Although Winter weddings aren’t traditionally as popular as the other seasons, we are here to tell you just why you should consider them! One of the key elements to a charming and inviting winter wedding is FOOD! If you are a foodie or simply enjoy the ideas of comfort food, we have some great suggestions for you!
Nothing says cozy quite like a warm drink or meal on a cold day and to kick off your winter wedding, might we suggest a great passed hors d’oeuvres idea that puts a spin on the classic comfort food; tomato soup served in a shooter glass accompanied by bite size grilled cheese sandwich.
You can also simply put your favorite soup into mini coffee mugs. These make great presentation pieces but are also warm to the tummy.
We love adding signature drinks to any wedding and a warm wintry cocktail would be perfect for your guest. These can be served before or after the wedding ceremony. Great options include; eggnog, ciders, spiked coffee, teas, etc. These are just a few wintry cocktails we love.
For the meal, skip the salad and add a heartier option like warm risotto for your first course. If you are offering a buffet, why not add a gourmet mac-n-cheese station or a sweet potato bar. There are so many great comfort foods options to choose from so ask your chef for his/her ideas.
No meal is complete without something sweet! You can add warm cobblers and pies or bring out the kid in everyone with a fabulous s’mores station. Add a warm drink to your dessert bar, such as a hot cocoa station with bottles of marshmallow vodka for the adults in attendance.
Winter weddings can be equally as fun and delicious as their counterpart seasons, so embrace this glorious season and all it has to offer!
