Summer truly is in full swing, and as the favoured wedding season brings about outdoor festivities and everything associated with the warmer weather, the planning is directed to making the most from the season. Every aspect is equally important to ensure the final outcome provides the summery feel every bride hopes for.
Wedding catering is a vital part of many wedding celebrations, for both the newlyweds and guests. Sticking to the theme throughout is important, so take a look at the following ideas for your summer menu, and have the most mouth-watering wedding.
Let guests quench their thirst and get the party started, with a selection of fabulous drinks. Non-alcoholic lemonade or iced tea bars are very popular, as are light and refreshing cocktails. Displaying different flavours in glass jugs along with cut fruit for garnishes makes for a lovely decorative setup during your reception.
Cold appetisers can help your guests cool down and will work well at your cocktail hour. Anything miniature is hugely popular for weddings of all seasons, so consider options like mini Caesar salads or shrimp cocktail on ice.
Sizzling Entrée Selections
Summer isn’t summer without barbecuing, so why not consider serving a grilled entrée for instant seasonal style. Stick to lighter foods, like chicken or fish, whilst enhancing the meat with fruit flavours such as chili-lime or mango salsa. All incorporated in an up-scale picnic-style fare to provide both a low-maintenance and high-style menu.
Serving a dessert in addition to the wedding cake is more popular now than ever, with endless options. Consider serving a mini-scoop trio of sorbet that mimics your colour theme; with many flavours to choose from including melon, lime, raspberry or mango.
Hopefully these summer themed ideas will give you some inspiration to keep that summer theme running throughout your special day.
