The wedding catering is that “pinch of salt” that can turn any wedding from an ordinary one to an unforgettable one. Do you know how to make this happen? Here is out top advice on how to use the wedding catering as your secret weapon to a one-in-a-lifetime wedding memory:
Let it mirror your style as a couple
Nothing says “boring” more than a standard wedding menu that’s picked just for the sake of it. When your guests attend your wedding, they’ll expect to find you in every aspect of the wedding planning. Just like you wouldn’t choose a wedding dress that’s not in your style, you shouldn’t pick a wedding menu that’s not mirroring your style and beliefs as a couple. Are you a vegetarian couple? Reduce the meat offerings in favor of some healthy vegetarian alternatives! Are you into raw foods? Be creative and include some raw servings or add some smoothie options at the bar – your guests will be pleasantly surprised!
Be mindful of who you are feeding
It may come as a surprise to you, but, if you haven’t planned things in advance, you may end up feeding up to 20-30 people that are not on your wedding guest list! To prevent this from happening, be sure to cover this topic with all participating parties (wedding vendors, band, photographers, etc). It’s also a good idea to come up with a simpler menu for them and keep your caterer in the know about it.
Always choose quality over quantity
When it comes to food and drinks, it’s always best to count on quality. Nobody will remember the number of dishes, but they will all remember their taste. That’s why we recommend that you concentrate on a smaller number of foods and drinks without compromising on their quality. This will guarantee you happy wedding guests and a stress-free wedding day full of tasty food and heart melting memories.
Don’t let it ruin your day
We all know how stressful it can get when it comes to wedding planning. Multiply that stress by 4 and you’ll get a vivid picture of the wedding day itself. Don’t let anything insignificant like a slightly different shade of cake frosting ruin this special day for you. Get you eyes on the big picture instead – you just got married to the best man in the world! Your guests are happy; your relatives are beaming with joy and your friends… Well, by the time they’ll see the cake, they’ll have had too many drinks to notice the difference anyway!
