The 2020 pandemic threw the social world into disarray, and as the world enters the post-COVID phase, weddings are back with a vengeance. The new 2023 “wedding boom” is in full swing, and couples are eager to embrace new trends and fashions when it comes to designing their ideal nuptial day.
Some of the food-related trends that are showing up in weddings in 2023 include:
As an extension of the “locavore” trend, many couples are choosing food that is local to the region as a way of maximizing freshness and quality while minimizing the environmental impact and celebrating their home area. In many cases, friends and family will be coming from other parts of the country, so choosing to “go local” will help showcase your home region’s strengths.
Cocktails are a beautiful medium for fresh, quality ingredients, exotic tastes, and unique ingredients. The wedding couple can use cocktails (or mocktails) to communicate their life vision and artistic tendencies.
When it comes to wedding cakes, what’s old is new again. More and more couples are opting for cakes that look like those from their grandparents’ wedding photos with throwback icing colors and Lambeth-style piping, which consists of multiple rows of intricately piped details.
Haute Cuisine Menus
Most of us are accustomed to very typical wedding food choices when it comes to food. In 2023, more couples are looking for food inspiration with unusual fresh ingredients, cultural fusion, and a fresh take on the traditional wedding spread. When it’s time to look for a caterer, ensure that you find one that is willing to work with you to design a menu that will wow your family and friends.
While chances are good you’ll still want a wedding cake, it’s a great idea to go further than cake and create a station that serves small, bite-sized indulgent treats such as petit-fours, handmade chocolates, tiny cheesecake bites or beautiful, fruit-themed desserts.
