Wedding Planning in Kansas City

Ceremony, dinner, dancing. The three main sections of any traditional wedding and reception (and the three most important agenda items, if you ask us). Each is important, and each requires its own set of planning details and decisions – and we haven’t even mentioned the accompanying décor. However, in a city that rates as high on the national foodie scale as Kansas City, we must admit that our focus is currently on wedding-related edibles. So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite sources of tasty cuisine for your Kansas City wedding.

Wedding Reception Catering in Kansas City

From al fresco style eating to elegant celebrations, hors d’oeuvres to plated dinners, Brancato’s Catering does it all and does it well. One of the most highly acclaimed catering companies in the Kansas City area, Brancato’s takes great pride in keeping up with the most recent industry trends and remaining on the cutting edge of culinary arts. Their service and quality are exceptional, and the variety of cuisine provided and presentation are hard to beat.

Kansas City Wedding Cakes

We love a good wedding cake. The tiers, the frosting, the textures, and – of course – the cake cutting ceremony. But we also believe in having options. Aunt Mary’s Bakery has managed to perfect both. Cookies, cupcakes, and pies all join the traditional cake display at this source of Kansas City confections, and each option is fully customizable. We’re not sure we’d be able to pass up on one of the shop’s mocha cupcakes with chocolate mousse filling.

Rehearsal Dinners in Kansas City

For your rehearsal dinner, we can’t help but suggest you take a step towards casual atmosphere and incredible food with a Kansas City tradition: barbecue. Sweet, smoky, and caramelized in sauce, Kansas City barbecue is one of the nation’s predominant styles of barbecue, and the city is home to nearly 100 restaurants specializing in the savory, smoked fare. K&M Bar-B-Q, Arthur Bryant’s, and Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue are all at the top of our list.
