Of course, there are many things to consider in order to bring the wedding day together with style and sometimes, it pays to consider the details carefully.
The bulk of the wedding is going to be all about the bride and groom but the wedding reception is where the guests come in. Sure, the spotlight is still going to be on the happy couple but the reception gives everyone the opportunity to get up and dance, visit with family and friends and to enjoy some great food. That is why it pays to consider the food carefully and there are some unique wedding catering ideas that are sure to tie things together in the best way possible. Here are a few that will make the wedding reception one to remember.
Breakfast for Dinner – Most people tend to separate breakfast food from the regular menu and set it aside for the morning meal. Every once in a while, however, they step outside of the lines and enjoy some of that food for the evening meal. Most of the time, they wonder why they don’t do it more often. Having a gourmet breakfast provided at the wedding reception is sure to be a hit. Some specific ideas for foods include a waffle bar and a gourmet omelet station.
Finger Foods – When it comes to wedding food, the hors-d’oeuvres are often a huge success. Most people just can’t get enough and it always seems as if the hors-d’oeuvres don’t last nearly long enough. The dinner portion of the reception provides the perfect opportunity to extend the hors-d’oeuvres hour and it can even make up the bulk of the meal. With so many different things to try, it is sure to fill a plate.
Raw Options – Most reception plates are going to be some type of meat, potatoes and a side of vegetables. Why not also include an option for those who want to try some raw food recipes. These types of recipes are always interesting and when they are made properly, they are quite delicious as well. The raw option could make up an entire plate or it could be offered as a portion for those who just want to experiment.
Up the Dessert – Although the cutting of the cake often signifies an opportunity to enjoy a sweet treat, there is also an opportunity to add some special dessert options to the catered portion of the meal as well. Adding something sweet will end the meal with a great taste. Don’t forget the coffee.
These are just a few unique wedding catering ideas. When they are put in the hands of a skilled crew, they will make an impression that will last for years.
