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?

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!).

Our food warms everyone’s hearts and makes people feel good. It makes people come together and smile. Eating what we prepare for you is sure to help build great memories of warmth, friendship, and family.

There’s nothing like a Southern dinner to make people feel welcome – so you should absolutely include Southern-inspired dishes in your wedding menu!

What are some of the very best ideas? We have gathered a few of our favorites for you.

  • Rosemary chicken. We have already established that chicken is appreciated by everyone – so why not bring a hearty, flavorful chicken dish to your wedding tables? Rosemary chicken feels like coming home to a hearty dinner after a long day of work. It’s cozy and loving, and sure to be a crowd-pleaser. What more could you want for your wedding menu?
  • Meatloaf. This is old-school, yes – but doesn’t it make you recall dinners at home with your family? We bet everyone at your wedding will associate this dish with the same cozy vibe – and this is precisely what makes it perfect for a Southern wedding. Southern food is all about home, warmth, and family, and meatloaf is perfect for this!
  • Coconut shrimp and veggies in foil. There’s something magical that happens with all dishes cooked in tin foil – they soften up, their flavors are enhanced, and somehow, they end up being so satisfying that even the simplest ingredients taste amazing when brought together. Coconut shrimp is a true delight – just perfect for a warm summer evening, so all of you planning their Big Day for this summer will definitely appreciate this idea!
  • Meatball pasta. Another true comfort food classic; a classic everyone will truly love coming back to again and again. For an even heartier vibe, opt for a pasta bake instead of the classic dish – the oven will do wonders on this simple, yet eternally delicious food, bringing it to the next level of comfort and flavor!
