I’m trying to incorporate my ‘everything yellow’ theme into the food and drink for my wedding but I’m having some trouble. I was thinking of flavors like lemon, pineapple, etc. but I also want to try and make the color pop. I’m looking for three hor d’ourves for the cocktail hour, salad/entree/sides for the reception, and a fun signature drink.
For example: A lemon herb chicken as the entree
Any other ideas? I really need help! Pictures would be helpful too 🙂
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

Maybe a cocktail where the main mix is Mountain Dew?…that’s bright yellow isn’t it? Not sure if that would taste good though…

A small topside of beef with some English mustard could be a fun hor d’ourves. Yellow bell peppers are an awesome yellow colour and great in salads IMO.
I can’t think of anything but champagne for a yellow drink though! Hehe.

You could have lemonade (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) as drinks served with a bright yellow lemon wedge.
Let’s see… what else? This is hard! The bell peppers were a good call. Corn is bright yellow. Maybe little cornbread squares with peach butter or some sort of chutney? I love me some cornbread.
Also, check this link out. Pic below is from here.

Aren’t dandelions edible? Maybe you could get your caterer to include them in the salad?

There are lots of yellowish cheeses for a cheese and cracker platter…you can even mix some fruit in like pineapple, and even star fruit has a yellowish tint.
For drink, you can do margaritas or I also like the lemonade idea!

I was going to say Deviled Eggs too. And yellow cake (or lemon cake) for the cake, or cheesecake often has a yellowish tint.
Corn is yellow, you could do a corn salsa or something; yellow tomatoes, yellow peppers; pineapple is yellow; sweet potatoes are kind of orang-ish yellow after being cooked; mango is yellow (mmmmm….mango sticky rice!)…
there’s a lot of yellow food!

What about using sweet and sour mix for part of the drinks? That will help for a yellowish color.
