Long gone are the days of potluck style weddings where Aunt Susan and her friends are in charge of the meal plan. Today’s couples are involved more than ever in the planning of their special day’s cuisine. Whether it is a buffet that your guests can’t stay away from, or a plated meal that looks as good as it tastes; your event’s meal has no reason to not make a statement!

We’ve put together 5 of our favorite ways to help your food wow the crowd:

1. Edible Art

The orchid displayed in this photo is not from the florist, it’s from the chef! Edible decor on your food is certain to be a hit!

2. Make a Display!

You can really put your buffet on display by adding various floral and fruits as decor, using unique granite slabs, cubes and baskets as risers, or even incorporating your centerpieces’ lanterns and vases in the mix! And BONUS: Main Event Productions includes the decor as a part of their packages!

3. Adorable Signage

Don’t leave your guests wondering what that “yummy little cake bite thing was” they just ate; label it! Whether you use a chalkboard, framed print, individual food labels, or even a printed menu at their place setting; including them in on the secret of all your fabulous cuisine picks will leave them informed and full!

4. Serve Guests with a Friendly Face

Hiring a great team to make your special day the best it can be is all too important. A Catered Affair takes the time needed to make sure their events are staffed with friendly and smiling faces who are eager to make your guests and you feel right at home!

5. Share Your Story

This couple not only personalized their main dish for their wedding but they also brought their guests inside the beginning of their story together. Can you just imagine the “awe’s” as they filled their plates?!
