This could result from what many call “wedding planning fatigue.” Let’s face it, sometimes, these decisions can be overwhelming, and even the quintessential foodie can run out of ideas. However, you can stay ahead of the game by following a few simple wedding menu rules. Please keep reading to find out the rules, and we have a few tantalizing menu morsels you can choose from.

Simple Wedding Menu Rules

Seasonality: Incorporating seasonal ingredients can help create a delicious and memorable menu for your guests.

Personal preferences: Consider your tastes, favorite foods, and any family recipes or cultural dishes you would like to include.

Budget: Be sure to consider the cost of the ingredients and the cost of hiring a caterer or renting equipment.

Guest dietary restrictions: Be sure to accommodate any guests with dietary restrictions or allergies.

Theme or style of the wedding: The food should match the theme or style of the wedding, whether formal or casual, traditional or modern.

Here are a few ideas for your wedding menu:

Orange Chipotle Glazed Salmon

Salmon dishes are best for a wedding in late spring or early fall. Late spring through early fall is a popular season for weddings as the weather is mild, flowers are in bloom, and the days are getting longer. This will pair well with popular spring wedding colors, including pastels, pale pink, lilac, and pale blue, and popular flowers, including cherry blossoms, tulips, and daffodils. Spring is an excellent time for a wedding as it is not too hot or cold, and the Pan Seared Salmon Filet reminds everyone that nature is in full bloom.

The baked salmon steaks are glazed with house-made tangy orange chipotle sauce.

Chicken Thighs & Shishito Peppers

This is your wedding, and why not have it be a reflection of who you are? If spicy is your personal preference, then this dish is for you. Some people may find the sensation of eating spicy food to be pleasant. Some research suggests that eating spicy food may also have health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and potentially helping with weight loss. The most important thing is to choose something you like. After all, it’s your big day, and you should treat yourself.

Tangy Pear & Bleu Cheese Salad

You can always go right with a good salad, and, more than likely; it will fit within your budget. These days a salad on the wedding menu is a must-have.

Enjoy Spring mixed greens topped with fresh pears, red onions, blue cheese, and house-made candied walnuts paired with a house vinaigrette.

Broccoli with Crispy Onions & Chili Oil

Broccoli with Crispy Onions & Chili Oil is a vegetarian option for guests with dietary restrictions. We must remember the number of vegans is increasing in our inner circles. As a result, vegan and vegetarian dishes are becoming more of a traditional part of the menu. Your more health-conscious guest gets to be a little naughty, and you get to meet everyone’s dietary needs. Create a memorable wedding dinner moment with this yummy veggie dish.

A delicious mix of Sautéed broccoli florets in a sweet chili garlic sauce, topped with crispy onions, and drizzled with oil are all included.

Cilantro Lime Chicken

You can always go with a Cilantro infused dish if you want a theme. Many ancient practitioners used cilantro for prosperity, wealth, and immortality. If you combine this with something old and something new, you create a unique theme. Think of it as an edible novelty. Add this cilantro-marinated chicken smothered in corn succotash to your entrée list, and you won’t regret it.

Remember the wedding dinner rules covered above: seasonality, personal preference, budget, guest dietary restrictions, and the theme or style of your wedding.
