4 Ideas for Catering Summer Weddings, ,

Summer is the time to take advantage of the sunny weather and vacation vibes for your wedding. Let that fun ambiance translate to your catering choices as well. Here are some menu ideas perfect for your summer wedding.

4 Catering Themes for a Summer Wedding

1. Barbecue

A barbecue offers quintessential summer flavors. Order barbecue teriyaki beef and fried chicken for a finger food-friendly feast. Don’t forget the veggie kabobs for your vegetarian guests. Get creative by including tropical fruits like pineapple alongside more traditional grilling vegetables.

2. Hawaiian

If you’re getting married in a tropical location or just want to celebrate the warmth of the islands, serve up a Hawaiian themed menu. Alongside the popular kalua pig and poke, introduce your guests to lesser known dishes like squid luau and pipikaula. 

3. International Foods

cateringCrafting your catering menu with an international theme can be a fun way to honor your heritage or celebrate your upcoming honeymoon destination. For example, Japanese cuisine lends itself well to wedding fare with possibilities for both individual, miniature salads or sushi along with easy-to-serve buffet foods like noodle dishes, stir-fries, and tempura.

4. Appetizer Assortment

For smaller events or early afternoon weddings that don’t require a full meal, offer an assortment of appetizers with cocktails. You might include salads, shrimp or seafood cocktails, wings, and finger sandwiches. Paired with chilled designer cocktails, appetizers will provide the small bites to satiate on a hot summer’s day.
