Firstly, wedding menu trends 2018 very much break away from tradition – but if you want a formal sit down dining experience then don’t let this year’s added sense of ‘wow’ deter you. Secondly, embrace the bizarre. The more ‘out there’ you are, the more your big day will be remembered. Wedding meals are becoming quirkier than ever, so let’s take a look at some of the biggest food trends of the year.
Weddings are notoriously expensive – if you’re not careful, costs can spiral out of control. One way to reduce the financial burden of tying the knot is to consider wedding catering on a budget. Believe it or not, it’s perfectly possible to enjoy top notch cuisine without the hefty price tag, so here’s how to keep food costs down at a wedding.
So.. and it’s a big So.., trends in wedding food are great to think about but don’t let it take over your wedding, prime example, whoever started the trend for fish & chip weddings in 2013 didn’t take into account how long this would take, so every wedding who found a willing caterer then had an up to 2 hour delay on their food service, throwing out all of the timings for the day, i.e. evening guests arriving during the desserts & speeches and probably not quite the day they dreamed of.
As a caterer I would be allowed to believe that Catering is the most important part of your wedding but it isn’t, everything has to be equally important no point having a great venue, great food and no table plan, photographer or entertainment or a comfortable chair but… and this is the important bit, the main thing the guests will remember is a good or a bad meal and especially if they leave hungry so here are a few tips when deciding on your caterer.
Apart from the venue & (sometimes the honeymoon!) the wedding food will be one of the biggest parts of your budget so it’s important to spend it wisely but also bear in mind what is involved in the catering cost itself and ensure that your quote covers everything so there are no stressful surprises before the wedding.
After all your hard work planning your event make sure the food and drink are the icing on the cake and not a disappointment
So you’ve decided to get married and the thought of planning your day will either fill you with joy or possibly horror, either way along the way there will be moments when it can all feels a little daunting.
