3 Wedding Catering Trends to Consider for Your Big Day, Woods Bay-Rollins, Montana

Weddings involve many decisions based on budget and preferences. Once you’ve secured the event space and determined the theme of your decor, it’s time to consider catering. Wedding catering services vary greatly in their flavor profiles, price ranges, and menu options. If you’re unsure of where to start for planning the food for your wedding day, begin with some of the most popular catering trends available today. 

3 Popular Catering Trends for Your Wedding 

1. Family-Style Serving 

Standing in line at a buffet is slowly moving out; instead, family-style serving has become a popular choice as it encourages guests to share, pass, and make memories with one another. If you are planning a relaxed reception, family-style catering will match your style perfectly. No matter if you’re serving pasta, meat, or fish, you can trust that this interactive approach will help your guests feel right at home.

2. Lighter Fare

cateringIn the past, wedding reception food often featured deep-fried bites and heavy entrees. Today, modern couples are trying a fresher fare, often pulling from local markets and artisans to create a flavor profile unique to the place they tied the knot. Ask your caterer about local delicacies and ingredients that they can incorporate. Not only will your guests love the refreshing take on wedding food, but it gives them a chance to learn a bit more about the region and the culinary beauty it has to offer. 

3. Custom Drinks

No wedding is complete without a few tasty cocktails—or mocktails—to keep the party going. If you’re not partial to the idea of an open bar, you may prefer to offer your guests a list of pre-designed drinks. Work with your catering company to customize drink options. You can offer creative twists on old classics or serve up a refined version of your soon-to-be-spouse’s favorite sip. Custom drinks are a fantastic way to showcase your personality and complement the menu you chose.
