Biggest Food And Drink Wedding Trends For 2019

February 1, 2019

the rise of the cocktail hour - Put a drink in the guest’s hand and they’re happy and this year, there will be more bespoke and themed cocktails, as well as fresh ingredients like edible flowers and fresh herbs.

Edible Displays - Expect to see more macaron towers and doughnut walls this year.

Edible wedding favors - While some brides and grooms opt out of this tradition, others are using it to treat guests to a snack. Freshly baked cookies are a popular choice and sugared almonds are trendy again.

Food trucks - These aren’t anything new, but more couples are forgoing a sit down dinner and opting for this informal crowd-pleasing option instead.

Grazing tables - No need for waiters passing canapés when you’ve got grazing tables, where guests can serve themselves from the modern buffet of plates of charcuterie, homemade breads and quiches.

Textured and hand-painted wedding cakes - Naked cakes are so over, now it’s all about contemporary designs, like geode and textured stone cakes, shimmering metallic cakes, hand-painted floral cakes, and edible lace.

Whole menus going vegan - With more folks ditching meat and dairy, more couples are hosting vegetarian and vegan receptions, which won’t please the carnivore types.

Environmentally-friendly weddings - More brides and grooms are bringing sustainable and environmentally conscious living to their weddings by using ethical producers and local suppliers when they can.
