If you ask the party-planning experts, they’ll say that a common thread amongst reception fare trends is the opportunity to personalize the experience for both the newlyweds and their guests. Cake alternatives include gourmet cheeses, doughnuts and French macaroons, while main courses are trending toward family-style service, finger foods, and brunch! Here are a few others to consider:
- “Great Gatsby” Theme with Champagne Tower
- Cheese Wheels
- Edible Party Favors
- Curated Food & Drink Pairings
