Current Wedding Food Trends for Fall 2016

Weddings have taken a far turn from conventionalism. And that’s something to be excited about! No longer are there “rules” to planning a wedding, and couples are being more and more creative every season. As for fall, there are some incredibly-smart and tasteful food trends for weddings that have already been a huge hit within the catering industry. If you are planning a wedding and intend on having it catered, continue reading for some popular food menu ideas that everyone is raving about this year!

Wedding Hors D’oeuvres

Cocktail hour should always be accompanied by some good appetizer foods. The problem is, no one wants to set their drink down to eat with a fork and knife. That’s what the reception dinner is for, after all. So miniature bites have been a huge hit for weddings. These hors d’oeuvres are perfectly bite-sized, making them enjoyable and convenient. They can be made to me as simple or as complex as you like, ranging from delicacies and shellfish, to small bites like sausages, artichoke hearts, pot stickers, salmon rolls, cheeseballs, quiches, crostini’s, and more. Miniature bites are popular and tasty appetizers for cocktail hour.

Main Course Comfort

Trending right now is comfort food for weddings! Mini hot dogs, cheeseburger sliders, fried chicken, and even tacos have become a favored menu selection for 2016 weddings. Although these foods seem untraditional and generic, they can be made into elegant dishes by using gourmet ingredients and condiments.

Desserts

Traditional desserts are a menu item of the past. Couples have enjoyed a wide array of unique and delicious desserts that work for guests of all ages. For example, traditional tiered wedding cakes are being replaced more and more with fun cupcake towers, or massive displays of cookies, brownies, donuts, and even candy bars! In fact, actual candy “bars” have become very popular (tables filled with jars and displays of various candies), allowing guests to make themselves a to-go bag of candy as a gift!

Another popular menu item has been milkshakes. These are great because they can be made on the fly, in endless flavors, and in custom sizes. And the best part is, they can go with guests on the dance floor! Yogurt and mousse parfaits have also been popular because they can be customized to match wedding themes and colors, and can be healthy too!
