We’ve got some tips on choosing the food and drink that will suit your wedding perfectly.
A light bite
What time of day are you planning for your Lake Tahoe wedding? A late morning or early afternoon wedding is the perfect place for light hors d’oeuvres, followed by a champagne toast and cake. Choose a variety of foods that are easy to eat while standing and mingling – and not too messy. The Ridge Tahoe offers an amazing selection of appetizers for your wedding guests. Baked brie, an assortment of fresh fruit and imported cheeses, mini crab cakes, beef tips skewers and bruschetta are just a few of their offerings. Offer your guests a champagne toast or a selection of beer and wine by the glass. Staff at The Ridge Tahoe will even serve your guests a signature drink upon request.
What about a buffet?
Your guests will be enjoying their stay in South Lake Tahoe for your wedding. Why not treat them to a buffet meal after your ceremony? Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel at Heavenly offers a wonderful buffet menu that you can customize to suit your wedding needs. Would you prefer a Caesar salad or the tossed seasonal greens? You could choose both with the buffet option. Entrees include pan-seared halibut, grilled top sirloin steak and seafood pasta sauté to name a few – and you choose three for your guests to enjoy.
