Planning a summer wedding reception

Congratulations on getting engaged! If you are planning a summer wedding, you can incorporate fresh ideas and summery touches to make your wedding reception special. We talked to Andrea Correale, president and founder of Elegant Affairs, for insight on budget wedding centerpieces and the latest trends in summer wedding food.

Summer wedding food

Cursive number 1Summer wedding foodPump up the vegetables

Brides and grooms are much more health conscience than in past years. Elegant Affairs produced a vegetarian and an organic local cocktail hour menu and many young brides and grooms are opting for those healthier foods. (See photo on right: Zucchini ribbon cones with white bean parsley pate.)

Cursive number 2Rolling stations

Rolling stations at the cocktail hour have become popular. The chefs roll various food stations around the room during your wedding’s cocktail hour. This is an innovative, interactive alternative to the same old stationary antipasti table. Rolling slider bars, upscale carving stations and such are all a part of the craze.

Italian Cuisine is huge right now. Set up long reception tables filled with family style Tuscan favorites.
