The culinary world is as ever-changing as the wedding industry. This means new trends enter the scene all the time. To help get your forks spinning and your chef hat on straight, we’ve got 7 food and drink trends we’re loving right now:
1. FOOD TRUCKS
For outdoor weddings or venues without catering kitchens, food trucks are the way to go. In addition to being convenient, they are photogenic and great conversation-starters!
2. TASTY FAVORS
To keep your guests satisfied even after last call, craft special “doggy bag” snacks to grab on the way out. Your guests will be thankful for this parting gift!
3. DESSERT BAR
Cake is a classic, but dessert buffets are having their moment. Guests can enjoy a variety of flavors and styles. You even can incorporate sentimentality with Grandma’s famous chocolate pie recipe.
4. CASUAL FARE
If a traditional steak and vegetable medley meal doesn’t feel right, don’t shy away from offering your favorite casual fare. French fries, pizza and sliders are crowd-pleasers no matter the occasion.
5. CUSTOM NAPKINS
In addition to fantastic food and drink, weddings can really stand out in the details. Customized napkins are great little accents to go alongside cocktail hour sips and carefully crafted dishes.
6. CHAMPAGNE TOWERS
Champagne towers are a nod to the roaring ‘20s and an age of opulence and glamour. Besides being a great photo opportunity, pouring champagne together tests newlywed teamwork and makes for some good laughs!
7. CUSTOM BOTTLES
Create an heirloom with a custom-designed label or hand-painted champagne bottle. Whether popped open on the wedding day or saved for an anniversary, this beautiful piece of art will last a lifetime.
