So your big day is just around the corner, and you want to make sure that everything goes perfect. You may have picked out your dress and the flowers, but now it’s time to figure out what you’ll serve your guests at your wedding. 

Your reception is the big party of your wedding, and you’ll have guests traveling miles to be with you on your special day. 

It’s pretty obvious you want to treat them with the right food to make the event fun and memorable.

While you can go with some of the traditional foods for your wedding and be just fine, why not surprise your loved ones with some unique yet incredibly delicious food? 

Read on to discover some unique food ideas to serve at your wedding reception and make the event cherishable for everyone!

Taco Buffet

Taco buffets can be a great way to serve a crowd, no matter what size they are. You can have the tacos already put together, with different options like chicken, beef, and steak laid out to make it easy for guests to choose what they want. 

You can even add some of the toppings to make the line go faster, though it takes a little longer to set up. Have some different options like lettuce or no lettuce, and then let the guests feast.

You can also offer more choices of filling. Layout everything you’d like to provide for the guests on the table and let them make their own tacos. 

From choosing their own meat to their own toppings, this can be super fun and satisfying! But, of course, you can do the same with other types of food, including pasta and pizza.

Hire an Australian Food Truck

If you want to make catering easier and help your guests get some of the foods they want at your wedding, an Australian food truck will be an excellent option to help you out here. 

The type of food truck you go for will determine the food that you will have at the event. Many will provide your favorite Australian snacks to the guests and can be a big hit along the way. Make sure to order through them early on, so they don’t get fully booked by someone else! 

Aussie Hand Pies

Looking for unique and scrumptious foods at your event? Try Aussie hand pies!

These hand pies are small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, and a few of them are enough to fill up your guests. 

They taste so good that it’s hard to get your hands off those! Simple and tasty are just two words to describe these pies, and you’ll be so happy that you added these to your list. We promise!

Made out of ground beef or steak and some tasty potatoes and vegetables, these are sure to be a big hit. You can find many caterers who will provide these, or you can order some online to add to your meal at the wedding. 

The best part is, they come in a massive range of flavors to choose from. You can even customize a few as per your and your guests’ taste buds! How cool is that?

Donut Station

Donut walls with different spreads have seen a growth in popularity over the years. This is because you can do so much with donuts, and it is easier to put them together than a giant wedding cake that you need to split up between all of the guests. 

More so, they come in fun flavors that you can set out into a particular design to look suitable for the pictures, and guests can just come on over and pick out the type that they need. The perfect idea when you want to provide some dessert, but you don’t want to go with the wedding cake options!

Grazing Table

Another option that you can choose to have at your wedding is the charcuterie board. It can be a great addition to your wedding that still provides many choices for your serving meal. 

Whether you want to go all out and serve it as a main dish or as an appetizer, you can do loads that will fit onto the board as well. 

These giant meat and cheese spreads are growing in popularity and will be a crowd-pleaser to those who add them to their wedding. Add in a variety of different foods (there are no rules really to what you can or can’t add to the mix), and add some tongs and other utensils to keep it all sanitary, and you’re good to go!


If you’re looking for a homemade meal to serve your guests, you can go with steak or fish or some of the traditional options. But if you want something different, then a classic Italian lasagna is a great option to go with. 

The best part about lasagna is that it’s easy to swap out some parts of it, such as making it vegan for some of the guests, without it being a big deal, or ordering a whole new dish for those with special dietary needs.

Choosing the Right Foods for Your Wedding

There are so many great foods that you can enjoy for your wedding and make your special day, way more special. Mixing up and trying out some unique foods that everyone is sure to love can make your party a blast. Try out a few of the options above and see what great options they can be!
