We all know just how stressful and time-consuming it is to plan a wedding (hint: very, very stressful and even more time-stealing). Think about it: there are so many things that you have to consider and think about and try and taste and decide on and, like most brides, you'll deffo start to wondering where you should even begin.
For some, it choosing the perfect Old Farm Barn, for other's it's the dress. Whatever the case for you, though, you need to make sure that you can keep on top of it all because that, Bridal Babe, is how you'll end up with the day of your dreams.
However, there are some of parts of your big day that you probably won’t think about immediately but are oh-so-important -- and your food is one of them. Here's the bottom line: without yummy, scrummy, tastier-than-lobster, uber-good food, your guests are going to enjoy the day that little bit less... and so will you. That's because the food you serve is always one of the most memorable parts of getting hitched.
And in that spirit, let’s look at what you can do to ensure that you get it just right.
Finding Good Caterers
One of the most important things of all is finding the best caterers around, not just good. The best. This is your wedding day, honey, and you deserve food that is going to make taste buds freak. Sure, that is a challenge because, while you might have received a million tips on which venue to choose, which bridal stores to visit and which photographers to go with, not many people share tips when it comes to catering.
The truth is, you need to shop around, which might sound sucky, but it's actually awesome. Why? 'Cos you get to try a hundred different menus from a dozen different caterers in your area -- how good does that sound? That's not a chore,, that's a dream although you don’t want to make the mistake of spending too long trying to do this. Look at some top wedding catering tips, and you should find you can get a hold of a decent catering company in no time at all.
It is hugely important too that you bear everyone in mind because if anyone feels left out regarding the food, well, it's going to be a huge oversight that could mar your day in some small or big way.
To stop this happening, remember that each of your guests might have some sort of dietary needs, and that you have to provide for all of them if you are to keep everyone happy. The best way to do that is to have people list any needs they have on their RSVP, as that will ensure that they are going to be able to have the food they need to have on the day itself. This is not something that you want to overlook if you can help it.
For the big meal itself, you might just offer the one meal, but later on in the night there will generally be many options available to your guests, and that is exactly how it should be. People will often need further food later on, after all, and when this happens you need to make sure that you are going to offer as much in the way of variety as you possibly can. That will ensure that everyone is suitably impressed about the day as a whole, and that they are full too.
