Wedding reception catering – serving your guests with a twist

Despite all the care and attention taken to pick the perfect wedding venue and then to plan and organise a wedding... it will be what food was served up for the guests that will be the take home memory. Yes… of course… some will remember the dress, others will remember how touching the vows were, or how wonderful the decorations, or that funny/awkward moment.  But most guests are thinking of themselves on your special day and so will miss most of what happened, although they will remember the food and beverages! Help them remember more of your special day with these wedding catering twists.

His and Hers signature preferences

Despite loving each other enough to tie the knot, the bride and groom have different tastes, which is part of their attraction (to each other). Let the guests get to know the bride and goorm better (when you are not just the bride and groom) by giving them a glimpse of your tastes. Set up his and hers stations with your favorite beverages or cocktails, favorite snacks and decorate them with your favorite colours and accessories.

Farmers Market Style

Eliminate assigned seating and the headaches of matching guests according to who they like or are currently speaking/not speaking to. Have different stalls with fresh produce, craft beverages, and food options such as crepes, oyster bar and other traditional farmer’s market fair. The guests will have fun as they go from stall to stall, collecting their chosen food and beverages.  Have a communal section with seating where the guests can mingle and come and go as they top-up their plates and glasses.

Circle the wagons

If you don’t want the hassle factor or have the budget to put together a farmers market then arrange for a few food trucks to serve the guests.  Food trucks have come a long way since the greasy rat-traps, flipping processed-cheap-no-name-or-species ‘meat’, for the local factory workers. They are smart, shiny and the fair is innovative and fresh.
