Menu Selection – Infusing Local Flavor

One of the most memorable (and important) decisions you can make is your menu selection. It’s your wedding and you should choose the food that you want to enjoy. Be mindful of your guests, but think of yourself first. Having local flavor was very important to us!

After the ceremony, we had a one hour cocktail reception on the terrace overlooking the beach. Our menu was:

  • Cheese plate

  • Seasonal fruit plate

  • Shrimp cocktail

  • And several specialty cocktails including BahamaMamas and Pina Coladas.

From the cocktail reception, we moved to dinner:

  • Wild Mushroom and Cheese Ravioli with lobster nage sauce and fresh herbs

  • Choice of Halibut or Herb Crusted Filet Mignon

  • Warm Pineapple Tart served with pina colada dressing

  • Wedding cake (chocolate)

Depending on the destination wedding you are planning (Caribbean vs. Europe) and the number of guests you bring, you may want to infuse local flavors and ingredients into your wedding. It will make your wedding more memorable.
