A “Couple” of Great Ideas on How to Make Your Day Uniquely Yours

Some of the most fun you’ll have while designing your wedding day is finding creative ways to bring the spirit of you as a couple to friends and family.  The wedding cake, cake topper, favors and invitations are great places to start to incorporate your couple style and personality.  

The Wedding Cake:

The wedding cakes is a great place to express yourselves in a delicious way. If the trip you took to Italy was the moment when you first fell in love, a cake made with mascarpone or cannoli filling may be a great way to remember that special moment in time. The added touch of decorating the cake to showcase the geography of your trip will really bring the sentiment together. Perhaps you and your fiancé share a pet or pets. Maybe you met at the dog park. Having a custom cake topper made of your pets is a fun way to make them part of the day, as well as a great conversation piece for guests to focus on.  Do you both love the beach? Try tying in a nautical element to your cake as in the featured photo below. Work with your event planner or caterer on finding the perfect way to make your cake something you and your guests will remember.

The Wedding Favors:

Your wedding favors are a chance for you to get really creative and think about how you wish to send off your wedding guests at the end of the night. The featured collage shows just how unique some favors can be. If you and your fiancé love coffee, try sending your guests home with your favorite blend. The signage is also an adorable touch! You can’t go wrong with saying goodbye to your guests with your favorite snack. Consider something easy to pack in a container that will look pretty and pleasing to your guests, such as the featured s’mores.  Are you and your spouse garden lovers? Because thanking your guests with your favorite plant, such as a succulent, is just the cutest favor!

The Invitations:

Have fun with this process! There are so many ways to incorporate your interests in the wedding invitations to get your guests excited about attending your big day. The featured collage highlights the many ways you can present your guests with unique invitations. For book lovers everywhere, try creating a wedding booklet your guests can flip through. This is a cute and compact way to include a ton of important information about your big day. If you’re having a more rustic wedding day, take a look at the top right photo of the collage. Creating a foldable invitation that previews the details of your rustic farm wedding is unique and beautiful. Including a detachable RSVP card at the bottom is just the right touch! For couples who dominate game night or just love a good competition, consider having your invitation look like a board game, as featured in the bottom left photo. And if your guests will be traveling, we highly recommend including the travel theme to your invite. Who wouldn’t get excited about a boarding pass, like in the bottom right photo?

Main Courses for Your Wedding Reception

It is a common misconception that all wedding venues will serve delicious and elegant meals. This is why investing in a reputable caterer is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when wedding planning. What’s unique about Celebrate at Snug Harbor is that it is operated by Relish Caterers & Event Planning. You know that quality food is a high priority to them. Their fine-dining approach to catering ensures seasonally inspired menus that utilize the freshest ingredients – prepared to perfection. So your only job is to think about what you’d like to serve to your guests for the reception main course. Some advice: vary your options. You’ll want to offer a red meat course, a chicken or pork, and a fish option so that you can cater to the dietary needs of your guests.

Red Meat Inspiration:

For your red meat options, Relish Caterers can offer you dishes that your guests will want to devour. The featured photo on the left of the collage show a beef short rib over mashed potatoes with cherry tomatoes. To the top right, you have a duck over sweat peas with sprinkled pomegranates for an extra boost in flavor. To the bottom right, you have a grilled beef tenderloin over a custom herbed butter and jus and sautéed greens.

The Chicken or Pork Option:

For your second meat option, you’ll want to offer a classic style of chicken and perhaps dare to offer something new and unique that your guests haven’t tried or had yet. Relish Caterers takes a creative spin by offering a roasted free range chicken with baby artichokes and a basil and lemon caper sauce (right side featured photo). This is a great variation in flavor to offer alongside the coveted roasted chicken dish. A different spin on chicken could also be to serve a pan seared chicken over the always satisfying seasoned roast potatoes. If you’re looking to go sans chicken, you may want to consider serving the seared pork chop with potato galette, roasted apples and poppy seed buttermilk vinaigrette in the top left of the collage. Can you say yum?

Your Fish Option:

It’s important to offer options when it comes to fish. Guests may not wish to eat meat but may also be selective with their seafood preferences. Relish Caterers has you covered here. The featured collage highlights just a fraction of what you can have served at your wedding dinner. The top left photo includes a slow roasted salmon over black truffle mashed potatoes and buttered English peas for delicious flavor and texture. To the bottom left of the collage you’ll see a miso black cod over vegetable rice. If you’re looking for a more classic spin on cod, you could offer a roasted cod, featured on the bottom right, with sautéed vegetables and a puree sauce for a flavor boost. One of our favorite options is a citrus lobster on the top right of the collage. Bursting with flavor, the lobster is a dish even meat lovers will want to bite into!
