Celebrations are not complete without sumptuous meals to feast on. That being said, weddings menus should not be taken lightly, it’s not enough that your guests’ stomach are full, it’s also important that they are pleased and satisfied with what they were served.
When that happens, you’ll have people talking about how great your wedding is, not just the ceremony itself but with the reception too, even after how many months have passed. So if you’re done planning on how to feed their eyes with a heart-warming wedding rite and beautiful scenery, time to shift your gears on the menu.
However, there are times where you become too obsessed with Pinterest wedding menus that you forget that it isn’t all about pretty food pictures, what really matters is the dining experience of your guests.
Since catering will eat a sizable portion of your budget, make sure that everybody’s happy with what you’re putting on the table and not serving these following dishes.
Aside from the amount of time that it will take for the caterers to get them done, you also have to consider the fact that you’re guest may not love it if the have to fuss over their food before they can actually eat them. Or that having to ask the chef about every ingredient because no one can recognize the dish isn’t exactly appetizing. It’s a wedding, not The Most Out-Of-This-World Food Showdown.
Eight Course Meals
Trying to impress everyone with an eight course meal is probably not a good way to go either. Keep in mind that guest will want to get up, enjoy, catch up with other guests and experience the entire wedding. Keeping them all glued to their chair trying to down all those food will stop them from doing those. A three course meal would be a better idea.
Now isn’t the time to show off your unique inclination to raw foods. You might really be passionate about its health benefits but remember that you’re not the only one eating. You have a guest list which majority of them is possibly a lot more into cooked foods.
Just because you don’t want to cause any food related problem, doesn’t mean you have to stick with the staple wedding menu. You can still include some fun dishes that your guest may have just tasted for the first time. Or do your own version of some typical dishes to add a twist to their dining experience.
Meat All The Way
You’re only gonna be married once, so you want to make your menu special. We have this notion that special meals consist only of meat, however, a straight meat menu is likely to leave a bad taste into people’s mouth. Your wedding can still be special even if you maintain a nice variety of dishes to serve your guests. Inject some fish, chicken and vegetable dishes into it to accommodate most people possible, especially those who are trying to avoid meat.
