Warming Starters

Nothing beats a hearty soup – even at a wedding. Prefer hearty and creamy soups: serve a spicy tomato soup with crusty garlic ciabatta, or an earthy wild mushroom soup with rosemary and thyme rolls, or unique concoctions like Guinness and gouda cheese soup. As long as your starter is steamy, your guests will be happy! As for the salads, you can never go wrong with the classic cranberry, pear, walnut, and goat’s cheese (or similar type) salad on a bed of tender greens.

Main Course

Popular wedding menu ideas for winter include prime cuts of beef like filet mignon, seafood options like baked salmon, and winter or fall game meats like venison or pheasant. Another option is to serve your guests a family-style roast – perfect for sharing and getting everyone cozy. Think of gorgeous golden pastry stuffed to the brim with braised beef and slow-roasted vegetables. Couples are also looking into vegetarian options to offer non-meat-eating guests, such as pasta dishes like cheese-stuffed ravioli.

Dessert

Go for a seasonal fruit tart with thick clotted cream and steaming custard or warm sticky toffee pudding with vanilla bean custard, or to add a touch of class, decadent crème brûlée served with hot espresso. Also make sure you’re serving up hot drinks like tea, coffee, and hot chocolate for them to sip on, and consider alcoholic dessert drinks laced with the heavier liqueurs like Bailey’s Irish Cream. Add coziness with a hot chocolate station, complete with all the toppings, and a DIY roasted marshmallow station.
