Summer weddings look stunning – but you have to try extra hard to plan things that are appropriate to the weather. For example, for the wedding venue, you need to think about how you are going to ventilate the place. Similarly, you need to think about what you are going to feed your guests.
Mostly because not every food is edible during summers. You can have the food, but it will cause trouble for something. Therefore, we have made a little guide for your assistance. Here are some ideas for a summer wedding menu.
For your appetizers, you need to serve the guests something light. It’s because if you are hosting your wedding in summer – you need to make sure the food stays intact. So, try to include things that are easy to take so you can set up a counter for it. Here are some ideas for the setup.
Fruit bar – fruits are always a great option. You can set up a fruit bar and serve them with different condiments. It will be a refreshing snack for everyone. To be on the same side – include fruits that the majority of the people like for example, mangoes.
Crab cakes – crab cakes taste delicious and they are easy to eat. So, you can include them in your appetizers.
Shrimps – This might seem silly but shrimps can make up for a good snack. To make it easier, you can stack it up on a shashlik stick. People can enjoy them while the main course arrives.
For the main course, you can include items that are liked by the majority of people. So, everyone can enjoy their food. Here are some great options.
Prawn linguini – prawns are absolutely delicious and when you mix them with noodles, it is a great combination. You can have two options, a spicy one and a nonspicy one.
