Unique Wedding Food Ideas for Your Wedding

The wedding food is one thing everyone looks forward to on the big day and (apart from the dress) is probably what your guests will remember most. Very often the difference between a good wedding and a bad wedding is hungry guests, but that's where we know what we're doing. Here we go through the most unique wedding catering ideas for 2022 that will ensure your wedding food stands out for all the right reasons. 

These are fun wedding food ideas that give your big day an unexpected twist. Forget the traditional sit down meal and consider these non-traditional wedding ideas that your guests will love.

Food Stations For Weddings

From desert tables to snack buffets, food stations are becoming more and more popular for weddings over the past few years. The best thing about food stations is how easy they are! Basically, think fancy buffet table. 

You can go all out fancy with rustic grazing tables full of varying types of cheeses and bread, have oyster stations complete with ice buckets and sliced lemons, or go sweet with popcorn stations, donut walls and cookie bars.

Street Food For Weddings

Non-traditional but delicious. Street food is popular for a good reason, and completely belongs at a wedding under the right circumstances. Hire a van of your favourite street food and park it outside the venue. A fantastic snack for all those involved. 

Grazing Boards For Weddings

Brides and grooms - say hello to wedding grazing boards. Absolutely stuffed with your favourite foods, grazing tables not only enough tasty food to feed a small army, they also look good. Your caterers can create a work of art with their delicate arrangement of cheeses, breads and meats for all to share.

DIY Wedding Bars

What is a wedding bar? The better question is what ISN’T a wedding bar. Any simple drink that people can set up on their own can be made into your very own DIY wedding bar as a cheap alternative to servers. 

Prosecco and champagne are popular ideas, but you can get creative with a gin, pimms or craft beer bar! Basically, think bar without the bartender - so cocktails are probably a no go - but that doesn’t mean you can’t give your guests the chance to make their drink special. Slices of lemons, limes and strawberries can all be arranged in a beautiful display that helps make the day special. 

BBQ Wedding Food

Similar to a hog roast but with a bit more variety (and no pig’s head… probably) a BBQ wedding is a cheap alternative to the traditional sit down meal and fantastic for a more laid back summer wedding whilst still serving great food.
