There are so many ways to celebrate your marriage, with dining being a big part of each gathering. And since you don’t want or need to spend your time preparing the foods, why not consider having these occasions professionally catered?
Here are six different occasions you can celebrate with wedding catering:
- Engagement Shower
If you’ve just gotten engaged, your friends are going to want to throw you an engagement shower, a wonderful opportunity to dress up and give gifts to the bride-to-be and the happy couple. Instead of spending time planning the menu and serving food and drinks, you could be spending time with your guests if you have your engagement party catered.
Professionally presented and served, your guests will rave over the delightful treats and appealing presentation, leaving you to attend to the gift opening!
- Catering Idea: Maison Culinaire can prepare a beautiful tea sandwich and European desserts catering menu presented on tiered serving stands.
- Wedding Cocktail Party
When it’s time to introduce the parents and meet all the wedding party, or gather with friends, throw a catered pre-wedding cocktail party. Your caterer will set up drink bars and food service can be provided as roving, buffet stations, or a seated meal. Go casual with finger foods or step it up as formal as you’d like.
- Catering Idea: Maison Culinaire can create a variety of one-bite hors d’oeuvres that can be served on trays to your guests as they mingle and socialize.
- Wedding Rehearsal Dinner
The night before your wedding is the time when all the principals come together to celebrate, but restaurants often have a difficult time providing meals for a large group in a timely manner. Take the pressure off, and guarantee your guests a fun and relaxing experience, by ensuring a delicious and flawless dinner service with professional catering
- Catering Idea: Maison Culinaire can design a menu to match your wedding theme, from exquisite International cuisine to a down-home barbeque.
- Wedding Reception
No matter how big or small, how formal or intimate, your wedding reception needs to go off without a hitch. Choose a wedding caterer who can provide the food, drinks and dinner service for your wedding, and one who can help you choose and coordinate all the elements of a dazzling wedding reception. There are many decisions to be made, among them the flowers, decorations, props, entertainment, music, dance floors, and rentals of tables, chairs, china and flatware. Maison Culinaire can help with everything…right down to the wedding cake itself.

- Next-Day Wedding Brunch
Extend the wedding weekend with a catered brunch the day after the ceremony. Out-of-town guests, family members and friends will enjoy gathering together one last time before heading in their separate directions. A catered brunch will provide them with a delicious memory of your special wedding celebration.
- Catering Idea: Maison Culinaire can combine the best of both breakfast and lunch with a delicious and satisfying menu.

If you had a small wedding or elopement, you may wish to throw a celebration party for your friends and family after the fact. This is your opportunity to include everyone who wants to celebrate along with you.
