While many grooms-to-be are happy to let their fiancés handle much of the wedding planning process, there is one choice that couples often find fun to make together, and that is choosing what food to serve at the wedding. Few choices will have a bigger impact on your guests than the menu you create, after all. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to sample some great food? So, whether you decide to go with a buffet-style meal, a more formal plated dinner, or even a food truck, just remember, it’s hard to go wrong when you choose food that tastes great!
Think About Your Favorite Foods
One of the best ways to decide what to serve your wedding guests is simply by looking at your favorite meals to share, together. Choosing to serve food the two of you love is a great way to ensure your guests will enjoy the wedding menu, as well.
This could mean serving up a fajita buffet from your favorite Mexican restaurant, or hiring a local caterer to create gorgeous plated versions of your best-loved Italian dishes. Whatever you choose, just make sure you opt for something flavorful and filling, especially if you plan on hosting a long reception.
Don’t Worry About Wedding Traditions!
When it comes to wedding planning, we think it’s incredibly beneficial to realize that wedding traditions aren’t nearly as important as choosing things that make sense for you. For instance, chicken, beef or fish are still considered traditional meal choices, but that doesn’t mean they are the only – or even the right – options for you.
Don’t worry so much about what is standard, or fancy. Instead focus on choosing flavors you love, and that suit the timeframe of your wedding. For instance, having an early ceremony? Why not host a breakfast or brunch-themed meal? Planning a late night dance party of a reception? Consider hiring food trucks to stay on site, until the party ends!
