Whether you’ve already booked your wedding caterer or are still considering options, you’re starting to think about what’s going to be on the menu. But half the time, it’s hard enough to decide what to eat for dinner on Tuesday night – let alone what to serve at your wedding! So here’s our five-step guide to designing the perfect wedding menu.
What’s Your Theme? If you’ve chosen the motif ( and we recommend that you use it!), use this to guide your choices in deciding on the menu for your wedding. The hog roast, for instance, is a great option for a relaxed outdoor gathering; however, it’s not ideal for a wedding with a black tie, which is when you’re likely to have elegant desserts and canapes.
Do (Most) People Like It?
There’s a reason why chicken is a popular favorite food item for weddings! The more adventurous choices like lamb, venison, veal, and lobster could be conflicting and can result in a few guests consuming the food they’d rather stay away from. There are two choices to choose between something safe (and obviously, the type of food you choose will depend on what you, as well as your guest, are accustomed to) or give them a few alternatives to ensure that there’s something to suit all.
Do You Like It?
It’s your wedding day – then what are you planning to eat in celebration of getting married to the one you love? Be aware that you’ll require catering to the preferences of at least a couple of guests. If you are able, make what you’d like but also offer alternative options for guests who don’t have the same preferences.
Will It Keep You Full?
It’s not a good idea to fall into an eating disorder prior to speeches. However, we’d steer clear of light bites in favor of something that has at least something substantial. Keep in mind that weddings can go through the night, and the ideal scenario is for your guests to go to McDonalds to grab a late-night snack! Also, we’re certain those guests drinking will enjoy the opportunity to fill their bellies…
Is It Low Risk For Allergies?
Suppose you can keep away from common allergens such as soy, shellfish, and peanuts, in particular, if one of your guests may be at risk. Even if it is possible to provide them with a different option, avoidance of allergens can put your mind at ease.
