Holiday Wedding Meal Ideas
A holiday wedding meal can be as festive as you make it; that’s why we’ve put together some holiday wedding meal ideas that’ll up the holiday cheer on your big day.
Hot cider, hot cocoa, champagne, your favorite drink with a holiday garnishment. When you craft your holiday wedding menu, don’t forget to include a festive drink to your holiday wedding menu. If you want to make your guests’ beverage experience merry, add an interactive holiday drink station to your wedding reception.
Today’s wedding foods are all your favorite dishes—only served with a stellar presentation and taste your guests’ll appreciate. Choose comfort foods—scrumptious lobster mac and cheese, gourmet grilled cheese, sweet potato fries, you name the dish— and serve them with garnishments that fit with your holiday wedding mood (ask your caterer for ways to do so).
Holiday memories elicit visions of big family dinners gathered around the table with platters of food. Those platters usually include a delicious potato dish—what kind of potato dish you have is up to you. Consider a mashed reds food station with all the garnishments your guests crave or a Princess Onion Potatoes (piped potato prepared with sour cream, garlic, and caramelized onion). For another take on holiday potatoes, ask your caterer for creative potato ideas that fit with your vision.
A holiday wedding menu deserves a main dish that’s as mouth-watering as a family holiday get together. Choose a Thanksgiving food station (you’ll score points for creative presentation and flavor with this wedding menu trend) with chef carved turkey breast accompanied by whipped sweet potato, herbed sage dressing, cranberry relish, and gravy. For other delectable options or a scrumptious vegetarian main dish, ask your caterer for their recommendation.
Salads with Holiday Accents
Even your salad can scream holiday, if you add ingredients that scream the season. Choose salads with pumpkin or cranberries (like our mesclun salad with mesclun greens, dried cranberries, and toasted almonds.
Traditional Holiday Desserts
Complete your holiday menu and atmosphere with traditional holiday desserts. Desserts like a traditional bread pudding with decadent bourbon sauce or a crème brulee served with a chocolate strawberry and caramel sauce. Both desserts leave your guests’ mouth watering—and taking them back to a traditional holiday meal.
