How to Choose a Delicious Wedding Menu

Aside from the decor and the weather, one of the most important aspects of your wedding is the food.  Coming up with a wedding menu is a fun, but sometimes challenging, adventure.  At Village Catering, we specialize in creating wedding menus that everyone will love.  If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding, and you still need some guidance on the menu, consult with Village Catering.  We can help you create a delicious wedding menu that your guests will remember for years to come.

At Village Catering, we take the time to get to know more about your wedding menu goals.  Do you envision a traditional filet of beef with twice-baked potatoes?  Or are you leaning more towards a modern twist on delicious, such as Chinese dim sum, Spanish tapas, or Indian paneer?  Maybe you want to replicate a special dish from your mother’s kitchen or perhaps you’ve got a favorite recipe from your grandmother that you’d like to highlight.  Whatever your preference, the team at Village Catering can help you make your wedding menu dreams come to life.

One of the best ways to create a tantalizing wedding menu is by hiring a catering company to help you organize the details.  Try to book your wedding caterer at least a year in advance, if possible.  It’s always a good idea to give your wedding caterer as much time as possible to figure out menu ideas.  It will also give you ample time to finalize the menu without feeling rushed.  Once you’ve got the bones of the menu pinned down, request a tasting.  Many catering companies will treat you to a few samplings to ensure that the food matches up to your expectations.

The team at Village Catering has been working with couples-to-be for years.  We can help you come up with a menu that has special significance to you and your partner.  For example, think about foods you love to eat.  Is there a particular culinary heritage that you want to exude on your wedding day?  Do you have a dish in mind that reflects a special day shared with your partner, such as a first date or an engagement?  There are many ways to create a delicious wedding menu that your guests will love.

Be sensitive to the fact that your guests might not have such adventurous culinary tastes, but don’t let it squelch your creativity, either.  You can always opt for intriguing hors d’oeuvres coupled with a more traditional main course.  Keep the kids in mind and consider a special menu for them.  Have fun and use cookbooks, restaurant menus, and magazines for inspiration, too.
