You want to thank your guests and show how much you appreciate them coming and food is one great way to do that.
Help your guests enjoy what they eat and drink even more - and make your wedding more memorable and meaningful - with these 5 tips:
There is great beer all over the country now so choose to support a smaller, local brewery at your wedding. It is a great conversation starter and adds more character to your wedding. Plus, you are supporting the local economy.
You can make one of your main dish options a vegetarian meal or just opt for a few more non-meat appetizers. Less meat means less environmental impact without sacrificing on taste (who doesn’t love an amazing cheese spread or fresh bruschetta in the summer?).
Ask your venue or caterer if they can incorporate some local or organic food into your menu. Not only is this great for local farms and the planet, but you’ll also get the freshest ingredients. Check out Chive Sustainable Event Design & Catering if you're in Massachusetts!
I am a HUGE chocolate fan and nothing makes me happier than a chocolate wedding favor I can nibble on my way home.
You can choose a full size chocolate bar, chocolate minis, and don’t forget to look for bulk discounts!
Send your guests home with one last warm memory (and the caffeine they need!) with organic & Fair Trade coffee and tea. There are so many delicious options and this is an easy and small ask you can make of your caterer. You can even have them put up a little card to show this last piece of the wedding is helping farmers and families around the world.
