Planning a wedding is never simple. There are so many things to think about and the one thing that haunts all couples preparing for their wedding day is their wedding budget. There are many things you can skimp on like your wedding flowers, wedding invitations and party favors. However, the one thing you must never skimp on your wedding day is the food. Here are wise tips to get to make sure this doesn’t happen.
Explore your options
You have probably attended a couple of weddings yourself and you may notice that most weddings serve classic chicken, pork or beef dishes. While these dishes are called classic for a reason, you can explore out of the box and try to serve dishes that are not your usual entrées. Look at the menu of your caterer and look thoroughly at all your options and see what will be memorable for your guests.
Stylish food presentation
The presentation of your food matters as much as the taste. Food presentation is a remarkable aspect of any wedding. You can coordinate your wedding theme with your caterer to give them ideas on how to style and decorate the buffet and wedding tables. Guests will be spending most of their time seated on their tables so it is important that your table and food decorations are pretty to look at.
Be generous with portions
One thing you must ensure is that your guests leave your wedding reception happy and satiated. Nothing is more embarrassing than running out of food to serve your guests. You do not have to serve expensive and gourmet dishes on your wedding. Choose food that is tasty, filling and enough to leave a lasting impression on your guests.
Fortunately, there are cheaper alternatives for expensive choices. You can choose to serve fish which is cheaper than chicken or beef. You can also choose less expensive meat cuts instead of expensive ones without compromising the dish.
Incorporate your personal taste
You can incorporate your food preferences on your menu to add a personal touch to your wedding. You do not have to stick to the traditional wedding food choices. If you and your partner love pizza, you can have a pizza table that can go with other meal options. Choosing personal food items that are important to you as a couple will make you wedding more meaningful.
