Plan a Superb Dessert Table for Your Southern Wedding

Leave a comment


Few things are more pleasing than a bunch of sweet treats arranged in a stylish, beautiful way – and that is probably why dessert tables have grown to be almost a must at weddings. You have all the reasons to want to include a candy bar at your wedding too – and if you do decide on it, you surely want to make it look amazing.

How do you incorporate a gorgeous, delicious one into your Southern wedding, though? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Give Southern desserts a classy twist. You don’t have to go too much over the top – spinning traditional Southern desserts to make them more “wedding-worthy” can actually help you create an absolutely stunning dessert table. For instance, you could serve classic banana pudding in glass cones and make them look really nice.
  • Pay attention to the table décor. If you want your dessert table to actually look Southern, make sure to include elements that speak about country-chic beauty and Southern staples. For example, you could decorate a simple vintage-looking vanity mirror table with greenery and place your desserts there – we guarantee people will just love it!
  • You can also make them themed. If you don’t want to have a classic wedding dessert table, you can make a themed one. For instance, you could create a really nice pie table with different types of Southern pies (and use the aforementioned tip to decorate this special wedding element).

How to Plan a Genuine Southern Wedding Menu

Leave a comment

Having a Southern wedding is, most of the times, a lot different than many other types of weddings up North. One thing is common, though: food will always be a huge element in a wedding, regardless of whether it’s held in the South or not.

How do you plan a genuine, delicious Southern wedding menu? We have some tips for you – so read on and inspire yourself:

  • In the South, people put a lot of accent on their family relationships – and many times, spending quality time with your family and friends means eating great food. This adds even more importance to your wedding menu – so don’t be afraid to make it very personal (e.g. using a particular ham stuffed biscuits recipe you loved in your family).
  • Not all Southern weddings are alike, though. They can differ a lot from one state to another, and they can even display huge differences from one region to another. Of course, there will always be foods that are considered to be avatars of the Southern cuisine – but every region has something special about it, so you should definitely include this in your wedding menu.
  • For instance, weddings in the Mountain South area are likely to serve Apple Stack Cakes. Traditionally, guests brought the layers for the cake at the wedding and the bride’s family added them to the cake each time a new guest would arrive at the wedding.
  • Southern food is so diverse precisely because it has been influenced by world-renowned cuisines – such as Greek, Italian, Africa, or Irish. If your guests are not from the South, they will be delighted to taste these amazing, unique dishes!

Top 3 Appetizers to Serve at Your Spring Outdoor Wedding

Leave a comment

Winter may still be very much present in our lives, but a lot of you are probably planning a spring or summer wedding. Of course, everybody knows food is a very important element in the entire Big Day – but what are some of the most delicious South-inspired appetizers you could serve at a spring outdoor wedding? We have some ideas for you – read on and find out more.

  • Spinach Dip. If you are looking for a healthy dip to add to your appetizers’ menu, spinach is one of the go-to options for a classic Southern wedding. For a less-than-classic, but absolutely delicious twist, add sour cream and sweet onions to your dip mix – it will go so well with all the fresh veggies spring will bring along!
  • Antipasto platter. An all-time classic as well, the antipasto platter can be a really amazing appetizer to place on the tables at your wedding reception. Of course, you could add a couple of new twists (such as rolling goat cheese through fresh parsley for a fresh and spring-like look) – but the secret to a finger-licking delicious antipasto platter will always be the quality and freshness of your ingredients, so remember to invest in that!
  • Pickled tomatoes. Fresh, delicious, and more than suitable for a spring wedding, pickled tomatoes can become wedding material when you choose the right variety (e.g. baby tomatoes, instead of the larger ones). Of course, serving them in a nice-looking bowl or will make them look even more appealing to your guests!
