Today, we are continuing with ideas for Fall Weddings. Last time we looked at fall themed Signature Drinks and Cocktails and today we will be exploring fall menu selections for your wedding. The most popular Fall Menu has great selections for both cocktail hour and dessert, reminding your guest of the bounty of the season and all its delicious flavors.
For the cocktail hour, consider adding a station which has a fall theme both in the food selections and the décor so your guests can experience the rich flavors of the season. At Majestic Gardens, our Fall Harvest Station has hearty fall favorites including Chicken Calvados (chicken breast, smothered in apples, toasted almonds and Calvados brandy cream sauce), Pumpkin Ravioli, and Butternut Squash Soup accompanied by Pumpernickel and Cranberry Walnut Breads. Another great idea is to serve Butternut Squash soup over crumbled gorgonzola and, for the very creative, the soup can be ladled into miniature pumpkins.
For the reception, the fall flavors can be incorporated into the salad course by adding walnuts, seasonal fruit and cheese. Consider a salad with dried cranberries, pecans and goat cheese or greens topped with apple slices, gorgonzola and toasted walnuts. For the main course, you can add in the fall flavors whether in a stuffing, the seasoning or the sauce. For the chicken entrée, consider a stuffed capon with wild rice or bacon-wrapped chicken with blue cheese and walnut stuffing. Another great entrée is pasta with Italian sausage and a pumpkin-sage sauce.
The wedding cake is a focal point of every reception and can express your vision and personalities. Whether you go with a “Naked” cake (no icing on the outside) or a cake with fall leaves and pumpkins, the options are endless.
For that extra sweet way to end your event, try one of our Fall Desert stations. For pie lovers, our Ice Cream & Pie Dessert Bar is the station for you. This includes all your favorite fall pies: Pumpkin, Pecan, and Apple, each served with Vanilla Ice Cream and warm Caramel Sauce. If you are looking for more of a Fall medley of desserts, try the Autumn Delight Dessert Bar. This dessert bar features freshly prepared Pumpkin Waffles, Hot Apple Skillet, served with Vanilla Ice Cream, warm Caramel Sauce and classic toppings including walnuts, raisins, and chocolate chips.
Our next Bridal Expo is Tuesday October 6th, and we will be featuring Fall menu selections for you to sample. For information on the Wedding Expo and to make a reservation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 631-744-9500.
