The newest trend for wedding dining is unexpected and fresh. Here are a few of the things you’ll be seeing more of in the future:
•Home-spun and self-selected meals by the couple: If food means something to you, why not make it a key element of the wedding? If he’s Caribbean and you’re Italian, make your menu a fanciful tribute to both. If you’re a foodie, let the selections reflect your epicurean self.
•A focus on heritage and traditional often served family style. Nothing is better than sharing fresh baked rolls made from your grandmother’s recipe, family- favorite salads, and hearty meat trays. This always turns basics foods into ‘wow’ factors!
•The dinner party reception, where the focus is on intimate, laid back socialization. Take the pressure off of having a ‘show,’ and allow your guests to just kick back and get to know each other.
•Small, edible cocktail-hour bites infused with liquor and shooters: Shake up the traditional ‘passed appetizers’ by offering a little zest in each one. Consider doing cocktail flights (think flights of wine but only with signature cocktail drinks instead) along with your sassy beginnings.
•Food Trucks: Who doesn’t love the Ice Cream Man? Have ice cream, hot dogs, or tacos served from a food truck that can be stationed anywhere outside at your event. It’s a great way to liven up any party!
