Who runs the world? Food! Sorry girls, while you might be running the world, but you can’t do that without food. The obsession and everyone’s obvious love for food these days has turned almost everyone into a food-eating monger. However, this obsession turns into craze when you are about to get married and all you can think of is the menu and how are you going to pull off some amazing food that makes everybody ask you about the caterer. It is safe to say and assume that couples have raised the stakes and the bar when it comes to their wedding menu, what they want and where will they take it from. There is no second say in the situation that there are a lot of options available out there to choose from, whether you desire an ultimate five-course dinner, or you want a global cuisine in some cultural way. With the multiple options and choices, there is always a challenge to handpick the one or multiple dishes and places to make your wedding menu palatable and exactly the way you wanted. So, how do you choose what makes it onto your plate and that of the guests? Here you go. Read the mentioned carefully and follow these points, if you want to have a fantastic wedding feast.
What Food Do You Like?
This is simple! Do you find it hard to order at a restaurant with diverse choices in the menu or a tricky restaurant leaves you boggled? If this is your situation, then planning your wedding menu is going to be a hard nut to crack. Don’t get yourself confused between dozens and dozens of choices. The easiest way to pick a few things from the million that are running in your head is to start with something that you both love. You both need to decide on things together and narrow down the dishes that suit you both. Your first meal together must be something you both enjoy. Let’s suppose, you are just deciding on one main course from Gourmet Platters Catering Melbourne, then definitely opt for a dish that you both are a crazy fan of. If you have multiple dishes in one course, you can have a bit more flexibility in terms of taste and choices.
Will Your Guests Like It?
We understand how necessary it is for you to like your own wedding food and putting yourself and your choices first, but it isn’t always going to work. When you are spending a lot of money feeding your guests, you must choose dishes that most of them will like. By choosing the menu and dishes that the majority of your guests will prefer, you will be spending the money more wisely. The best way here is to go for the menu items and cuisine that is the most popular in your part of the country. It is always easy to go with the flow for such choices. However, it isn’t necessary that you should just choose run-of-the-mill menu, but try adding in some unique dishes under your budget too.
Consider Dietary Needs & Allergies:
It is extremely important that you create a menu which is diverse and caters to multiple choices. It would be beneficial for you, if you know beforehand about the guests that might have any dietary restrictions or allergies. You can ask around, if it isn’t possible for you, otherwise you might ask the caterer to offer some options that can be used when an alternative for the guests. Create the diversity in terms of menu as well; vegetables, meat, and dessert. You wouldn’t want to just hog on your choice and favourites. Do consider about your guests as well. The easiest method is to include a note in the invitation to contact you for any special dietary requirements.
As with all the other arrangements for your wedding, planning and deciding a menu is hectic but it isn’t impossible. Top of all, food and everything related is always fun. Just be aware of your budget, choices and everything else. If you keep these all in check, we don’t see how you cannot slay your wedding menu.
