Google+ Southern Spotting: Pickle Bar - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

We’ve seen our share of delicious food bars at weddings. At first, they’re a fun surprise. Then, they become a welcome part of weddings everywhere. (Hello biscuit bars and bourbon bars of the South!) When we first saw the images from Andi Mans of Lola + Stephen’s wedding, we stopped in our tracks. A pickle bar is definitely something we haven’t seen before, but now we’re smitten with the fun details and whimsical twist!

From the groom:

Who doesn’t love Pickles? When it came to our Southern vintage wedding with a twist, we knew we just had to have a Pickle Bar! What’s more refreshing on a hot summer day then biting into a cool, juicy, full-sour pickle? Our guests loved them! When I was little, my father took me on a trip to the Big Apple, where I fell in love with the cucumber’s cranky cousin, the pickle. Ever since then, I couldn’t get enough of them. I eat them with everything, including ice cream! When it came to our wedding, my soon-to-be wife, Lola knew to surprise me with a pickle bar made up of our favorite crunchy sticks from around the U.S.

We featured pickles from The Stage Deli in New York with their Full-Sour Power Pickles, Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market Pickles from Florida, and finally, our favorite, Britt’s Pickles from Seattle. They are 100% organic and come in flavors such as Pepper and Ginger and Hot and Sour!

Should you have a Pickle Bar? Darn tootin! My only advice is that you can never have too many — within an hour, our guests had gobbled up every last crunchy cuc.

What do y’all think of the pickle bar? Would you have one at your wedding?
