4 Tasty Ways To Make Your Wedding Reception Unforgettable

By Aaron Hu

When putting together your wedding choosing the rights foods for your reception menu and edible wedding favors ranks high on the list of important things to do. Maybe it is because taste can also be a powerful trigger memory. When your guests happen to taste something similar to what they had at your wedding reception, the memory of that day and its significance will be recalled every time. So in wanting to plan an unforgettable ceremony and reception, you want to have memorable food that your guests will still be dreaming of long after they leave. Of course put that way you would think I mean you should hire a celebrity chef. However it doesn't. As long as its good food prepared by someone who knows what he or she is doing, you can get the same result for less. The important thing is to know what to look for to guarantee such success. Here are some suggestions that should help you plan a wonderful meal and other treats for your wedding this winter.

One thing you can do is to try to use in season foods as part of your menu. Since December is just starting, you have a great advantage because you have access to many of the fruits and vegetables that were just harvested this November. So you will have a wide selection to choose from. Also choosing in season foods has many advantages. First you will be sure of the freshness and quality of the food served to your guests. When that is true the deliciousness of whatever is prepared for the reception will be assured. Also if it is from local farms you will also save more in the long run.

Look at who can prepare your food. The expertise is necessary, but exorbitant prices for catering should be avoided like the plague. You want to find a competent team of chefs or cooks who can prepare your menu at a reasonable price. One good place to look is any local hotel that has an in house restaurant. They are some of the best chefs you can find since they are likely to have had formal training and can prepare most well known dishes and some specialties of their own that they have prepared for guests. So take a look and see if you can hire them to prepare food for your reception. On top of that, if you hold your reception at the same venue, you will likely find further savings.

Look to have some signature dishes. You will likely have a theme for your wedding. Try to see if you can find foods that will match your theme and be distinctive. For example a suggestion I came across for fall wedding menus was a pumpkin soup served in its own shell. That is something that is unique and distinctive that will be sure to make a great impression on your guests. So try to get similar dishes incorporated into a reception menu.

Give your guest something sweet or savory to take home with them. The finale of any endeavor is the best time to add your own special flourish. Edible wedding favors are delicious treats that can do just that for your wedding. For example you can give your guests something sweet that matches a winter them, such as chocolate mints or snowflake shaped white chocolates. If your guests are into something savory, a great idea could be packaged venison jerky or a tin of mixed nuts.
