b"NostalgiaAccording to OFD CONSULTING's Ely, nostalgia is it for weddings in 2023. Expect it to touch upon every aspect of the big dayfrom the decor and venue choice to the menu selections, says Ely. Bear in mind that this generation, a mix of young millennials and Gen Z, will be pulling from the 70s, 80s, and 90swhich to many of us may seem too recent to be considered nostalgic (sadly, its not!). I dont see this trend disappearing any time soon; statistics have shown us that during times of uncertainty, nostalgia can actually provide comfort.Couples are more conscious than ever when it comes to the impact their wedding has on the environment, says Chris Sanchez, managing partner of LUX CATERING & EVENTS in Salt Lake City, Utah. With sourcing still a challenge, couples are looking for sustainable and renewable options. Many couples are placing a big focus on a regional and locally sourced menu.Chantal Hause, owner of FABULOUS FOOD in Phoenix, says her clients are also looking for locally Sustainable Diningsourced menus, as well as options for guests with dietary needs (dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian and and Serving vegan). They prefer the food to be served on eco-friendly dishes made from natural, renewable resources.TOP LEFT PHOTO AND BOTTOM RIGHT 26 CATERING, FOODSERVICE & EVENTS cfe-news.com PHOTO BY CAROLINES COLLECTIVE"
