You can typically go without the hors d'oeuvres at a wedding. Let’s face it- it’s usually the least exciting part of the food you’ll enjoy. Mexicue has decided that this should no longer be the case and our RTR bride, Brooke, jumped right on the wagon for her wedding. Read about her experience here and take a look at Mexicue's take on wedding hors d'oeuvres.
Perhaps you are not a canapé type of couple. Perhaps you don’t believe in wrapping everything in puffed pastry. Bacon, maybe. Great food does not have to be fussy. While hors d'oeuvres should be pleasing to the eye, they should also delight the palate. Frilly, faddish, dry and over-worked, so many classic wedding hors d'oeuvres exist only for lack of imagination.
Home-style food that features seasonal ingredients allows you to create a casually elegant vibe. Imagine how your guests will thank you for forgoing the stale classics in favor of crispy short-rib tacos, with cilantro lime crema and napa cabbage slaw. Or lobster rolls with spiced-habanero aioli, snipped chives and pickled jalapeño? Go ahead and have fun with your food - let your taste buds and imagination be your guide.
