We’re one week away from 2015 and what a better way to ring in the new year than with the top 5 things we’re most excited about in 2015. Our #4 favorite trend for 2015 is…

 

From food trucks, farm to table, family style dining, fusion cuisine, comfort food, make your own stations, dessert buffets to late night bites, couples are customizing menus to reflect their tastes.

Food Carts/Trucks

For couples having an outdoor or casual wedding, multiple food trucks offer more options than the traditional three course meal. Guests can either serve themselves or have waitstaff handle the orders.  For couples with indoor wedding or formal affairs don’t fret most food trucks have smaller carts, a delicious option for cocktail hour. Check out Roaming Hunger or Flavor Please to find food trucks in your area.

Farm to Table

Most caterers are now working with or own local farms ensuring everything on the menu is at peak freshness and organic.  Besides cutting down on food costs, seasonal produce allows for truly unique cuisine packed with flavor.

Late Night Snacks

Hours of dancing burns off dinner leaving your guests craving for some grub.  Talk to your caterer or your favorite local greasy spoons for some tasty finger foods.  Pizza, empanadas, soft pretzels, popcorn, cookies, cupcakes or sliders with gourmet french fries are just a few late night snacks to treat your guests as they head out for the night.  They’ll be grateful not having to find a 24 hour diner or drive thru.
