Wedding Food Menu Planning Tips that are Pocket-friendly
The catering bill is a major chunk of your wedding expenses. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here, we share, some clever tips on how you can cut down the catering costs for your big day, without compromising on the quality of food, you serve your guests.
- Cut Back the Number of Courses/Cuisines on the Menu!
You can serve multiple dishes in each course, but definitely cut back on the number of courses served. For instance, by serving guests with several wholesome appetizers instead of small bites, you can avoid spending more on the main courses. Alternatively, you can skip soups and salads, and get down directly to the mains. Instead of serving multiple cuisines – North Indian, South Indian, Gujarati, Chinese, and Continental – focus on just one cuisine. Serve a delicious menu having plenty of choices and several tasty dishes.
- You don’t have to go overboard with the Desserts
Yes, you may have a sweet tooth and a meal for you may feel incomplete with a sweet ending. But, that doesn’t mean you have to serve dozens of desserts from across the world. Again, remember that quality always triumphs over quantity.
Your guests will be pretty full by the time they finish their mains. So, they probably won’t have the tummy space to try out all the desserts you serve.
Just serve a couple of bite-sized desserts if you want to cut down costs as well as avoid food wastage. Alternatively, you can have a dessert counter, where guests get to choose what they want, without wasting anything.
