“When it comes to your wedding reception there are some pretty major decisions that have to be made, and this includes what you are going to serve for food. There are lots of different types of food that you can have at your wedding, and it is pretty much entirely up to you what you decide to have, just make sure of a few things first.
Casual or Formal?
When you are trying to decide on your wedding reception food, there are a few things in particular that you are going to need to take into consideration. One of the first things that you are going to want to figure out when trying to decide on wedding reception food is whether your wedding itself is going to be casual or formal.
This is going to have one of the most major influences in regards to the type of wedding reception food that you can serve. If your wedding is going to be formal, people are going to expect a more formal dinner, whereas if it is just a casual wedding, for instance on a beach or outdoors somewhere, you can probably just stick to a luncheon or otherwise casual food.
Preferences and Allergies
Also when choosing your wedding reception food you are going to need to take into account the fact of whether anyone coming to the wedding has food preferences or allergies. Obviously you are going to want to try and cater the wedding so that everybody will be able to eat, so if you don’t know everyone that well who is coming, for instance if you are having a larger family wedding, then you are going to want to ask people.
Not only are you going to want to ask around for that, but when you are trying to choose wedding reception food you are also going to want to just ask around to your friends and close family members to get ideas. As the bride and groom you guys already have enough on your plate so whenever you can get help about something to do with the wedding, you really should take it.
Choosing food can definitely be a bit overwhelming but it is your wedding and the most important thing is that you are happy. As long as you choose a good meal that is going to offer something to everybody, even if they have particular food preferences, then you will be good to go.”
