The kind of food you serve has as much to do with the overall effect of your wedding as the décor and apparel. Your ultimate goal should be a beautiful and fun wedding that represents you and your soon-to-be spouse. That being said, try to bring some of your own style into your wedding menu - whether you're a casual and laid-back individual or a connoisseur of the finest! Here are some ideas for menus that suit your style.
Fun, Adventurous and Free Spirited -
If you're the fun type and want a wedding menu that suits your style, why not take it to the grill? Try lemon and rosemary grilled salmon with colorful vegetable skewers. Add fresh lemonade or sweet iced-tea and key lime pie with coffee for dessert! You can have a lot of fun with the grill when planning your wedding menu. If you'll be using a caterer, speak to him or her about your ideas and they can help you add your sense of adventure to an elegant, delicious wedding menu.
Although this type of menu would go perfectly with any style wedding, it would be perfect for a beach or tropical themed wedding that is more casual than formal.

Laid Back, Relaxed and Comfortable -
If you're the type of bride-to-be who enjoys delicious comfort foods, there's no reason you couldn't create a menu that suits your style. One of the best menus to suit your style for comfort food is herb-roasted chicken, peppered peas and potatoes, buttered rolls and warm apple pie. Serve chilled coconut punch with your entree and coffee or tea for dessert. Comfort foods can be wonderful at a wedding and chances are your guests will love them too!
Again, this menu would be great for any sort of wedding, but an intimate and casual wedding with friends would suit this menu perfectly. From garden themed weddings to outdoor, picnic-type weddings and similar styles, this menu will fit wonderfully.
Elegant, Fancy and Beautiful -
If your style includes the best, fanciest and most beautiful - you can easily incorporate this into menus that suit your preferences. From caviar and wine to steamed scallops, spinach salad with vinaigrette dressing and shrimp risotto - there are many options when it comes to this type of menu. Table settings would be formal, with folded linen napkins, crystal and elegant serving dishes.
This sort of menu would fit a more formal church wedding very well and is sure to impress your guests.
The key to finding the perfect wedding menu is determining what suits your style best! Choose what YOU want and remember that this is your big day.
