Unique Meal Ideas for Your Big Day

Unique Meal Ideas for Your Big Day

We've all been to a wedding where the food was sub-par. The venue may have looked great,
and the couple was madly in love, but all you could think about was how cold and tasteless your lasagna was!
Why choose from the same old same old when you can knock the socks off your wedding guests with these specialty food options? Let the team at MacGregor Downs surprise you with how affordable these selections are, while you surprise your guests with an extra-special touch to your big day!


 

Brunch It Up

morning and then follow it up with a reception complete with these fun breakfast ideas.

 - Brunch Board
 - DIY Omelet Station
 - Biscuit Bar

Wok It

A chef attended Asian-Infusion station will allow your guests to customize their meal,
suiting even the most refined palates. Aunt Sally isn't a fan of sweet chili sauce so she can have
her meal prepared with minimal spices while Uncle Bill can load up his noodles with all the
Sriracha he can handle! Below are just a few ingredients that you can select from.

 - Noodles, Rice
 - Chicken, Beef, Tofu
 - Carrots, Green Beans, Mushrooms

 - Onions, Peppers, Broccoli

 - Honey-Soy Glaze, Sriracha, Sweet Chili Sauce, Garlic Aioli
 

Taco Bout a Party

Tacos

Street tacos are popping up everywhere — at your favorite local eatery, at that hole in the
wall up the street, and at your favorite food truck. At your run-of-the-mill wedding, though?
Not so much! Our street taco bar is out of this world delicious and will allow you to spice up your
big day! Check out some of these amazing toppings and let your guests build their own masterpiece.


 - Onions, Peppers, Cilantro

 - Grilled Pineapple, Lime Wedges, Jalapenos
 - Tomatoes, Lettuce, Carrots, Black Beans 
 - Grilled Chicken, Diced Carne Asada
 - Garlic Aioli, Cajun Ranch, Pico de Gallo
 - Soft Corn or Flour Tortillas
 

Meat and Potatoes

Feeling a little extra? Any way you slice it, these unique carving stations will add a burst
of flavor to any meal! The meat lover in your life will thank you when they bite into a
perfectly cooked cut of prime rib or savory ham. Make it even more special by adding a mash-po-tini bar!

 - Bone-In Bourbon Glazed Ham
 - Roasted Chimichurri Beef Tenderloin
 - Roasted Turkey Breast

 - Slow-Roasted Prime Rib
