Snippet and Ink creator, Kathryn joins us again today with her last Polka Dot Groom mini board on a brilliant subject- food! Check out her previous boards here Personality, Comfort and Fun & Games.

Food: Of all the elements that go into a wedding, food and beverages are probably one of best places to showcase favorites of both the bride and groom.

1. If the groom loves sports, why not have sports-related treats passed around after dinner. Here, a vendor reminds guests of an old-time baseball game. Cracker Jacks and peanuts are another baseball snack; nachos and hot dogs would make for a fun late-night bite. (photo from Rebecca Thuss )
2. Does the groom have a favorite dish that his mother or grandmother or uncle is known for? See if your caterer can include it in the dinner, or set up a dessert buffet including his favorite sweets… (photo from Pronovias via Brides)
3. Alongside a signature cocktail, why not serve the groom’s favorite beer? Buying one type in bulk is also a great way to save money. (photo from Details Event Planning )
4. There’s no reason hors d’oeuvres have to be stuffy. Miniature versions of the groom’s favorite foods, like french fries or lobster rolls, are a fun option. (mini hors d’oeuvres by Callahan Catering)
