Who doesn’t love a raw bar?!  And what could be more perfect for your cocktail hour at a destination wedding than fresh seafood when saying I do on the ocean.  If you’re hosting a beach wedding, a destination I do in Maine, or anywhere that serves up fresh fare from the sea, then consider these creative ideas to make your raw bar a point of conversation before your guests go to dinner.  From individual plates or trios of the product to a boat as the ice bucket, don’t be afraid to dress the look up or down to fit your event and have fun with it!
