Catering a Wedding in 2020
Weddings have taken a far turn from conventionality. And that’s something to be excited about! No longer are there “rules” to planning a wedding, and couples are being more and more creative every season. As for fall, there are some incredibly-smart and tasteful food trends for weddings that have already been a huge hit within the catering industry.
Cocktail hour should always be accompanied by some good appetizer foods. The problem is, no one wants to set their drink down to eat with a fork and knife. That’s what the reception dinner is for, after all. So miniature bites have been a huge hit for weddings. These hors d’oeuvres are perfectly bite-sized, making them enjoyable and convenient. They can be made to me as simple or as complex as you like, ranging from delicacies and shellfish, to small bites like sausages, artichoke hearts, pot stickers, salmon rolls, cheeseballs, quiches, crostinis, and more. Miniature bites are popular and tasty appetizers for cocktail hour.
Main Course Comfort
Trending right now is comfort food for weddings! Mini hot dogs, cheeseburger sliders, fried chicken, chicken and waffles, breakfast spreads, casseroles, and even tacos are becoming a favored menu selection for 2020 weddings. Although these foods seem non-traditional and ordinary, they can be made into elegant dishes by using gourmet ingredients and condiments.
Traditional desserts are a menu item of the past. Couples have enjoyed a wide array of unique and delicious desserts that work for guests of all ages. For example, traditional tiered wedding cakes are being replaced more and more with fun cupcake towers, or massive displays of cookies, brownies, donuts, and even candy bars! In fact, actual candy “bars” have become very popular (tables filled with jars and displays of various confectioneries), allowing guests to make themselves a to-go bag of candy as a gift!
Another popular menu item has been milkshakes. These are great because they can be made on the fly, in endless flavors, and in custom sizes. And the best part is, they can go with guests on the dance floor! Parfaits have also been popular because they can be customized to match wedding themes and colors, and can be healthy too!
