The invitations are out. The venue is booked. As you make your way through your wedding day checklist there’s one important point that should not be overlooked—food. When it comes to your big day, the food you serve is a deal-breaker. Whether you are having a rustic farm wedding or a 1920s Gatsby-style reception, the food you choose should reflect the theme of your wedding. If you need help bringing your vision to life, then look no further. With many years of catering experience, we at Maison Culinaire have catered weddings in Washington of all shapes and sizes. We will gladly listen to your wedding ideas and offer recommendations on food, drinks and presentation. In the meantime, here are some ideas to get those creative juices flowing:
Whether your wedding reception is indoors or outdoors, food stations are sure to please all your guests. Not only are food stations a current trend, they are an excellent choice because of the all the different options available to your guests. Here are some stations that you might consider for your big day:
Sushi Station: Sushi is more than just delicious. With its array of colors, sushi adds a pop of color to your wedding décor in a subtle, yet elegant way. And because they are bite-sized, your guests will have no problem popping them into their mouths while holding a drink in their other hand.
Soft Pretzel Station: These days, soft pretzels aren’t just something you grab at the ball game. From heart-shaped pretzels to soft pretzel bites, this twisted baked bread is showing up at weddings all over Washington. By offering sweet and savory dips, this is something that guests of all ages will enjoy. What better way to say you’ve tied the knot!
Cheese Station: You can never go wrong with cheese – it’s easy to eat and can elevate the theme of a wedding. When it comes to cheese options, there’s so much more to choose from besides orange cubes. How does goat cheese and apricot crostini sound? Or blue cheese stuffed dates and even baked brie and figs?
After a night of dancing and mingling, your guests are sure to want a quick snack before heading home. Here are a few late-night food ideas:
Hotdog Stand: Nothing satisfies a late-night craving like a hotdog. Keep it traditional with ketchup and mustard or take it to the next level by offering bratwurst and sauerkraut.
Popcorn Machine: It’s an easy snack that will give guests that extra little something they need to make it through the night, and it won’t cost you a fortune. You also have the option of customizing the popcorn bags with your names for an added touch.
