04 Nov Choosing Your Wedding Menu: Our Tips
At Pesto Food, we love catering for all sorts of weddings. And, with our menus tailored to each one, we know all about what makes the perfect wedding food. However, we also know how difficult it can be to choose the food you serve at your wedding! If you’re struggling, we’ve put together some of our top tips for choosing your perfect menu!
What do you actually want on your wedding menu?
Firstly, the most important thing to think about is what YOU want to serve at your wedding. What are your favourite foods? Have you tried anything at another wedding that you loved? There’s no point designing an extensive menu if it’s not really what you want to eat. Yes, it’s true that you should take any allergies or dietary restrictions into account, but it is your big day and nobody else’s. Do what makes you happy and only serve food that you love!
Don’t just think of the main course
Food is such an important part of any celebration. So, when it comes to planning your wedding menu, don’t just think about the main meal. There are plenty of other elements you could consider to make your day extra special! What about serving canapes to guests before the meal begins? What about your dessert? Apparently, around 28% of wedding receptions have a dessert station, but there are so many different options available! You could even think about edible wedding favours or anything else that will make the day particularly memorable for you and your guests.
Presentation is key
Once you’ve decided on the delicious dishes that you want to be served for your wedding menu, the next step is to think about the presentation. Most good caterers will be able to do this for you and make sure the food looks beautiful. Great presentation can go that extra mile to make the meal feel extra special, so don’t forget about it!
Don’t hold back when choosing your wedding menu!
Your wedding day will probably be one of the most important, special days of your life! So why would you hold back on your menu? You should make it as rich and luxurious as you want. After all, this is a menu that you will only eat once! Make the most of it and serve the most extravagant menu you desire. Or, go simple if it’s what you want.
Think about where your wedding menu comes from
Most caterers, like us at Pesto, love creating menus that are centred around fresh local produce that is in season. Why not create a menu that makes the most of the delicious ingredients that are in season around the time of your wedding? Using such fresh produce will make the dishes you serve even tastier. Plus, it’s better for the environment, as your wedding food won’t have to travel as far to reach your plates.
Choosing your wedding menu can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. An experienced caterer like us at Pesto Food will take all of your worries away. We are passionate about creating individual menus and making sure everything goes off without a hitch on your big day. To get in touch with us about creating your menu, contact us today!
