Are you looking to shake up traditional wedding fare? Couples across the U.S., but especially here in New York City and New Jersey, are showcasing their love for food during their big day. Foodie Weddings are for sure starting to trend in 2016 and well into 2017. Instead of the traditional passed apps and plated chicken or steak dinners we are seeing an emergence of fresh twists on favorites, farm to table inspired dishes,raw bars, sushi, and more.
Here are some of my favorites:Showcase locally made and sourced cheeses
Showcase locally made and sourced cheeses
Tantalize the senses with a Raw bar and showcase oysters from the east coast. Shrimp and clams are also a great addition!
A gorgeous assortment of sushi is one way to brighten up the appetizers at any wedding.
Hold the salmon. Instead, try scallops instead. A fresh twist on the traditional sea food fare.
Stimulate the senses with craft cocktails topped off with a beautiful locally sourced garnish.
The appetizers are equally as important as the drink, so why not pair them together? Pair a signature cocktail together with an app guests will love.
Skip the traditional cake and offer up a sorbet bar, made with fresh ingredients and perfectly sized.
For the bride and groom with a sweet tooth, showcase artisan donuts.
For favors, leave guests with flavors of your wedding by saying “Thank you” with custom flavored olive oil bottles.
