There’s only one  rule to wedding food: make sure your guests are never hungry or thirsty. After that is taken care of you can pretty much play jazz when you and your caterer are deciding on food.

When you hire a personal chef, you’ll be able to talk with them about what type of wedding you want to have and they will be able to offer food suggestions to fit your personal tastes. There are so many options when it comes to wedding food, even on a small budget you will still be able to hire a chef that will whip up something fantastic for your special day.

Here are some of the biggest food trends you’ll be seeing this Spring.

Meaningful Food

Weddings are about creating memories and also about sharing family history. Foods that are steeped in family tradition a re becoming very popular in almost every course. Childhood favorites like bangers and mash or fish and chips are making a lot of appearances as are cookie recipes that grandma used to make. Another trend is to do  his and hers courses where each course represents family favorites from each side of the family.


These small bites still reign supreme at weddings, for an informal dining experience or as a first course at a more formal affair. A few popular ideas are mini cones of fish and chips, or mini ice cream cones for a desert canapé.

Brides and Brunch

Brunch weddings are on the rise this year. These weddings are not only cheaper, but they are also really on trend. Pancake bars, omelet stations, mimosas, and Bloody Mary bars are fun ways to do a brunch wedding.

Food Bars

Food stations have always been popular, but this year caterers and private chefs are taking it up a notch on the cool ladder with food bars. What’s a food bar? Akin to a traditional food station guests still serve themselves, but at a food bar there is a theme. Mini taco bars, slider bars, and gourmet French fry bars are all popular right now.

If you are planning a wedding this year, keep these trends in mind when you meet with your personal chef and they will help turn your foodie dreams into a reality.
