Unique wedding food ideas that will leave your guests satisfied

 

We all know planning a wedding can take months and even years. As a bride, you must choose:  the perfect dress, bridesmaids, maid of honor, colors, decorations, cake, wedding food and the list can go on and on. At the end of the day, what are your guests going to remember most about your wedding? A recent poll shows that guests actually enjoy the reception more than the wedding ceremony. The wedding ceremony is all about the bride and groom and the reception is all about your guests! With that said if you want to make sure your guests talk about your wedding reception for years to come, consider using some of these wedding food trends.

 

Make your wedding food exciting by adding some twists

 

We all love and live for food these days. In fact, I’m getting hungry just talking about it! It’s your wedding day and your guests are looking forward to one thing, food! Let’s face it; as soon as they enter the reception hall, the only thing they are thinking about is filling their empty bellies. Take your pick of beef, fish or chicken.  Does that sound exciting? Unfortunately, almost every wedding seems to have the same plate, which consists of a protein paired with some form of potatoes and vegetables. I can’t tell you how many times I went to In-N-Out for a cheeseburger after a wedding because I was not satisfied. I understand food is expensive and clearly not everyone can afford a royal wedding reception; however, make your guests happy by adding some twists in traditional wedding food.

 

Wedding food trends for 2012

 

 

Creating the perfect unique wedding reception following the wedding ceremony can be tough. Today, we will help you come up with unique ideas for tastier food your guests will enjoy.  First, what better way to serve appetizers than with a fondue station? With this option, your guests can dip bread and vegetables in different types of cheese sauces. For those who do not like cheese, consider having a sushi station. If you don’t like sushi than create a french fry bar with an abundance of different dipping sauces! For the main course, give your guests a different experience by giving each table a chopping board with already carved meat such as steak, chicken, lamb or pork.

 

 

Not only that allow your guests to choose their wedding food sides by placing a variety of side options in bowls around the table such as, macaroni and cheese, shrimp cocktail, salad, garlic bread, or pizza bites.  In addition to feeding your guests, the food bowls are actually a conversation starter. Last but not least, dessert! Instead of having one big cake, have individual cakes as your centerpiece on every guest table, each a different flavor. This way your guests can mingle and munch! If you’re like me and hate cake, then kill the cake and opt for cupcakes or an ice cream bar for your wedding food dessert! I know you want to play it safe by having chicken, beef or fish, but make your entrees a little more interesting and it will be a little more special!
