Guests are more likely wearing layers and comfier clothes, so go for colder weather feel-good foods like richer, heavier dishes: creamy pasta sauces, dark roasts with dressing and gravy, and butternut squash. For dessert? Glad you asked. Gingerbread, hazelnut, peppermint, bourbon, maple, and spiced carrot add subtle touches to any cake, cookie, truffle, or winter wedding treat flavor, filling, or frosting.
A hot cocoa bar (complete with marshmallows, chocolate morsels and maybe something to spike it) is a must-have. Chai and cinnamon tea are in-season non-alcoholic choices. Need a signature drink? Think spiked, warm cider, coffee, or hot toddies with cinnamon stick straws. Eggnog? If you’re into it.
