Fall weddings are just around the corner and we are so excited for all of the beauty to come, especially incredible Fall wedding foods. We recently spoke with Two Fat Men Catering about everything Fall for delicious, unforgettable wedding dishes that your guests will rave about. As we transition from Summer to Fall, many couples start to lean toward comfort foods, like mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, chili, grilled cheese, and apple pie. “They are always asking for foods that make them happy, the foods they grew up having as a child, such as friend chicken, grilled cheese, mashed potatoes, and smores.”
Two Fat Men loves to find out each couple’s favorite foods and then put a spin on them for something unique and perfectly Fall. If you love grilled cheese and tomato soup, and want to bring this into the menu, you will love Two Fat Men’s version with warm tomato soup served in a shot glass with a heart-shaped grilled cheese, or a soup and grilled cheese live action station! Couples also typically love starches for their menu. Two Fat Men offers a “twisted starch bar” with both mac & cheese and mashed potatoes with endless toppings, including caramelized onions, house-cured brown sugar glazed bacon, sautéed mushrooms, and fresh local cheeses.
Fall is also the perfect wedding season for adorable mini desserts and dessert stations with apple pies, chocolate pies, and pecan pies. Warm hot chocolate, apple cider, and coffee stations are also a must for Fall, which would be perfect with a sweet treat during the reception! “Our oversized s’mores station is one of our most requested fall wedding must haves. Who doesn’t like s’mores? We have a custom made A frame that looks like a swing-set that holds all our hot dips (white chocolate, sweet chocolate, caramel and Ghiradelli chocolate) and the marshmallow graham crackers hang using clothes pins. We also make homemade donuts, and our donut wall with coffee and hot chocolate is great for chilly evening weddings.”
There is such a variety of beautiful, fresh ingredients to choose from for the Fall wedding menu. Two Fat Men loves all of the fresh vegetables and herbs that are in season for salads, sauces, toppings, and sides. “We incorporate apples, pumpkin, eggplant, sweet potatoes, pears, winter squashes, and brussels sprouts for fall weddings. We are picky. The best ingredient is one that is hand-selected for freshness and flavor.” Two Fat Men sources the finest ingredients from specialty farmers to make each recipe fresh and delicious.
The Fall wedding season offers a fabulous selection of colors for decorating the food tables as well. Two Fat Men likes including pumpkins, gourds, eggplants, and squash for a festively beautiful display. Two Fat Men absolutely loves Fall Nashville weddings, and we do, too! Fall is such a beautiful time to come together to celebrate the love between every Nashville couple. “Give us a call to discuss what your wedding meal ideas are and we would love to help you craft a menu for your big day!”
