Fall is in the air, and if you are planning a wedding in the autumn season, you know that there are certain tastes associated with the crisp weather. Here are a few ideas for using what is in season to evoke the joys of fall in your wedding menu.
Fall Is for Apple Lovers
There is no better time of year to find high-quality apples. That means you can easily add an apple dish to any course of the menu. For example, if you are starting out your reception with a selection of cheeses for guests, why not also include an apple compote. There are plenty of cocktails based on hot apple juice or cider. Hard cider and apple brandy are also good drink options. Sliced apples can easily make their way onto most entrée plates. For desert, apple tarts, caramel apples, and apple donuts all highlight the season nicely.
Don’t Forget the Pumpkin Spice
Okay, so you may not want pumpkin spice everything since that seems to creep in already this time of year, but pumpkin certainly is another way to enhance the autumn feel of a wedding. Even if you just offer pumpkin flavored coffee drinks or a pumpkin dessert, this is a sure crowd pleaser.
