2017 Wedding Food Trends

Food has become a very important part of wedding receptions for today’s couples. Not only is the dinner menu of concern, but many couples opt to include late night snacks or favorite food inspired favors for their guests. Below is a list of our Wedding Experts’ favorite wedding food trends for 2017.

Moonlight Menus

Andover Country Club WeddingsOne of the biggest trends we see for weddings in 2017 is to include a light snack style menu at the end of the big celebration. Usually, these menus are full of snack foods, desserts, and finger foods. Our Moonlight Menu features fun and creative foods that are perfect for refueling after a long night of dancing. Whether it’s a churro station or french fry bar, your guests will love these delicious treats and will appreciate having things to snack on at the end of the night!

Doughnuts
Weddings at Andover Country ClubApple Cider Doughnuts aren’t just for breakfast anymore as they’ve become a popular item we see on wedding dessert tables or as guest favors. These sweets are our favorite for New England Fall weddings and give off a “home-made” and nostalgic feel your guests will love.

Signature Cocktails

AL_sneak peek_0005Signature cocktails are a fun way to personalize your reception. To pick the perfect signature cocktail, start with your favorite spirit and try to find a recipe you both love. You can even match your signature cocktail to your wedding colors to keep with the theme. We also like the idea of offering a nonalcoholic “mocktail” for those who don’t drink!

Real Weddings at Andover Country Club: Alyssa & Brian

On February 18, 2017 after eight years of dating, Brian and Alyssa wed at the Immaculate Conception Parish in Newburyport, Massachusetts and held their wedding reception at Andover Country Club on Boston’s North Shore. The couple met at Bentley University while Alyssa was visiting a friend and sparks flew.

How Alyssa Said “Yes”

Alyssa and Brian got engaged on July 3, 2015 on Seabrook Beach during the sunrise. Brian’s family owns a beach cottage there, so it was an extra special spot for the couple. Afterwards, friends and family came over for an engagement celebration!

The Details

  • First Dance Song: “I Got You” by Jack Johnson
  • Wedding Reception Decor & Theme: The couple didn’t have an exact theme, but went for a simple and romantic style. Family and friends were incorporated into the decor through a picture display of the couple’s favorite memories. The bridesmaids wore black strapless, floor-length dresses by Bill Levkoff, with the groom and groomsmen in black suits. The bride and two maids-of-honor carried red flowers with the remaining bridesmaids carrying white flowers. Centerpieces were beautifully simple with mercury flower pots and white hydrangeas and roses reseting on circle glass mirrors.
  • The Food: The couple had a plated salad to start, but decided to go with a buffet for the main course. Guests were given a variety of food stations to choose from, including: Sirloin (carved to order), Baked Haddock, Chicken Picatta, Roasted Potatoes, and Spring Vegetables. There were two separate buffet stations so guests weren’t waiting in line for their meals.
  • The Dress: The bride’s dress was Stella by Maggie Sottero in all white with a corset back. It was the last dress Alyssa tried on at Precious Memories in Malden, Massachusetts and she knew immediately it was “the one.”
  • The First Look: The couple went with a traditional approach and skipped the “first look.” It was very important to Alyssa and Brian that they first see each other at the altar.

The Couple’s Favorite Moment


Alyssa and Brian’s favorite moment was during their first dance song. The bridal party was standing in line with their arms around each other swaying back and forth, singing Jack Johnson’s “I Got You.” The couple noticed and we started singing along.

Biggest Wedding Day Fears

The couple was most nervous about forgetting to execute certain details, but, in the end, everything worked out perfectly fine!

The Wedding Planning Experience at Andover Country Club:

“Everyone was so helpful at Andover Country Club. They did an amazing job at making sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day of the wedding. Kate Crayton was our coordinator and she helped make my vision for the day a reality. The front desk was also so helpful and accommodating while we were booking the hotel rooms for our guests.”

Their Wedding Planning Advice: 

“Organization! Being organized will create less stress in the month/week leading up to your wedding. It can’t hurt to plan in advance and check things off the list ahead of time. I used the checklist on The Knot to help me stay on track with the planning. To the groom, planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, especially if it’s just one person doing all the work. I was very lucky that Brian actually enjoyed (some) of the wedding planning. It was fun to share our vision of what we wanted for our big day and making it happen. Lastly, have fun! Planning a wedding should be a happy and fun time not a stressful, tiresome experience.”

Why We Love New England Country Club Weddings

Dramatic golf course views, classic elegance, and a private setting are just a few reasons why we love country club weddings.

Country clubs seem like a traditional and safe choice when it comes to wedding venues, but the benefits these spaces offer can be very appealing to the couple who wants it all. Here are a few reasons why we love the classic appeal country clubs offer to those about to say “I Do.”

 

Epic Golf Course Views

Andover Country Club WeddingsCombine a sunset and golf course greens and you have the perfect backdrop for wedding photography. At Andover Country Club, we even provide couples with a “Just Married” golf cart as a cute photo prop (and for means of transportation around the grounds).

 

Gourmet Fare

Andover Country Club Menu

Many country clubs are known for the high-end quality of their cuisine and for having  a variety of menu options. While you may think food costs would be out of your price range, many clubs will work with each couple individually to determine a package cost that best fits their clients’ needs. We do this with many of our couples and not only is it budget friendly, but it makes your wedding day completely customizable.

 

Luxurious Ballrooms

Andover Country Club Ballroom

Classic ballrooms offer everything a couple could need in a ceremony or reception space. Built in dance floors and bars, tables and chairs, all the necessary space for band and DJ equipment, lighting, and a weather friendly alternative. Indoor spaces also offer extra decor elements such as uplighting, open air photo booth space, chandeliers, and extravagant linens.

 

Golf, Enough Said

Andover Country Club Golf Course

For couples that enjoy playing golf, country clubs offer the ideal spot for planning a wedding weekend. Getting a round of golf in before the rehearsal dinner or ceremony is that more convenient and is a great activity to shake off any nerves.

A Venue That Has It All

Getting married at a country club means you won’t need to solicit much help from other vendors. We offer our couples outdoor ceremony space, ballroom reception space with tables, chairs, and linens, uplighting, an in-house culinary team, on-site hotel rooms, a bridal suite, and complimentary wedding planners.
