The latest trends in San Francisco Bay Area weddings show many couples booking wedding reception venues 12 to 18 months in advance with all venues experiencing a surge in demand brought on by the hot San Francisco economy.
Other hot wedding menu trends to note for 2016:
- Brunch themed weddings and brunches replacing lunchtime weddings
- Organic, locally sourced food in wedding menus
- Adding “Entertainment” via chef’s in action in front of guests
- Personalization in food presentations
- Food “flights” (variations on a theme like mac n’ cheese or regional specialties)
- Creative twists on the wedding cake
At Joshua Charles Catering, we are honored to have catered over 250 weddings all across the Bay Area from the East Bay to San Jose and from Marin County to San Francisco. We’ve also created wedding menus for destination weddings for Bay Area couples getting married in other locations. We work with wedding planners to carefully gauge the needs and style of every couple, listen to their concerns and present several options for wedding dinners from which they can choose. Sometimes it really helps that Josh has that Ph.D. in Psychology so he can keep the stress level low while inspiring innovative solutions which expertly deliver on wedding couples’ expectations!
Creativity and flexibility are our forte! Many couples tap into their shared past and present tastes for different cuisines and themes to create with us truly unique and dynamic approaches to their wedding menus. We also pride ourselves in over-communicating with our clients so there are no last minute surprises with menu substitutions or other catering changes.
From pre-wedding small gatherings for friends and family to rehearsal dinners to the wedding reception dinner, Joshua Charles Catering can cover 100% of the catering giving you a “one-stop-shopping” seamless and consistent quality of cuisine and service. Our longstanding relationships with wedding venues all over the Bay Area puts us a step ahead of many other wedding caterers. And with one point person running the catering show from start to finish, you are guaranteed coordinated, organized and efficient catering across all your wedding’s events. And by the way, we don’t do package deals. We bill by the hour so you can stay within your wedding budget and relax knowing that you won’t be overspending on extra event planning or unexpected venue fees.
If you’re planning a Bay Area wedding, give us a call and we’ll be happy to provide you with a complimentary range of quotes for different wedding menus and events.
