5 Ideas For Winter Wedding Catering

The weather outside may be frightful but your winter wedding is sure to be delightful! One of the best ways to incorporate the snowy season in your wedding is through your menu. Some of the best Salt Lake City catering companies share their unique and tasty wedding catering ideas that are perfect for the season.

Soup Shots – Not only are scrumptious soup shots a great way to warm up chilly guests, they give everyone the opportunity to sample each flavor. A few winter favorites include butternut squash with cinnamon croutons, lobster bisque, French onion, or the perennial favorite, tomato with basil.


Drinks to Warm the Soul – Give your guests a special treat in the farm of toasty beverages, both alcoholic and non-. For the adults, consider serving spiced wine or your version of the hot toddy (often mixed with bourbon). For the kids and those who prefer something non-alcoholic, hot chocolate with whipped cream and apple cider with cinnamon sticks make perfect seasonal favorites.

Winter Entrees – Consider serving warm, winter entrees with a twist. Instead of the old chicken standby, try serving roast beef, lamb, or even Cornish hen. Other great options include seafood like lemon ginger salmon or seared scallops with pineapple.

Enticing Side Dishes – Think comfort foods when it comes to your side dishes. Consider gourmet macaroni and cheese, homemade baked beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, or creamy au gratin potatoes.

Delectable Desserts – The perfect winter desserts are rich and sinful. Velvety cakes, fruit pies, warm cookies, and of course chocolate (e.g. a chocolate fountain with endless choices to dip) all make ideal desserts. Try to stay away from ice cream and sorbet, as they are more suited for a spring or summer wedding.
