There is so much more to wedding food than your average chicken and potatoes. Thinking outside the box – you can take regular food or dessert, and turn it into something fresh and new. From classy carnival food to a donut bar, spice up your reception with these fun and creative menu ideas.
If you’re having an outdoor wedding in the middle of summer, there’s nothing more refreshing than ice cold popsicles. Picture the gourmet version, with flavors like lavender and orange crème. Sounds delicious right? Ask your caterer or whoever is providing the food, to imprint you and your partners initials to make them extra special.
To make it a more casual affair, let your guests be the chef. Put together an assortment of delicious finger foods that your guests can get anytime they want throughout the evening. Give your guests the option to customize their food with extras that are easy to grab and go.
Classy Carnival Food
We’re talking about the good stuff – cotton candy, cracker jacks, funnel cakes and anything else you might find at a carnival – all dressed up on a display table. You can even complete the carnival theme with a popcorn bar for a late night snack and a fresh funnel cake cart. Sounds delish!
A Donut Bar
Two words: Yes please! If you’re not the traditional bride and groom, you can still have a “cake cutting” even if you’re slicing through a delicious stack of donuts. You can choose to serve any kind you like, from retro classics like cream and jelly filled or some new flavors like white chocolate and almond.
Dressed-Up Comfort Food
Having comfort food at a wedding has been popular for years now. Currently, it’s all about the presentation and how things look. For example, if your a french fries and burgers kind of girl try wrapping the french fries in monogrammed paper. Or take mini burger sliders and wrap them in napkins with your new last name on it. Either way, comfort food is always a favorite, no matter how its wrapped.
We hope you get inspired by these unique ideas for your wedding or pass on these ideas to a friend for theirs. We’re positive your guests will enjoy them too!
