    I really like the idea of using wagons and boats as a wedding drink station, but do you line them with like a tarp or something to protect them from the ice melting or what?

    I recently went to a friends wedding who, instead of having a beverage station and snack area, just used those large drink dispensers that were on a stand as the centerpieces for her tables with a dessert tray underneath with an assortment of cookies and brownies! We all went up for a piece of the wedding cake, mind you, but it was nice that we didn’t have to keep getting up after food and before cake time for a sweet treat!

    I need more beverage station ideas for an indoor building! I really like most of these ideas but I can’t have an outside wedding cause it’s going to be this February (snow, rain, cold, all that fun stuff). Can you help with any other suggestions aside from these? My theme is tiffany blue and burlap! xx
