3 Cool Ideas for Hot Summer Wedding Catering

There’s nothing better than a beautiful summer wedding! Of course, the additional heat of summertime means that you want to plan your meal accordingly. We’re going to give you three tips to help your guests to cool off and enjoy your perfect summer wedding.

#1 Keep Those Drinks Coming

It’s hot outside, and that means you want to keep your guests well hydrated. Alcoholic beverages can actually lead to dehydration, so use those sparingly – perhaps a cocktail hour is a good option. But that doesn’t mean your drink menu has to be boring. Be sure to include flavored punch, freshly squeezed lemonade, spa water, and other tasty hydrating options.

#2 Cool Off with Appetizers

Instead of hot hors d’oeuvres, go with some cool starters. There’s nothing more classic than peel and eat shrimp with cocktail sauce. For a fresh and fun vegetarian option, try skewers with tomato, mozzarella, and basil. It’s like a Caprese salad you can hold and eat with one hand.

#3 Entrees That Evoke Summer

Now it’s time to heat things up, and nothing really says summer like outdoor cooking. A perfectly grilled steak will have your meat-loving guests happy. For those who would like a lighter meal, try tilapia with a mango salsa. A fish and fruit pairing has a light summer feel to it.
