Are Charcuterie Boards Good for Weddings?

  • 3 min read

Weddings are absolutely beautiful and endearing. They celebrate the union of two people who love each other and plan to spend the rest of their lives together. The reception following the ceremony is the newlywed's first appearance in society as a married couple. The bride and groom dance and mingle during this time, truly living it up with friends and family. A major part of the celebration is the food, which guests often remember most about your special day. 

Planning for your big day can be stressful, choosing what to wear, where to hold the ceremony and reception, who to invite and what to serve guests to eat. Many food options are available, but one thing that is easy to include is a charcuterie board. They offer many choices in one single appetizer. They are also gorgeous sitting on any table and can add to the beauty of the day plus, hungry people don’t dance! Start your reception party by filling your guests' bellies with gourmet charcuterie's delicious flavors and texture.

Why You Need Charcuterie at Your Wedding

Not only is charcuterie delicious, but it’s an excellent option for wedding reception food, whether you serve it during the cocktail hour, during the main course or both. Here are a few solid reasons to make sure you have grazing board appetizers at your post-nuptial party:

Taste - It’s no secret that uncured meats and cheeses are a delicious treat anytime. Paired with dried fruits, olives, crackers and nuts, this combination of finger foods appeals to most taste buds, and your guests will surely enjoy grazing on gourmet charcuterie boards during your wedding celebration. 

Flexibility- When food options are limited, a charcuterie board provides additional dining options and allows guests to customize their plates based on their preferences. A perfect example is a vegetarian guest; they can skip the meat and choose only cheeses, fruits, crackers and other non-meat accompaniments.

Visually Appealing - Artfully arranged grazing boards are so visually stunning they can do double duty as a centerpiece and a hors d'oeuvre. The variety of colors and textures can compliment both the decor and the other foods being served.

Social Interaction - Often, there are people at weddings who don't know each other and offering an interactive food option gets guests chatting and sharing their favorite stories about the newlyweds. A grazing board allows guests to eat and mingle at the same time.

Timeless Appeal- Traditional cheese and charcuterie boards are a classic food that can complement various wedding themes and styles. A well-curated charcuterie board can fit effortlessly into the overall aesthetic whether your wedding is rustic, contemporary, vintage, elegant or Bohemian.

Accommodating - Easily serve large groups with multiple charcuterie boards placed around the wedding reception venue or on each table, ensuring easy access for all guests. 

Easy to Serve - Cheese and meat appetizers don't require staff to serve them. Once the boards are set out, guests can help themselves with the food items.

Choosing a company that creates a beautifully balanced board with top-quality ingredients is important when opting to include charcuterie boards as part of your wedding reception fare. High-quality foods help ensure your guests have a memorable experience on your wedding day.
