Using Food to Project Your Personality on Your Wedding Day
A new breed of caterers and venues has emerged over the past decade, bringing with it more flexibility than ever before, and an almost “anything goes’ approach towards bespoking your big day. Food is a powerful element here and the possibilities for branding your wedding day with your own personality using food are just endless.
Gone are the days of boring, luke warm chicken or fish based menus served to guests sitting formally at tables. Many couples are now opting for a more informal and relaxed dining experience, opting for a buffet or barbecued wedding breakfast plus food stations which can be present throughout the day. This Provides non-stop nibbles to keep guests fed, ensures food is hot at the point of consumption and can introduce a quirky talking point and fun element to the day.
Here we have brought together just a few ideas for adding a unique foodie twist to your big day.
Communicate your love for travelling, your home town or other place that is special and significant to you by designing your menu around local cuisine. Mini tacos, colourful sushi stations or a Texan style barbecue, for example.
Dress for success
Bring your favourite comfort foods to your big day using beautiful serving platters and decorations to present an inviting and memorable 5-star meal. Whether its burgers, pizza, milkshakes, ice cream, popcorn or donuts - anything is possible with help from a great caterer.
Miniaturise key elements of a menu to create nibbles that can be served up all day long, or incorporate a special ‘late night snack’ to keep your party fuelled into the wee small hours (if your venue is amenable.)
Mash the toast
Rethink your toast and bring some more unique style to your wedding day - especially if the traditional champagne just isn’t you. How about serving shot glasses of your favourite liquor, a signature cocktail, or a beer station? Non-alcoholic options might be a fizzy drink that takes you back to your youth, or a fruity Shirly Temple punch that will make everyone (including any children at your party) smile.
