It’s April and that means the beginning of wedding season. (Yippee! More pictures and sights for me to see.)

Today’s Wedding Wednesday feature focuses on cuisine. The variety of foods highlighted can be served at any wedding function — a bridal shower, engagement party, reception, etc.

I believe the food you select for any wedding event should reflect your personality or food that you like. Yes, you want to provide options that all your guests will eat and enjoy — that is why bars and stations work so well. They allow people to eat what they want, how they want it. Food bars and stations are also fun because there are so many options.

If you have a have a favorite food truck, reach out to them and see about the costs for catering events. Food that is fun will be remembered and talked about… Trust me!

Below are some ideas that you can incorporate into the cuisine for your wedding events. The links below include sources or recipes, so click and find out!
