Dinner Food for Weddings

If you ask wedding experts about the top three things that people remember about the weddings they have attended, they will tell you that these are the bride’s wedding dress, the theme of the wedding, and the dinner food.  Most weddings are concluded by nightfall which means that dinner is the appropriate meal to be served.

You would want the dinner food to be nothing less than perfect and in order to achieve this, you should take note of these five things:

  1. Hire the best caterers.  Scout for reputable catering companies and do not hesitate to request a tasting arrangement so that you can give your feedback on the food as well as table setting way before the event.
  2. Relay all of your expectations about the food to be served as well as the setting of the dining area.  Presentation is just as important as the food that is to be served to the guests.  If you think there is a need to fine tune the presentation of the food, make sure that you tell the caterers.
  3. Stick to what your budget can accommodate.  There are set menus for every bracket so make sure you look them up in order that you would not go over and that you will have no unrealistic expectations.
  4. If you are on a budget, choose simple dishes that are chicken or beef based.  They can still be very tasty and filling without being too expensive.  Look up recipes that you would want to be prepared and confer with the catering company that you hired regarding this arrangement.  Make sure that you pick a catering company that can be flexible.
  5. Consider as many dishes as you want but it is still best to settle with one appetizer, one dessert, and 3 entrees.  This way, you can be sure that the guests are pleasantly filled but you will not have to spend an exorbitant amount of money.

The dinner food can be anything you want it to be as long as it is safe to eat and will be to your guest’s liking.  It is customary to give the guests a choice in the food to be served in case you are not sure if they will be comfortable with what you have in mind.

For instance, if you are serving both fish and meat courses, you can ask them to fill out a card together with the RSVP indicating which one they prefer.
