Everyone looks forward to the meal at a wedding. Guests may have had a long day preparing for and travelling to witness your celebration, and the newlyweds with their families will welcome the chance to get to know one another as they eat a sumptuous wedding banquet together.
Planning what food to serve at your wedding takes time and consideration. At Bijou we invite our wedding planning couples for a food tasting roughly three months before their day. Sampling a 3-course tasting platter featuring five miniature versions of the most popular menu choices, they’re able to sample their wedding food in the surroundings of their wedding venue and get a great impression of the quality and presentation of the food. Of course, you may want to have this experience earlier on in your planning but we find it is a much more enjoyable part of the process if done slightly later, once some of the less exciting things have been sorted and are in place.
Your venue or caterer will of course advise you on what is available given the format of your day. Considerations that will not necessarily be highlighted are listed below:
Don’t forget to mention dietary requirements on your wedding invitations.
Choose three courses that you both agree on.
Ask your venue if they will print table menus for you, or if you need to arrange these separately.
