One of the most memorable elements of a great wedding is incredible food. While steak and lobster tends to be a wedding favorite, we find that guests actually get more excited by “fun foods” that can be incorporated into different aspects of the wedding. Remember that your wedding menu is a great way to show your your distinct personalities, so select something that your guests will know is your favorite, and you can’t go wrong.
Perfect for those hot summer weddings – or pretty much anytime here in Florida, this bright & colorful idea will leave your guests cool and refreshed. The cocktails can easily be switched out for kiddie-friendly drinks as needed.

If you live in the south, you know this is a must! How cute is this authentic gelato cart from Style Me Pretty. You can serve it with cake or if you can’t wait that long, serve it following an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour.

Mini Grilled Cheeses & Tomato Soup Shooters
One of my all time favorites. Until the end of time I will associate grilled cheese and tomato soup with Friday lunch at the Theta house at Florida State. Serve this grown up version at your cocktail hour or as part of a food station.

Chicken N’ Waffles
Chicken and Waffles is no longer just comfort food. However, up until now it’s taken a knife, fork and a whole lot of napkins. This bite-sized take on the classic southern delight is easily accessible and will knock your guests socks off! This presentation is surprising and absolutely beautiful!
If you want to incorporate a little bit of your heritage and culture but still want to keep the dinner menu mrs traditional, why not try bringing in Food Truck late night like our clients Caroline + Brad did at their wedding!

This next photo has been around for awhile, but we still love it! These mini tacos with mini tequila bottles are just too fun! Don’t be shocked if your caterer doesn’t want to balance them on a lime, but you get the idea.

If you and your fiancé love a backyard BBQ or are known for spending your fall tailgating at your alma mater, you might want to incorporate sliders and fries into your celebration. Think beyond just beef sliders to include chicken, grouper, veggie and even ham on a biscuit. Serving fries in a paper cone makes them more portable than on a flat plate. These photos were from our client’s recent wedding at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort in St. Petersburg, FL.
