Fun Winter Foods You’ll Love for Your Wedding
Winter weddings reap the benefits of serving crowd-pleasing comfort foods and rich sweets. Warm cheese appetizers, soup shooters and creative food bars (an all-spud bar and poutine station top our list of favorites) provide guests with hearty snacks in bite-size servings. After all those savory foods, make sure your guests satisfy their sweet tooth with go-to winter treats like a hot cocoa bar (with mint stirrers and doughnut holes!) or individual chocolate lava cakes. Here are nine mouthwatering options to help you create your winter wedding menu.
Baked Cheese Appetizer
Start off your cocktail hour with winter-friendly snacks like baked-brie-and-cheese tarts served with nuts, fruit jams and pear slices.
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Take a classic cold weather combo and shrink it down to cocktail-hour size, like these winning tomato soup shooters and grilled cheese wedge plates.
Potato Bar (With Toppings!)
There's a potato for everyone when you set up a table at your reception topped with tater tots, baked and mashed potatoes, french fries and stuffed potato skins. And trust us—there won't be any leftovers at this food bar!
Soup Sips in Mini Mugs
Get creative with how you serve winter staples. Mini mugs make soup a portable, easy-to-sip hors d'oeuvre.
Crowd-pleasing comfort food like mac and cheese gets a fun, cocktail-worthy twist in bite-size servings.
Roasted Root Vegetables
With all the heavy winter foods, simple roasted winter vegetables are a welcome addition to the dinner menu.
Hot Chocolate and Toppings Bar
Treat your guests to a cup of hot cocoa (with calligraphed drink sleeves). Set out a buffet of toppings choices, from rock candy and peppermint stick stirrers to whipped cream and sprinkles.
Mini Chocolate Lava Cakes
In place of, or in addition to, the wedding cake, offer warmed individual chocolate lava cakes!
To-Go Poutine Bar
Set up a to-go poutine bar at the end of the reception to satisfy guests' late-night cravings. This Canadian tradition starts with a base of french fries and is topped with gravy and cheese curds.
