The simplest way to know the kind of cuisine or dishes to prepare is the season and weather or climate of the day of the wedding. There are some foods that are most served during summer while others are much suitable for winter.

Some good examples are beef steaks with potato salad with green garnishes or simple smashed potatoes, grilled salmon with puree of any fruits of your choice, chicken fillet with sour and cream sauce plus mixed vegetable salad. Summer and spring usually have the same kind of dishes to prepare. When the wedding happens during fall or winter, have something that can balance the weather of the occasion.
