The Latest Trends in Wedding Catering

the latest trends in June wedding catering According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, we must “live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air…” For some, that is the ideal way to live, a lifestyle to cherish. However, that is not always the case, as we are too busy dealing with jobs, bills and family. Summer weddings are a much-needed respite from all of this. In a way, these events give us an opportunity to live in the sunshine, swim the sea and drink the wild air. Prepare yourselves, because we are approaching the middle of June and that means one thing: summer weddings are just around the corner…


Although high-quality catering is always a constant at any wedding, you are likely to find different trends from year to year. What may be popular one wedding season may be completely out of style in another. With a new season of weddings upon us, it’s time to take a look at some of the most popular catering trends so far in 2013.


Many people have been opting for brunch options rather than lunch or dinner foods. Because throwing a wedding during the day can often be cheaper, a combination of both lunch and breakfast catering is the perfect choice for those on a budget. In some cases, people are even choosing breakfast foods for dinner, such as fancy omelets.


Brunch is like the Holy Grail of meals, often talked about, but never really experienced. Whether it is a group of friends discussing Sunday brunch plans while in the midst of Saturday night drinking or a talked-about family meet up for Mimosas and syrup-smothered cornbread that never materializes, there is something alluring about brunch. In terms of catering, that allure is trending.


Some are apprehensive about going to weddings. For one, the drinks will flow and the food will be plentiful. It can be quite a caloric affair, unhealthy even. That is changing. Another recent trend is having fresh, organic foods at a wedding. More now than ever before, people are conscious of the types of foods they are eating. With an organic option, wedding guests can feel confident that they are getting a healthy, yet delicious meal.


One of the more unusual catering trends that has been showing up this year is food trucks, especially with younger people. Often popular in street fairs and festivals, you may not think of a wedding as an ideal place for a food truck. However, they make things simple and convenient, and they are perfect for large outdoor events.
