Choosing the right catering for your big day
Wondering how best to feed your guests on your wedding day? Check out our simple guide to choosing the right catering options.
A wedding is always going to be an indulgent affair. There's champagne to toast the bride and groom, wine with dinner and often drinking and dancing well into the early hours. But with your guests indulging in all that alcohol, you'll need to make sure there's something tasty and tempting on hand to soak up all the booze.
Wedding catering can be a confusing world to delve into; with so many different options available, how to choose the one that's right for you? A good place to start is with your local wedding fair. You'll find scores of local caterers manning stalls and giving out free samples, so you can have a taste of what's available and see what you like. Also most good catering companies will arrange a private tasting session for brides and grooms, so there's no need to commit to anything before you've tasted their creations.
Catering on your big day isn't just about what you like, it's about the comfort and happiness of all your guests too. So even if you like something unusual like sushi or really spicy curry, make sure there are plenty of alternative options for guests with less adventurous palettes. A buffet is a good way to get around this, with a choice of dishes from different cuisines which guests can pick at throughout the evening. Traditional options like hog roasts or barbecues are also becoming more popular, but make sure there are plenty of options for vegetarians too. If you're getting married at a hotel or restaurant they may well present you with a selection of dishes from which you can design a menu for your guests. Try and make sure these are as varied as possible: one meat, one fish and one vegetarian is the traditional choice, although these days it is common to make the vegetarian dish also cater for those on vegan and gluten-free diets.
