When choosing wedding catering options for your special day, you can make things fun by opting for a few more interesting features than the standard wedding food usually includes. Any beautifully traditional wedding can be made even more unforgettable by adding unique catering options that will have all your guests remembering the day fondly for years to come. Here are some of the popular catering options for weddings.
One of the most aesthetically appealing and luxurious ways to enjoy a delicious treat is to dip it in a flowing fountain. Fountains of cheese or chocolate are instantly visually impressive, and they are something that will be enjoyed throughout the party. There are a lot of various directions you can take with a fountain. Fruits, cookies, marshmallows, and cake are all favorites for chocolate fountains, whereas vegetables, meats, and bread are great for cheese fountains. All of these items can be arranged in a variety of displays, which will look simply incredible next to the already impressive fountain
For larger events, many times catering companies offer a buffet style meal. This works well when the number of guests is a little uncertain. You may have some idea of how many are going to be there, but not down to the specific number. Here guests go down a line of tables and make their choices from some of the things you have chosen to have out. Here each guest gets what they want and they can choose to eat more or less than you may have expected.
In some cases, especially more formal events, a catering company may have a set menu with a soup/salad, appetizer and entree. For weddings, the cake is typically the desert, however other desserts can be ordered as well. Each person receives the same meal and is served each part of it at the same time as all of the other guests. While this is typically more expensive that the above options, it does make it a little easier to have everyone getting the same thing.
Some wedding invitations allow guests to choose which meal they would like to have. There may be two main choices and a vegetarian choice to try and make sure that all guests are getting what they want. In this case, it is important to get the catering company the exact number of guests and the specific meal numbers so that they can prepare. Many times, they also prepare extra of both just in case some type of issue arrives.
Now matter what type of event you are having, it is important to let the catering company know how many guests you expect to attend. You don’t want to pay for more food than you need and you really don’t want to run out of food. You can meet with a representative of the company and talk to them about how much it will cost as well as how to determine how much food to arrange for.
