Choosing the right food and drink options is essential to pulling together your vision for your wedding. Your wedding menu will likely be impacted by what foods are in season and are typically associated with the time of year you get married. Keeping in mind the season will ensure that you are serving your guests fresh, flavorful food. Choosing a seasonal wedding menu also gives you the opportunity to play with unique flavors and unexpected food and drink ideas.
The menu you choose will likely also be impacted by the style of wedding reception you are having. Whether you are serving a sit-down dinner to your guests, having a buffet or offering small bites during cocktail hour, consider choosing seasonal foods to really impress your guests. Adding special touches like wedding menu cards can also add a special touch to your event. Read on for wedding menu ideas by season.
If you are getting married in the spring, play up the bright flowers, pastel colors and light flavors that the season is known for. Make sure to incorporate the many fruits, vegetables and herbs that are in season this time of year, like asparagus, melons, apricots, lavender and mint. Celebrate the warmer weather by choosing foods that will complement blooming seasonal florals and bright sunshine.

Water with flavor infusions – Whether you want the water sparkling or still, flavor infusions are a great way to welcome in the season. Cucumbers, strawberries, lemons, and limes are all popular options.
Try a sundae bar – Customization at weddings is all the rage right now, so why not give guests the opportunity to cool off and customize part of the meal with a sundae bar.
Fresh seafood – The warmer it is outside, the lighter you can make the meal. That makes spring a nice time to offer a seafood entree as one of your options rather than two types of meat like chicken or steak. Your guests are likely to appreciate not being weighed down when it comes time to get on the dance floor.
Spring décor – Besides the food, you can add a touch of spring to the tables with fresh flowers and bright colors. Delightful Spring Wedding Catering Options in Southeastern Wisconsin area
