Check out our Fall Menu Recommendations
Leaves are changing color, the air is crisp… fall wedding season is officially upon us. Perfect Setting works with countless couples during this season, and many are curious about seasonally appropriate ideas for Fall weddings.
The menu really kicks off with your cocktail hour where guests will be introduced to passed hors d’oeuvres or stationary appetizers. Fall is a season where you should incorporate rich flavors and seasonal decor to make a big impact in both menu and presentation. Luscious flavors are a critical part of the seasonal menu, and we recommend finger foods that include a smoked meat, such as a smoked salmon. For a stationary appetizer, a cheese station goes a long way, and you could offer baked brie with a fig topping on a table surrounded by pumpkins and gourds.
Recommendation: Apple & Butternut Squash Soup
*You can really kick this item up a notch with the addition of an Ommegang Pumpkin Ale
In the summer months, you see a lot of chicken and salmon served at weddings as a main course, but you want to transition those lighter options to something more appropriate, such as pork. When you think Fall, you think of heartier meals, like Shepherd’s Pie with savory accompaniments like butternut squash. There is nothing better than a warm, hearty meal served on a chilly day.
If you are planning to serve a dessert in addition to your cake, you have plenty of options. One such option would be a pie station where you present guests with a selection of seasonal favorites (apple, pumpkin, pecan etc.). Looking for bite-size delicacies? Consider allowing guests to create their own caramel apples, or even serving fondue.
