Serving delicious food is very important for a Virginia wedding – and it is actually one of the very fundamentals behind planning such an event.
What are some of the essential things to keep in mind about planning a wedding menu that’s both appreciated by guests and doesn’t break the bank? We have some tips for you – so read on if you want to find out more about this topic.
- Don’t skimp on the hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour. You may think your guests won’t need the food for one hour, especially given there’s a large meal ahead of them. However, serving alcohol without food is a really bad idea. Not only will it make guests feel restless, but it’s just one of those things that can turn everything into a disaster before the wedding even starts.
- Don’t serve stain-prone foods. You can serve pretty much any kind of food you may want to at your wedding. However, foods that stain can be quite annoying for guests, no matter how delicious they are. Can you imagine all of your bridesmaids trying to get through a lobster without staining their pretty pastel dresses? Probably not – and that’s exactly why you should be avoiding this kind of foods.
- Vegetarian options are (almost) a MUST. There’s a fairly big chance a lot of your guests will want to eat the vegetarian option(s) – so make this available to them. At the same time, know that it is not absolutely compulsory to include lactose-free and gluten-free options as well. If you can, do it, of course – but people won’t generally expect you to go out of your way for this.
- Yes, that late-night snack can make a huge difference. Regardless of whether you want to serve doughnuts or pizza, French fries or fancy looking soup shooters, late-night snacks are a popular trend for a very good reason: people just LOVE them. Include something like this in your wedding menu and we guarantee your guests will be delighted with the idea (not to mention they’ll get the energy to dance all night!).
