Ready to discover the 5 trends for the wedding menu 2020? Go!
1. Mixology Menu
If you are looking for a fun and radical chic idea, the mixology menu could do to your case! What does it consist of? Each course of the banquet will be accompanied by cocktails prepared by bartender. Mixology is now a careful and elegant art, as well as cuisine or sommellerie.
Have your drinks served in personalized glasses and you will make your wedding unique. It will hardly be forgotten!
2. One color menu
Food and mise en place go hand in hand, you know. If you want to make your mark, why not aim at the “wow” effect of the color you choose?
So focus on foods with soft nuances and serve them on colored dishes. We propose an example. If the color chosen is Classic Blue, the ultimate wedding color of 2020, opt for delicate risottos or shrimp tartare lying on blue plates and garnished with delicate flowers.
The mise en place will not be edible, but it will give your dishes a more appetizing and charming look.
3. Menu one theme
We from Puglia di Miele say no to the set menus by the restaurant or catering! We advise you to suggest to the chefs your ideas to serve dishes that are in line with the fil rouge of your wedding.
People are attracted by the details that respect the recurring theme: the dishes themselves will evoke emotions and colors of what is around you.
If you have chosen a beach wedding in Italian style, for example, we suggest you to propose simple and elegant dishes that recall the true taste of the Mediterranean sea.
Apulian gastronomy offers a variety of typical dishes: from panzerotti to focaccia, from mashed beans and chicory to eggplant parmesan, from taralli to frittelle. Have fun according to your taste and your passions: only this way the menu of your wedding will be unique!
4. Menu with route in stages
Do you want to make your wedding banquet fun and at the same time elegant and particular? We propose a menu with route, a sort of themed treasure hunt between the tables set up buffet.
Tell a story, maybe your own, and arrange the tables creating the stages of your journey.
Adorn the tables not only with food, but also with riddles, card games and photobooths to make the banquet an adventure for all your guests, until you get to the dessert table and cut the cake.
5. Menu between rites and traditions
Traditional-style weddings are a trend for the year 2020. More and more spouses, in fact, decide to celebrate their marriage respecting rites and styles typical of their native place.
The search for the raw material, the roots and the customs handed down by their grandparents mainly concerns the foods chosen for the banquet.
In Puglia di Miele we love weddings in traditional style and propose to our spouses a wedding in Apulian style,between rites and traditions. Therefore, a menu with traditional recipes and showcooking performed by the cooks of the place: here the location of the banquet becomes an ancient village in Puglia, rich in smells, flavors and colors of our land.
A rustic but delicate style, perfect for those who want to involve their guests in a jump into the past, in the history of their own families.
The ideas for your wedding menu are endless, just turn to the best wedding planners.
