Menu Ideas for Summer Wedding in Wild West Style

Couple Wedding in Western Style

In case you already decided on the wedding venue and the overall wedding theme, you should start choosing the wedding menu options and blending everything together. I have come up with the useful tips on making up the wedding menu for the wild-west styled celebration. Here you will find a myriad of menu options that you can easily use in your Western-themed wedding.

Wedding Menu Ideas for Western-Themed Reception

Signature cocktails

Once the guests enter your reception, consider treating them with the signature drinks in the western theme. This way you will inform them about your Western theme and what will be expecting them throughout the night. For instance, you can opt for a 7 and 7 or a rum punch. Another option is inventing your own cocktail with a Western-themed name. Don’t forget about the non-drinkers and provide them with drinks like lemonade or iced tea.

Wedding Cocktail


Usually guests prefer to mix for a bit before eating the main dish, so it wouldn’t be an extra serving a few delicious appetizers along with your cocktails. Consider the following alternatives: onion rings, chicken wings with blue cheese, sliders, quesadillas. Besides consider serving the kabobs or skewers covered with vegetables. Make sure you have got something to eat for guests with distinct gastronomic preferences.

Chicken Wings


The first association that comes to my mind when I think of a wild west is the checkered table cover in white and red palette with the BBQ dishes. Figure whether you favorite BBQ restaurant can cater at your wedding reception. Consider the dishes like the beef brisket, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, short ribs, cornbread and coleslaw.



As for dessert, regardless of the type of dessert you choose, try to have fun with it. One of the ways is the original wedding cake decoration in the western theme. Another option is the cake pops that are not only fun, but also utterly trendy this year. Despite being one of the key wedding cake trends of this year, they could be personified by having the cake topper in the color palette of your wedding theme.
