You should definitely also include some fresh cherries for your summer wedding. And if you tip them in white chocolate then you have just the perfect little dessert for your guests.

(5) Barbequed Chicken Breast with Mango Salsa

Naturally, a summer wedding is nothing without a bit of barbeque. If you want to ensure your guests don’t leave your wedding hungry then go with a grilled menu. For instance, serve up some barbequed chicken breast together with a spicy mango salsa.

Fresh, summer potatoes are also a divine addition for a summer wedding. If you make a hearty potato salad and serve it together with some sparkling wine, you’ll have everyone asking for more.
