Wedding Reception Food


Visitors: 210

Along with the dress the rings and the rings and the venue, the wedding reception food is one of the most crucial parts of any wedding.

Deciding on wedding reception food can hard work as well as costly. There are many things that need to be considered such as dietary requirements of your guests as well as checking for any allergies to certain foods as this could be fatal for some people.

When sending out your wedding invitations it is always a good idea to ask the guests to include any allergy or dietary requirements in their reply, this way you will know well in advance and can deal with it accordingly.

If you have decided to use caterers for you wedding reception food be sure to ask friends and family if they can recommend anyone or ask your local florist or wedding planner if they can give you details of people they have used before and recommend.

Wedding Reception food can be as expensive or cheap as you want, after paying out for the dress, the rings and all the other wedding accessories if you have overstretched your budget and need to cut costs on the food then there are many ways to dress up what you may have thought wasn't suitable at a wedding and actually make cheaper things look very appropriate.

You could also make the wedding reception food yourself, although this will put more strain on you and lets face it you are meant to be pampered on your wedding day not spend it in the kitchen! Therefore ask a friend or family member if they can help you out but make sure they can handle the job to avoid unwanted stress.

If you are within your budget and are now looking around for a caterer make sure you meet with them in person to go over exactly what you require and clear up any questions you might have.

Most caterers allow you to taste the wedding reception food before the day and this I strongly recommend. Be aware that some caterers will charge a small fee for this service.

It is also wise to take someone with you when testing the food to get another persons honest opinion. Always get more than one quote for your wedding reception food, if something seems really cheap and to good to be true then it probably is. Make sure that the food is being prepared fresh with fresh vegetables as this can affect the overall taste.

In the unlikely event that you will have to cancel the wedding reception food make sure you have read and understood any cancellation policies the caterer may have.

Your wedding day is the one day when you can have what ever you want, be bold and try new ideas, sample food you may not have considered before to get a broad idea of what is available.
