Unexpected Wedding Dinners Your Guests Will Love

Published December 16th, 2019 by Chef's Catering

Would you like to make the tried-and-true wedding fare stand out in a big way? Or maybe you want to plan an unexpected wedding dinner your guests will love.

Either way, your special day can be a fun and creative way to showcase the main-course foods you love as a couple. After all, it's your big day!

Create A Theme Wedding

There are several wedding catering styles you can choose from. One of those is a theme wedding. With this style, you have the chance to present your guests with a wide variety of foods.

For a fun outdoor or carnival-themed wedding, serve miniature gourmet pizza pies, watermelon on a stick, cotton candy or small cones of herbed fries for guests to mingle with during cocktail hour.

Planning on wearing your cowgirl boots? A BBQ that your guests will never forget could include grilled corn on the cob served on a stick or veggie kabobs loaded with fresh local produce (and, of course, a pulled pork that makes your mouth water).

Remember, sometimes serving the usual uniquely, can transform your menu.

Wedding Appetizer Bar

Endless possibilities exist when it comes to creating appetizer bars for your guests. You can go fancy with a raw oyster bar or on the whimsical side of life with a soft pretzel bar, make your own s'mores or build sliders and serve them with mini beers.

Go retro with a fondue bar, thinking outside the box with crab and artichoke fondue served with a variety of veggies and breads. For a sweet twist, give your guests chocolate fondue with fresh fruit, marshmallows and doughnut holes.

Having a brunch reception? Try a waffle station with oodles of toppings to impress your guests. Omelet bars are a unique and foolproof option served alongside a strawberry mimosa. 

Unique wedding appetizer bars give your guests something to mingle over while celebrating your big day. 

Soup’s On

Because of the versatility of soups, they can make for an unexpected and tasty wedding reception dish. That’s true whether you want to serve pizza soup, one full of fresh local veggies with a sausage base or a spinoff of chicken noodle soup.

The great thing about soups is it’s not just the soup that can be unexpectedly different. You can also include a soup bar to personalize the experience. Whether you include croutons, hot pepper seasoning, different cheeses or toasted sunflower seeds, you’re sure to wow your guests.
