When you are planning your wedding, one thing that you should be doing is thinking about the food. After all, your guests will love food treats during the day. And it’s one of the best things about the wedding. However, it’s hard to make your food unique from everyone else's big day. After all, venues often bring out the same dishes for weddings. And chicken soup gets old quick! Therefore, here are some food-tastic ways to make your wedding stand out from the rest!
Choose a sweetie cart for the reception
Everyone has a sweet tooth. In fact, you will find people can’t help but get a bag of pic ‘n’ mix when they head to the movies. Therefore, to make your wedding stand out, you should consider getting a sweetie card for the reception. That way, people can chew on the sweets while enjoying the evening reception. You can either hire a company who can bring a sweetie cart and serve it to guests. Or you could buy one which you can use for your big day. And a cart isn’t the only possibility; you could opt for a sweetie table which will have an array of treats for everyone to enjoy. You can easily buy some tubs off the net which you can fill with sweets and let people help themselves!
Opt for sweet canapes during the wedding photos
When wedding photos are being taken, it’s a lot of standing around for guests. In fact, if they are in limited pictures, it can often be quite boring. Therefore, you should get some canapes to be handed out for your guests to enjoy. And rather than traditional options such as quiches, you should go for sweet treats. For example, you could make some salted caramel filo pastries; check out my blog for the recipe. Or you might want to go for some white chocolate covered strawberries. It will thrill your guests and ensure they don’t get bored waiting around!
Go for a unique wedding cake
A lot of people go for a traditional fruit cake for their wedding. And although it’s a classic, it’s not that interesting. In fact, I don’t know many people who actually enjoy a fruit cake! Therefore, you should go for something more unique for your wedding. For example, you might want to go for chocolate cupcakes which will leave people drooling. Or you could go for something even more unique such as a wedding cheese cake. It’s great if you both love cheese; just don’t choose anything too stinky!
Get people to bring a dish for the evening buffet
It’s always a challenge to thrill everyone when it comes to the buffet in the evening. After all, cold sandwiches might be okay, but they are bound to be leftover at the end of the night. Therefore, to thrill everyone, you should get everyone to bring a dish for the evening buffet. Who knows what fabulous creations you might get for everyone to enjoy. It’s a lot more fun than cold snacks that no one will consume. And it will save you some money too!
And remember to opt for a fun cuisine for your wedding breakfast. Choose something which is memorable to you both and will thrill your guest’s taste buds.
