5 Catering Options Wedding Guests Will Love
When picking a wedding menu for catering, it's best to impress. So bring out your A game and don't skip the alcoholic beverages if you want your wedding to end on a high note.
People love salmon. Even people who don't particularly like fish tend to dive right into a succulent slab of it. There's a reason why it's a staple of most catering companies. It's simple, fresh, and when cooked well, nothing can be finer. Throw in a nice side salad or some creamy potatoes and you're sure to satisfy 90% of your guests.
It may not scream classy, but there's no denying that good old comfort food like barbecued chicken, mashed potatoes, and macaroni and cheese makes a great meal. Few people can resist a slow-cooked roast smothered in sweet and smoky sauce, even if they are wearing elbow-length gloves. The key to getting away with sloppy food is keeping ample supplies of paper towels and pre-moistened towels on every table. Throw in some extra utensils and a serve-yourself buffet and even the snobs should be content.
A great finger food (if your guests are inept with chopsticks) that is healthy, comes in endless varieties, and will keep everyone's white shirts clean as long as no one goes crazy with the soy sauce. Sushi is underrated and underused as a wedding food in the Western world. It can be expensive, but for intimate occasions it's a clear winner. That is, of course, unless you have guests that are strictly anti-raw fish. Fortunately, veggie rolls and even chicken teriyaki can satisfy even picky eaters.
Forget donuts or nostalgic store-bought snack cakes, cupcakes are the new "it" food, and they're a great alternative to stuffy white wedding cakes. These pint-size desserts are fuss-free with no slicing required, meaning salivating guests get their sugar fix fast. They also can be made in a variety of flavor combos to suit all tastes, so you'll have your chocolate lover covered, as well as your vanilla, as well as the indecisive. And as far as decorating goes, you can't beat the sight of a multi-tiered cupcake tree, each muffin capped off with fluffy colored frosting, just waiting for a bite.
Okay, so maybe it doesn't count as food, but when all else fails, bring on the cocktails. Guests grumble about having to pay high prices for alcohol than just about anything else at a wedding. If you really want to make them remember (or more aptly, pretend to remember) your special day, keep the drinks flowing and no one will care if you did serve bad pasta.
