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!

Regardless of whether you want to serve a traditional wedding cake or not, adding a few sweet treats on the side is always a good idea. After all, who doesn’t love munching on delicious cookies and pastries in between a couple of dances?

What are some of the best Southern sweet treats you can serve at your wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and inspire yourself.

  • Southern Jarred Pies. It’s not a pie, it’s not a jar of cookies either – it’s something in between, just perfect for a sweet break during the wedding day. Place them on your candy bar or serve them as wedding favors and your guests will be absolutely delighted!
  • S’mores French toast. Not your regular wedding dessert, but definitely one your guests won’t forget very soon. This falls right under the “comfort food” section and blends together two of some of the most amazing sweet snacks ever invented – so what’s not to love about them? Scrumptious, tasty, and unique, these sweet bites will make your wedding feel even better!
  • Banana pudding. Bananas, pudding and nice little glasses – your guests will definitely want at least one serving of this deliciously Southern dessert. This is absolutely perfect for those of you who want to have a lovely, classy wedding, but still want to serve a dessert everyone is familiar with (and will surely love).
