Julia Child said it best: “People who love to eat are always the best people.” If you and your significant other share a fond appreciation for all things food, why not let the culinary arts inspire your wedding day? From trendy desserts to edible decor accents, there’s no shortage of foodie wedding fun to be had.

Delicious Decor

Food is most certainly an art form, so why not treat it as such? Rather than flowers alone, let arrangements of herbs or intriguing produce serve as original centerpieces. Looking to make more of a whimsical statement? A donut wall (above) is an eye-catching and original way to serve up dessert.

Impress with Hors d'Oeuvres

Cocktail hour is the perfect time to set the stage for the rest of the wedding’s provisions. If you want to ensure your guests’ first bites are nothing short of spectacular, pay special attention to your earliest offerings. Taking inspiration from a local farmer’s market, this beautifully displayed charcuterie station is a sight for hungry eyes.

Host Your Favorite Food Truck

There are now more options than ever to enjoy a killer meal, thanks to the rise of street food. With eateries no longer bound by brick and mortar, there’s no reason why you can’t ask your go-to food truck to pull right up to your wedding venue.

Serve Up Some Late-Night Nosh

When the midnight munchies hit, treat your guests with a sweet snack, like the crowd favorite, churros. You’ll bring smiles to guests’ faces, all while keeping the energy on the dance floor up.

Gourmet Give-Aways

From artisan olive oil to local honey, your wedding favors are a great way to share the foodie love with your friends and family. Your guests will look back on your big day as they make meals of their own. Be sure to personalize the labels for an extra heartfelt touch.
