Drinks, Dinner, Dessert: Planning the Perfect Menu!

There are three important things to consider when planning your wedding menu: drinks, dinner, and dessert. Making sure you get the right combination of the three is essential, otherwise all you will have is a recipe for disaster.

Drinks

White wine is a must at an indoor reception. Red wine may taste fabulous, but with people dancing and mingling from table to table, there’s bound to be a spill. White wine will be a much bigger hit once it’s time to do laundry!

Dinner

Whether you decide to have a buffet dinner or a planned meal for your guests, it is always important to take into consideration the preferences and needs of your friends and family. With a growing number of vegetarians and vegans, it is important to remember to have several options or side dishes, rather than just a big block of meat so that nobody goes hungry.

Dessert

It wouldn’t be a wedding without a beautiful multi-tiered cake, but check out these suggestions for other possible treats to make your perfect day a little sweeter! Fresh fruit and homemade ice cream would be perfect for a summer wedding to cool down your guests. Recently, there has also been a trend to steer away from traditional wedding reception foods and weddings have started serving more family-friendly treats! Try cotton candy if the reception is more casual or outdoors to make the day even more sweet!
