3 Tips for Spring and Summer Wedding Menus

With the warmer weather upon us, it is the perfect time of year to say, “I do,” with the one you love. Here are a few tips for creating a wedding menu that can keep your guests cool.

  • Keep everyone hydrated – You don’t want anyone passing out on your big day. Since alcoholic beverages actually dry a person out, sticking to a cocktail hour may be a good way to ensure no one overindulges. Then you can offer spa water, fresh squeezed lemonade, and flavored punch for the rest of the evening.
  • Cold appetizers – Instead of hot appetizers, you can go with cold hors d’oeuvres. There are plenty of ways to keep your apps classy and easy to eat with one hand without warming them up. Try things like tomato, basil, and mozzarella skewers. Peel and eat shrimp are perfect little bites that can be dipped in a chilled cocktail sauce.
  • Summer entrées – For lighter meals, fish and fruit are a delightful pairing. If you want to close with a little heavier fare, try something like grilled steaks, which can give you the feel of a summer barbecue along with the elegance of a wedding.
