If you’re planning a wedding, you know how much of an impact the food has on the reception and everything else. It gets expensive to feed all those people! But you don’t have to stick with a plain Jane cake-and-punch reception. There are lots of creative wedding buffet menus that are budget-friendly and will make your reception unique. Take a look and get inspired by DIY wedding ideas for buffets that will please you and your guests.

1. Taco Bar: Adding edible flowers adds an upscale touch to this classic buffet option. While you’re at it, let your guests whip up their own tequila-based cocktail too. (via Brit + Co)

2. Mimosa Bar: Step away from the punch. Juice, fresh fruit, and bubbly are all that are required for the perfect drink buffet to go with your cake. (via Gimme Some Oven)

3. Spiked Milkshake Buffet: Everyone loves ice cream. If you’re planning a summer wedding, consider serving up some boozy milkshakes. Pre-blend them and let them get frosty in jars perfect for sipping. (via Brit + Co)
