Catering Food Ideas For Wedding
One of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding is selecting the food for your reception. There are many catering food ideas for wedding, so deciding what to serve can be daunting. You and your partner can write down all your wedding food ideas.
Make a list of all your favorite foods to celebrate your big day. Compare the list with your partner and look for common ones. Look for a common theme. Do the foods you chose fall under a finger food category or garnished on a plate? You can rank your chosen menu items from must-have to optional before researching the vendors. Also, find a caterer that best suits your needs.
Every bride will like her reception to be memorable and unique, but creating original food ideas can be difficult. We will discuss five wedding food ideas for a truly great reception.
Festival style catering
Outdoor live music and camping facilities on site are the highlights of festival style weddings. You can hire a variety of catering vans to serve steak sandwiches, gourmet burgers, falafels, and baked potatoes. If there is a local delicacy in your area, see if you can hire a catering van to serve that item. An ice cream van is an awesome addition for guests with a sweet tooth.
If you want to have a sit down meal for your wedding reception, try to serve food in the centre of the tables so that guests can interact with each other. Sweet, savoury fondues, tapas and a range of Mexican dishes such as fajitas work well in these conditions. You can also offer mini appetiser platters or desserts so that guests can help themselves.
Food stations trends are ever evolving even though they have been a popular choice for some time now. Three emerging trends are hummus bars with a section of delicious dips, Japanese style Tepanyaki bars, where guests select their raw ingredients and then watch them being cooked and canapT bars, where a chef makes canapes to order and entertains your guests at the same time .
Dessert only catering
If you want to make an impact with your wedding reception food but have a limited catering budget, pick a single course and spend your entire budget. A dessert only meal is a popular choice because most people have a favorite dessert. You can create a lavish display with different types of cake, mousse, pudding, and hire an ice cream bar to complement it. You can include some less sugary options such as a carrot cake, plenty of fruit or a cheese board for those without a sweet tooth.
A wedding brunch
If you want to break with tradition and hold your reception before you say ‘I do’ or have an early morning ceremony you can serve brunch. Brunch is an informal meal associated with family and celebration. It is cheaper than serving dinner as you need to pay for only one course. You can serve a variety of hot food including eggs, bacon, French toast, pancakes, seasonal fresh fruit with yogurt, cold delicacies such as croissants and doughnuts.
