Summer is the perfect time for lighter, healthier, dishes—refreshing gazpacho, delicious salads topped with watermelon, chilled shrimp cocktail—all of which are more than weather appropriate options.
But make sure to have a few hearty choices mixed in there to give your guests energy to go on all night long on the dance floor! Summer is the season for barbecuing, so comfort foods like barbecue skewers, fillet steak or sea bass grilled fillet with fresh seasonal side vegetables are all season-friendly choices that won’t leave your guests aching for more.
To top things off think about refreshing drinks. Summer drinks call for seasonal fruit, fresh mint and a whole lot of lemonade. Here, are some of our favourite sips to keep your guests cool on these hot summer days. If you are planning an outdoor wedding, consider adding a drink station, is a great way to supplement the bar at a reception!
Providing a dessert in addition to the wedding cake is more popular than ever and a great way to “seasonize” your menu. Give your dessert double impact by choosing sweet treats that echoe the summer atmosphere. Consider serving mini-scoop trio of sorbet, mini ice cream cones or fruity ice pops – with so many flavours to choose from, peach, melon, lime, strawberry, mango, and more, you’re sure to find something yummy that suits your style.
