10 Wedding Food Trends the Smart Bride (and Groom) Will Avoid

Don’t become the clichéd couple serving cocktails in mason jars at your wedding this year

Don't be the clichéd couple this wedding season by avoiding the worst wedding food trends.

If you’re one of the couples who have decided to tie the knot this year, as wedding season approaches, you’ll doubtless be spending the next couple of months frantically organizing every last detail of your big day. Planning your wedding can be busy and stressful, with endless big decisions that need to be made, not to mention the pressure in the form of so many questions from friends, family, and suppliers. We’re here to help you avoid being the clichéd couple this wedding season by collecting together this year’s wedding food trends that you really need to avoid.

10 Wedding Food Trends the Smart Bride (and Groom) Will Avoid (Slideshow)

Ever since the overwhelming rise of Pinterest-inspired, bohemian-rustic weddings, the wedding receptions where chilled Champagne is served in elegant flutes, and a traditional white, tiered cake is cut after the meal, have all but disappeared. In their place, we’ve become used to weddings were we feast on burgers, sitting on the floor, drinking potent cocktails out of glass jars.

To avoid having a wedding identical to everybody else’s, to avoid annoying your guests by serving irritatingly small portions of miniature food, and to avoid making your grandparents feel unwelcome by asking them to do the impossible and sit on the floor, make sure that you resist the temptation to replicate those stunning photos on the hip wedding blogs, and remember that this is your wedding, and not a summer festival. Make sure you keep a touch of elegance and refinement on your big day: It’s your wedding party, so glamor and extravagance are totally allowed. In fact, they’re recommended.

There are several reasons why we don’t want you to fall victim to these food trends at your wedding. They’ve either had their moment, or they simply never should have been considered a trend at all. Express your personality, celebrate your love in whatever romantic ways you want to, and serve your favorite food, but whatever you do, please don’t serve anything in a mason jar.

This past Saturday I married my boyfriend of 3.5 years! Yayyy! When you live in Pittsburgh, a winter wedding is about as common as finding someone not wearing a “Stillers” jersey wandering around “dahntown” on a football Sunday (or let’s face it, any day). Whatever though, at least ours will be much more memorable than the 59 summer weddings our guests will attend over the course of their lives.

Anyways, battling the snow isn’t the only challenge with a January wedding — you also have to deal with the issue of the plethora of holiday food that surrounds you from Thanksgiving through New Years. Not only is there, it’s good, and it wants you to eat it! Oh boy.

I won’t lie, this was definitely challenging some days, but overall turned out to be totally manageable.

Avoid Gaining Weight for Your Winter Wedding with These Tips

  • Workout Like a Crazy Person: Seriously, go to the gym as much as possible. For me, I could typically only manage to get there five times per week, but would go six days when I could find the time. This is tricky of course, as not only are you a busy bride, but it’s also in the middle of the holiday season. On the plus side, exercising is a great way to relieve the stress that inevitably comes with both of these things.
  • Make Healthy Recipes: My contribution to the office potluck holiday party this year was a big salad with low-fat dressing. I filled the majority of my plate with this, skipping the cookies, brownies and other fatty things I would never eat at lunchtime anyway. I was also pleasantly surprised to be on the receiving end of many compliments, as my co-workers were happy to have something healthy to add to the party!
  • Practice Moderation: The holidays only come once a year, so you shouldn’t deprive yourself of some of your favorite once-a-year foods! You’ll just be a bitter little bridezilla, who ends up in the middle of a midnight cookie binge. Simply limit yourself to a certain number of cookies, skip thirds on the mashed potatoes, and you’ll be just fine.

Basically, I found that if you’re already living a healthy lifestyle, you don’t really need to go one some crazy diet to fit into your wedding gown. I pretty much lived life as normal and felt fantastic on my wedding day!
