Gluten Free Wedding Food Options

One of the best parts about a wedding, besides of course the start of a new chapter and a happily married couple, is none other than the reception. This is the time for mingling, dancing, and a time to enjoy some tasty cuisine. When it comes to the food, deciding on the best catering options can be challenging, especially when you need to cut out gluten from your menu. Having gluten free food served at your wedding is not a problem, and you will still be able to serve yummy favorites that your guests will enjoy. Below are some gluten free wedding food options to have at your wedding reception.

Tomato Caprese Skewers

A tasty bite size portion, with grape or cherry tomatoes, some basil, and mini mozzarella balls, will look and taste absolutely amazing.
