Wedding Food

When it comes to the planning of your wedding day, you are going to have a number of jobs to do and one of the most important decisions you will make is the wedding food that is going to be served on the big day. You need to think about what time you and your guests will be eating on the day and then you will have to consider the type of food to order. Your budget is going to have an impact on this.

When it comes to the day of the wedding, you need to decide whether to go with a morning reception, a lunchtime reception or an evening reception and this will play a role in the type of food you choose.

Morning Receptions
If you are going for the morning reception then you will be glad to know that this is probably the most affordable option. There are plenty of choices that you will have such as pastries, omelets, pancakes, bagels, smoked salmon or cheese and meat.

Lunchtime Receptions
If a lunchtime reception is something you would prefer then you could opt for soups, sandwiches, wraps, pies, or a finger food selection such as cocktail sausages, vol au vonts, chicken goujons, fish goujons etc. You could then have a desert buffet to go with it including small pastries, fruit tarts, éclairs, and mini cookies.

Evening Receptions
The most expensive wedding reception will be a sit down formal meal for all your guests but you could also opt for a buffet style menu with a range of different food items. If you are going for the three or four course meal for your guests then a lot of venues will ask you to choose a set starter and dessert and will then give you two options for the main course. With so many guests to cater for, it is easier for the venue if they only have to cook one or two main courses.
