Catering for your guests is one aspect of your wedding that can be totally unique and imaginative. It all depends on the time of year, the amount of people you need to feed, the atmosphere and theme and of course, your budget.
If you prefer a more informal meal, then why not offer a buffet? This has always been a crowd pleaser and it allows people to pick from a wider variety of foods and it also works out as less expensive. A buffet allows you to cater for all kinds of tastes to ensure that you can be confident you are catering for everyone attending your wedding, including those who may have any food allergies.
A more rustic way to feed the guests at your wedding is to have a BBQ or a hog roast. It’s an ever popular way to cater at weddings and it can be served with a variety of different sides such as salads, pasta, potatoes and sauces and is enjoyed be everyone. It’s a great way of making your reception unique and memorable.
Decorations at the venue are becoming more important for weddings. They set the scene and the mood and it allows you to express your personality to your guests with quirky and personal decorations.
Incorporate copper roses and hydrangeas into every aspect such as tableware, chair covers, wedding favours and centrepieces. Of course, you are not limited to using flowers, use pine cones and shaped vines and twigs with sheaves of wheat or lavender. Why not add a bit of drama and glamour with gold paint or glitter?
Winter weddings look fabulous with the use of crisp whites and silvers but they can also benefit from a splash of colour or texture. Willow is a popular choice for winter weddings and is a great way to add a vintage feel to the decoration. Another way of creating a magical scene at your wedding is with the use of crystals.
Strings of crystals hanging from centrepieces gives a classic and elegant look whilst injecting style to your table decorations. A stunning display of a white twig tree with crystals, lights and candles in the centre of the tables will create impact for your guests to enjoy. This can also be mirrored with the use of large white floral displays or elaborate candelabras featuring fairy lights.
If you are hosting a Christmas wedding, why not use deep reds and golds with the use of baubles and berries to add a little Christmas spirit to your big day? A great idea is to have a large glass bowl filled with baubles and fairy lights as a centrepiece on the tables of your venue.
