When it comes to food (and let's be real, dessert) at weddings, we take things VERY seriously. Take, for example, our wedding food bar ideas that make for a gorgeously delicious reception. Or maybe even our non-traditional takes on a wedding cake. Whatever wets your whistle, we think everyone can all agree on one thing: food is a majorly important part of the guest experience on your big day. Now, YOU may not have a ton of time to savor every bite as you rush around greeting your guests during the reception, but if you want your family and friends to have an exceptional time, we recommend serving some exceptional eats.
But what makes certain meals so "exceptional," you may ask? Well, we wondered the same thing since wedding food tends to get a bad rap. So we reached out to our Instagram followers and asked one simple question: "What's the BEST thing you ever ate at a wedding?" Answers ranged from savory to sweet, and some were more predictable than others (we're looking at you wedding cake lovers!). Read on to find out what foods our readers will never forget.
