If you’re planning a wedding soon, you’re likely trying to stay within a certain budget while ensuring that your friends and family have a great time. The meal at the reception is when most wedding guests socialize and the food can serve as yet another way your relatives and loved ones will enjoy themselves. Your catering options should reflect you and your spouse’s style and solidify the theme of your special day. Here are a few wedding catering ideas you may want to consider.
A hog roast is a common celebratory meal in the UK, but you can make the roast especially festive by offering a variety of sauces and salads that go great with the roasted pig. This is a cost-effective way to enjoy a hearty meal for your reception since a hog roast is ideal for large groups. Consider booking a hog roast for your wedding that comes specialist menu options and uniformed chefs.
If your guests are fans of Game of Thrones, you can have a medieval-style banquet complete with meats like goose and pheasant, root vegetables, large loaves of bread, and plenty of wine. A fruit tart or custard would also be fitting for this type of feast as well. You can serve the dessert to your guests in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. You and your spouse will feel like royalty while you enjoy a meal that celebrates your favourite period in history.
Hire a few mobile oven-brick pizza caterers so your guests can enjoy a pizza with all their favourite toppings. Pizza is a delicious and affordable way to feed your family and friends and your loved ones will enjoy these savoury pies even more when they’re able to add all the ingredients they like. You can also provide a few crust options for guests who are gluten-intolerant or trying to watch their carbs.
Whether you choose to have a traditional wedding cake or not, you can also offer a buffet of sweet treats for your wedding guests to enjoy. You can offer sophisticated sweets like French pastries and gourmet coffees, or make the dessert bar colourful and fun by filling the table with decorative dishes of your favourite childhood candies.
These are just a few of the ways you can make your wedding reception meal one to remember. Celebrating this milestone in your life will be even more memorable when you include foods and desserts that speak to who you are as a couple.
