Gil’s Elegant Catering 

Nobody can say no to brunch, especially when it’s Gil’s Elegant Catering’s champagne shooters and mini peach crepes! No matter the time, brunch is always a great option to serve at a wedding. There are so many directions you can go in with choosing to serve this meal. Whether you decide on these delicious crepes or something more savory like eggs benedict, they will be a popular dish all around. If you’re planning an elegant seated dinner, a romantic backyard wedding or an action station reception, Gil’s Elegant Catering is the perfect choice.

3. Feed the Soulsoulman's catering grilled cheese tomato soup

Soulman’s Catering

Homestyle cooking is no longer a stranger to the wedding scene. Serving BBQ, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes and other comfort foods is totally acceptable, and this grilled cheese with brisket and tomato soup pairing from Soulman’s Catering is one of our faves to see! Soulman’s Catering has been offering high-quality catering at weddings and events for over 40 years.

4. Fountain with a Twist

Red Maple Catering

Chocolate fountains are no stranger to the wedding scene, but we love putting a fun twist on a classic like this maple syrup fountain from Red Maple Catering! With mini pancakes, fruit, and more, this maple syrup fountain is perfect for the brunch-loving bride. Red Maple Catering doesn’t stop there, though. Their passion is creating playful dishes with bright colors, complex flavors, and the most artistic presentations from appetizers to full-course dinners, food spreads, desserts, and more.

5. Savory Spoonful



We know Mary Poppins was always swearing by a spoonful of sugar, but this unique idea has us wondering if savory spoonfuls are the way to go! Weddings have been seeing more and more modern takes on amuse-bouches, and we don’t mind it one bit. Make the appetizers easy for your guests to grab during cocktail hour by serving this spoonful of shrimp and grits by COHOST.
