Finding creative food ideas for your summer wedding is the perfect way to make it memorable. Below are five ideas that work especially well in the summer months and that you may enjoy.
Consider Fruity “Cronuts”
Cronuts are a combination of donuts and croissants that have taken the wedding catering world by storm. A great airy, flaky, and tasty treat, cronuts are something that your guests will talk about for years to come. Their light airiness makes them perfect for the summer months and topping them with a fruity spread of something like strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries can make them something truly spectacular.
Forget The Fork
A creative food idea for your wedding can include the imagery of BBQ with a move away from using utensils. For example, meals that do not require a fork can add fantastic variation to your entrée. Things like meatballs served on toothpicks or other meats and vegetables are a great way to add some spice and variety to your food selection.
Summer weddings can be characterized by longer days and heat. The last thing you want to do is add heavy food. Consider taking a popular meal and make it bite sized. For example, spaghetti and meatballs can be arranged into a single bight sized treat and served as such. Other heavy foods can be served in smaller amounts, allowing guest to commit to less when they take food.
A New Take On Comfort
A wedding is as much about you as your guests. However, when catering to so many different people, it is important to remember your own needs and desires, especially when it comes to food. Consider what food is your comfort food and role with it. Taking the “go mini” approach above, you can turn your favourite food into a bite-sized experience that your guests will enjoy.
The summer months bring to mind a lot of different interactive food opportunities. From scooping your own ice cream from an ice cream cart to designing your own snow cone and flavouring it yourself, you can make a refreshing and cool part of your food/drink selection a fun experience for adults and kids alike. You can even take this to the next level by providing materials for people to design their own specialty drinks. As a final consideration, you may want to combine ideas. Adult snow cones anyone?
