6 Yummy Food Trends You NEED At Your 2016 Wedding

Food glorious food… Obviously our tummies are number one priority at any bash, so you better look after us with these yummy food trends!

Crepes & Craic

Crepes & Craic

What better way to charm your guests than freshly cooked crepes and a bitta craic from none other than a French chef! Whether it’s traditional lemon and sugar, fail-safe chocolate or savoury, Olivier will bring the magic of Brittany to your special day. Rumor has it he’s also a fantastic dancer and he’s now offering 20% off Crepes and Craic for your December 2015, 2016 and 2017 wedding! Book by November 30th 2015.


Food Trends - Pizza

We are partial to a slice of the good stuff, or five! The sight of a pizza emoji even makes us feel all fuzzy inside. Wood-fired staples such as margarita and pepperoni will go down a treat or if you’re aiming for a classier option, provide a self-serve station where guests can pick their own gourmet toppings. Check out Pizza Base and Dave’s Wood Fired Pizza for private hire food trucks.



The perfect snack to match the crisp autumn weather. Cornude wins artisan popcorn hands down for Irish weddings and events. Choose from flavors such as melted marshmallow, maple pecan and much more.


Studio DIY

We will never tire of the donut tower. Ever. From favors and dessert tables to an alternative wedding cake, these stacks of sweetness have us sold every time. Put on a colourful display with bright drip icing, yummy toppings and glittering cake toppers. We are obsessed with all the fab recipes over on Studio DIY.

Bin the Prosecco ladies, champagne is back with a bang for your toast – and candy floss cocktails are oh so pretty! Get some inspiration from these scrumptious delights over on Lauren Conrad.

Oysters & Gin

Gin, gin, everywhere! This pop-up bar is set to be 2016’s biggest wedding trend thanks to more couples shying away from boho and rustic themed celebrations. Slaying it in the UK over recent months, it’s only a matter of time before it filters across to our neck of the woods. Nothing screams glam like a G & T in your paws. Just be sure to check with your wedding venue beforehand to see if they will allow you hire an outside server on their premises.
