While we still haven't finalized the menu, we have chosen a caterer and have a general idea of what will be served at our reception. Since Italian food is somewhat of a specialty where we're from (and a favorite among both of our families), we knew from the beginning that we'd be serving it at our wedding.
Here's a sneak peek at our menu! (I will be making the descriptions sound prettier after it's finalized... if anyone has suggestions on wording, I'd love to hear them!)
Appetizer (if we have one) served during cocktail hour:Thin (as in cracker thin) crust pizza, various kinds
Salad (plated):(not sure exactly what exactly is in the salad yet) with homemade Italian dressing
Main course (served buffet style):
Homemade pasta bar which includes
Meat and cheese ravioli
Red sauce (with meat)
Cake (flavors yet to be determined)
Italian knot cookies (I can't remember the real name)
My stomach is growling already. I'm excited to be serving something that is not usually categorized as "wedding food". I've been to a lot of weddings, and none of them have ever served Italian food!
What do you think of our menu? Are you serving something out of the norm at your reception?
