Fresh & Vibrant: Planning Your Spring Wedding Menu

Planning a spring wedding menu is an exciting endeavor that allows you to infuse the celebration with the fresh and vibrant flavors of the season. As the temperatures rise and nature awakens, couples can craft a culinary experience that reflects the joy and renewal that spring brings to your special day. Here are some ideas for planning your spring wedding menu:


Whether the appetizers are plated or passed around, they should be something your guest can quickly and easily consume while mingling with other attendees. For example, Caprese Skewers with Cherry Tomatoes, Mozzarella, and Basil are a perfect spring appetizer. You should also consider Smoked Salmon Canapés with Dill Cream Cheese or Spring Rolls with Shrimp and Fresh Vegetables.


With crisp salads on your spring wedding menu, the possibilities are as limitless as the colors of a spring garden! Why not try a Strawberry Spinach Salad with Feta and Balsamic Vinaigrette or an Asparagus and Prosciutto Salad? If you opt for a Mixed Greens Salad, make sure to pair it with a Citrus Dressing to bring out those spring flavors.

Main Courses

Don’t stress over the main course menu. Working with a professional caterer can help ensure the execution of these ideas for a delightful spring wedding feast. Some options include Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken or Grilled Salmon with Mango Salsa. Additionally, a Pesto Pasta Primavera or a Honey Glazed Ham with Pineapple could be exactly what your spring wedding menu needs.


Sides are the perfect opportunity to craft a culinary experience that mirrors the blossoming surroundings of your wedding location. Some ideas include Roasted Vegetables (asparagus, carrots, and baby potatoes), Quinoa Salad, or Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.


It goes without saying that a spring wedding menu needs signature spring cocktails (e.g., Elderflower Spritz, Strawberry Basil Mojito). Make sure to include options for those who aren’t drinking, like Iced Tea with Fresh Mint or a Sparkling Lemonade.


On to everyone’s favorite part – desserts! What sweet staple is a popular local go-to? Are there strawberry fields close by? Lemon groves? Then, why not a Strawberry Shortcake or Lemon Sorbet? If nothing is coming to mind, you can’t go wrong with White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake or Mini Fruit Tarts.

Whether you opt for classic favorites or innovative twists, planning a spring wedding menu is an opportunity to indulge in the culinary delights of the season, creating a memorable and delicious experience for everyone involved.
