One of the most important aspects of a wedding (other than the vows of course) is the food.
As more and more couples are trying to make their wedding unique, and sometimes in crazy off the wall ways, I went looking for ideas on how to be different, yet still remain classy.
I was on a wedding blog the other day and came across a few ideas for favours and buffets that I thought were very creative…and also looked very yummy!
Cookies & Milk
What a great idea this is instead of your typical late night buffet. Serve shots of cold milk (you could have strawberry and chocolate flavoured ones too) and pair them up with homemade cookies – perhaps the Grooms favourite? Serve this idea either laid out on a table with some cookies wrapped ‘to-go’ with the recipe attached on a nice label with ribbon, or have this comforting treat served to guests on a tray (pictured) – only be sure each guest gets a napkin with their homemade treat.
This idea would also be a good one if children are at the reception. What child wouldn’t like some milk & cookies before they are shuttled home to bed by mom and dad?
Ice Cream Sundae Bar
This would be fantastic for not only a summer wedding, but for the theme of a Bridal Shower. It’s a little messier than some regular dessert/snack options, but can be personalized by your guests by what they top their ice cream with! Offer all kinds of different toppings – ranging from the classic like coloured sprinkles to the not so classic like pretzel pieces. Display all of the toppings in nice dishes and be sure to have title tags for each so your guests know what they’re eating. A sure way to eliminate some of the mess would be to have your venue
pre-scoop ice cream into dishes for your guests.
What a fantatsic idea….and don’t forget the cherry on top!
When I saw this idea I wanted to whip out my fondue set and try it right then! What a wonderful idea! I think this idea would be best suited as a dessert, where each table would have their own fondue set and goodies needed to make the yummy summer treat! Can you imagine the sight of all of your guests huddled around the centre of their tables making s’mores? Fantastic pictures!
Along with this treat, you have to have wet naps available as it could get a little messy.
There are plenty of different ways to have your favourite dessert or snack available at your wedding for your guests to enjoy along with you.
Think about some of the things you enjoyed as a child, or about treats you shared with your fiance during your courtship. Almost any idea can be brought to life these days. Use your imagination!
