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 Apple Pie (Seriously Who Doesn’t?)…

If you can’t wait for the plates to be cleared and the dessert to be served, give your guests mini-pie favors baked in small mason jars! From the album: A Rustic Chic Wedding in Kansas City, MO

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

    Hey! I really loved the idea of chunky mashed potatoes topped with cheese and chives. I am working in a wedding catering services company and I’ll definitely put this one out to our menus. Thanks for sharing!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
