Nothing is as rich, as diverse, and as fascinating as Southern cuisine. Every state in the South has its own specialties, and even within the same states, you will find tastes as different as you would in Europe, from one country to another.

What are some of the Southern snacks you could include in your New Orleans wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on if you want to steal some inspiration for your Big Day.

  • Corn bread with corn relish. This yells “Southern” from miles away – and even someone who didn’t grow up with it will definitely appreciate it. A snack that can take the form of finger foods served during the cocktail hour or just as an entrée for the main menu – but more than anything, a snack people will want the recipe for!
  • Butter moon pies with chocolate and peanuts. The combination between sweet and savory is a staple of the Southern cuisine – so you will definitely love this. A sweet treat meant to energize your guests and make them take another round on the dance floor!
  • Pimento cheese. Who doesn’t love good cheese? This cheesy Southern treat is bound to attract guests to it again and again, so make sure to stock up and have plenty for second and third servings as well. Remember, the secret to amazing pimento cheese lies in the quality of the ingredients!
  • Spiced cheese straws. Another cheesy snack born in the South, cheese straws can receive a whole new set of “clothing” if they’re dressed up with spices like cardamom, fennel seed, and so on. Try out your favorites and don’t be afraid to experiment – then, once you’ve nailed the perfect recipe, be sure to keep it under lock and use it for your wedding snacks. We bet guests will want to steal your secret!
  • Fried chicken. We know we’ve mentioned this before, but truth be told, it’s the ultimate (and probably one of the most famous) Southern foods. Delicious and irresistible, it can take elegant forms for your wedding, so it can definitely be incorporated into pretty much any type of event, regardless of formality.
