Wedding reception food and drinks are an essential and memorable part of every beach wedding. No matter if you have a small reception or a party for hundreds, ensuring your guests eat well with a delicious and creative drink in hand is important!
At Velas Weddings, we've collected some of the most exciting wedding trends that we've seen for creative food and drinks offers in 2019.
Tequila was so last year! Bring something fresh and trendy like the famous Mexican spirit, Mezcal! If you haven't already heard about it, this distillate is made from agave -- the same plant base as Tequila, but Mezcal has an entirely different flavor.
Recently, Mezcal has gone from being a traditional Mexican drink to an increasingly popular spirit, known throughout the country and the world - a favorite among locals and tourists alike. If you're planning your beach wedding in Mexico, a Mezcal station is the perfect option! Let your guests try numerous varieties of this trendy drink.
Who doesn't love chips and guac? A simply irresistible snack, you can't have just one! In Mexico, there are so many unique recipes that a guacamole bar is sure to impress your guests. Give them numerous recipe options with varying degrees of heat and interesting ingredients like spicy mango! Served it up with colorful blue corn tortilla chips, sweet potato chips or even with dried plantain slices.
If you are planning your Mexican beach wedding, consider including tacos at the reception. Tacos are the flagship food of choice in Mexico and they're delicious and perfect for finger foods!
You can have the option of a taco-specific waiter attending to your guests, or go a step further and bring a food truck! It would definitely give your wedding a fun and memorable touch, plus it'll be a delicious surprise for your guests.
Exchange the traditional wedding cake for a mountain of sugar-coated deliciousness at a churro station! These doses of cinnamon-y, sugar-y goodness are perfect as finger foods and can be accompanied by flavored dips and sauces like chocolate, caramel, dulce de leche, strawberry cream, lechera and more.
Without a doubt, a churro station at your wedding is an original, and very Mexican, option – it's bound to be a hit!
Of course, the fun isn't complete without a round of shots! Shots of all colors!! Replace traditional shot glasses for iced shot molds to offer fun and chilly "icy shots". Everyone will love them and imagine how instagrammable they'll be!
With these tasty wedding trends for your reception, you and all your guests will be all smiles.
