:: Menu Items For Summer Weddings ::
Whether indoors or out, summertime weddings will have more of an appeal for your guests if you plan out a refreshing Summer menu. Here are MRSter’s Top Five Menu items for Summer Weddings:
1 :: Cool Appetizers :: If you are serving an appetizer, consider refreshing servings of summer melons, shrimp on ice, or a cool gazpacho. Ceviche is another cool option, as are prosciutto and cheese wraps.
2 :: Summer salads :: Have you ever tasted a watermelon salad? Super yummy. Tomato, mozzarella and basil drizzled with a vinaigrette (Caprese) is equally delicious. A tropical salad with fruit and lettuce, or a cold pasta salad are also good choices.
3 :: Think Skewers :: For your main course, skewers are an excellent option. They can be made from many different ingredients, from simple to complex, with various meat and veggie combinations. If you have any vegetarian guests, skewers are easily made to accommodate.
4 :: Delectable Desserts :: If you choose to serve a dessert in addition to your wedding cake, consider a light sorbet or Italian Ice. Berries with a light cream topping is also a good choice.
5 :: Best Beverages :: The old standby ice tea, is of course a great option. Lemonade (without excessive sugar) is also a refreshing summer drink. Consider also serving iced coffee and practically any kind of spritzer. Consult your bartender to create your traditional signature cocktail too.
