TORONTO - Many brides and grooms wanting to personalize their wedding reception are opting for interactive beverage and sweet stations where guests can customize their drinks and food.

Stations can also be used to highlight a theme, and having a chef, bartender or sommelier on hand to interact and explain the origins of a dish, drink or wine makes guests feel special, says Chef Paul Brans, creative lead for O&B artisan.
