During all the wedding planning procedure, select food for your guest can be one of the funniest parts of the wedding, meanwhile, it is a stressful part as it would cost a certain amount of money. Here are some tips for you to choose the food for you big day.
1. Decide if you like a dinner of buffet. Buffets provide your guests mingle opportunity while dinner is more formal. And buffet style tends to be more cost efficient.
2. Consider your guests dietary restrictions and preferences. Have a cousin that’s allergic to nuts? A friend who’s vegan? Discuss any special restrictions with your catering company, and be sure to have at least one option that everyone can enjoy.
3. Offer the more expensive indulgences in smaller portions. If you’re looking to cut costs, offering beef or seafood as an appetizer rather than an entree is a great way to save.
4. Stick with your favorites, since it’s YOUR day! Your wedding is unique and special to you, so don’t order foods that you hate. Do still keep others in mind when choosing, however. If sushi is high on the list, consider serving it as an appetizer rather than the main course.
5. Keep in mind the time of day that you’re having your reception. It wouldn’t make much sense to have a dessert reception during lunchtime, or tea sandwiches for dinner. Also consider the theme of your wedding. Black tie? Don’t serve ribs. Going rustic? Steer clear of the formal dining options. Beach wedding? Think seafood and cool refreshments.
