Events / 6 Unique Ways To Serve Wedding Reception Food by walexydon(m): 5:04pm On Oct 05
Want to help your clients create a memorable wedding reception? Or are you a bride looking for ways to minimize cost without losing that touch of creativity on your wedding day?

Here are seven different food styles that will make your wedding day memorable:

1. BREAKFAST BRUNCH

For the couple planning on having a low-key ceremony, this wonderful wedding reception food style allows a 9:00 or 10:00 a.m. wedding ceremony.

Wedding Reception Food Ideas:

Bagels and croissants with a selection of marmalades and jams
Fresh fruits
Pancakes or waffles
Mimosas and Chapman are natural beverage selections.

Benefits: this is an inexpensive feast and gives the gathering an air of intimacy. Since it’s an early event, it gives the bride and groom plenty of time to leave for their honeymoon.

Remember: this wedding reception food style eliminates dancing since it’s an early celebration. Also, it might be too early for late-sleeping guests to attend.

2. LUNCHEON

Quality and simplicity in its most elegant form are words that describe this wedding food reception style. This reception option provides more substantial cuisine than the breakfast brunch. This lunchtime gathering usually takes place between 12 noon and 2 pm.

Wedding Reception Food Ideas:

Variety of salads
Pasta dishes
Cold salmon and chicken
Light drinks and iced zobo, zobo lemonade or lemonade.

Benefits: a luncheon is still less expensive when compared to a dinner reception. Plus, it makes for a great outdoor reception.

Remember: not too many guests will want to dance at a lunchtime event.

3. AFTERNOON TEA

This wedding reception food idea isn’t just delightful, but also affordable. It is held between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. (usually doesn’t start after 3:30 p.m). An afternoon tea reception is oh-so-perfect for unwavering and die-hard romantics who like to do things differently from the norm.

Wedding Reception Food Ideas:

Finger sandwiches with crusts removed (dainties)
Fresh fruit
Scones and cream
Wedding cake (of course!)
Cupcakes (optional)
Tea and champagne punch
Benefits: an afternoon tea event allows for creativity. This wedding reception idea works for couples with a large guest list but a small budget.

Remember: while this is a delightful event, this wedding reception doesn’t provide a full meal for guests and because it is usually a shorter reception, dancing is unlikely.

4. DESSERT-ONLY

This wedding reception food style is perfect for the late-night wedding couple. The reception starts sometime between 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Wedding Reception Food Ideas:

Wedding Cake
An extensive assortment of rich desserts
Chocolate fountain with accompanying fruits
Candy buffet
Champagne and coffee
An espresso bar
Benefit: this style is inexpensive but sophisticated.

Remember: This party doesn't provide a real meal for guests and because of the sweet menu, there are no provisions for diabetics.

5. DINNER: BUFFET

For the casual couple who prefer a fun and relaxed reception, having wedding guests serve themselves from an array of food is a great wedding reception food style.

Wedding Reception Food Ideas:

A variety of dishes that allow guests to pick and choose to create a great meal, attractively set out on long tables.
Both meat and vegetarian entrees
Plenty of side dishes; a selection of vegetables and salads
Benefit: the buffet offers something for everyone.

Remember: as widely believed, a buffet isn’t cheaper than a sit-down meal. Also, this isn’t the most elegant option when you consider the time guests could spend waiting in line for food.

6. DINNER: SIT-DOWN

This is the most popular wedding reception food style in Nigeria. Here, waiters serve the wedding guests food.

Wedding Reception Food Ideas:

One or two appetizers (optional), followed by jollof rice, fried rice, ofada rice, and other native Nigerian cuisines.

Benefits:

This is an elegant option since everyone eats almost at the same time.
Since people tend to finish their meals more quickly, an event like this allows for more time on the dance floor and a great party.
Remember: the party isn’t cheap and the guests will have limited food options.

Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you...

Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep...

First kisses...

Making new friends and spending time with the old ones...

Singing in the bathroom...

Sweet dreams...

Holding hands with someone you care about...

Watching a sunset...

Taking long, hot showers...

Knowing that somebody misses you...

keep it comin grin grin
