2016 Fall Wedding Food and Drink Trends

His and Hers Craft Cocktails

A lot of attention is always given to the food part of the wedding reception, but we’re going to refocus for a second on the drinks. Signature cocktails at weddings have been trendy for years now, however, his and hers craft cocktails can put a new twist on this popular idea. In addition to having the classic champagne, standard wines, and beer, personalities will be shining through with two custom mixed cocktails that represent the bride and groom’s tastes.

The Menu

The fall food trends will reflect more of the bride and groom’s personalities as well. Instead of the typical prime rib, steak, and common chicken options, newlyweds will be enjoying food that more fits them as a couple. It could be a childhood favorite, like BLT bites, or main courses that are inspired by the couples favorite foods, restaurants, and even travel locations.

Stand alone food stations are still a huge hit. These will also represent the couple’s favorites. Tacos, nachos, BBQ, and baked potato bars are just a few ideas we’ve seen recently seen. Coffee and hot chocolate full service bars, complete with baristas, is also a trend that will be very popular.
