Exotic Wedding Dishes

Weddings are all about happiness and sharing in the love and joy of two people committed to each other. The perfect wedding is a blend of beautiful colors, happy people, and accompanying music. But it is hard to be happy and stay happy on an empty stomach. Therefore most weddings have elaborate plans on how to feed their reception party. 

You can never go wrong with a mix of meat and poultry, fresh salads, and a nice selection of wines and liquor. Wedding food has a bad reputation for being far too bland, so it’s a good idea to spice up your wedding menu with a few exotic dishes.

Understand that they might not all be suitable for your chosen dining method. Whether you have gone with a sit-down setting, buffet or serving stations, it can have an important impact on what you choose to serve your guests.


A common staple in Italian weddings, it is composed of thick bread slices. The slices are grilled and topped with tomatoes or herbs. They are usually served as snacks as either starters or complimentary dishes at cocktail style wedding parties.


Another part of Italian cuisine, Ravioli is a dumpling/pasta with a filling dipped in sauce. The filling is usually cheese, chicken or vegetables. The traditional shape of these dumplings is square, though other shapes can be seen as well. These dumplings can be served alone as well as dipped in a thick creamy sauce.

Achiote-Marinated Grilled Chicken

A tasty main course from Mexico, this tasty grilled chicken can be served to your guests with a variety of salad options, dipping sauces, roast potatoes or even boiled mushrooms. You can spice up the accompaniments of this spicy food item however you want.

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

If you and your wedding guests crave red meat, you can go with this beefy option. They usually go well with wheat or corn tortilla, or you can simply eat it raw. It is another great Mexican dish to serve your wedding guests.

Hot Berry Tarts 

For a cool dessert option, we will go back to Italian cuisine. These traditional desserts combine the two tasty worlds of pastry making and fresh fruit into small little tarts. These tasty delights will definitely let your guests taste the sweet happiness and joy of your wedding.

Mexican Wedding Cakes

Though they already have enough credibility in the name, their taste and the ability to melt in your mouth makes them a great choice for wedding desserts. They also go by many other names, Mexican wedding cookies, Russian tea cakes, and even Italian butternuts.

These are not just different names; every variety of this dessert has its own nuances that make it a bit different than others. All of them can delight your wedding guests.

Weddings are where people come together. They can also be an event where a lot of good tastes come together. Choosing the right food can be just as crucial as choosing the right venue. And good food can be what makes your guests enjoy the event as much as you do.
