Get Intimate with A Unique Micro Wedding Catering Menu

As more couples embrace the intimacy of micro weddings, Blend Catering is here to ensure that your special day is nothing short of extraordinary. Micro weddings are all about celebrating with your nearest and dearest in a personalized and meaningful way. And just because your guest list is smaller doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the details. In fact, it’s an opportunity to focus on the things that truly matter to you and your partner.

Planning the menu for your micro wedding is a key aspect that can be tailored to reflect your personalities and preferences. Here are some tips and ideas to help you create a culinary experience that is as unique as your love story.

Revamp Cocktail Hour with Appetizers

While the traditional cocktail hour may look a bit different at a micro wedding, it’s still a chance to indulge in delicious bites and drinks. Consider passing mini appetizers that are easy to eat and don’t require utensils. Items like antipasto skewers, chicken skewers, and one-bite wonders can add a touch of elegance to your reception. For seated receptions, opt for creatively plated appetizers or interactive food stations to keep the culinary experience engaging.

Get Creative with Your Wedding Menu

With a smaller guest list, you have the freedom to get creative with your menu. Work with your caterer to incorporate signature dishes or unique cuisines that reflect your tastes and personalities. Consider serving gourmet dishes or regional favorites that you and your partner love. Whether it’s a nod to a special restaurant or a childhood favorite, let your menu tell a story that is uniquely yours.

Buffet Style with a Twist

Buffet-style menus can still be a hit at micro weddings, but with a few adjustments. Customize the buffet experience by offering a variety of dishes that cater to different tastes and dietary preferences. With fewer plates to prepare, gourmet, top-notch dishes become even more attainable. Consider wowing your guests with something they wouldn’t ordinarily have at a wedding. As you’re thinking of specialty menu items, tap into regional cuisines that you and your partner absolutely love, or celebrate with a nod to the restaurant where you had your first date. The possibilities are endless and can be complete custom to you.

Consider Unique Wedding Deserts

We have noticed a trend where couples seem to be either forgoing traditional, tiered white wedding cakes or adding additional deserts along side them. And the list of unique desert possibilities gets even longer with a micro wedding. Consider serving miniature desserts, a flight of deserts or even a coursed out dessert menu. From mini cheesecakes to macarons, there are endless possibilities to satisfy your sweet tooth. Do not forget to replace your cake cutting with something equally as fun for you as a couple!

Custom Wedding Cocktails

At a micro wedding, it’s all about finding the best menu options for you and your guests. Signature couples cocktails are always fun, and with a micro wedding, chances are, you already know what everyone’s favorite drink of choice is. With this info in mind, you can create a personalized drink menu that caters to your guests’ preferences, whether it’s signature cocktails, split bottles of wine, or pre-batched cocktails. Consider adding custom labels or mini bottles for a touch of sophistication. Don’t be afraid to ask your guests for their drink preferences in advance to ensure everyone has their favorite libation in hand.
