Amazing and Unexpected Wedding Food Ideas
Jun 16, 2019

Food plays a huge part in setting the tone of your wedding reception.  Serving up foods that are not only tasty, but also a bit unexpected, makes for a memorable experience for you and your guests.

Play with dessert

Dessert is one of the safest places to get creative. Cupcake towers of years past are now being creatively replaced by last year’s huge pastry trend, cronuts.  Half donut, half croissant, these scrumptious treats can be ices iced in delectable flavors and will be sure to disappear from the dessert tray fast.

Think Small

Mini versions of your favorite dishes make a big statement. Single meatballs in a nest of spaghetti, salad and soup shooters, mini fish and chips-the options are endless. Talk with your caterer about shrinking down some of your favorite dishes that will fit perfectly with your wedding day menu.

Upgraded Comfort Foods

Take your love of comfort foods to the next level. Love grilled cheese? Consider serving a variety of cheese options and gourmet spreads. Finish the presentation by serving the sandwiches in points aside small tomato soup shooters.

Keep it Light

Remember to include a light option that is just as delicious as heavier courses. Consider passing single-serve baby Greek salads with heirloom tomatoes, feta, olives, fresh herbs, and tangy vinaigrette.

Perfect Pairings

Consider serving your chosen dishes alongside a perfectly paired cocktail. For a more upscale event you might want to try something like caviar an vodka. For a more casual wedding sliders served with a craft beer is spot on.

DIY Stations

For beverages, sweet treats, and food offerings,  DIY interactive food stations make for great conversation starters.  If you happen to be having a Spring or Summer wedding, a grown-up snow cone station stocked with crushed ice, cups, and mojito, daiquiri, cosmo, and margarita cocktail syrups is a perfect addition to your reception.

Get Creative with Your Drinks

Shots aren’t just for frat parties. Wedding-worthy sangria gelees are made with sweet wines and citrus flavors, making them elegant and unexpected.


Undeniably some guests favorite part of any meal. Add a bit of whimsy to your sweets table to impress your guests and ensure they leave your wedding on a high note.  Nutmeg-dusted beignets served alongside mini milkshakes are a deliciously different treat.

No matter what style your wedding, these wedding food trends will elevate your event to a memorable event for you and your guests.
