Three Current Wedding Feast Trends You Should Know About

Posted on: 28 December 2019

If you're planning to meet the man or woman of your dreams at the altar this year and join your hands in marriage, you're probably beginning the process of ironing out the details of your wedding reception. You'll probably have to book a venue, hire a band, decide on decorations, and find a catering company to prepare and serve a feast fit for a king and queen as you celebrate your union with friends and family at the reception.

Coming up with a menu for a wedding banquet sometimes feels overwhelming, especially if you've got a highly diverse guest list. The main thing to keep in mind, however, is that it's your celebration and that the food and beverages should reflect your shared preferences as a couple. Following are just three current wedding feast trends designed to provide you with inspiration. 

Regional Cuisine

Many modern brides and grooms are opting for regional cuisine at their wedding reception feasts. For instance, those who live in the Pacific Northwest may decide on a celebratory meal comprised of salmon and other coastal seafood, while their counterparts from the American South might decide to treat themselves and their wedding reception guests to down-home barbecue and Key lime pie. 

Plant-Based Banquets

Traditional wedding banquets followed a classic pattern of a meat dish taking center stage as the main entree with salads and side dishes acting as satellites, with a slice of wedding cake serving as the grand finale. An increasing number of people are opting for plant-based diets these days, and that trend has been showing up on wedding reception banquet tables.

Today's vegetarian or vegan wedding feasts are also less likely to be centered around a specific main dish than their counterparts of the past. Further emphasis is put on fresh, organic, and locally produced products. 

Family Favorites 

After more than a decade of wedding feasts inspired by haute cuisine, old family recipes and traditions are making a comeback. The ultimate comfort foods, these are sometimes prepared by family members themselves, but most of the time, the recipes are provided to the wedding caterers for them to expertly replicate. In an elegant juxtaposition that somehow makes perfect sense, this often rustic, old-school home cooking tastes even better when served on formal wedding china.

Your local wedding catering services can provide you with more tips and tricks designed to create a delicious and memorable wedding feast.

I started increasing my intake of fruits and veggies, and I even studied different cooking methods to find ways to enjoy the kinds of foods I liked to eat without all of the added calories.
