The typical Wedding reception is a thing of the past. Brides and grooms are dabbling with new trends in food and cocktail choices!
Couples are steering away from the common reception offering a simple plated meal with cake to follow. Couples are choosing menu options that are fun, trendy, and delicious!.
Finger foods and hors d’ oeuvres are becoming popular choices for the evening. Of course, they should be filling if this choice is made.
Our most popular items include mini crab cakes, wellingtons, shrimp cocktail, chimichangas, empanadas, and crostini. Why not incorporate your favorite comfort foods into the reception as well. When presented in a elegant, yet fun manner, corn dog skewers, assorted popcorns, French fries, and Mac-n-cheese bites can be a hit!
Another popular trend is to serve appetizers in edible carriers. Some examples include spinach dip served in edible spoons, Caesar salad bites in parmesan crusted phyllo cups, or shrimp bruschetta served on toast rounds.
Signature cocktails are also a fantastic way to make a reception or cocktail hour one to remember. We work with couples to create a beverage that coincides with their theme and desired color scheme. Clever names are also a great way to spice up the reception. Some fun examples include a “Beach-tini” at a beach-themed wedding or a “Butler-politan” at the Butler wedding?
If you’re looking for ways to keep your guests mingling, offer food stations. Some fun ideas for stations include potato martini bars, pasta stations, or candy buffets.
Of course, when choosing a passed menu, the venue is just as important. The Maitland Art Museum, Heaven Event Center, and the Orlando Museum of Art are all exceptional choices. They all offer plenty of room to walk around, as well as stunning art and decor.
As you can see, your options are limitless. This is your day, so make it one to remember!
