Creative Wedding Catering Ideas

If you’re looking for creative catering concepts for your wedding, we’ve got some eye candy just for you! The food at a wedding has become an integral part of your big day, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the budget. You can introduce some amazing DIY elements to help you save, and wow your guests at the same time.

His & Hers {A few of your Favourite Things}

A cute idea for injecting some of your favourite things into your wedding catering is having a ‘His & Hers’ plate with four small tasting portions of a few of your favourite foods. Another wedding catering idea we love is selecting a Bride & Groom’s cocktail as welcome drinks, or for while your guests wait for you to have your photographs taken.

By each picking a cocktail you can actually cut down on costs if you selectively pick the mix & alcohol choice - and pre-buy them yourselves. Cocktails are a beautiful addition to any drinks table. You could also freeze edible flowers in ice to add that something special.

Say goodbye to Celery Sticks {Craft Beer & Wholesome Bites}

Instead of high-end canapes, why not try something a little more hungry-man-friendly and go for gastro pub bites like mini-burgers, tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches or even a Taco Bar? These hearty favourites can be given a modern approach by scaling them down and using beautiful presentation on things like wooden boards or antique mirrors, and they’re also more budget-friendly than finicky foodie bites. Craft beer has become a trendy alternative to the traditional champagne option - you can find out more about local suppliers here.

How sweet it is {Gourmet Cupcakes and Cake Pops}

A wedding cupcake cake (a tower of cupcakes instead of individual slices) is increasingly popular, it saves a lot of slicing time, and can be doubled as a wedding favour. We especially love yummy Cake Pops, and they are an amazing addition to any dessert table.

Chalkboard Crazy {Rustic Charm}

We’re big fans of labelled snacks. There are few things more frustrating then spending seconds of your life wondering what exactly was in that mini-quiche - and why it tastes so ridiculously delicious. A round of applause to those who are wondering why not simply ask the waiter, and yes, we do. But the undeniable rustic charm of a chalkboard platter is so much more appealing. And you can get your girls or a family member to DIY, perfect alternative to plastic trays or expensive catering hire costs! Simply buy some cheap board from your local hardware and use chalkboard paint for the perfect wedding canape tray.

catering ideas for your wedding

Say Cheese {Not your Normal Cheesecake}

With the cost of wedding cakes reaching tens of thousands, the clever Bride might go for something more savoury, like a delicious cheese stack with fresh fruits, homemade artisan breads and crackers. Yum.

Cocktail Hour {Mixology Magic}

Mixology and the art of creating the perfect pretty cocktail is seriously cool - not only do you get a delicious drink, it looks amazing and opens doors to lots of creative ideas! Use your wedding theme and colours to create a signature cocktail for your wedding day, or follow our His & Hers idea and have you and your partner each design a drink.

We are in love with these mini tequilas paired with little tacos. Let your imagination run wild and come up with tasty pairings for different shooters!
