This Year’s Wedding Food Trends
This year’s wedding food trends seem to change from year to year. Although this may be true, here are some ideas for a unique food presentation at your wedding. From the cake to hors d’oeuvres to dinner, you can infuse a bit of personality into the food you’ll be sharing with your guests.
A Moveable Feast
Call it hipster or just plain cool food trucks are passing multi-course sit-down meals and being replaced with more interactive options. Set up stations that feature your favorite eats, like a raw bar with a waiter, live shucking oysters or wine and cheese pairing with an on-site sommelier. If you are not quite ready to ditch the seated meal host a cool cocktail hour incorporating one of this year’s wedding food trends.
Fun Food Presentations
Food trends are yummy and fun. Menus are being carefully curated with favorite eats and local specialties favorites of the bride and groom. Think deep-dish pizza for a Chicago after-party or Seafood platters for a Florida beach wedding. The presentation is almost upstaging the food with elaborate displays that are sure to be the talk of any reception. Self-serving bars, hanging acrylic shelves piled high with cheese and charcuteries, are instant hits. Set up a donut wall with gourmet selections or treat your guest to a full-service sundae bar. These interactive stations will give your family and friends a great treat and twist on the traditional.
Imagine a cake not quite frosted, not quite bare either, the almost – the naked cake is a perfect blend of two styles, and ideal for a less formal celebration. These confections are usually lightly iced in buttercream and topped with fresh flowers or in-season fruit that hint at the floor of the filling of the cake. Although this year’s wedding trends are fun there is always room to create your own trends.
