Wedding Cocktails Your Guests Will Be Swooning Over!

Tired of going to weddings and drinking the same old boring beer and wine bar?  Don’t get me wrong, I love beer AND especially wine but your wedding is supposed to be special and exceptional!  Chances are, your guests are not going to remember all of your flowers or what color bridesmaids dresses your girls wore.  But they always remember the food and alcohol…it’s just the truth.  I love these amazing wedding cocktails that are anything but ordinary.

Swoon on!

Impressive Catering Trends For 2014!

Well, you don’t have to ask me twice to write about food!  I do consider myself a foodie which makes me VERY excited to write about the latest catering trends that couples are jumping all over for their weddings.  Wedding food is often deemed boring or bland lacking creativity and taste.  However, our country does not fall short of amazing chefs and caterers thus making spectacular wedding food within reach regardless of where you live.  For centuries, food is what brings us together and often a must have at any celebration!  From organic and local menus to food trucks to exquisite fare, the spread that a couple chooses to serve at their wedding greatly reflects who they are as a couple.

Join us as we dive into these incredible catering trends of 2014!

I had to start with this trend because it is by far my ABSOLUTE favorite!  What a great idea for your guests to enjoy during the wedding and as a take home favor.

Canapes!  A canape is very similar to an hors d’oeuvre; the main difference is that they are served on a board and usually bite size therefore requiring no eating utensils.  Canapes are traditionally made with a base of bread and then savory meats and ingredients on top.  Above this photo you can see the difference with the hors d’oeuvres!

Not all metallic wedding cakes are shiny.  If you don’t like the sheen, choose a matte metallic!

If you like a traditional wedding cake, find a design that you can incorporate details in gold or silver instead of an all metallic layer.
