Thanksgiving Wedding Reception Meals to Remember

Thanksgiving can be a wonderful time of the year to get married. If you are planning a Thanksgiving wedding then you can expect to have a family-centered time of celebration. Caterers in Akron, Ohio, have some amazing suggestions for making your Thanksgiving reception a time to remember.

Most couples who are choosing wedding reception catering at Thanksgiving are looking for a traditional dinner that reflects not only who they are, but the importance of the season. You can certainly start your meal with a variety of fruits and cheeses that reflect the harvest theme of the season. A roasted acorn squash soup can be a lovely way to warm the stomachs of your guests. Another Thanksgiving appetizer that Cleveland caterers can offer is seafood served with an apple-based sauce.

For the main course, having a roasted turkey and gravy is an option that will cater to the traditional side of Thanksgiving. Caterers Cleveland also suggest having another main course as well, whether beef wellington, a variety of artisanal sausages or even roasted ham. Adding another main course will give your wedding a lush feel that a normal Thanksgiving doesn’t have. If you are looking for a novel way to celebrate your wedding, consider offering a turkey pot pie with mashed potato crust. Caterers Akron have discovered that this is a popular option for celebrations.

Side dishes are a place where you can show your style. Instead of offering the expected, try something new. Mashed potatoes combined with roasted garlic or white cheddar cheese can be a welcome surprise. Caterers Cleveland also suggest offering roasted green beans with almonds or even a grilled romaine salad as an option. A sweet potato souffle can be a great way to lighten up the potato portion of the meal.

For dessert, don’t forgo the wedding cake. Try offering a carrot cake pr spice cake as your wedding cake, covered fondant and filled with cream cheese or maple nut compote. You can even offer a pie bar or decadent desserts such as pumpkin or chocolate hazelnut mousse. Bowls of sweetened whipped cream and ice cream can make your wedding dessert a success.

Having a Thanksgiving wedding can make memories that can last a lifetime. By taking the traditional Thanksgiving menu and adding a twist, you’ll show your style and tie it into tradition.

Thank you so much for your help with the Rick Schoepe Benefit. It turned out to be bigger than we expected. If it wasn’t for you and your staff, it would not have been as successful.
