Delightful Fall-Themed Cocktails
Oh the possibilities of themed cocktails! Always one of the most fun aspects of a wedding, cocktails are easy to theme.

Appetizers That Will Keep Every Guest Happy
Never before has cuisine been so polarizing. Between gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan it can be challenging to please everyone. Well, fret not because there are plenty of fall-oriented appetizers that can suit everyone’s needs!
- Apple Dipper Bar – Have the caterers set up plenty of pre-sliced apples, and then arrange to have plenty of dip options. Some of the dips can have dairy, gluten, and animal products, but you can also offer dips which don’t.

Fall Comfort Foods
Regardless of where your wedding is actually being held, the idea that the weather gets colder in fall is reason enough to feature some yummy warm comfort foods on the menu. We’re thinking baked mac n cheese, chicken pot pie soup, mashed potato casserole, leek and potato soup, or garlic rosemary rolls. So many possibilities, comfort food is sure to please everyone and further the cozy autumn ambiance.
Deserts For The Win
Next to cocktails, desserts take the cake (ha – pun intended for sure) for being the most fun libation to select and arrange. There are plenty of options here. Naturally if you’re going for a large, or even mini, wedding cake there are endless autumn decor possibilities, and likely your cake decorator will be able to give you beautiful recommendations. But, for the rest of the desert table, consider offering everyone’s fall favorite – pie. Apple, cream, chocolate, peach, you name it, there’s a pie of it. For a super fun and engaging desert try caramel apples. You might even have different toppings guests can dip their apples in. Wedding couple beware – caramel apples have a tendency to get a little messy. Empanadas, sometimes known as hand pies, are another wonderful and super adorable dessert option. Donuts! But this time fall flavored – apple cinnamon, apple cider glazed, apple spiced… apple everything!
