Some guests come for the I do’s, others come for the food and booze! We’re sharing five wedding food trends that will have guests coming back for more.
Brunch weddings and food are two trends we’re keeping an eye on this year because who doesn’t love breakfast food? This wedding food trend is perfect because breakfast is completely customizable, which means you can choose any and all different types of food to serve at your wedding. Waffles, pancakes, and bacon are just a few things you can add to make the breakfast bar of your dreams. If you’re feeling adventurous, you may even add chicken strips to your waffles for a chicken and waffle bar. The ideas are endless when it comes to breakfast food, so go forth and create the breakfast bar of your dreams.
p.s. a mimosa and bloody mary bar to accompany the food bar is an absolute must!
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option that not only serves delicious food but has minimal cleanup, then a food truck may be for you. We’ve noticed more food trucks making appearances at weddings and it’s a trend we are loving! Most food trucks will work with you to make a custom menu, specifically designed for your special day. A bonus? You can make the food truck the center of your reception by hanging lights over your tables from the food truck for a cozy, but romantic, setting. Not to mention, there are options galore from pizza and tacos to BBQ and burgers.
This trend might be the simplest on the list because pizza is easy to order in large batches and is meant to feed groups of people. You can order pizzas with any and all types of toppings if you don’t choose to make them yourself, which means you can make even the pickiest eater happy with the topping choices. This trend will make waves with your guests because they can serve themselves and you can find cute ways to make a beautiful pizza bar.
A pretzel bar is a perfect way to provide treats for guests during the cocktail hour. A wall or line of hanging pretzels is just two ways to showcase this cute snack. You can serve savory or sweet sauces so guests can choose whether they want to have their pretzel as a snack or dessert. This food trend gives you the best of both worlds if you’re looking for a dessert alternative other than cake.
You won’t hear of any late-night Taco Bell runs after a wedding with this food trend. A midnight snack bar can be any snack you would want to eat late at night; the options are endless! If your wedding is ending later than most, perhaps you’re throwing an after-party, or even if you just really love late-night snacks, you can serve options like popcorn, french fries, chicken fingers, or donuts. This food trend can even double as a wedding favor if you find some cute to-go containers.
Whether you opt for one of the trends above or something completely different, we’d love to know what you’re planning to dish up at your wedding! Tag us on Instagram at @rockymtnbride or comment below.
