Food is an essential element of a wow-worthy wedding and if you want to surprise your guests with a menu that is unique and inspiring, these wedding food trends will certainly get them talking. Read on to discover the most inspiring wedding food trends that you will see at your next wedding or maybe incorporate them into your own this year.
Canapés Inspired by Comfort Food
The canapés set the scene for your wedding menu and this is one area that you can really let your imagination run wild. One way to impress guests is to have their favourite childhood meals and snacks created in canapé form. Think pigs in blankets, sausage rolls, mini fish and chips, mini burgers as well as Yorkshire puddings. Alternatively, brunch themed canapés are also on the rise. Think mini waffles and mini stacks of pancakes to add a touch of sweetness to your day.
Farm Inspired Food
The wedding breakfast has to be showstopping and this latest food trend is bound to make an impact. This year, we will see more organic produce incorporated into the wedding breakfast with food provided by local artisans. Farm-to-table is a huge trend for the year ahead.
The Wedding Cake
The wedding cake is one trend that will never disappear but the style of course is ever changing. Last year, naked cakes was one of the biggest trends out there but this year, the traditional iced wedding cake is back with a contemporary twist. This year will see a flurry of stunning marble and dramatic drip designs. Wedding cake designs are becoming a lot more intricate with more complex hand painted options also becoming available.
DIY Food Stations
2016 was the year of pizza and prosecco trucks and crêpe stands but this year, things are getting a bit more hands on. DIY food stations are a superb way to add an element of surprise to your wedding celebration and they give guests the opportunity to get stuck in. The DIY element allows you to please all of your guests at the same time so why not have them make their own Mimosa, tacos or smores? Your guests are going to adore this trend. Providing lots of toppings such as chocolate chips, sprinkles and mini marshmallows not only provides guests with unlimited choice but also looks visually appealing too.
From Sweet to Savoury
Cake tables and doughnut walls are so 2016. This year, elaborate food displays are taking a turn for the savoury. Cupcakes and doughnuts are going to be replaced with pick and mix sushi stations, taco and nacho bars as well as oyster and champagne bars. When deciding on a savoury food station, always include a complementary drink pairing so for example if you were thinking about seafood station, you could offer a cocktail that is the perfect match or you could try burgers and beers, nachos and margaritas or cheese and Negroni.
These are just a few of the latest wedding food trends that can make your special day deliciously different. Which wedding food trends will take your fancy this year?
