There are so many elements in planning a wedding but if one stands out as a top priority, it’s your wedding food menu.
While we’re all prone to a little wedding DIY, it pays to get the professionals to handle the catering. It’s much easier to factor in food allergies and dietary requirements when you hand it over to the people who have the right skills and expertise in this field.
Our catering team here at the Estate understand the importance of a great wedding food menu, which is why we tweak our menu right down to the finest details. We know that the food served at your wedding will become one of the most memorable parts of the day. We see, first-hand, the joy that good food brings to the bride, groom and their guests.
If you’re not convinced that you need to focus too much attention on your wedding food menu, here are five reasons why we think you need to change your tune. And we can make it easy for you.
You’ll need the sustenance
It’s common for the bride or groom to be so immersed in getting ready for the wedding that they completely forget to eat. Food may be the last thing on your mind as your body is fuelled by sheer excitement.
But once you’ve said your “I dos” and the adrenaline levels calm down, you’ll start to feel pangs of hunger almost immediately.
Knowing how quickly ‘hungry’ can become ‘hangry’, it’s extremely important to provide canapes to tide both you and your guests over until it’s time for the wedding dinner. It’s a long day and your guests will appreciate being able to graze while they mix and mingle before the reception.
hangry – adjective = bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger
We put just as much of an emphasis on quality in the canapes as we do in the main meal.
Once your ceremony has concluded, our staff will be on hand to serve delicious, fresh canapes alongside champagne or grape juice. With every tasty morsel, you’ll feel more refreshed and energised to enjoy the rest of the celebrations.
People will talk about the wedding food menu
So give them something good to talk about.
Of course, you want every aspect of your wedding to be perfect – who doesn’t?
Therefore there is no compromise on quality when it comes to your wedding food menu. If the food is subpar, there’s no doubt you’ll hear the murmurings among your guests.
This is not something you want to worry yourself with on your wedding day.
Having hosted our fair share of weddings, we are experts in keeping everyone happy.
We create our menus from seasonal produce and we can tailor each meal to suit all kinds of requirements. Your guests will have only good things to say about the food here.
There’s something symbolic about sharing a meal
A wedding reception is a symbol of hospitality to your guests. The idea of the wedding reception originated to provide the bride and groom with an opportunity to share a meal with their community for the first time.
Sharing a meal has long been considered a sacred act. It’s not just about quashing hunger, sharing a meal also offers a chance to connect with others over the one thing we all have in common: food.
Our reception area comes to life when it fills with wedding guests ready to enjoy a meal. The clinging of cutlery and the smiles on their faces show that our food has injected even more joy into an already momentous occasion.
Good food leaves a lasting impression
Your wedding food menu will be one of the most talked-about elements of your wedding day. Your guests may forget the odd detail here and there (even the ones you painstakingly fretted over) but they won’t forget the food they had.
The food at your wedding has the potential to enhance the entire wedding experience. For this reason alone, you really want to ensure you’ve got a delicious wedding food menu planned for the day.
