Seasonal wedding menus are a great option for the couple who not only want to use local produce but who also want to add their own special touch to the menu. Local foods are best when in-season and some foods are only available during a certain period of time. A good caterer will be able to take the in-season specialties and turn them into a delicious wedding menu. Read on for some suggestions!
For a spring wedding, light, fresh options are never out of place. After a winter filled with heavy, rich foods, a salad of fresh greens followed by grilled salmon would be a welcome change. End the night with a crisp, sweet treat like lemon tarts.
Once the days get hot, summer weddings are the perfect time to offer your guests fresh fruit salad and grilled chicken with summer tomatoes. Hot nights call for cold treats, so try mixing things up with a make-your-own sundae bar or hire an ice cream truck to make the rounds!
When fall rolls in, rich spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves are exactly what your guests will be craving. Try a hearty salad with sliced apples followed by Prosciutto-wrapped flounder served with roasted potatoes. Dessert is an easy choice: S’mores!
Winter weddings almost require comfort foods! Start your guests off with a thick, creamy soup and then continue the trend with delicious, slow-roasted short rib accompanied by a side of macaroni and cheese. To keep your guests feeling warm and happy, finish off the evening with eggnog and trays of cookies.
