What Cheeses for Wedding Reception?

  • 3 min read

You were proposed to and said YES! Let the wedding planning commence! With an endless to-do list and a plethora of decisions to make, this is both an exciting and stressful time. During the planning stage, you set a budget, choose a date, secure the venue, create a guest list, and so much more. At some point, you'll have to choose the food that will be served during the reception. You may think all food is created equally, but the dining experience at your wedding is actually one of the most important elements of the entire event. Not only should the food taste good, but the presentation must also be impeccable.

Selecting the right menu for your wedding is a daunting task. Well-fed guests will have an unforgettable experience chatting, dancing, drinking and laughing. Don't overlook quality to save a few dollars and disappoint your guests. Adding cheese boards to your wedding menu can add elegance, sophistication, and a touch of indulgence. Knowing what cheeses to serve will ensure your guests have a variety to sample and enjoy.

Best Cheeses for Wedding Reception Appetizers

When creating a cheese board for your wedding reception, the selection should be diverse so there's something for everyone's palate. The sweet and savory accompaniments you choose must pair well with your cheese selection. Here are several cheese types to consider including at your wedding feast:

Soft Cheeses - Goat cheese, Brie, Mascarpone, and Camembert are mild, delicate and creamy. They spread easily onto crackers and bread and pair perfectly with grapes, berries and figs.

Semi-Soft Cheeses - Havarti, Monterey Jack and Fontina have a smooth, creamy interior and range from mild-flavored to pungent. Pairs well with fresh or dried fruit, berries and nuts.

Blue Cheeses - Roquefort, Stilton and Gorgonzola offer a sharp, tangy, bright flavor profile. They pair well with olives, honey, nuts, apples and pears.

Fresh Cheeses - Mozzarella and Ricotta deliver a mild flavor that pairs well with fresh vegetables, fruits, honey and sweet jams. Feta offers a tangy and salty flavor that ranges from mild to bold. It pairs well with watermelon, grapes, veggies and nuts.

Hard Cheeses - Remember to include the robust flavors of Cheddar, Gouda and Parmesan. These cheeses pair well with cured meats, olives, pickles and apples.
