Your wedding is the most important day of your life and it is filled with stresses, excitement and lots of different preparations. One of the biggest costs you will have in the day of your wedding is the food.

Food can cost a massive amount if you decide on crockery hire and having a 3 course meal for the wedding breakfast. However if you are on a budget or simply want to make things easier for everyone there are ways you can take the stress out of Wedding food.

Reduce the options

If you are going to make your own food for the wedding you want to make sure that you don’t offer 20 different meal options for people to pick at during the day. This Will just make things very expensive and very stressful when it doesn’t need to be. To make things easier, offer 2 meat options and then a vegetarian option if you have any vegetarians coming to your wedding. This will give people an option between a safe meat like chicken and a more risky option like lamb.

If you want to make learning food and stress free as possible, the easiest thing you can possibly do is hold a buffet instead of a full meal. This will mean that you simply have to provide a ton of options and everyone can go and serve themselves when they are ready. You could go for something like pizza, sandwiches, mini pies, chips, chicken skewers, cheese, crackers and lots more. You can buy most of the food you need online and simply wrap it up ready for the day.

Make it pot luck

If you are familiar with pot luck dinners at events then you will already know what we are talking about. If not, pot luck is about asking all of your guests to contribute one dish to the feast. It means that you will have a whole host of snacks, meals and desserts on the wedding table which everyone can tuck into. It is a great way to make everyone feel involved and it guarantees that everyone will be able to eat something they like.
