5 Ways to Serve Pasta at Your Wedding
If your favourite foods include mac ‘n’ cheese, spaghetti and meatballs and fettuccine alfredo, you should probably be serving pasta at your wedding.
Calling all pasta lovers! We’ve got some wedding menu ideas just for you. Whether you want to add some bite-sized noodle dishes to your cocktail hour spread or need a little help coming up with a unique post-wedding brunch dish, we’ve got you covered. Not all of these ideas are traditional, but they are pretty darn tasty.
Here are a few ways to serve pasta at your wedding.
As hors d’oeuvres
Your guests’ stomachs will probably be rumbling after you say your “I dos”, so you’re going to want to have some top-notch eats ready to serve at your cocktail hour. Ask your caterer to fill cups or spoons with itty bitty portions of pasta. We suggest offering a variety of different options, like pesto, carbonara and bolognese.
As a main course
Speaking of dinner, this is probably the most obvious time to serve pasta. If you can’t decide on just one style (it’s hard, I know), go with a food station or pasta buffet, instead. That way everyone will find a dish or two they absolutely adore for dinner.
As a dessert
Didn’t think pasta could be a dessert? Think again, my friends. Chocolate ravioli is now a thing, and we think it would make for a pretty killer wedding dessert. Finish it off with a drizzle of caramel sauce and some crushed nuts or marshmallows for something really spectacular. This dessert will probably be something that your guests haven’t seen, so they’ll definitely be snapping photos.
As a late night snack
Think your guests will require a bit of refuelling after the sun goes down? Bring on the late night eats! We all know that carbs = energy, so hit your guests with some mac ‘n’ cheese bites after a few hours of dancing. They’re not exactly nutritious, but they definitely are delicious.
At your post-wedding brunch
Pasta may not be on every breakfast menu, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add it to yours! Instead of going with a fettuccine alfredo or penne arrabiata for your post-wedding brunch - that might be a little much - serve your friends and family some heaping slices of breakfast lasagna. This dish is pretty hearty, so it’s sure to help with any hangovers.
