Unusual Wedding Food IdeasYour wedding is one of the most special, memorable days of yours and your partner’s life. Not only will you remember and cherish this day, but those in attendance will also remember the day and want to enjoy the full experience of the wedding ceremony and reception. The planning of such a spectacular event involves many fine details; among these details are the choices of wedding food you will serve guests at your reception.
The food served at your reception can leave the guests full, satisfied, and in complete bliss of the entire day, or if unsatisfactory, guests could leave the wedding ceremony and reception feeling hungry and as if something was lacking. Deciding what food to serve can be a difficult decision to make, but there are several popular choices that may help make your choice easier. One way to make a reception more personal is by serving personal dishes that are you and your partner’s favorite or perhaps dishes that are from your family heritage, such as Mexican or Chinese food. This does offer guests something other than ordinary finger foods, but can also be a risky choice for picky eaters in attendance.
Having several food stations rather than a formal sit down meal allows guest the pleasure of eating whenever they feel like it and also the allowance of fixing their meal to meet their taste. Baked potato bars with a selection of toppings such as sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, etc., is a neutral, safe choice that is likely to please most taste buds. Other station options are taco, Japanese, or soup and salad station. You know your guests best; keep in mind of how cultured they liked to eat.
Dependent on what time your ceremony and reception of planned for will obviously affect the choice wedding food. For breakfast consider an omelet, pancake, or waffle bar with a variety of toppings and ingredients, fresh fruit, bacon or sausage, and breakfast casseroles. Wedding foods for a lunchtime reception or hors d’oeuvres reception are pretty similar. For these receptions consider serving fresh fruit, vegetable and cheese platters, sausage balls, chicken wings, Swedish meatballs, mini quiches, skewed meats, or shrimp cocktail. Wedding food for dinner receptions could include heavier items such as chicken, steak, beef tenderloin, fresh fruit, grilled fish, rolls, green beans, or mushrooms.
