Now that Spring is here, so too begins the abundance of fresh produce available to us all once again. When it comes to living both a healthy lifestyle and entertaining like a pro, my go-to tip is to eat with the seasons. Food tastes better yes, but it makes menu planning so much easier, and fun! You wouldn’t serve pumpkin at your Memorial Day bash would you?? Well this same rule is a must when planning your wedding and choosing the perfect meals to serve your guests. Your gorgeous dress, the heartwarming vows, these are definitely things guests will remember, but those pretty details will be easily forgotten if your guests are served a less than special meal. Use your favorite foods as inspiration, play up the venue’s scenery and definitely use the season of your wedding to your advantage…
From Shutterfly…No matter what season you’ll be getting married, you’ll definitely have to plan a wedding menu. For many couples, this is one of the more stressful aspects of wedding planning due to the endless options and ideas that are available to pick from. If you’re getting married and feeling overwhelmed from choosing your food and drink menu, consider all the seasonal flavors that will perfectly compliment your venue and feel of your event.
Those choosing an al fresco summer wedding, might choose a more laid back menu that features summertime favorites like fresh tomato salads, lemonade, or even barbecue. If you’re having an autumn or winter wedding, consider adding rich flavors, like butternut squash soup, and cozy hot chocolate to your meal.
No matter when you’re getting married, creating a seasonal menu can help elevate the dining experience for you and your guests, and make it a night they will truly remember!
