Nothing brings people together like a good BBQ, which is why it's such a popular choice for weddings in North Texas. At Triple G Catering, we love bringing amazing food to the table to help couples celebrate their love. If you’re planning your wedding menu and have your heart set on BBQ food, we think you’re making a brilliant culinary choice — but what BBQ dishes should you choose to serve on the big day?
If you aren't sure where to start, we can help! BBQ catering is our bread and butter and we know what Texans love to eat.
Here are our top tips to help you pick your wedding menu. As passionate BBQ caterers based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we want you to have a menu that ensures your special day is one you’ll never forget.
Provide an Abundance of Options
When designing a wedding menu, you’re considering a variety of tastes and food preferences. To make the menu a success, choose a variety of dishes including roasted meats as well as flavorful side dishes. Fresh veggie salads and fruits, cornbread, and of course, our much-loved Triple G Corn are all great options.
You may not have lots of vegetarian and vegan main dishes with a BBQ wedding menu, but as long as you provide options, everyone will be happy. With BBQ beef, grilled seafood, poultry, and even veggies, all of your guests will be able to have a ball savoring the dishes you choose to serve.
Some of your guests may have special dietary needs. Whether by choice or for health reasons, some of your friends and family members won’t be able to eat certain foods. When designing your menu, ensure you have plenty of gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free options.
Choose High-Quality Meats
For the best wedding menu ever, the quality of the meat matters big time. When talking to the BBQ caterers you choose to work with, find out where they source their meat products from and how they store them before barbecuing. Better quality beef, pork, and poultry will go a long way in ensuring every bite your wedding guests enjoy is mouthwatering.
Make Food Fun
When you’re planning a wedding menu, you’re getting ready for one of the greatest feasts of your life. So, you want to make it spectacular but also fun. Think about the dishes you’d love to enjoy and that people can get excited about eating. Choose a mix of fun finger foods such as ribs and sliders as well as essentials for any Texas BBQ wedding menu such as steak and brisket.
Combine Traditional and Modern Flavors
In Texas, people look forward to traditional BBQ flavors. Make sure your caterer knows how to deliver with classic regional spices, BBQ sauces, and marinades. Ask about what flavors and ingredients they use to get an idea of their flavor ethos. Also, don’t be afraid of trying modern dishes. Your guests will love tasting new flavors at your wedding celebration.
Get Feedback for Your Menu
When designing your menu, don’t hesitate to ask for feedback. Both you and your partner can talk to friends and family. Find out what they think your guests would enjoy on the big day. You can also browse culinary magazines and websites that feature BBQ.
