Just like an exam paper or a CV, you need to read through your card a million times (well not really, but as many times as possible)! There might be typos that you might have missed, little details you’ve forgotten to include and such. So check, check and check again! This way you can deliver only the best to all your guests and share the joy of this day with everyone that you love and care for! Food plays a major part of almost anything, anywhere you go. Where there is food there is laughter, there is chatter and there is enjoyment. And that is exactly what you are trying to create at a wedding ceremony. So here are some tips to help you plan a good menu for your guests attending your big day!
Set a budget
When you know you have a limit to things then you would try to work around it while making sure you don’t go overboard. Such restrictions also pushes you to find the best alternatives for a lower cost but of a high style. So when it comes to the wedding menus it is necessary that you plan out a budget beforehand. And to make sure that the budget is more practical, considering what you would like to serve, how much of it you would want to serve, the guests attending and such could help work around this limit better.
Start picking out the best
With wedding planning, you should never wait for the last moments. Doing so, would not only push you to compromise unwantedly but would also end up turning out much horrible than whatever you might have been planning for. So talk to different caterers and try out their menus and compare the price ranges as well. Be open to different options of theirs and this way you would be able to serve something that not only goes with the theme but is unique as well!
Take the guests in to account
The number of guests that you plan to invite for this day, also determines the cost you would have to incur on the menu and what you would be serving. If it is a small crowd of ideal wedding invites that you have distributed, then you can afford to serve posh gourmet food that might be really expensive but worthy, however if there is a large crowd of people, then expensive gourmet food should never be on ‘to consider’ list. This is not only highly costly but is also silly to spend on too.
Find the allergies or list the ingredients
There might be people who are lactose intolerant or allergic to nuts or some other kind of thing, and on your wedding day you definitely don’t want their allergic reaction to take the light away from you. So do make an effort to find out beforehand on any allergies any guest might be suffering from. You could also list out the ingredients in the dishes in little display cards for them to know whatever that has been included. But the only problem with this is that it works efficiently if the food is served in a buffet style, however it doesn’t mean you can’t try it out with other styles!
