Catering Edition: The Food Bride

Every bride has one special element that she feels should be the star of her wedding day. There are brides that go all out on the dress, brides that spend majority on flowers, and then there are the food brides. These brides are looking for the best and most delicious options to make a savory impact on their guests. There are many options when it comes to catering for the big day. We've broken it down into a few categories for our lovely readers.

Buffet Style

  • This option allows guests to plate their own meal. This option usually offers comfort foods and features two to three protein options for the guests to choose from accompanied by delicious sides. This allows for fast service and guests to enjoy at their own leisure. 
  • Hot and cold hor d'oeuvres can also be featured in a buffet style. This option is usually served for a late evening or mid afternoon and should include two to three bite food items such as sliders or shrimp cocktails. The hor d'oeurves option works best when you have a large guest list and not enough seating for everyone. Its important to remember to chose items that do not require a knife so that your guests can easily eat while standing up, while at a bistro table if needed.
Breakfast Brunch
  • This option is for the early morning bride whose looking to wow her guests with something a little different. Brunch is a great idea for a smaller and more intimate wedding affair and allows your caterer to be creative with fun new signature ideas for breakfast and/or lunch ideas. If you choose this fun idea keep in mind you will want to serve your guests bewteen the 9:30- 11:30 A.M.  
Sweet Treats Only
  • This is the perfect option for the ultimate budget bride. Schedule your ceremony between one and three in the afternoon  and have a simple "sweet treat" reception. This allows for a wide variety of personalization and beautiful display of the bride and grooms favorite items such as: cupcakes, truffles, cheesecake bites, and maybe even grandmas famous cookies. The options are endless and your guests will appreciate this fun simple idea that doesn't tie up their entire evening.
