New Orleans Wedding Food Bar Ideas You’ll Love

Leave a comment

Food bars are a very special touch you can bring into your New Orleans wedding day. Although food has always been served at weddings, these bars have a unique quality that makes them downright fascinating for brides and grooms planning their wedding, as well as for guests who simply want to have fun celebrating their friends’ love story.

What are some of the wedding food bar ideas you haven’t heard of before, but which will really appeal to you? Read on and steal some inspiration.

  • A pie bar. This is absolutely perfect for a wedding planned in the Southern spirit – because, let’s admit it: what could be heartier, more welcoming, warmer, or more delicious, other than a table filled with the sweetest pies your guests have ever tasted?
  • Spud bar. Everyone loves potatoes. Mashed or fried, wedges or crinkle-cut, tater tots or baked – potatoes are simply universal. Organize a cute spud bar for your guests to snack on and they will definitely love the idea!
  • Hot chocolate bar. This is just perfect for the upcoming cool season, so if you want to have your wedding in the next few months, be sure to plan this hot chocolate bar! Provide people with different types of hot chocolate and toppings to warm up their bodies (and their souls) and you will win their unending love!
  • Croissant bar. Planning a brunch wedding? That’s a wonderful idea, especially if you want something elegant, but less pricy than a traditional dinner wedding! Pamper your guests with a variety of croissants and patisseries beautifully arranged on a special table – they will find it amazing!

Sure, traditional society may put a lot of emphasis on the bride. What she does during wedding planning, how her hair is done on the Big Day and even the way she walks, talks and smiles on her wedding day are all under permanent spotlight.

In modern days though, things have changed quite a lot. Not only isn’t the bride under constant “scrutiny”, but the duties and the excitement of a wedding are shared between the two members of the couple.

If you’re a groom-to-be, you know this better than anyone. And you know you want to look really great on your big day too. How to do it? Here are some fashion and style rules for grooms to remember:

  • Your suit or tuxedo should match the bride’s attire and the wedding party as well. They don’t have to be of the exact same colors, but they should coordinate in one way or another. This is not an absolute rule to follow, but it’s definitely a great idea.
  • On the other hand, you do have to make sure your suit/tuxedo meets the formality level of the event. You really don’t want to be underdressed or overdressed for your own wedding!
  • Also, please keep in mind that your attire should fit not only your body shape, but also your size. This is precisely why attending fitting appointments is so crucial for the success of your look on the wedding day.
  • Last, but not least, don’t forget to sneak in some accessories full of personality too. A classy watch or even a funky pair of cufflinks can transform the most basic tuxedo in a true fashion statement – and this will surely make you feel amazing.

Wedding traditions have been present for years, take a look at the top ones you should still follow:

Surrounded by a veil of traditions and customs, weddings are among the happiest and most important events in people’s lives. If you’re planning your own Big Day, you are most likely excited about the upcoming event – and you want it to be spectacular, unforgettable and truly magical as well.

However, which are the wedding traditions you should still follow? With so many superstitions and customs for just about anything wedding-related, it can be hard to decide – and this is why we have gathered some tips to help you with this. Read on and find out more about the wedding traditions you should definitely follow!

  • The wedding rings. They are not just mere pieces of jewelry – they are symbols of your everlasting love and of the grand commitment you are making to each other. These small precious circles on your fingers symbolize eternity, love and cherishment – so yes, you should definitely stick to this tradition.
  • The cake. The sweet treat at the end of the night is a really great tradition everyone loves. If you are not particularly fond of cake though, you can have a smaller one for the “Cutting of the Cake” moment and serve your guests other delicious sweet treats that would replace the traditional tiered dessert.
  • The bridal bouquet. Let’s admit it: carrying a beautiful bouquet down the aisle looks absolutely wonderful and it is so tightly connected to our idea of a wedding ceremony that it would be a real pity to “dispose” of this tradition. However, if you want to be more unique, you can surely give your bouquet an authentic twist – such as making it with heirloom brooches or paper flowers, for example.

Here at Food Art Inc., we want to help you have the wedding of your dreams. We have years of experience in planning unforgettable events, we love what we do and we can provide you with exquisite wedding planning services for your New Orleans wedding – so give us a call and let’s talk about your dream wedding right now!

Create a wedding reception timeline to help your big day run as smoothly as possible!

Planning a wedding is very much about the details – and about organizing them in a way that flows well and makes a lot of sense. For instance, your wedding reception timeline is one of the most important wedding planning elements – so make sure you take your time with it, so that your big day runs smoothly and flawlessly.

How do you do this? How do you plan a wedding reception timeline that really makes your big day be perfect? We have gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • Think of how much time you have. Some brides and grooms choose to have only a two-hour cocktail reception, while others choose to have a four-hour seated dinner party. Whichever you choose, make sure your wedding reception timeline is well-aligned with how much time you have at your disposal.
  • Know the basics. Regardless of how long you want your wedding reception to be, there are some basics that shouldn’t miss out. Some of the most important parts of a reception include (in their traditional order): the first dance, the father-daughter and mother-son dances, the toasts, the cake cutting and the farewell dance. Depending on your preferences, you might also have a bouquet toss and a garter toss moment as well (they are usually done after the cake cutting and before the farewell dance).
  • Be clear about when food is served. If you want to have a cocktail party, food can be served throughout the entire program (except for the special moments, such as the first dance, when food serving should be paused). If you want to have a seated dinner reception, the food should be served after the wedding toasts and first dance (but before the father-daughter and mother-son dances).

Escort cards can be created very unique, but did you know that there are edible options as well?

Escort cards make it easier for the guests to find their seat and start to celebrate as soon as they reach your wedding reception. And although it is not mandatory that you make these as unique as possible, the truth is that your escort cards can make a fun, delicate and personal addition to the entire wedding theme.

Sure, you may have considered a wide range of options when it comes to your escort cards – from what fonts to use on them to how they should be shaped. But did you know that there’s always the option of having edible escort cards at your wedding?

We have gathered some of the best ideas to inspire you in creating escort cards that are unique and delicious – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away – so why not offer your guests a very healthy treat before they start celebrating with you? Even more, why not make this treat an escort card as well? Stick small leaf-shaped pieces of paper to each of the apples and write your guests’ names and their tables on them – it will look really adorable.
  • Pick your favorite cookies or sweet treat (be it cupcakes, macarons or pretty boxes of your favorite candy) and stick your escort card information to them. This looks playful, it will sweeten up your guests and it will add a personal touch to your wedding too.
  • If you and your future spouse have a favorite type of soda (or homemade juice), pour it in mini-bottles and personalize them with unique, cute labels (you can even toss in a pun or a joke, if you want to). Add your escort card info on the labels (or stick it on the neck of the bottle) and allow your guests to find their seat at the most amazing wedding they have ever been to!

Take a look at these creative, yet unexpected ways to include wine bottles into your wedding

Leave a comment

Food Art

Your wedding décor should be just as unique as you are – so you should definitely feel free to include less traditional ideas in it. For instance, have you ever considered wine bottles could be a part of your wedding décor, and not just behind the bar?

In fact, this idea is really beautiful, creative and elegant and it can fit into a wide range of wedding themes. We have gathered some of the best wine bottle-inspired tips, so read on if you need some inspiration on this.

  • Wine bottles can look gorgeous as wedding centrepieces. Use them as such, without any kind of label on them, for a very simple, rustic wedding décor. Use them spray-painted in your wedding color(s) for a unique touch on every table. And use them with a personalized cute label for an adorable touch.
  • Fairy-tale décor. If you don’t want to use the bottles as centrepiece vases, you can use them as accent lights for every wedding table (use festoon lights inside the bottle to make everything look whimsical and pretty).
  • Guest book. Instead of having your guests sign a traditional guest book, ask them to sign a larger bottle of wine. Not only will this be a very original idea, but it will also allow you to keep your “guest book” in plain sight once the Big Day is over (as a vase in your living room or simply as a décor element in your kitchen, for example).
  • Wedding favors. Everyone loves good wine, so why not make this your gift for the guests? Give them cute-labelled mini-wine bottles as wedding favors and they will definitely want to take them back home.

Searching for a wedding planner to help you put together the perfect wedding your love story deserves? Contact Food Art Inc. and we will make sure all the details of the Big Day will be flawlessly handled!
