The first three elements are all about a couple’s vision of their day, whether they want a traditional wedding decked out in all white with classical music or a modern theme wedding full of color and pop. But the trickiest element is the food. Any wedding menu needs to balance the needs of guests, the desires of the couple, and the newest, most innovative catering trends.
