The Art of Culinary Delight: Making Food the Highlight of Your Wedding



Catering for weding

When it comes to weddings, people often reminisce about the food served on that special day. While not everyone may agree, it underscores the significance of food in creating lasting memories. If you, like me, appreciate good cuisine, then prioritizing food at your wedding becomes imperative. Let's explore how you can elevate your wedding menu to create an unforgettable dining experience.

Selecting the Perfect Caterer: Price and quality are crucial factors when choosing a wedding caterer. In our case, we sought exceptional food, a diverse selection, and the satisfaction of our guests. After researching different meal styles and considering their pros and cons, we settled on a BBQ buffet with gourmet sides. Don't be misled by preconceived notions; our menu featured mouthwatering options like bacon-wrapped scallops, salmon, and steak, all prepared to perfection.

Embracing Tradition and Personal Preferences: For my family, the quintessential kiwi BBQ is at the heart of all our gatherings and celebrations. From a full cooked birthday breakfast to Sunday roasts and fresh fish caught off the boat, the BBQ has always been the centerpiece. When we were presented with the option of a BBQ buffet for our wedding, it instantly resonated with us. This choice proved advantageous, as a buffet is more cost-effective than a sit-down meal, accommodates various dietary requirements, and allows guests to enjoy their preferred portions.

Creative Ways to Optimize Your Wedding Menu:

  1. Less Can Be More: Reduce the number of courses in your menu to minimize costs without compromising on quality. Remember, it's about creating a satisfying dining experience, not overwhelming guests with excessive food.

  2. Catering for Children: Inquire about special pricing for kids, as they often consume less than adults. Adjusting the per-person cost accordingly can result in significant savings.

  3. Potluck Dinner: Encourage guests to contribute by organizing a potluck dinner. This not only reduces catering expenses but also adds a personal touch to the event. Coordinate dish choices to ensure a balanced spread and consider it as an alternative to traditional wedding gifts.

  4. Think Outside the Box: Explore unconventional options such as having a restaurant cater the food or ordering takeaways that align with your wedding theme. For instance, a Mexicana-themed wedding could feature delectable Mexican cuisine from a local eatery.

  5. Mobile Kitchens: Food trucks are gaining popularity and can bring a unique element to your wedding. However, it's essential to assess their food throughput rate to avoid long waiting times.

  6. Self-Catering: While self-catering requires careful consideration, it can be a rewarding experience. You can choose to prepare certain parts of the meal, such as appetizers, sides, or desserts, while outsourcing the rest to professional caterers. This hybrid approach helps reduce costs while managing the workload.

  7. Timing Matters: Consider hosting a brunch or lunch wedding, as these meals tend to be lighter and more budget-friendly. Additionally, you may save on bar expenses by offering daytime-appropriate beverages.


Ultimately, the decision regarding your wedding menu is a deeply personal one. Embrace your creativity, think outside the box, and remember that the cost of food doesn't have to dictate its quality. By prioritizing the culinary aspect of your wedding, you can create a remarkable experience for both you and your guests. Lastly, don't forget to seek out experienced and flexible caterers who will make your vision a reality.
