauces for drizzling and dipping, and toppings like chives and bacon.

S'mores Bar-  Unique Wedding Bars- Alcoholic, Appetizer, and Desert Bars on earlyivy.wordpress.com

This s’mores bar looks like so much fun! When the sun goes down, the fire comes out and guests get to create their favorite campfire treat. Set up and creation are simple and the results are delicious!

Candy Bar-  Unique Wedding Bars- Alcoholic, Appetizer, and Desert Bars on earlyivy.wordpress.com

On an equally sweet note, candy bars are not only enticing to eat, but also captivating to look at. You can easily find or order candy to coordinate with your wedding’s color scheme. Candy bars can be placed along with your cake (hint: you may not want to serve cake to your guests if you have a candy bar), combine it with a desert table, or arrange it on its own. To learn more, read The Knot’s guide to make your own candy bar.

And of course, I must add one last (alcoholic) bar that I helped set up with Night Owl Productions at Retro Ranch. I love the florals and the marquee sign!

    • It’s absolutely acceptable! You could create a fun bar of typical hors d’oeuvre foods or mini versions of food you love, like hamburgers, tacos, or grilled cheese sandwiches- just make sure your guests know they’ll be eating light and may want to eat a main meal before the ceremony.
