TOP 5 | BARS

Happy Wednesday! We hope you had a magical Valentine's Day full of love, chocolates and gorgeous blooms! To keep the love going, we are going to share with you our five favorite bars that we're currently swooning over, and no it's not all "adult beverage" bars like you might be thinking of.... although it did make the cut! 

1. Pie! Pie bars are becoming seemingly more and more popular because it gives the guests a variety and can be less expensive than a wedding cake! We love the way tables look with multiple aspects and flavors! In our opinion, pie is much easier to serve as well! All in all.... pie is a win win!

2. Candy! In supplement of a cake, a candy bar is a fun way to allow the guests to make their own goodie bags to take home full of candy that they love! Once again, variety is a huge factor in a candy bar. M&M's make a great choice if you're particular about the candy following the color scheme of your wedding! There are so many different candies that no candy bar will be the same as the last one you might've seen!

3. Donut! Yum yum yum! A good donut will always satisfy the soul. They can be gourmet or just the traditional glazed and chocolate sprinkle because they're all delicious! What's great about a donut bar is that you do not have to worry about having someone take their time out of the celebration to cut the cake (but hey don't worry, we offer cake cutting!) and get all messy! Donuts are grab-and-go treat so the party can keep on rolling!

4. Smores! Okay... what is much better than smores? A warm ooey-gooey marshmallows with melted chocolate surrounded by a sweet graham cracker is certainly a crowd pleaser, especially for the youngins on the guest list! 

5. And last, but certainly not least... Alcohol! Isn't there a saying "Alcohol... because no great story ever started with someone eating a salad"? Well that's why alcohol made the cut of our top five favorite bars. Heavily photographed (and monitored, of course!) shenanigans are destined to create some great reception memories!

Hope we have your mouth watering and tummies growling! Our top five are great ideas but most definitely not the only "bar" ideas that we love! Feel free to share or comment with your favorite ideas! We'd love to hear from you! :)

TREND | MARRIED FOR BREAKFAST

In the words of Leslie Knope, “Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?”

One of the trends we’ve been seeing and loving lately and is breakfast food at weddings. Especially since holding your wedding in the earlier hours can save you money! Plus, there is just something so charming and comforting about a hearty breakfast between friends and family. See some of our favorite breakfast-inspired wedding menus below!

Why, yes. I would love a slice of pancake cake! Put a stack of flap jacks on a cake stand, decorate with fruit and you have a gorgeous dessert!

I’ve been personally trying to figure out how to incorporate this DIY Donut Display into my regular life but, alas, I have no reason to showcase dozens of delicious donuts for my regular morning routine. At an AM wedding though? I’m all over that!

I love the idea of giving guests a choice of pancakes or waffles. I could even see teams starting to form (and maybe even a hashtag? #breakfastbattles). Plus, the berry baskets full of fruit offer an easy way for guests to customize their plates.

This display is one of my favorites, and it’s not just because Ms. Savannah is a really amazing friend of mine. Her wedding had lots of breakfast themed elements including catering straight off the Whataburger breakfast menu! She even DIY’d those coffee pot candy jars! The girl has skills.

What do you think of the breakfast wedding trend?  We think it’s A+ all around!
