There are many food trends for weddings now, and you can actually serve almost anything, from burgers to exotic Brazilian cuisine, everything is up to you, your location and wedding style. I’d like to share some fresh catering trends that will not only feed your guests the best way possible but also will save your money.

Donut Bar

This is one of the hottest trends now because everybody loves donuts, they are very affordable and can substitute any other desserts: cake pops, cupcakes and even your wedding cake. Besides, every guest will be able to choose what he or she likes most of all and feel cozy and comfy with that. Decorate and organize your bar so that it matched your wedding theme and style: glitter and blooms for a glam wedding, crates and baskets for a rustic wedding, or just go for hanging donuts on hooks – it’s a very popular idea! You can also use this idea for a bridal or a baby shower, it’s always actual.
