Check out these 25 refreshing spring wedding food and drink ideas; from Weddingomania
When it comes to picking the perfect wedding menu, seasonality is key. If we take spring weddings, it’s all about fresh fruits, veggies, herbs and stuff like that – some hearty meals are also welcome but don’t go too far. Besides, healthy menus are a big trend now and you can modernize traditional dishes making them light and giving them a more stylish and chic look. Let’s take a look at some ideas!
For spring appetizers and entrees, freshness is key and herbs are in. Use them not just for garnish, but to really bring flavors forth in foods. Try serving up dishes like chopped romaine and frisee salad, which is topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, grapefruit segments, fresh tarragon, and green dressing, or a dish that incorporates sugar snap peas with Fresno chilies, and fresh mint. There are many types of salads with various flavors – choose your favorite ones to serve!
Give guests a light and summery feel amongst all the warmer heartier dishes that are served from fall through spring. Beyond the use of fresh herbs in braising liquids and sauces, just taking them right from the garden to the plate adds an amazing fresh feel to dishes. Think of offering various kinds of fish, seafood or meat with very seasonal garnishes: prefer some fresh spring veggies – cooked or not, they are right what you need.
Dessert And Signature Drinks
And what about dessert? In keeping with a light and airy menu, you’ll want to make sure your dessert isn’t too decadent or heavy. Consider serving up floral or citrus-flavored macarons, or fresh tarts and cakes made with lemon, strawberry, or rhubarb. Donuts are in trend but skip that heavy glazing and go for frozen yogurt instead. For spring-approved signature drinks, think about using seasonal ingredients that will make your beverage unique. You might also consider garnishing your drinks with edible flowers, like roses or pansies for a sweet spring vibe.
