Popular Wedding Food Trends Are Giving 2020 Weddings A Lip-Smacking Upgrade

Weddings in India aren’t just the union of two people–they are a massive celebration of two families coming together, an establishment of status quo, money, and power. It’s no wonder that families are spending lakhs, sometimes even crores, of rupees on lavish wedding ceremonies. 

Forget the different functions, bridal outfits, decor, and the alcohol supply; food is THE most important aspect of any big fat Indian wedding. Well, in a bid to really make a social impression, desi fams are going truly overboard with new and creative food catering. Here are the best wedding food trends you should be tapping in on this 2020:

1. Same ol’ desi dishes, brand new presentation

We’ve all loved the panipuri counters, the jalebirabri stalls, and even the good old pan counter. Our innate desi-ness hasn’t changed but our ways have definitely been modernised. Deconstructed chaatspanipuri shots, keema/kabab burgers, and even dehydrated paan sweets as mouth fresheners; it’s all in the presentation in the 2020 weddings!

2. Do it yourself counters

Live pasta counters are so 2019! The new DIY angle added to the wedding buffet is food counters–salads, soups, pasta, chaats, and even desserts where you lay out a spread of different fresh and cooked ingredients for guests to mix-and-match for themselves according to their likes. 

3. Fresh beverages

Of course, serving Rooh Afza, Coca Cola, and jaljeera soda drinks were a lot of easier, budget-friendly and fuss-free. But if you’re spending lakhs on your wedding food, you may wanna work on those drinks you serve along with it too! Mocktails like mojitos, blue lagoons, freshly-squeezed juices, and even an iced tea, make for a classier addition to your large spread. 

4. Going truly international

Including noodles and pasta is no longer the only sign of going truly international. The wedding catering business is currently thriving on gourmet dishes and unique global cuisines like Mexican, Italian, Japanese and more. Sushi counters, Korean BBQs, and South American mains have infiltrated the Indian wedding food menu.

5. Staying close to the roots

As much as families are diversifying their choices of cuisines and flavours, the true food connoisseurs are also staying close to their traditional roots. Instead of multiplying your food options with international cuisines, people are now keeping various regional foods on display–like live South Indian dosa counters, local Bombay street food like vada pavschaats, Gujarati dhoklas, Bihari litti chokhas, and more.

6. Sweet over savoury
