Easy Tips for the Best Mediterranean Wedding Menu
Don’t let stress suck the joy from your special moment. Instead, take advantage of this easy guide and look for the fun in every step of the process.
Keep it Inclusive
The greatest part of a fun wedding reception involves seeing all your favorite people in the world piled into one room. Unfortunately, this can also be one of the most common sources of stress.
There’s no way around it: planning a menu to please people from vastly different backgrounds, cultures, and lifestyles can be a challenge. It’s natural to want your guests to enjoy themselves during this event, but avoid the trap of people pleasing. After all, this day is yours.
Rather than attempting to cater to every person’s individual preference, create a menu so inclusive that everyone can find something to love. In so doing, offer a menu that every guest can enjoy equally, free of worry or guilt. By sticking to food items prepared on a compassionate, cruelty-free basis, you present an opportunity to keep every guest full, happy, and focused only on celebrating your union.
Take Advantage of Mezze Options
Who doesn’t love a good dip? A tasty finger food? To make the most of your vegan Mediterranean wedding menu, take advantage of all these cultures have to share with snackable Mezze options.
Nutritious, delicious, and small enough that guests can easily mingle as they munch, a tray of dips, veggies, and other bite-sized treats: a mezze tray is the key to kicking off your reception in a way no guest will soon forget.
At Anixi, we offer a wide assortment of mezze options, including five classic Mediterranean dips served with an assortment of housemade breads. For hot mezze, we offer even more variety. Your guests will adore the opportunity to choose from among such options as artichoke tots, crispy “lamb” cigars, or “beef” dolmas, all served steaming and cruelty-free.
Hoping for cool, crisp alternatives that your guests can enjoy in between dance breaks? Allow us to suggest our crowd-pleasing, Arak-cured “salmon” or a serving of our beet and citrus salad.
No matter what you need, Anixi is ready and excited to serve.
Add a Few Homemade Dishes
Unless you’re planning an incredibly small, intimate gathering– and, let’s face it, even then– preparing all the dishes for your full spread alone can be expensive, time-consuming, and worrisome. It’s for this exact reason that the majority of couples invest in the help of a catering service which we have available.
However, just because you’re reaching out for help, that doesn’t mean your wedding menu must be a hands-off affair.
By providing just a few small, well-chosen menu items of your own to the mix, you can ensure that your guests know you care. In doing so, you also add a touch of your own personality to the mix; food is at its best as a shared experience, and with a few simple recipes, you easily enhance that for every guest.
Once again, Anixi is here to help. Read through any of our easy, at-home recipes to find vegan Mediterranean dishes perfectly designed to feed a crowd, without breaking your budget.
