Mashed Potatoes (with a twist!)
Mashed potatoes may not sound like the most elegant wedding item, but it can be when you serve roasted garlic mashed potatoes in martini glasses.

Sliders are a crowd-pleasing comfort food, and a versatile part of your wedding menu. Mini burgers can be served in a food station with all the toppings your guests could ever want, or as a late night fuel that keeps everyone on the dance floor.
Variety is the spice of life, and it’s also the key to a delicious quesadilla food station.

If you’re hosting a traditional sit down meal, include quesadillas in your menu as an appetizer or late night course.
Sometimes the best comfort foods are by association, and warm biscuits are sure to bring a cozy feeling to your menu and your guests. If biscuits are your favorite comfort foods, ask your caterer what other dishes they would recommend to complement this delectable comfort food.
