Catering Trends for Fall Weddings

Wedding food doesn’t have to be formulaic; this is especially true during the fall, when you can choose from a wealth of fresh ingredients and menu ideas. Here at Saint Germain Catering we are coming up with unique, palate-pleasing ways to satisfy our guests’ appetites. With the weather cooling, your guests will be craving rich, intensely flavored meals, so think beyond the salad-and-meat entree combo. Check out these ideas.

For Starters

Experience is showing that couples are moving away from the standard salad as a first course. One popular alternative is soups — their warmth and heartiness make them a natural fit for fall. If you do opt for a salad appetizer, add a hearty, seasonal element to your greens with aged cheddar, roasted walnuts, pumpkin seeds, grapes, or figs. If you want to have your salad and eat your soup too, serve each guest mini-portions of both.

Main Course

For entrees, you can’t go wrong with the classics — filet, roasted chicken, and salmon will always be crowd pleasers. Consider a less typical red meat offering, like a rack of lamb or a cut of veal. Cornish hens are a stylish, unexpected alternative to chicken. An option that’s more homely but still hearty and surprising: potpies filled with chicken and fall vegetables like carrots, turnips, onions, and leeks.

 

Sweet Tooth

Although dessert bars with more sweet selections than most stomachs can handle have been popular over the last few years, wedding desserts are moving in a more subtle direction. American-style desserts like apple tarts, pie a la mode, and gooey brownies smothered in coffee ice cream will fit the bill. If you crave a more elegant option, serve “dessert trios,” so each guest is presented with three miniature sweets on a single platter. One selection that fits the fall season perfectly: caramel-coated lady apples on cinnamon sticks, a fresh little doughnut suspended on a demitasse spoon over a shot glass of milk, and small-scale apple pie a la mode.
