6 food and drink trends for 2017 weddings

Written by Katie Byrne

Wedding planner Katie Stocks shares her delectable tips for celebrations taking place over the next 12 months...


Let's start with the wedding cake

Say hello to the geode wedding cake: these detailed bakes are covered in edible colourful crystals, creating a beautiful 3D rock formation inside a frosted cake.

Don’t worry: if this sparkly crystal interior isn’t your style, it’s not time to say goodbye to the famous naked cake and buttercream frosting just yet. Chocolate glazed naked cakes will soon be the next big thing. Click here for more 2017 wedding cake trends.


Donuts have never been more popular

Delicious donuts are a true trendsetter for 2017 - move over singular treats, and instead say hello to donut walls and towers.

Donuts embracing colour with metallic tones and glitter will also be huge - think playful, quirky displays and unusual flavours. Glamour, sparkle and glitter - what’s not to love?

Dessert stations

Towers of cakepops, stacks of cookies, tiers of elegant macarons, piles of toasted marshmallows... Dessert stations are a popular option for sweet-toothed couples and a real treat for guests of all ages - and younger guests will love the opportunity to customise their goodies with icing and edible decorations.

Street food delights 

Three words: street food trucks! Trendy, popular and loved by all. Say 'yes' to miniature midnight snacks, such as posh fish and chips, miniature burgers and crepes - and those are just a few of the options! If this isn’t the look or feel you want, ask your cater to serve midnight snacks, such as miniature pizzas and bagels. After all, no one wants to go home feeling hungry.

Signature cocktails and mocktails

Get the party started by serving signature ‘His & Her’ cocktails. Personalise your drinks reception by picking two of your favourite cocktails and giving your nearest and dearest the chance to pick (and perhaps customise) their tipple of choice. It's a great way to get guests mingling; make children feel extra-special by creating mocktails to include them in all the fun. Cheers!

Spirit Bars

Second bars designated to a special spirit are soon to become very popular. Add a special touch with personalised details, truly unique to you and your celebration, such as coloured glassware and ice cubes to match your wedding theme.
