Your wedding dress is not the only thing that can help make your wedding memorable. The venue can make a permanent impression on the brains of the attendees as well as the food that is served. The food is by far the best way to have your wedding talked about for the rest of the year. Sometimes what is captivating is not exactly the food itself but the presentation but all in all when it comes to catering there are a number of reasons it can make your wedding memorable.
When it comes to taste and appearance two things that can be described as being trendy these days are edible vessels and savory cupcakes. If you can serve an item in an edible spoon or bowl that is a great idea for this season. This allows your guests to literally eat everything that is on your plate. And most of all this is a very creative concept. The next item is a savory cupcake; this can be served with cocktails or could even be served as a light entrée. You could do some mashed potato icing for it to pay homage to the regular cupcake and top it with rosemary or a mix of tomato and basil bits along with some grated cheese.
As we spoke about cocktails this is also one of the trends of catering for weddings this season. This means that you will be serving food but in a lesser amount than usual and will be serving more cocktails instead. Caterers provide an open bar and ample bartenders to meet the needs of the guests. There can also be tables set with small bites. This trend is focused on more dancing mingling and chatting than a regular reception with tables for sitting and eating.
For those who want to be as environmentally friendly as possible there is a trend for that as well. Couples choose foods that are from organic sources and try to have caterers who use local produce as much as possible. Persons are even asking for edible centerpieces to be used so that there isn’t too much waste on the décor items and money to purchase or rent them. One such edible centerpiece could be a cupcake tower.
Another trend now is the use of bold flavors such as using Thai food for an entrée or including a personal favorite food item somewhere in the meal such as their favorite cookies for desert instead of the traditional cake. They can eve choose to have foods from their background so a Mexican couple may opt to have burritos or tacos while a West Indian couple may opt for rice and beans or a curry etc.
These are just some of the common trends presently being seen in wedding catering but you can always start your own trend by creating a wedding reception ceremony that is totally and completely you and your spouse. This may be different but if it is all you then that is fine as it is your day after all.
