Destination Wedding Cuisine Trends
Destination wedding couples want access to the same quality products and services no matter their location. Cuisine is no exception!
Catering executives are definitely on top of destination wedding cuisine trends today. They want to provide everything from farm-to-table menus to an infusion of local flavors for destination wedding clients.
Farm-to-Table Meets Destination Wedding
Do you value locally sourced ingredients and sustainable production methods? If so, you’re not alone. Heightened awareness of environmentally conscious practices is a growing trend!
You don’t have to leave your values behind when planning your destination wedding. The culinary industry is aware of the farm-to-table movement and chefs are happy to celebrate local culture by infusing wedding menus with local ingredients.
Ask for recommendations and be prepared to share some of your own creative menu ideas. Together you can develop a responsible yet delectable menu for your special day.

Refreshments with a Local Twist
Local products don’t stop at the plate! Look to infuse local flavors into your beverages. Build your signature cocktail menu around area specialties. Consider French champagne, Jamaican rum, or margaritas made with top-notch tequila.
Plan an excursion to visit the local wineries and breweries that produce your destination’s best wines and craft beers. Take your guests along and create an unforgettable shared experience and a deeper understanding of your chosen destination.
Take the Diet on the Road
Honoring special diet requests doesn’t have to be difficult when planning a destination wedding.
Improved communication and better familiarity with common diets is making it easier to create custom menus to meet the needs of every guest.
Make sure you collect dietary requirements with your RSVP’s and provide the information to your caterer early on so that menus can be developed. If only a guest or two makes such requests, individual meals can be prepared exclusively for them.
There is no need to sacrifice access to the latest trends when you plan a destination wedding. Simply take them with you and enjoy the best wherever your wanderlust takes you.
