1. Pass Around Buffets
The pass around buffet is one of the best things to happen in Indian weddings. So this year, the stress will be on heavier snacks instead of your regular spring rolls, kebabs or anything else. The whole idea is to replace the main course dishes with heavier snack items. Hence, as a part of the main course, expect to be served with bite sized portions (though the heavier ones) as snacks. Lasagne, risotto and other main course items will be passed around as small servings that you would just pick with a stick and eat. Well, with so much convenience offered while eating, this clearly makes to our list of favourite wedding food ideas, what about you?
2. Summer Refreshment

So, Fork ‘n’ Spoon shares with us a great idea on how you can keep your guests refreshed and energised in a very unique way. Well, let them have some refreshing ice lollies. Yes, you read that right! Fruit ice lollies are not just for the kids. They can make even the adults go weak in the knees. To take it to another level, Fork ‘n’ Spoon suggests to serve them with everyone’s favourite shaved ice and finely chopped fresh summer fruits like mangoes, watermelon and litchis. You can even serve your guests with fruit infused ice cubes to make their drinks even tastier and interesting.
3. Theme Buffet
These days, many couples plan their wedding around a particular theme. The venue, décor, food and everything else ought to be in alignment with that theme. Clearly, this concept opens doors for many interesting and unique wedding food ideas. Sufi and Bollywood themes are the most preferred ones this season. So, if you too are opting for the Sufi theme for your wedding, you can have Mughlai cuisine to match the food style with rest of your celebrations. On the other hand, if you want to have a Bollywood style wedding, then you can serve your actors’ favourite dishes. Or you can take your Bollywood fever to the next level altogether by serving the dishes named after your favourite Indian movies characters.
4. Deconstructed Dishes
Deconstructed food is pretty big in the west and catching up quickly in India as well. As the name itself suggests, your food is presented to you in a deconstructed way. In this, the main elements of a dish are served to you separately. So, you have to assemble the dish yourself. We must say this is one of the most exciting wedding food ideas of the year. Not only will it allow the guests to mix ingredients as per the preferences, this ‘do it yourself’ activity is also going to be a hell lot of fun. So, get set to see a lot of deconstructed taco bowls, Raj Kachori, salads and much more at Indian weddings as well this year.
