Weddings Done Well: Culinary Checklist

The big day is finally here, and that means packed schedules and full itineraries. Proper nourishment is key to getting all you have to accomplish done, so we’ve mapped out all the stops so you can get your culinary fixes at Highland Park Village before, on and after the big day.

Welcome Your Guests With a Local Touch
Give your out of town guests a Texas welcome by leaving locally made treats from Royal Blue Grocery in their guest rooms. A bag of Have’a Corn Chips and a jar of Guac with a Twist, accompanied by a couple bottles of refreshing, fizzy probiotic tea from Holy Kombucha are the perfect after flight snack.

Guac with a Twist, Have'A Corn Chips, Holy Kombucha fizzy probiotic tea in Blood Orange and Green Apple Ginger. All locally made and available at Royal Blue Grocery.

Last Laughs with your Bridesmaids
Grab your girls and book a private wine and cheese tasting at Molto Formaggio. Sip and snack in the intimate specialty store while learning about fine wines, cheeses, food accompaniments and desserts.

Enjoy a class of Red Car Rosé of Pinot Noir Syrah with your favorite cheeses and dried fruit on the patio at Molto Formaggio, or step inside and take a private class to learn about wine and cheese pairings.

Burgers and Beers with the Boys
K.T. Burger is the perfect spot for the guys. There, the groomsmen can enjoy burgers, tacos, steel-cut fries and a full bar in the laid back dining area or corner patio.

With over 15 beers on tap and a vast bottle selection, you have plenty of options for a cold brew at KT Burger.

Take Time for an Afternoon Pick Me Up
Snag that needed burst of caffeine or a refreshing cup of tea from Starbucks to get you through the eventful weekend. Take advantage of mobile ordering to make pick up a breeze.

Perk up with a grande caramel macchiato or cool off with a tall green tea lemonade. If you find yourself nearby after 12pm on Saturday or Sunday, opt for a glass of wine or craft beer instead.
