Something proving popular at weddings these days is a buffet-style presentation. Beautifully presented, decorated and a tasty variety of lots of dishes is a favourite for your guests. Especially if you have picky or specific dietary requirements from certain guests and children, you really can cater for all!

A vintage theme that seems to have become rather fashionable is casks or large glass jars with homemade lemonade and flavoured waters, as well as an inventive range of bars to surprise your guests. This can also be seen as a nice decor idea and some venues will allow you to make and bring it yourself, whilst other venues may not be so keen. You really can personalise the drink and the decoration for it to match the wedding theme.

Dessert Tables

Then there are the sweet candy bars and tables that everyone loves! It’s one of the details that weddings have really adopted within the last year and they keep everyone happy but also can make for a really pretty corner of decoration and colour. You could even take it as wedding favours idea and have personalised sweet bags made up and invite guests to take them home! You could even also use it as a meeting point, decoration idea or ‘children’s area.’ Whether it’s sweets, cakes or cupcakes, consider the idea as it is guaranteed to be a sweet hit”with all your friends and family.

Also, consider something savoury like a cheese and chutney table, who doesn’t like cheese, with crackers, chutney and some good old celery sticks?

There are so many options when it comes to catering! Remember to always ask your venue to clarify what you can/can’t take, and who and when the table or bar will be created: will you need to do it or a member of their staff? Remember, it’s the attention to detail that makes a difference and so don’t miss a trick by offering some of these delights at your wedding.
