There is something to be said for southern hospitality and it doesn’t solely pertain to a physical location—it can be as simple as taking a warm and welcoming approach to the food that you want to serve at your wedding.
Couples are no longer thinking about seven-course meals as much as they are about sustaining their guests throughout the entire night with a myriad of hors d’oeuvres, raw bars, specialty stations, petit-sized entrées, dessert tables and late night snacks.
You see, it is more about creating a culinary journey that will take your guests from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. without reprieve, and that will also be conducive for anything from a more casual lounge-style reception to something more formal or sit-down in nature.
Whether you are working with a venue’s on-site catering team like the esteemed Mandarin Oriental Miami or hiring a caterer for an off-site wedding like Atlanta’s acclaimed trio—Sun in my Belly Catering + Event Design, A Legendary Event, or Bold American Catering—your menu should be customizable and your options endless. Remember that while this is a wedding (which evokes certain expectations), the bottom line is to celebrate love with good food, good wine and good friends.
