Growing up, when we're imagining our weddings, we dream of the dress, the flowers, the venue and the music. We plan who we'll have as our bridesmaids and try to figure out who will be waiting for us at the alter. But what we don't usually think too much about until we're engaged is the food, and food is a major part of your wedding day!
When I was planning my wedding, it was really popular to have a candy bar and I absolutely loved the idea of having a fun food display. We also entertained the idea of a popcorn bar for a while, and we even talked about how we decorate the table. Ultimately, we decided that our guests wouldn't be too crazy about either of these options. In the end, we went with mini cheesecakes that our caterer provided along with our wedding cake, and it really fit well with our style of wedding. This experience really got me thinking about how big of an impact food can have on your wedding!
If you're the kind of person who wants to incorporate their wedding colours in ways that go beyond simply bridesmaid dresses and flowers, there are countless opportunities just waiting for you. To help you get started, I've compiled a list of my favourite ways to add colour to your wedding day menu!

8. Crafty Cookies
I have yet to figure out how the talented people of the world make such intricate designs on such tiny cookies, but the results are always incredible. The colours turn out so vibrant and bright, and they are simply so impressive. Just imagine how these would look as part of a dessert buffet at your wedding reception!

9. Summery Salads
Who says bright, colourful and fun has to mean filled with sugar? Fresh salads, especially when topped with a little fruit, can make a perfectly pretty addition to your guests' plates. The spinach and strawberry salads pictured above are a great choice if you're looking for a way to lighten up and brighten up your menu.
