Your big day is almost here and you couldn’t be more excited. Knowing that Azazie makes it easy to shop for bridal dresses has taken a huge load off your mind because you know it’s going to be easy to find the perfect bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses. What about the entrée for your wedding?
Some people prefer more of a casual setup where they have food stations located throughout the reception hall. You could add bulk candy in every color for a candy buffet and make it look absolutely amazing for one station. For another station, you could have appetizer style finger foods. And at yet another station, you might have food that you’d find in a more traditional meal like steak, chicken, or fish.
No one ever said planning the perfect wedding reception was going to be easy. But one thing’s for certain: you have to offer the right food. So if you’re going to serve traditional entrées, we’ve got five incredible ideas to consider that we’ll share with you now.
- Grilled Chicken & Cherry Tomato Skewers
At your wedding, you’re obviously going to want to serve food that people traditionally love, but it doesn’t necessarily have to come in the style that they are used to. Instead of serving a chicken breast and gravy, you could have your caterer create grilled chicken and cherry tomato skewers with peppers and mushrooms and other great tasting vegetables on them.
By choosing skewers over a traditional chicken plate, you are mixing things up and serving great tasting food all at the same time. You can add zucchini and onions to the mix as well, and you’ll really have a great tasting option that your guests will devour.
- Grilled Steak, Butternut Squash, Mixed Vegetables, & Fresh Fruit
Depending on your wedding guests, you can serve them an amazing grilled steak like a porterhouse or flank steak, and if you have vegans or vegetarians in the crowd, you always have the option to serve plant-based “steak” instead of the animal-based option. As long as you have the right chef preparing your meal, the traditional steak or the plant-based option will taste absolutely amazing because they will provide an amazing sauce to go along with the steak and it will taste wonderful.
- Lobster, Green Beans, & Mashed Potatoes
It shouldn’t surprise you to know that some of your guests are going to love seafood and really hope that you have something delicious on your menu. If you serve the lobster with mashed potatoes and green beans, you will be able to satisfy their cravings for delicious tasting buttery seafood and they will be very satisfied with their meal choice when all is said and done.
- Filet Mignon, Grilled Asparagus, & Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Obviously this is a more traditional meal that you would typically find at a wedding. But it’s definitely worth offering to your guests because some of them will want to enjoy a delicious filet mignon. The mashed sweet potatoes and grilled asparagus will be a great touch that most wouldn’t expect. For the picky eaters in the crowd, offer them the option to order regular mashed potatoes in lieu of the mashed sweet potatoes.
- Fried Chicken, Biscuits, and Macaroni and Cheese
If your guests love traditional American fare, why not give it to them? Have the caterer prepare fried chicken, mac & cheese, and delicious biscuits. If that’s what your people love, then they should definitely get to eat it.
As you can see, you can definitely spice up your wedding entrées and step outside the norm. We’ve barely scratched the surface with five of our favorite recommendations. If none of them tickle your fancy, think about what you’d like to see on the menu and ask the caterer if they can make it taste delicious. It’s a surefire way to make you and your guests happy with their dinner choices.
