Eclectic, locally sourced, internationally inspired or delightfully comforting, we open the lid on 2018’s yummiest wedding food trends…
How does that old adage go again? The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach… Forget just the boys, we say everyone’s stomach likes to be loved. Certain to be a crowd-pleaser at your glorious big day, take note of this year’s top wedding food trends from wedding food caterer, Tapenade, and plan accordingly (we’ve got our eye on that Mac ‘n’ Cheese…).
Gourmet Comfort Food
Particularly thrilling if you’re planning a winter wedding, nothing says ‘come and get me’ quite like a large plate of some good old-fashioned comfort food. Brides are increasingly giving their guests what they want in the form of hearty winter warmers including bangers and mash, fish pie and Mac ‘n’ Cheese.
The festival-inspired, free-spirited bohemian vibe remains at the top of its game. Match the food to your theme and invest in a van full of delights (particularly pleasing to the eye and the stomach alike are chips in newspaper!).
DIY Food and Drink Stations
Taking outdoor summer British weddings by storm this year is the trend for do it yourself. Think ‘make your own burger’ or ‘shake your own cocktail’!
Pairing and Sharing
Serving a selection of mini pairings such as oysters and mini Bloody Mary’s is becoming ever more popular!
Mix and Match Crockery
We can’t help but think of Mamma Mia here. Go eclectic and fabulous for a shabby-chic, too-cool vintage look.
For some serious spice, take inspiration from the world of food and get adventurous! More couples are asking for international dishes at their wedding, including dishes from Africa, Persia and the Middle East.
Take-Away Table Decorations
Give your guests a treat to take away with them as a memento. Mini potted plants and little packs of seeds will help the love grow and grow!
From farm to fork, keep the carbon footprint to a minimum as well as supporting local businesses!
