Stickin’ to the basics never looked or tasted so good
Forget about the filet mignon, lemon herb-crusted salmon, or amaretto chicken. Today we’re taking you back to the basics and all the while saving you money. Which never hurts, right? Wedding food trends have been changing in recent years and luckily for you it’s getting more creative and less expensive. What a great combo!
These days, many couples are opting out of the typical “one-meat-and-two-sides” approach to dinner, and getting a little more inventive in their approach to wedding cuisine. We have seen wedding food evolve from the classic plated meal to a reception filled with innovative food stations and other unique cuisines options.
Here is just a few of these new trends we have spotted:
Another great trend that is spreading quickly is food stations. Although these tend to be much more informal than a sit down dinner, food stations offer your guests variety, ensuring everyone gets exactly what they want. They also help to create a relaxed and conversational atmosphere, where guests can easily mingle without having to sit at the same table all night. The best part about them? You can personalize your wedding by creating a food station that says something about you and your spouse. If one of you loves waffle, then feature a waffle station and include all the different toppings. — You can have anything from whipped cream to strawberries and bananas. If you love sushi why not create a sushi bar for your guests to grab their favorite?
As wedding receptions are beginning to run later and later into the night, bite-sized late night wedding snacks are quickly becoming one of the most popular trends in wedding food. After hours upon hours of dancing, socializing and partying, your guests will have, no doubtedly, worked up an appetite. And what better to fill that hunger than by passing out fun and casual little mini-tized bites of their favorite comfort foods. From pancakes on a stick to espresso shots topped with mini doughnuts, these treats are the perfect way to end the night. You can bet that these miniature pleasures will not only subdue your guests’ appetite, but are sure to be a huge hit!
Classic Dessert Bar
S’mores, ice cream, popcorn… you name it. Having interactive stations such as these various bars is another great way to get your guests out of their chairs and participating in the festivities. Again, this is another great way to personalize your wedding. Maybe you and your hubby are big campers (S’mores Bar) or you really love caramel apples (caramel apple station), why not invite your guests to share in one of your favorite past times?
