San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
One of the biggest highlights of a wedding, beyond the bride and groom exchanging their vows, is the food served at the reception. With more couples choosing to showcase their personalities and tastes through their reception meals, it’s no wonder that these exciting trends are catching on. On Monday June 3rd, 2013, CBSNews.com released the top 12 wedding food trends of this wedding season, and Do the Bride a Favor is elaborating on these trends.
1. Brunch Reception
Having brunch served at the reception is not only original but is also a great way to save money. Caterers and vendors may charge less for a mid-morning event and guests can enjoy brunch-themed foods such as omelets or breakfast sandwiches complete with mimosas for toasting.
2. Local and Fresh
Many receptions are featuring local produce and goods instead of the usual fare. Visit local farmers’ markets and farms for ideas on how to incorporate local delicacies into receptions. Contacting the local county extension office can also assist in finding purveyors of local produce.
3. Food Experiences
Another top trend in wedding foods is offering live food experiences. With options such as chefs creating custom salsas with ingredients chosen by the guests, or oysters shucked right at the table, many couples are choosing to include interactive food experiences at their receptions.
4. Food Trucks
Food trucks are a fun way to incorporate some originality into a reception. Having an ice cream truck or another type of food truck at a reception is a fun way to change up typical reception fare. There are food trucks for every type of food including desserts and guests are able to choose the food they want, cutting down on cost and waste.
5. Rustic Favors
Favors are still one of the key ways to showcase a bride and groom’s desired theme. Rustic weddings are still dominating the pages of bridal magazines and incorporating that idea into personalized bridal favors is a wonderful idea. Locally sourced honey in mason jars can be given as favors to guests. Another nice touch is to add tags that state the bride and groom's name such as John and Linda’s wedding 2013.
6. Late Night Snack
Many weddings are offering guests late night treats to keep the party going. From cookies and milk to pizza, a treat late in the reception is quickly becoming a leading trend in wedding food.
Do the Bride a Favor elaborates on the biggest trends in reception food including rustic food favors, a brunch reception, and late night treats for reception guests.
