Fall Wedding Catering for Bay Area Foodies

Wedding Catering Should Take Advantage of Fall Produce

Although we’re entering the heart of the summer, autumn beckons around the corner with its colorful leaves, brisk breezes and cool nights. Especially in the beautiful Bay Area, fall can be the perfect time to host a wedding. Here’s a nice plus: if you’re a foodie planning a wedding during this season, your catering options are virtually limitless.

Below are some ideas to consider as you game out your wedding menu.

1. Autumn-Themed Appetizers.

Consider soups that include squash or other fall vegetables. If you would rather serve a salad, opt for salads with fall toppings, such as cranberries or pumpkin seeds. The best event catering companies should be familiar with these types of dishes and be able to create flexible and even spontaneous menus. Just be sure to taste samples before you make your final choices!

2. Entrees.

For fall weddings, you can choose to serve traditional entrees, such as salmon, steak or chicken. However, you can also opt for something more “harvest season oriented,” such as Cornish hens or veal. Serve the meal with a fall-friendly side, such as candied carrots, cinnamon apples or sweet potatoes.

3. Desserts.

As you consider the dessert options provided by your wedding catering company, borrow flavors and ideas from the season. For instance, delight your guests’ palates with seasonal pie, pumpkin cheesecake and candy apples.
