6 Tips For Choosing Your Wedding Menu

Choosing your perfect wedding menu can be a challenge. However, if you wish to find the perfect menu for you, we offer a dinner date evening to try our extensive menu options. Although this is at an additional cost, this is the perfect way to taste test what we have on offer to create your perfect menu for your special day. Here, we’re looking into what you should take into account when choosing the food for your big day.

Seasonal

When creating your wedding menu, the first thing you need to think about is in which season you’re planning to tie the knot. In addition to this, if you have a theme for your wedding that links to the season, for example, a festive theme in winter, you will want to incorporate this through the menu too. For this reason, when you meet the professional wedding managers, you should inform them about your theme and how you want to intertwine it into the menus provided. They may be able to provide guidance and advice as to which meals may suit best.

Dietary Requirements

A very important factor that you must consider when choosing your wedding menu is the dietary requirements of your guests. Whether they are vegetarian or allergic to nuts, it is important that you find out each individual’s needs before you decide on your menu. By providing a number of options on the menu, you can rest assured that all of your guests will have something that they can eat. When you come to choose a wedding menu, you’ll have a number of options from which you can pick one meat, one fish and one vegetarian or vegan option for your starter and main to fit with specific dietary requirements, as well as two dessert options so your guests can choose which works best for them.

Try Before You Buy

One of the most enjoyable parts of choosing your wedding menu is sampling the food for yourself, at which point you can choose the flavours that you like the most. By tasting a variety of foods at one of our dinner date evenings, you can be sure that your menu will have a combination of flavours that cater to the pallet of you and your significant other. In addition to this, it will provide a delicious experience for your guests. It is important to have a taster session for every course at your wedding, so you have one less thing to think about on the big day.

Compromise

Not everyone likes everything, and so choosing a menu that you, your significant other and your guests will like may seem like a completely impossible task. For this reason, being able to compromise not only with your partner but on what your guests may prefer, can ensure that the big day goes off without a hitch.

Keep It Simple

By keeping the menu classic with some timeless staples, you can ensure that you and your guests will like a majority of the food that is featured on it. From those who are seasoned wedding-goers to those who may be attending their first ever wedding, being able to cater to all of them (within reason, of course) can be as easy as keeping things simple. Roasts, ice cream desserts and similar all tend to be hits at weddings, so it’s certainly worth considering.

Set A Budget

It is crucial to set a budget before starting the process of planning your perfect wedding menu as this will ensure that you don’t spend too much money on the catering and will have enough money left for other elements of the wedding. By setting a budget from the start, your chosen caterer can provide you with options that are within the budget that suits you. As part of the package for your special day we have canapes, a three-course meal and handmade petit fours included within the price, however, you have an option to upgrade your package should you require, leaving the choice completely up to you.

There you have it, our top 6 tips to creating your ideal wedding menu. We hope that this guide serves as a valuable resource when you begin to plan your big day. Feel free to get in touch with a member of our team for more information about your package, today.
