    Creating an Enticing Menu for Your Rehearsal Dinner

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Your wedding is one of the most exciting days of your life. It takes a lot of work to plan out your wedding day, from deciding who to invite to creating a catering menu that everyone will enjoy. As you are planning your wedding, don’t forget to give your rehearsal dinner some attention too! The rehearsal dinner is a time for the two families to get to know one another and to relax before the festivities of the next day. Keep reading for ideas on creating an enticing catering menu at your rehearsal dinner.

    Many of your guests will have an idea of what to expect from your wedding before they arrive. Wedding invitations generally give guests a general dress code and may include RSVP cards wherein guests select from a few different meal options. If you are having a formal wedding, think about hosting a more relaxed rehearsal dinner. A backyard barbecue is always a good choice, especially when you have the food catered by the same company you’re using for the reception. It’s much easier to work out details with just one catering company, and you can relax knowing that the food will be superb.

    Sneak Peek
    You and your spouse-to-be have gone to great lengths to pick the perfect menu to follow your vows. While you probably shouldn’t serve the exact same menu for your rehearsal dinner as you will for your wedding reception, you can give your guests a taste of what’s to come by offering one or two selections that are similar. For example, if you are serving Filet Mignon at your wedding, choose Beef Tenderloin Mini Sandwiches as an appetizer at your rehearsal dinner. If you choose to have a seafood offering at your wedding dinner, offer Mini Bacon Wrapped Scallops at your rehearsal for a sneak preview of the menu on the big day.

    No matter what you want out of your rehearsal dinner menu, Stern’s Catering Company of Dallas can provide it for you. Call us at (214) 360-0001 or take a look at our sample menus online to see what we offer. Let Stern’s make your rehearsal dinner just as memorable as the wedding itself!

    Satisfy Your Guests' Cravings with Great Appetizers

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Appetizers do not always get the credit that they deserve! These small culinary delights bring flavor and fun to any type of event. Keep reading to see why you should include appetizers the next time you cater a party or special event:

    Snacking During a Long Event
    Include appetizers at longer events to keep your guests well-fed before the main course is served. You can also keep appetizers out for the duration of the event so guests can graze whenever they feel a pang of hunger. Appetizers are also easy to eat, so they do not hinder guests from actually enjoying the event that you worked so hard to plan.

    Breaking the Ice
    If you are planning a large event with guests who do not know each other, appetizers can serve as a social icebreaker. Many people feel more comfortable when they have something in their hands. The amazing taste of the delicacies is also a great conversation starter. When you include appetizers at a social gathering, it helps everyone have a better time.

    Serving a Variety of Foods
    With food allergies and picky eaters, it can be hard to decide on special event catering that pleases everyone. Appetizers help you reach out to those difficult eaters by offering a wide variety of foods. From mini egg rolls to filo dough pastry-wrapped mushrooms, appetizers offer the variety you need to keep your guests happy.

    Stern’s Catering Company in Dallas understands the importance of great food. Our mouthwatering catering options are the ideal addition to any event. With our amazing array of appetizers, entrées, and desserts, we give you the choice you need to plan a successful event.
