To know things will go as smoothly as they can on your wedding day, you need to begin the planning as early as possible. Working with a wedding planner is a great way to make sure this happens; and, you’re selecting the best wedding food for your wedding day. But, what should you consider as you’re planning the menu? These are a few ways to ensure you’re selecting the best wedding food to serve your guests.
As we mentioned, the earlier you plan and prep, the better the menu is going to be. When you have figures in mind, know who is attending, and when you work with the right caterers, your wedding day menu will shine.
How many guests?
This is part of the planning process. It is a good way to give the caterers a round figure, so they know what to prepare and how much. They’ll also determine what spices, seasonings, and other ingredients to add to the mix, based on the information you can provide.
Are there dietary restrictions?
Vegan or vegetarian restrictions? How about any food allergies in the room? You need to indicate to the chefs and caterers if there are food allergies, dietary restrictions, or if guests don’t like certain items. This will result in safer food service for all, and unique menu guests will also appreciate.
Seasonality is the best approach?
Choose foods, veggies, fruits, and ingredients that are in season. Work with the chefs to know what’s in season, as this will result in fresher taste for the foods they prepare.
Who’s the chef?
You want to work with a catering company with a solid reputation. And, you want to choose a chef that caters to your palette. Therefore, work with your wedding planner to set up a few taste tests, so you can determine what you like, what you don’t, and who the right company is to cater to the food service.
What’s the Style?
Sit-down dinner? Buffet, all you can eat, self-service line? These are a few options you might consider when selecting the foods/menu for your wedding day. Determine this in advance so you can create a menu that stands apart from other weddings you’ve attended.
Selecting the best wedding food for your wedding day doesn’t have to be a mystery. Work with the right planners, and you’ll see everything come together so that you’re happy with the food service, and all other aspects of the wedding planning process.
