Fall Wedding Catering Tips
Do you plan to have your wedding catered in the fall? If so, you're in for an abundance of memorable options to impress your guests. The harvest season brings cool weather and warm aromatic spices. From deeply flavorful dishes to rich desserts, you'll be able to get creative when planning your menu. Here are three fun fall catering ideas to get you started.
Fall Wedding Catering Starters
When the cool air sets in, a warm bowl of soup is the ultimate choice for many when it comes to wedding reception starters. Instead of a salad, entice your guests with lobster bisque or warm butternut soup with blue cheese crumbles. You and your guests will have fun celebrating the new season of the year along with the new season of your life!
If salad is your desire, try crisp greens with apples, sharp cheddar, toasted pepitas and walnuts. The sky is the limit when it comes to giving your guests a taste of the season. The variety of local produce will allow you and your caterer to get creative.
The Main Course for a Fall Wedding
When putting together perfect fall entrees, think comfort food. Depending on your style and budget, you may want to consider a home-style BBQ, your favorite cut of meat or flavorful potpies chocked full of herbs, carrots, turnips and tender chicken.
Talk to your caterer about unique ways to incorporate local produce into your main course. This will possibly help reduce your costs and tie the season to your reception better. By embracing the season when planning your fall wedding entrées, you'll create a tasty, fun and memorable meal for those closest to you.
A Sweet Ending to a New Beginning (Fall Wedding Dessert Ideas)
As the meal is winding down, give your guests a fall-favorite dessert. Consider offering a coffee bar with pumpkin spice coffee and whipped cream or a caramel apple bar where guests can create their own decadent fall dessert. Mulled hot apple cider is another classic seasonal treat.
A rich chocolate cake is a fall favorite when it comes to the wedding cake. If cake isn’t your thing, try warm spiced pies with seasonal fruit served with ice cream or you can decide on creamy cheesecakes.
