Wedding Menu Planning Tips From an Industry Insider
A wedding planner and chef offers candid advice on catering, party rentals, and more wedding food dilemmas.: comment- of course the industry insider likes family style service best...it makes you buy extra food like a buffet AND have as many servers as sit down. Maximizes cost!!!
Instead of a plated dinner for your wedding, try a gourmet picnic 'dinner in a box' where everything is served at once. Having no hot items- or only one- makes food prep (and serving) easier on your catering team (especially for a tented wedding or other event that requires a cook tent and rented kitchen equipment). | by Attitude on Food, featured on @wedding chicks
An outdoor reception for a summer wedding is also lots of fun. You could have a picnic, BBQ, or a low country boil in a park or even in your own back yard. Picnic themes are easy too! You could include the traditional picnic foods such as salads, fried chicken, corn on the cob, green beans, rolls, burgers, pulled pork.
