Selecting the right menu for your wedding or event, but first decide the style of the #catering you require, formal or informal? A three course Wedding breakfast serving your guests at their table or a meal served as a buffet ?
If you’re working to a budget a buffet style service will save you some money versus the plated meal option, less waiting staff will be required but the buffet will also offer you more choice on the menu without eating into your honeymoon fund!
Don’t think of a “buffet” as a selection of curled up sandwiches with lifeless fillings (well that does depend on the caterer you choose!), many dishes you see from various menus can be adapted and served as a buffet. Cooking a barbecue menu as seen an increase in popularity over the last few years, again if done properly it can offer some very exciting combinations not normally seen at a traditional wedding.
On a hot summer’s day, why keep your guests cooped up in a warm marquee open up the marquee and allow the smells of freshly cooked barbecue food to fill the tent, cooking outdoors will inspire the party mood feel to any wedding.
Some caterers publish set menus whereas others allow you the flexibility to create your own, think about the menu choice and discuss the options available. Multiple choice courses or menus will cost more than one set menu as usually more equipment and staff may be required. All caterers should offer a vegetarian option and also take the dietary requirements of your guests seriously.
If you establish the menu before you send out your invitations you could firstly, advise your guests of the intended menu and secondly invite your guests with any dietary needs to make you aware, in my experience any guests with any special dietary requirements will be the first to point it out.
