Tasty Outdoor Wedding Food Ideas

Outdoor Wedding Food Catering by Alan Weiss

Skewers are always an outdoor wedding staple

Last week, we discussed why hosting an outdoor wedding is beneficial. Now, we’re going to go over some tasty food ideas for outdoor weddings. Your guests will remember how great (or not so great) the food at your wedding was. Also, hosting a summer wedding, in particular, does come with some considerations. For example, serving soup when it’s 90º outside or hotter probably isn’t the best idea. We know that you’ll look forward to these delicious and refreshing options. 


Consider skewers that have mozzarella, basil, and tomato stuffed cherries on them. This appetizer is so fresh that your guests will feel like they’re eating fresh produce straight from a garden. Skewers are also an excellent option because you can customize them. You can add your favorite meats to them or add anything that you like. 


What would be a wedding without a delicious salad? Salads are super healthy, and creativity is limitless. Consider strawberries, mandarin oranges, and red onions in your salad. These ingredients scream “summer” and will be sure to delight your guests’ taste palettes.

Sizzling Stirfry

This option, like salads and skewers, has many possibilities. You and your guests will find the fresh ingredients and the colorful presentation enjoyable. You can pick your favorite vegetables and various meat options, such as chicken or shrimp. 


Have you ever had a Philly cheesesteak slider on a Hawaiian roll? If not, you should try it! You won’t regret it. An outdoor wedding is very casual, and sliders work well with an outdoorsy vibe. A slider station is indeed the way to go, especially for pickier guests or guests with dietary restrictions. We can load your slider station with sliced, tender meat, fried onions, lettuce, tomatoes, rolls, and any of your favorite ingredients. Chips are also the perfect accompaniment to sliders. Sliders and chips together will be music to your mouth! 

Savory Berry Sabayon

What’s a wedding without a cake? Sweet, moist, and decadent cake will always be a wedding staple. However, if you’re looking for something extra to add to the dessert menu, berry sabayon is fantastic! Berries are refreshing, cold, and the perfect summer staple. Strawberries and blueberries topped with a delicious wine sabayon sauce and fresh mint all served in a mason jar is a unique, memorable, and tasty touch.
