One Wedding, Three Budgets, Limitless Pleasure

The dress. The flowers. The spirit of eternal love and commitment. But most importantly, The Food. Planning your wedding is a balancing act between the visions of your Pinterest board, and keeping reasonably within budget. Fortunately All Occasions Catering is excited to guide you toward a menu that satisfies both needs. Selecting the perfect sequence of courses is a cinch with our thorough array of genres, price points, and palate teasers. Let’s take a look at what we can do with three budgets and your guests’ range of appetites. 

Budget $: Indulgent but Reasonable

Specialty Themed Dinner, Two Plattered Appetizers, Dessert Bar, Late Night Snack Bar

All Occasions Catering | Milwaukee Wedding Catering

Imagine as your 200 closest family and friends grab a frosty beverage and make their way over to the fresh and approachable appetizer display. An inviting charcuterie of Wisconsin cheeses, pretzels, nuts, and breads, offset by crisp garden vegetables keeps the conversation flowing until you’ve made your grand entrance. Later while toasts have left not a dry eye in the house, a dramatic Pig Roast buffet is revealed, accompanied by Yardbird Thighs, Sauerkraut Parsley Redskin Potatoes, Cattle Drive Beans, Mini Cob Corn, and Bubb’s famous Slaw. As the conga line grows, our team rolls out the ever popular S’mores Bar complete with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, York Peppermint Patties, and Andes Candies. On your way outside for a breath of air and a dance floor cool down, grab yourself a bite from the Soft Pretzel Bar and your choice of Beer Cheese, Honey Mustard, and Chocolate Sauce dips. 

Budget $$: A Dash More Lavish

Formal Buffet, Two Passed Appetizers, Dessert Bar, Late Night Snack Bar

Increased budget begets increased variety, in this case treating your guests to a finely tailored menu with a kick. As party people approach, they are greeted with Beef Brisket Tostadas with Chimichurri and Cotija Cheese, as well as a traditional southern favorite, Andouille Shrimp Pockets. With difficulty showing restraint, you then queue in an orderly fashion for a culinary tour from Baja to the Bayou. Start with the Mojo Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast and Roasted Jalapeño Cream, with an accompaniment of Blackened Salmon and Peach-Poblano Sauce, and vegetarian Sweet Potato and Black Bean Stir Fry with Harissa Cream and Crispy Chickpeas. Opt for larger plates to include each side you have selected, Lime-Cilantro Corn with Cotija Cheese, Roasted Root Vegetables, fresh Garden Salad, and Traditional Mac ‘N Cheese. A range of sweets dot the dance floor border with All Occasions’ Silver Dessert Platter, featuring Chocolate Fruit Mousse Cups, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Assorted Mini Cupcakes and Cheesecake Bites, and a fun range of Mini Bar Bites. For a zesty recharge, your guests visit the Ultimate Macho Nacho Bar, loaded with Bubb’s Beef Brisket Taco Meat, sombreros not included.

Budget $$$:  The Decadent Binge

Plated Entrees, One Plattered and Three Passed Appetizers, Dessert Bar, Two Late Night Snack Bars

Swing for the fences with a full service dinner showcasing some of All Occasions Catering’s finer fare. Greet your guests with an amuse bouche selection of Mini Crab Cakes with Tomato-Onion Jam, Smoked Corn Beef Crostini with Horseradish Cream and Cucumber Pico, and Green Tomato Bruschetta with Mint Aioli. Engage in expert level family networking over our beautifully crafted Mediterranean Platter, featuring Grilled Vegetables, Roasted Garlic Hummus, Assorted Olives, Flatbreads, and Pita Crisps. As you nosh, your emcee requests everyone be seated, to be served their choice of Door County Duck with locally harvested cherry marmalade, three potato hash with seared pork belly and caramelized fennel, grilled asparagus, balsamic reduction, or the Herb Crusted Pork, with sour cream and chive mashed potatoes, green bean bundles, and cranberry glace. Your less carnivorous guests won’t go hungry as they are treated to Vegetarian Gnocchi with leeks, dried cranberries, sweet potatoes and goat cheese, and a brown butter sauce. Despite the better judgement of their stressed zippers, your guests later indulge over the Platinum Dessert Platter, brimming with Fruit Tarts, Mini French Pastries, Butter Cookies, Mousse Filled Chocolate Cups, European Torte Slices, and Rugala. After the two-step but before the yawning, let them enjoy a world class snack display filled with classic Slider Burgers, Big Country Coleslaw, and a curated Popcorn Bar with your choice of four seasonings.
