3 More Tips for Planning Your Wedding Menu
In the first part of this article, we’ve already shared some tips for planning a perfect wedding menu. If you’ve followed it, maybe you’ve already booked your halal food catering, finalized your guest list, and have even selected a custom menu for your wedding.
But wait! We’re not done yet! Here are some more tips and ideas for planning a truly unforgettable wedding menu.
1. Choose a meal style
What meal style you should choose depends on a number of factors, such as, your theme and budget. If you prefer a formal style wedding, go for sit-down meals. On the other hand, buffet catering is great for any casual or semi-formal wedding events. Each type has its pros and cons. In the end, it’s about your individual preferences. Choose a meal style that suits your event type.
2. Consider the timeframe
It is also important to decide when to serve what. Let’s say, you’ve planned to serve five different appetizers before main meal. In that case, it would be a good idea to plan the sequence in which they’ll be served. Plus, consider the time gap of serving between the items. You should also have a rough idea of how long it could take to serve a plated dinner. If you are planning a cocktail hour, consider whether you want to schedule it before or after the dinner.
3. Include seasonal food
One common thing people make when selecting food items for a wedding is not considering the festive. For instance, if you may have planned to serve sprouting broccoli salad but if it is not available – you can go for simple tomato salad, instead. Always try to take advantage of the fresh, seasonal foods. If you are not sure what seasonal foods to include, ask your halal catering company for help.
