How to Serve Salmon Recipes People Will Love at Your Wedding

Leave a comment

Salmon is one of the most common foods served at weddings – and truly, you have all the reasons in the world to love the idea of serving this delicious, healthy fish.  

However, you also want to make sure people won’t perceive your wedding food as “boring” in any way – you want to make sure people will love what you put on their plates.  

How to serve salmon recipes your guests will appreciate?  

We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.  

  • Oranges, honey, and salmon. Because salmon is a fatty fish, it works miraculously well with oranges and honey, which give the fish a slight tangy, sweet taste that makes it really pleasant. This dish will elevate salmon from a simple fish-based food into a truly delicious feast. Paired with veggies and risotto, this is a healthy and delicious way to prepare salmon that will be appreciated by everyone!  
  • Lemon, dill, and salmon. If you want to add a light and refreshing taste to your salmon, but you don’t want to overwhelm it, opt for a simple lemon and dill combination. It is a nice combination that compliments the fish.  This is a great, classic option for a summer wedding.  
  • Salmon croquettes. If you want to enjoy the taste of salmon as an appetizer, and not the main event, consider serving salmon croquettes. These deepfried goodies are a true delight for pretty much everyone, even people who might not be in love with salmon or fish in general.  
  • Salmon kababs. Nothing can be more perfect for a summer event, other than delicious barbecued foods – and salmon kababs are a fantastic option for combing barbeque and fish. Combined with vegetables and grilled on a stick, salmon can become the kind of comfort food you never knew you were missing. We bet all of your guests will appreciate it too! 
  • Baked potatoes with avocado and salmon. Again, this is a healthy dish – but not the kind of healthy dish people frown when seeing. This is the kind of dish that is both delicious and comforting – the kind that you can serve at your wedding and feel confident your guests will enjoy.

Amazing Southern Sandwiches You Can Actually Serve at Your Wedding 

1 Comment

Who doesn’t love a good sandwich as a snack?  

Here in the South, we take sandwiches to a whole new dimension: we make them more than just tasty snacks, we make them feel like celebrations in their own right! 

And this is precisely why sandwiches can make for a really great addition to any wedding menu – whether you serve them full-size or as mini’s or sliders, youre guaranteed to see guests happy as soon as they take a bite.  

What are some of the best sandwiches of Southern inspiration to serve at your wedding?  

We have some ideas for you – so keep reading if you want to find out more.  

  • Tomato sandwich. This might sound way too simple to be delicious – but we promise, it’s a real treat! All you need is good bread, mayo, and very, very fresh tomatoes. That’s it. The perfect snack for a summer wedding – fresh, tasty, and really easy on the stomach (just enough to provide people with some energy for a few more dances). Not only is this delish, but it’s also a great choice for your vegetarian guests too – and if you choose a vegan mayo option, your completely non-egg, non-dairy friends will be more than happy with this snack too 
  • Fried chicken and biscuit. Bringing two of the ultimate Southern foods together? Of course, all the time – and even more so on a special occasion like your wedding day! There’s something seriously satisfying about this sandwich: the texture of the biscuit and the crunchiness of the chicken go perfectly well together, creating a true feast for any foodie. While this might not be the healthiest thing out there – you only get married once, right? So why not pamper your guests with something indulgent and delicious like this?  
  • Ham and cheese biscuit. Looking for a slightly lighter version of the aforementioned chicken sandwich? Try it with ham and cheese! It sounds very simple, but with the right ham and the right cheese, your biscuits will turn into little bites of heavenly deliciousness. What more could you want?

These Southern-Inspired Cakes Are PERFECT for Your Big Day!

1 Comment

If there’s one thing that’s universally true, it’s that everyone loves cake.

Well, sure, there might be people who don’t eat cake for a lot of reasons – but even so, it is fair to assume that at least 95% of the people invited to a wedding will not only appreciate cake, but genuinely look forward towards it as well.

We know how important it is for you to create a wedding menu that is unique and unforgettable –so below, we have gathered some of the most special Southern-inspired cakes you can serve at your wedding. Read on and find your inspiration!

  • A carrot cake with exotic touches. Carrot cake is quite unique on its own, and those who have developed a taste for it know that it cannot be compared to anything else. If you want to delight your wedding guests with a cake that’s really special, opt for a carrot cake with exotic touches incorporated in it (e.g. pineapple, banana frosting, and so on).
  • Berry lemon cake. We all know just how Southern lemon cake is – and when it comes to summer weddings, it is very easy to understand why this specific type of cake takes center stage for many brides and grooms. Our suggestion? Add something a little deeper to it to make it friendlier for multiple types of guests. Blueberries can be a really nice addition, and they will work wonderfully with the citrusy touches of the lemon!
  • Fudge ice cream pie. Oh, my – this is the kind of dessert that goes beyond the usual in so many ways. The fact that it combines fudge and ice cream should tell you enough about just how opulent and sinful this cake is (in the most delicious sense of the word, of course!). Serve this as your wedding cake for a summer wedding and guests will line up for second (and even third!) servings!
  • Millionaire Pie. This vintage Southern dessert is so delicious that it is hard to understand why it has been absent for so long! Creamy, gelatinous, and fruity, the Millionaire Pie is the perfect dessert for every single type of guest!

Delish Ground Beef-Based Southern Dishes for Your Big Day

1 Comment

Your wedding day deserves to be celebrated in grand style – and what better way is there to do this, other than by bringing excellent food to the table? As you very well know it, food can actually bring people together and help them feel great – so creating a wedding menu based on hearty, delicious Southern foods is one of the best ways to make sure people at your wedding will be actually happy with the menu you provide them.  

For instance, have you thought of including a dish based on ground beef? This is an all-time favorite that can be used in so many ways that it’s impossible not to find an idea you will love.  

Following, we have gathered some of the very best and most delicious ground beef-based Southern dishes you can bring into your Big Day – so read on if you want to find out more.  

  • Ground beef casserole. We do like our casseroles, for a million reasons: they are comforting, they come in as many variations as you can imagine, and they can really create a cozy, nice atmosphere around your wedding dinner. A ground beef casserole goes straight to one’s soul – especially when the right ingredients and spices are used!  
  • Meatballs in red sauce. Served with rice or pasta, this dish is a truly hearty one. We bet people will line up for second servings on this! 
  • Chili. It’s the kind of dish that has just a bit of heat to it, and a lot of heart. Everyone makes chili differently – if you want to create a dish that reminds people of a classic bowl of chili with a twist, a chili bar with different varieties and toppings is a great option. 
  • Mini burgers. We all love a good burger, so why not upgrade a classic recipe with several variations?  Different cheeses, toppings, and even a dollop of chili on top can spice these up!  

Think some of these options are too casual for your wedding?  Remember, the right preparation and presentation can turn even the most casual dish into a fantastic experience for your wedding guests.  Just be sure to discuss the particulars of your wedding, including the theme, venue, and décor, with your caterer.

4 Ways to Serve Southern Food at Your Wedding

1 Comment

Even if you don’t want to have a traditionally Southern wedding, including at least one or two Southern dishes can make your wedding feel more like “home” and have your guests asking for seconds. 

So how can you best serve Southern food at a wedding that’s not going for a full, traditional Southern menu 

We have some tips and ideas for you – so read on and find out more. 

 

  • Take one staple dish and make it your centrepiece. If you want to celebrate the food of back home regardless of where you are, bring in the food that defines your hometown. If there are multiple dishes people associate with the place you consider home, pick the one that you love the most. This will add a personal touch to your entire wedding menu, making it really special from every point of view. Plus, be sure to let your guests know about the history of the dish.  If you had it on special occasions growing up, sharing that with your guests will make it even more special. 
  • Ask your mom to make her favorite (and your favorite). It could be a special cookie recipe, or a special casserole – whatever it is, if your mom has a family recipe you have always loved, including this in your wedding is truly one of the best things you can do if you want to make your Big Day feel really special.  Your mom will love all the compliments that she gets too!  
  • Serve a tasting portion. People absolutely love comfort foods served in small portions, so why not bring a Southern recipe into your Big Day, as a treat? For instance, if you love fried chicken, why not serve it at your wedding in mini portions? Or if you love the burgers back home with a special sauce, why not include the mini version in your Big Day? Regardless of whether or not your guests are already familiar with Southern cuisine, they are bound to love these treats.  
  • Talk to your caterer about their Southern options Even if youre not planning a full Southern wedding, your caterer may have some options and suggestions to help you incorporate one or more Southern dishes into your Big Day.  A skilled caterer may be able to adjust the menu to incorporate one or two Southern dishes regardless of whether you are having a very formal and elegant wedding or a rustic outdoor celebration Remember, food brings people together, and food has the power to tell amazing stories – so don’t be afraid to include some Southern dishes at your wedding!

Southern Veggie Casseroles Your Guests Will Fall in Love With

3 Comments

Good food is at the heart of all the major life events humans go through – and it makes sense. Eating together is more than a social act – it is an act of trust, joy, and bonding. This is why most people only eat with people they actually like. And this is precisely why your wedding menu is so important.

Of course, if you are planning a Southern wedding, you will want to make sure your menu reflects the amazing cuisine in the area – but that doesn’t always mean you have to focus on meat-based products.

There are so many veggie casseroles we all love in the South, and which would work so well with your own wedding!

Here are some suggestions, for example:

  • Corn pudding. Well, this is a real Southern food – it has the texture, the flavors, and the versatility of the South in every single ingredient. And that’s precisely what makes it such an amazing food for a wedding. If you want to offer your vegetarian friends a delicious option, this is it. They will be delighted!
  • Broccoli, rice, and cheese. Well, people might not be big fans of broccoli in general – but we guarantee that when they get a taste of this casserole, they will actually ask for more. The combination between the greenness of the broccoli, the rice, and the cheese is absolutely delicious – the kind of healthy food that nobody can say NO to!
  • Sweet potato, marshmallow, pecan. If you want to surprise your guests with something unique and really tasty, serve them a casserole made from sweet potatoes, marshmallows, and pecans. Add a few cornflakes to the mix for a bit of extra-crunch. This sweet casserole will be more than appreciated by all of your guests – vegetarian or not!
  • Onion soup casserole. Somewhere in between the classic French onion soup and a classic Southern casserole, this dish is a true delight for all senses. It’s something most of your guests don’t eat every day – something they will love so much they will ask the recipe for!

No Southern Brides and Grooms Should Ever Make These Wedding Menu Mistakes

1 Comment

Regardless of where in the South you come from (be it New Orleans, any other place in Louisiana, or any of the other beautiful Southern states), you should definitely consider planning a traditional Southern wedding. This is a wonderful way to celebrate your heritage and, of course, to offer your guests a “taste of home” as well.

What are some of the mistakes all Southern couples should avoid making when planning their wedding menu?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Bacon-everything. OK, we get it. Here in the South, we love bacon (well, pretty much everyone everywhere else does it too, right?). While it is definitely OK to serve one or two bacon-based dishes at your wedding, it is important not to overdo it. Southern cuisine is so much richer than this, and it would be a real shame if your guests didn’t get to eat something unique they haven’t had before.
  • Not including the personal touches. Every family has their own set of recipes – so why not bring that into your wedding menu to make it more special, more personal, more in tune with who you are and where you come from? Discuss with your wedding catering company and share your family recipes with them to see what can be done. Guests will be delighted to taste these foods!
  • Not spreading out the food stations. There’s a very good reason food stations are popular at Southern weddings: they offer real diversity. At the same time though, it is important not to locate the food stations too close to each other because this might cram everything and it might make guests feel skittish.
  • Serving the heavier foods early in the evening. We’ll admit it: some of the most famously Southern foods are quite heavy and they might make guests feel lazy, rather than ready to dance. This is why it’s important not to serve them at the beginning of the wedding (or at least not all of them). Spread out the heavier foods throughout the entire wedding day (and don’t forget about the late-night snack either!).
