If you’re getting married and planning your wedding, there are so many details you can have fun with. From the decor to the menu, weddings are all about bringing people together and experiencing love and celebration however you want to see it. So you deserve to have the wedding you want. One that matches your values and personality.

And that’s why an organic wedding menu could be great for you, especially if you’re someone who cares about healthy living and environmental awareness.

Whether you’re vegan, you try to eat organic, or you’re simply organic-curious, there are so many unique catering options for your wedding menu that you can look into while you plan. Some of them are probably foods you already love — so going organic might be a bit more accessible than you think.

Why Organic?

One of the first things you may be thinking about is why to cater your wedding menu with organic options in the first place.

Not only is organic, healthy food better for the environment, but it’s also better for your body. Even in the moment, unhealthy, heavy, and processed foods can make you feel bloated and weighed down — which isn’t ideal for a wedding.

Meat and dairy can be inflammatory, and sugar can imbalance your body’s pH levels, which isn’t the most comfortable. By including organic, healthy foods on your wedding menu, you can be kind to your health, show care to your guests and help planet Earth, all at once.

1.  Salads

No, not your standard side salad. When you make the salad a main menu item, there are so many filling, gourmet ways to go about it.

Include luxurious fruits, hearty grains, and flavorful dressings. From ginger dressings to avocado spreads and zucchini noodles, there’s no shortage of creative ideas out there.

2.  Risottos

Risotto is a grain at heart, but there’s so much more to it. It has a great gourmet appeal while still being filling, and you can absolutely make it organic. Serve with veggies or even over that aforementioned salad for a rainbow of flavors.

3.  Buddha Bowls

Did someone say “rainbow of flavors?” Look no further than the Buddha bowl. Buddha bowls include a variety of ingredients ranging from veggies to legumes to fruit and grains. Think sweet potatoes and chickpeas over kale with a delectable dressing.

They’re served cold, which makes Buddha bowls a great option for summer and spring weddings, afternoon weddings, and more casual celebrations.

4.  Vegan Tacos

Tacos tend to be a smash hit with everyone. Again, this is a great option for casual weddings, but it can really get the job done almost anytime. You can include anything you want in a taco, so making things organic, vegan, gluten-free, or compatible with any other diet you require can be reasonably easy.

Saying ‘I Do’ to Going Organic

Going organic isn’t for everyone, but if you want to serve up healthy, beautiful, and carefully prepared food that will make your guests feel good from the inside out, you can do so much with your menu. From salads to tacos, organic food is always a flavorful experience.
