Food plays an important role on most wedding days. Having the right menu can help you set the tone, incorporate your own taste, and leave your guests happy. However, when you’re planning the menu the possibilities are endless and that can be overwhelming. Let’s discuss some steps you can take when it comes to creating the perfect menu for your big day.

Your Wedding Menu

There are so many different things to take into account when putting together your wedding menu. One of the first things you’ll need to think about is what style of food you’d like.

Food Style

Food style is a great place to start when you’re making decisions about your wedding menu. If you’re wanting a rustic Italian feast, then you’ll be going with a different caterer than if you’re looking for a southern barbeque. By having an idea about the specific food style you’d like, you can narrow down your vendor options and be sure that you’re setting yourself up for success.

Food Tone

Another important thing to think about is what tone you want the food to align with. Is your wedding going to be full of dark colors and a moody vibe? Is it going to be light and airy? Thinking about this can give you a good direction for your menu.

Food Options

Do you have multiple guests with strict dietary restrictions? Many people don’t think about this when they’re planning their wedding menu, but it can be important to have different options for guests to choose from. This is a great way to make sure that everyone’s included and has options to eat.


Being clear with your caterer about any and all dietary restrictions is important. That information should be communicated as soon as possible in the planning process so that your caterer has time to prepare and come up with alternative dishes.

Food Logistics

There are a few different details that are typically forgotten and the logistics behind the food is often one of them. It’s important to work closely with your caterer to ensure they’re prepared for the setting of your reception. For example, if your guests are going to be eating outside, the caterer will need to take that into account when thinking about the temperature of the food and how to keep it safe for the guests to eat.
