Memorable Meals: 3 Food Trends for RI Wedding Receptions

It’s all about customization - from wedding accessories and invitations to the dinner you serve. Discover some great inspiration to help you make your most special meal as memorable as it can be!


Wedding brunch is a hot trend for 2014. This would be the perfect selection for a couple who not only want to cut down on catering costs but also want to infuse a bit of whimsy into their wedding. Your brunch can be fun - like pancake bites as hors d’oeuvres; or sophisticated - like an omelette station or eggs benedict. Champagne easily lends itself to a breakfast centric meal, add some different juices to mix and you can stylize your own mimosas!

Family Style Dinner, In Style:

Serving meals family style is another big trend this year.  We love this because it brings back the original intention of an after-wedding meal:  to bond the two families who have just pledged to support the new couple on their marital journey.  And what better way to get family and friends, often  from far flung places, mingling and talking, than to have them sharing and passing around platters of delicious food?

Sumptuous Storytelling:

You can wow your guests by using your wedding meal to tell your love story. Perhaps your first date was by the beach: take that inspiration and delight in a menu that might offer shrimp cocktail or mussels with crusty, garlic bread as an appetizer before your guests are treated to a clambake! Are you and your Groom avid gardeners? Let your guests be tempted by a menu that outlines your passion while teasing their taste buds with farm to table inspired cuisine.
