Wedding food has evolved significantly since the days of buffets with mountains of homemade quiches and cheese chunks on a stick. Now it is common for brides and grooms to lay out practically a feast for their guests. Whether it be for a sit down meal or a more informal affair, wedding food has become pretty epic! So, how do you go about filling your guests tummies with delicious food but without spending big bucks?
If you are getting married in a hotel or a traditional venue, you will most likely be offered an array of options to choose from via a menu from the on site caterers. However, these can be pretty expensive, and so you may want to arrange your wedding food yourself. Or, a good compromise on the cost front may be to order a set menu for your daytime guests and alternative catering for your guests in the evening.
If you are lucky enough to have organised a venue which gives you free reign when it comes to food, there are plenty of budget alternative dining options. Popular budget options at the moment for wedding food are, hog roasts and BBQs. Or, if you are arranging a DIY wedding, why not ask your guests to bring a plate of cuisine each? This works for both daytime and evening celebrations, with most people more than happy to have the chance to show off their culinary skills. Additionally, spend some money on some salads and breads, allowing you to feel full without spending a lot of money.
Of course, once your guests have filled themselves with food (and probably a few tipples), by the end of the day they will want to be escorted home in a timely and fashionable manner.
