26 Delicious Wedding Ideas for Couples Crazy About Pizza
Sure, filet mignon and roasted chicken sound like great reception menu options, but, if we're being honest, that's not what everyone's craving. Traditional wedding menu items are classics for a reason, but there's something to be said for serving comfort food at the reception. After all, there's no rule that says you can't turn to a fan-favorite meal to feed your hungry guests. As a reception meal, cocktail-hour bite, or late-night after-party snack, pizza may just be the answer to your guests' prayers. Concerned about making pizza wedding-worthy? Don't be—we've rounded up plenty of elevated pizza ideas for your big day.
For casual weddings, serving pizza is easy—dish it out by the slice or pie. If you're planning a more formal affair, however, you'll want to get creative with toppings or make your pizza station more experiential (show your guests how it's made up close!). With hundreds of renditions of the classic sauce-cheese-dough combination, celebrating with your food of choice has never been easier. Looking for a simple way to please attendees with this comfort food? Hire a pizza truck, like Classic Crust, seen here, to deliver custom pies straight to your reception.
Don't want to serve such a casual food on your wedding day, but still want to pay homage to your go-to snack? Consider a pizza-inspired décor moment, like a pizza paddle seating chart or drink menu. Whether you honor your love for pizza through a made-to-order late-night snack bar or a sign with a witty quote that references your favorite bite, there are so many tasty (and tasteful!) pizza ideas you can copy at your own event.
