When planning a wedding, it’s important to look at all elements of your big day, especially the food and drink! After all, you want to impress your guests and we are here to help. Below are a few of our favorite ‘foodie’ trends!
Late Night Snack
After the ceremony, cocktail, dinner and hours of dancing – guests are hungry! Treat them to a late night snack station. At Stafford’s, we offer a great selection of late night snacks including: Slider Station, Coneys Your Way, Hand-Stretched Pizzas, ‘Run For The Border’ (beef taquitos) and ‘One Night in Bangkok’ (Crab rangoons, vegetable spring rolls and Asian chicken wings).
Weddings are about celebration – family, friends, food and drinks! Adding a signature drink to your bar allows your personality to shine through. Perhaps it’s a Martini you had on your first date or a favorite beverage the two of you share. Be creative or get inspired by browsing our Pinterest boards.
Michigan Craft Beers & Wines
Having guests from out of state? Treat them to the great beer and wines offered in the mitten! Guests will love having the option to ‘try something new.’ Some of our favorite picks include: Cheboygan Lighthouse Amber Ale (Cheboygan Brewing Co, Cheboygan), Bell’s Oberon (Bell’s Brewery, Kalamazoo), Short’s Brewing Bellaire Brown (Short’s Brewing Co., Bellaire) and Petoskey Brewing North 45 (Petoskey Brewery Co., Petoskey). We also carry a large selection of Michigan Wines.
Traditional wedding cake? Cupcakes? Cake pops? Candy buffet? Mini sweets? The possibilities are endless! Many couples choose to have a small cake for cutting and other various desserts for their guests. After all, not everyone is a cake person!
We see more and more couples giving an edible wedding favor as opposed to a ‘keepsake’ mug. Some of our favorites include homemade cookies, local fare (jars of jam from American Spoon Foods), fruit that serves as both a place holder and a favor, local chocolates from Kilwin’s and of course a goody bag guests can fill up with treats from a colorful candy buffet!
