Caterers are receiving new requests from brides and grooms when it comes to the food served at this season’s weddings. From breakfast favorites to finger-licking barbecue, couples are craving trendy new options for their wedding day spread. (http://www.cbsnews.com/2300-207_162-10016735.html).
The days of asking wedding goers to choose between chicken or fish is becoming a thing of the past. As weddings get more and more personalized, couples want their choice of food to be original as well.
“When it comes to a wedding’s food, not all couples want to go the traditional route and serve fancy plated dinners or Polish-style buffets,” said Brett Reynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. “The type of food served at a wedding can greatly add to a wedding’s theme or show off a couple’s personality so many brides and grooms are looking to add creativity to the meal.”
With daytime weddings becoming a popular choice for couples looking to save money, brunch is being served in lieu of dinner. Food choices range from omelet and waffle stations to fresh fruit and pancake bars, while mimosas and bloody marys serve as the optimal brunch cocktails.
Food trucks have also become a popular choice for 2013 weddings. These meals on wheels allow brides and grooms the opportunity to offer fun food to guests like ice cream and funnel cakes, which traditional caterers may not be able to provide. Food trucks can usually come to any location and make great additions to outdoor weddings. And as more couples flock towards the idea of rustic weddings, cookout-style foods are becoming a trendy choice as well. From burgers and fries to corn on the cob and pulled pork sandwiches, this type of fare is being served family style at burlap-decorated weddings held in barns or under the stars.
Another popular food trend takes place before guests are sent home. Brides and grooms are saying their farewells by serving late night snacks. Slices of pizza, tacos, hot dogs, milk and cookies or even ice cream sundaes are passed around to give family and friends a treat to end the night.
While food may not be the focus of a wedding, couples are realizing it is one more way they can individualize their big day. Not only will unique options satisfy guests’ growling stomachs, it’ll also leave a lasting impression on their minds and their taste buds.
