What's Your Wedding Reception Style?

Before we get to your reception catering, let's talk about the style of wedding you want - your style influences not only the menu, but most of the details of your Big Day, including the venue, type of ceremony,  reception decor, even your choice of china, tablecloths and florals.

Weddings can be grouped into 4 basic styles: Modern, Classic, Bohemian, and Rustic. Click on the images for detailed descriptions of each Houston wedding catering services styles to consider.

Modern Weddings Feature Clean Lines, Unexpected Touches, and Attention to Detail


Classic Weddings Feature Elegance, Traditions, and Grand Backdrops


Boho Wedding Cake with Monogrammed Topper


Rustic Weddings Have Charming Homey Elements, Like Chalkboard Signs and Family-Style Service


Take The Style Quiz

Here's a fun quiz from across-the-pond to help you find your wedding style.

Pro Tip:

Don't know where to start? Create the first draft of your guest list. Many venues are designed as blank canvases for you to put your signature style on, and finding the one that comfortably fits your number of guests is a priority.

All-Inclusive Package or A La Carte Pricing?

It's your choice - we do all-inclusive packages as well as a la carte catering. Just let your A La Carte Events & Catering planner know whether you've already selected vendors, and which ones, so we can fill in the gaps for you.

Interested in Houston wedding catering services or la carte pricing? We're happy to work side-by-side with your other wedding vendors to create your perfect day.

We believe that a good caterer is going to make sure you have everything you need for your wedding reception. And regardless of which option you choose, you shouldn't worry about whether there's a knife when it's time for the cake cutting ceremony - that's our job.

The upside of an all-inclusive package is that is limits the number of details and vendors that you have to manage. At A La Carte Events & Catering, we strive to be flexible and easy-to-work with, so it really is up to you how much you want us to take care of.

Need a Venue? We can Help!

We have relationships with a number of wedding venues across the Houston area – from modern urban rooftops to serene estates overlooking manicured gardens. Allow us to suggest a venue that matches your vision for the day and your personal style. Want to get married in a historic landmark? We can do that too.

A La Carte isn't just a wedding caterer. About half of the events we do each year are for corporate clients, so we see dozens of unique venues that typical wedding caterers do not, including public festival spaces, warehouses, fields (yes, fields), private manses and art galleries. There's a hidden gem just waiting for you.

Pro Tip

Most venues will allow outside caterers. We're licensed and insured. If we set the venue appointment, we can usually get any fee waived.

Wedding Venue of your Choosing

Have a specific venue in mind? We will arrange a site visit with you and the venue contact to ensure we understand what is required to work at that venue and we will collaborate with them to ensure no detail is missed.


Planning Your Wedding Menu

Before sending you a one-size-fits-all reception package, we want to learn about you.

  • What's your wedding style?
  • What time of year will it be?
  • What's your cultural heritage? What about your soon-to-be spouse's?
  • Do you have favorite foods you'd like to share with all of the special people in your life?

Your planner takes your answers to Chef Gabe to craft your menu.

A few years ago we had a rustic bride getting married at One Tree Manor. We suggested serving a whole roasted pig, and as guests arrived for an outdoor wedding under the huge oak tree, they were greeted by the smell of crackling pork drifting across the gardens. It set the tone for their entire celebration that evening.

Another memorable menu was for a couple with Texas and Louisiana roots at the Heights Fire Station. The bride was marrying a boy from Texas, and their menu incorporated nods to both cultures, complete with Gulf shrimp and authentic meat pies imported from Natchitoches. The families bonded that night over love and food.

Pro Tip:

Get a day-of planner. She's worth every penny, and spends the entire week before your wedding focused specifically on YOU. Your caterer takes care of the reception, and your day-of coordinator takes care of your ceremony.
