They say who you will marry is all in the stars. And for those looking to host a star-studded event you may want to look to your stars to help you determine your wedding day style and what you may want to “dish out” for your guests. Here are a few suggestions for a truly customized culinary experience for you and your guests.
Aries: This star sign is known to have wind beneath their wings and their feet. They are eager to embrace life at its fullest and take it on, head on. Aries are also passionate about adventure, can be impetuous, impulsive and spontaneous. She is certainly FUN to be around. So, when it comes to fare with a fare, think timely and trendy and even a little “frivolous” for an Aries (bride) wedding. Consider wood-fired pizzas, food trucks, tacos, etc.
Taurus: Known to like the finer things in life, Taurus (brides) are bound to enjoy eclectic tastes and enjoy being wined and dines and want nothing but the same and the best for their guests. These ladies are also down to earth and hard-working women with ethereal tastes and a love for the elegantly understated with a hint of haute. Consider serving simple fare is a FABULOUS way..After all presentation is everything. We recommend Canapes on a silver platter…local artisan cheeses in a fancy stacked cheese-wheel cake and local artisan beers and wines in a silver bucket for example.
Gemini: This lady is for the most part a people person and social butterfly who aims to please not only herself but others. She is quick-witted, articulate and a master of conversation and entertainment. She had plenty of panache and ideas just ready to take center stage….and she can participate in and elevate almost any situation. Still this gem of a femm is frequently misunderstood as she is a straight shooter who shoots for the stars. She is inherently curious and creative and drawn to what is chic and can do both posh and understated elegance. Think a posh but nature inspired grazing table for this lady with plenty for her guests to choose from. After all HER motto truly is “the more the merrier”.
Cancer: This lovely lady is a traditionalist in the sense that HER sensibilities revolve home and family. She is for the most part dainty and feminine and like all things “girly” such as plush pillows, cozy bedding, hot cocoa and ALL the comforts of home. She is sentimental and sensitive and in touch and in tune with those around her and her environment. While they may sometimes come across and disengaged or disinterested in details they are actually rather compassionate with a protective side. For this type of bride the ambiance is just as important as the appetizers… and she puts just as much thought into creating the perfect backdrop as she is into crating the perfect plate. Think bohemian chic for this beaming bride in a “rustic” yet “regal” environment with lots of cozy yet couture embellishments. You will also want to think family style meals with plenty of family favorites.
Leo: Leos are strong, leading ladies with powerful personalities and opinions. They are chic and charismatic and enjoy being the center of attention. These females are also fiercely protective of their brood, friends and family and they put their heart and soul into everything they do. She likes to be the life of the party and while she is ambitious and determined she is equally as determined to live life to its fullest and have fun. When it comes to a Leo bride’s wedding she wants it to be memorable but not necessarily in a pomp and circumstance sort of way, but in a more playful manner. Think exotic foods from exotic cultures and trendy “foodie” items with plenty of flavor and flair.
Virgo: Virgo girls tend to be perfectionists. She is extremely detail oriented and organized and she wants thinks to run smoothly. She also tends to be focused on health and wellness and tends to be an eclectic eater. For a Virgo girl her wedding should be not only about good taste, but a tasteful event full of good and healthy foods. Think nuts, fruits, organic and artisan breads, and farm to table foods.
Libra: Libra ladies are quite well balanced and are all about keeping harmony and peace. They are all about excellence and symmetry and they are naturally attracted to nature and its abundant beauty. While they are about the finer things in life, they are not flashy or ostentatious but they aim to please (virtually everyone). Libras do upscale but understated elegance best, understanding that often less is more think not only healthy options but some of your favorite classics with a healthy twist or spin and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options as well.
Scorpio: These sophisticated ladies are dynamic and determined. They are confident and know exactly what they want and are not afraid to “Go For It”. These ladies are powerful and a force to be reckoned with. Think daring dishes and plenty of exotic options such as decadent desserts and sexy but sophisticated drinks.
Sagittarius: Sagittarius sweethearts are out for fun and adventure. Their passions lie in experiencing life, travel and adventure. They are THE jet-setters of the zodiac signs. They are also chameleons, adapting to most any environment or situation and probably the most “politically correct” of all the other signs as they prefer to fit in rather than stand out. They are easy-going gals with a flair for the fantastic who are also fun-loving, happy-go-lucky ladies with a bit of a “wild” side. Think a fun and flavorful menu with dishes with a “history” and a culturally diverse culinary selection.
Capricorn: This Saturn-ruled sign is hard working but resilient. These zodiac dreamers tend to dream big and strive hard to make their daring dreams a reality. These ladies tend to be more reserved, dare we say refined and stick true to “tradition” and don’t mind all the pomp and circumstance. For these ladies, think fanciful fete with plenty of flair and finesse. Consider a sophisticated and chic six or seven course sit down meal with a upscale yet traditional selection on the menu.
Aquarius: This water sign is known for being a bit edgy and eccentric. These ladies are movers and shakers who love the unconventional. Think about have a buffet style selection with a gelato bar and maybe a make-your-own station. Basically think outside the box.
Pisces: This sign tends to be dreamy, artistic and whimsical and don’t much care for convention. These ladies also have a serious romantic side and are all about exposing their sweet side to the world. Think about a lavish dessert table with plenty of pastries and decadent desserts.
