Modern weddings are more about celebration and less about the ceremony. Couples are going with a more casual day and concentrating on people enjoying themselves. Casual bridesmaid dresses are trending. But for avid foodies, weddings may mean a host of delicacies mentioned on the menu. Here, in this article, we are providing you with a few tips on fun ways to feed your food-loving guests. Below are some ideas that will let you have fun and unique menus.
Special Cocktail Hour
More attention is being paid to the cocktail hour. At early afternoon weddings, they are combining the cocktail hour with a light menu and skipping the evening formal dinner. We want to give you a few ideas for foods that are healthy, fun, and tasty.
Remember when you were a kid going for those fruity popsicles? Well, kick those up a notch. You can have your caterer (or DIY) fruit juice popsicles. Pour champagne into wine glasses just about ⅓ full. Place the fruity and frosty treat in the glass and you have an instant grown-up treat.
Sugar-free Candy Buffett
There are gourmet candies that are produced sugar-free. From the dark chocolate with hazelnuts to favorite hard candy like butterscotch, chocolate mints, caramels, and more. Order your candy from vendors online and have it shipped to you. A colorful table, pretty vases or jars, and ribbons create a beautiful sweets table that anyone will enjoy. You don’t even have to tell them they are sugar-free if you don’t want to. Don’t forget to add a backdrop with some twinkling lights for a festive effect.
Set up a popcorn bar. The smell of fresh popcorn will fill the air. Get creative with baskets staged on a table or set of shelves. Don’t forget the scoops and popcorn bags. Offer gourmet flavors. You can have a vendor air pop the corn and flavor it with any number of spices and flavors.
Cheese Wheel Cake
Set up a three-tiered cake with different flavors of cheese-wheels. Goat cheese, cheddar, and any other favorites. Serve them with crispy bread, berries, olives, and thinly sliced meats.
Raw Food Bar
If your wedding is later in the day or early evening, consider bringing in a raw food chef. Guests will love watching sushi being prepared fresh for them. At the other end of the bar have someone shucking oysters. Add a fresh raw veggie bar with a variety of dips and you have the perfect casual yet chic dinner.
With a little thought and your creativity, you can have an unforgettable and delicious event. Get together with your caterers and see how they can inspire you.
