Craving a wedding that feels uniquely you two? Good news: You don’t have to get swept up in a million tiny details to do it. One of the easiest and most impactful ways to infuse your personality into your big day is through your wedding menu.
Whether you want to share beloved traditions or meaningful nods to your love story, what you serve your guests is the perfect medium for incorporating personal touches. Food plays a central role in our celebrations, after all—and it’s a wedding detail you need to plan anyway.
To help you explore the sentimental opportunities your menu can serve up, we turned to Joseph’s Catering Service, a family-run event venue and catering service with more than 40 years of experience:
Break out the family favorites
If it doesn’t feel like a celebration without specific bites—say, grandma’s cookies or dad’s roast beef—then keep the tradition going. Joseph’s works closely with couples to accommodate special requests just like these, and their kitchen is stocked for replica success with only fresh, high-quality ingredients.
“If you can imagine it, we can make it happen,” says Rich Joseph, owner of Joseph’s Catering in Depew. “There are no too-small or too-large requests, only requests, and we work very hard to give our couples one hundred percent, from their first call to us to the end of their event.”
Relive a special moment
Tell a part of your story as a couple by tapping back into the food memories you’ve made together. Did you split an appetizer on your first date that you’ll never forget? Or introduce your partner to a dish they now can’t live without? Not only will these enduring attachments bring the right emotion to the day, but Joseph’s unrelenting standards will ensure serving it at your wedding adds yet another unforgettable moment to associate it with.
Serve it like you do at home
For a dose of wedding-day inspiration, look to how you normally like to gather with friends and family. Casual or formal, indoor or out, Joseph’s can capture your preferred entertaining style and mood. Love getting dressed up and setting out the fine china? Opt for formal sit-down service in one of their ballrooms. Prefer a more relaxed, help-yourself approach? Then consider family-style service for your wedding. You can even throw a refined, upscale picnic complete with lawn games in their outdoor, glass-enclosed pavilion.
Don’t forget the bar
Specialty cocktails have become a wedding staple for a reason: Pouring drinks you love is a simple, impactful way to draw personal connections. But that extends past the mixed drinks, too. You can also choose to stock options that are meaningful to you, like grandpa’s favorite brew. Sure, your guests may clamor for a taste of what you’re serving, but that’s nothing Joseph’s 40-foot bar in their Meadows ballroom can’t handle.
