One’s wedding is arguably one of the most important days in your life. As cliché as it might sound, it’s the truth. It marks the beginning of a new journey with you and your better half, committing yourselves to one another for entirety. It’s a truly beautiful celebration and one that should be remembered for the rest of your life. But remember, the big day isn’t just about you two; you’ve got to cater to your friends and family as well, and they’re a fussy bunch!
It’s All About the Food!
I’ve been to many weddings in my time and I’ve ranked each and everyone based on the food. It’s not about how tall the cake is, how funny the best man speech is or how people slip money into your card: it’s about how awesome the food is. – No pressure though…
Plan Thoroughly and Budget Well
Don’t panic though, hopefully you’ve set a date which leaves you a reasonable amount of time to get something solid in place. With affordable wedding catering you should be able to serve the perfect food at your wedding, without breaking the bank.
Of course, it’s about finding the right balance isn’t it? Lord knows how much money has already been spent on your wedding so far, so the last thing you want is to spend a small fortune on the catering. Fortunately, there are many companies out there who can provide a wonderful culinary experience, without costing you an arm and a leg.
Choose Your Style
The question is, how do you want the food to be presented? Are you going to have a sit-down meal? 3 courses a piece? Or would you prefer to have a more casual DIY buffet style dinner? Or perhaps you want to take advantage of the beautiful weather (fingers crossed) and have yourself a massive BBQ? There are many different ways that you can cater for your wedding, it all just depends on the sort of vibes that you’d like to give off.
Some people are opting for the more casual ‘fun’ wedding, as opposed to the formal sit-down dinner. A popular favourite in the UK at the moment, is fish and chips (believe it or not) and ice cream vans. It’s a novelty for sure and it’s certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s thinking outside the box and trying something a little different from the traditional style of catering.
The main thing is to ensure that everyone has their fill. With a buffet you can generally cater to more tastes and dietary requirements so there’s generally less complaints. When it comes to a sit-down meal, you always have the select few who complain about everything. Again, know your audience and don’t you dare get it wrong! They’ll never let you forget it if you do. Again, no pressure though.
