One of the most exciting & delicious parts of wedding planning Is deciding on and sampling your wedding breakfast and evening food! There are so many different options to choose from now that people are willing to stray from tradition so here a few options to consider… Are you traditional? If the answer to this question is Yes then you're likely to opt for the three course wedding Breakfast that is a firm favourite of wedding caterers and guests alike! With a pate, soup or salad to start, chicken or beef for main and pavlova or sticky toffee pudding for dessert… what's not to love?
There are however a few ways to make your wedding breakfast stand out. Why not have a sharing starter with options similar to those on a tapas menu? Not only do your guests get involved in sampling what's to offer, they are also more likely to remember this over a soup or salad option. Another way to spruce up your three course menu is to have a trio of desserts.. yes that's right, a TRIO! Are you willing to risk the weather? Another option to consider is a BBQ or hog roast menu. Typically cooked and served outside, these options create a much more relaxed feel to your day and with a BBQ option your guests also get a wider choice of what they'd like to eat on the day. Most venues will also have a contingency plan in case the weather isn't ideal for outside food service but always check with them just in case! Are you thinking outside of the box? If so, then fantastic! This is a great way to represent yourselves as a couple and is guaranteed to stay in your guests memory. Whether you both love a specific cuisine, an exotic meat or a unique combination of flavours we would also say, go for it! Be the couple that offers something different to their guests and that gets people smiling. You may need to prepare yourselves for the cost that comes with a bespoke menu but don't be afraid to ask your caterers to create a menu within budget that offers something different. All in all, your menu should be what you as a couple like to eat, don't feel the need to bow to pressure from an opinionated family member that only eats chicken or is terrified by vegetables. Your caterer will be able to adapt the option to dietary requirements and guests with allergies will always be catered for. So enjoy the process, taste the food and fill your stomachs up!
