    If you want your food to feel like part of the theme I would either go with: BBQ (meats with sides like mac n cheese, salad, cornbread) or Southern (chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, biscuits, etc) or some mix of those. Some caterers have more upscale BBQ and southern options like chicken and waffle sliders, fried mac n cheese balls, bacon wrapped scallops. Of course, you can skip the theming and go with more classic wedding dishes like chicken or steak with vegetables and rice or pasta.

    For fall, anything you want. I would think a hearty pot roast and potatoes/carrots.

    For a country theme, steaks (prime rib or chicken fried), boneless fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, bbq sandwiches, summer picnic sides (pasta/potato salad, corn, etc) , glazed carrots, etc.

    What foods do you like? What does your caterer offer?

    Hey! Fall wedding here too- I am doing a pasta bar with vodka sauce, Alfredo sauce, and spaghetti sauce. Also going to incorporate butternut squash, pies, apple cider, etc! Appetizers are going to include warmed breads, charcuterie boards, mini meat pies. I’m going for things that are warm and filling!

    I’m having a country, summer wedding. We’re serving pasta and lots of alcohol.

    I think you should serve what you like to eat, that is generally a crowd pleaser and not too messy. I don't think its necessary for food to fit a "theme" but it can if you want to.

    I would consider using seasonal ingredients, especially if you are doing farm-to-table or want to source locally. Either way, food will be freshest and highest quality when its in season. So think of a salad or dessert with apples vs strawberries, that kind of thing. Root vegetables, pumpkin, apples, etc are all in season in the fall.

    Hi! so I started trying to please everyone else but ultimately ended up choosing foods that we love and remind us of home as we are from the south. We ended up choosing fried chicken or roast, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, and mixed veggies. We also opted for a fruit and cheese table for cocktail hour.

    When I Invision a fall wedding comfort foods come to mind, southern comfort food, grilled cheese with tomato basil soup shooters, maybe a mashed potato bar, chicken, steak, for dessert you can do cobblers, caramel apples, peanut butter cheesecake, pies, if you were interested in a dessert bar

    When I think of fall weddings, I always think of cider or hot apple cider! we had a coffee bar with hot chocolate and hot cider. BBQ is always a great option for food as well!
