Today we present wedding catering trends: 4 food bar types you need to try.
You have a number of options for how you serve food and beverages to your wedding guests.
In addition to the standard sit-down wedding reception catering option, a hot wedding trend is interactive food and beverage stationswhere your wedding guests can customize their food, desserts and drinks. In this type of setting, you can have a chef, bartender or sommelier on hand to interact and explain the origins of a dish, dessert, wine or other beverage to your wedding guests.
Another growing trend for how you serve your wedding food is the wedding food station or wedding food bar. Wedding food bars are an attractive change of pace from the traditional sit-down style wedding reception. Its a popular way to let your wedding guests serve themselves while deciding on their own when and what they want to eat.
There are many food trends for weddings now, and you can actually serve almost anything, from burgers to exotic Brazilian cuisine, everything is up to you, your location and wedding style. I’d like to share some fresh catering trends that will not only feed your guests the best way possible but also will save your money.
1. Donut Bar
This is one of the hottest trends now because everybody loves donuts, they are very affordable and can substitute any other desserts: cake pops, cupcakes and even your wedding cake. Besides, every guest will be able to choose what he or she likes most of all and feel cozy and comfy with that. Decorate and organize your bar so that it matched your wedding theme and style: glitter and blooms for a glam wedding, crates and baskets for a rustic wedding, or just go for hanging donuts on hooks – it’s a very popular idea! You can also use this idea for a bridal or a baby shower, it’s always actual.
