When it comes to weddings, we know that the details and decisions you and your fiancé will have to make are numerous and diverse. However, we feel that there’s one area of wedding planning that is not to be overlooked: food. And so, because we’re here, as always, to help you in whatever way we can in this adventure, we’ve got just a few foodie recommendations for your wedding in Nebraska.
The Main Course
From food trucks to plated dinners, wedding catering options are all across the board lately. Trends may change, but we really want to do is help you find a Nebraska wedding catering company you can count on. Country Catering serves central and western Nebraska, and is well known for their gourmet appetizers and mouthwatering smoked meats. The company’s buffet displays are on par with top culinary presentations, and everything from informal barbecue to black tie hors d’oeuvres is well within their range of cooking skills. Meanwhile, Brandeis Catering covers everything from brunch to cocktail hour style receptions, serving up food from their eastern Nebraska location in Omaha.
What’s your sweet tooth saying? From cupcakes to cookies and everything in between, dessert is a highlight for any wedding reception. Bliss Old Market Bakery is far and away an Omaha favorite for decadent dessert tables, and their sweets can be customized to fit any flavor profile. Cakes, pies, and cupcakes headline their menu, and gluten free and vegan options are available. We think their hot chocolate cupcake sounds like just what we’d need for a wintry reception, and the ginger peach cupcake practically screams summer night.
While selecting a rehearsal dinner location is a task that doesn’t typically fall to the bride and groom, it’s great to have a suggestion or two up your sleeve in case your future in-laws need a helping hand. In Lincoln, we think the Lodge at Wilderness Ridge and The Nebraska Club are both elegant options. Omaha’s Upstream Brewing Company is an area original and serves tasty fare alongside local brews.
