Love Thanksgiving Food? Serve These Dishes at Your Wedding

Here’s an idea: Use Thanksgiving favorites as inspiration for your reception menu. You can serve an entire holiday meal in new and delicious ways. (Think cranberry cocktails, turkey sliders and mini-apple pie favors.) Find your favorite Thanksgiving dish below and see how to adapt it to fit your wedding menu!

If You Love Green Bean Casserole…

Serve crispy fried green beans during your cocktail hour.

If You Love Sweet Potatoes…

Give out sweet potato fries in paper cones at your reception! You could also create a sweet potato bar where guests fill a martini glass with mashed sweet potatoes and top them with marshmallows and cinnamon. From the album: A Classic Fall Wedding in Middletown, CT

If You Love Cranberry Sauce…

Have a cranberry fizz cocktail with vodka, ginger beer and fresh cranberries as your signature drink. (Recipe here.)

If You Love Mashed Potatoes…

If you can’t decide between chunky and smooth mashed potatoes, serve homemade potato chip bites topped with cheese and chives. From the album: A Rustic Mountainside Wedding in Avon, CO

If You Love Butternut Squash…

If you feel like the butternut squash soup starter could be your entree, try a savory (and healthy!) quinoa and squash side dish instead. From the album: A Lovely Vintage Wedding in Granville, OH

If You Love Turkey…

If You Love Pecan Pie…

At your reception, dish out pecan pie — it’s just too good not to! From the album: A Vintage Casual Wedding in Ann Arbor, MI
