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!
