Tacos, Wedding Catering on a Budget in Sacramento

When catering a wedding in Sacramento, the budget may sometimes be tight for feeding hundreds of guests. With tacos in the mix, catering for larger sized groups suddenly becomes affordable. Quite frequently we are asked to come up with a catering plan to feed anywhere from 30 to 300 guests. Often budget is of primary concern but so is the quality of food. It’s why often times people looking to save on money but not on taste choose Mexican food. Always a crowd pleaser, lets face it – you can’t go wrong with Tacos. Serving the classic Mexican dish at weddings is a *major* trend right now, and we couldn’t be happier. However, if you are going with Mexican food in your catering plan, and plan on adding a taco bar – you can even incorporate the cuisine into your wedding dessert. In fact, we’ve got 10 different inventive taco-inspired ways to enhance your wedding food game.

1. Gourmet Fixin’s: When having anything semi-casual, such as a taco bar at your wedding, you want to keep it authentic. To accomplish this impact, invest in gourmet toppings that go beyond pico de gallo and guacamole. Some of our favorites include radishes, onions, and jalapenos.

4. Salsa Magic: When you’re putting together your taco bar, think about the salsas you’ll serve. These, like your fixings, should be stylish and gourmet to add to an overall upmarket atmosphere.

5. Taco Bowls: While you’re at it, set out some bowls at the taco counter and allow your visitors to assist themselves. This will be perfect for healthy dieters who don’t want to eat a tortilla, and it can include a variety of delectable ingredients such as ground pork, avocado, and charred corn.
