Five Trends For Catering Your Wedding

Weddings take a lot of patience and careful planning to execute. It’s a very special day, and you want it to go smoothly, if not perfectly. You have to pick a dress or tuxedo, invitations, flowers, and so much more. When it comes to finding a location and wedding catering in Philadelphia, look no further than Village Catering and our pristine banquet hall, Cottage Green. With a variety of menu options, fashionable decorations, and accommodating service, we have it all covered so you can truly enjoy this momentous occasion.

With so many choices to make, it can feel overwhelming at times. There is so much think about just when it comes to food. You might not want to do something that isn’t in style anymore. Here are five wedding catering trends for you to consider that we can help you pull off.

  1. Food Stations

Not so different than a buffet, smaller dishes and appetizers can be served at food stations. Your guests can browse at their own convenience and help themselves. This is ideal for cocktail hour, not necessarily for the main course, although some people are doing that as well. Instead of committing to one entree, you can have a little bit of everything.

  1. Family Style

Instead of individual entrees for each guest, large portions of multiple dishes can be served to each table. Again, this allows people to try multiple plates as opposed to limiting themselves to one choice. This option gives the festivities a slightly less formal feel, and it avoids the use of traditional waiters which is cost-effective.

  1. Late Night Cravings

With receptions lasting many hours, guests may get hungry again after they’ve eaten and danced the night away. Those who drank a little too much might need more food to soak up the alcohol. These are usually not as substantial and more like snacks, but you can make it however you’d like.

  1. Dessert Bars

The tall, tiered wedding cake is a thing of the past. Everyone has seen it a thousand times. Similar to the food stations, this allows your guests to indulge in all different kinds of sweets – cupcakes, pies, brownies, cookies, doughnuts and more! You can still get a smaller cake for picture purposes if you don’t want to miss out on the tradition.
