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.
- Go for a Simple Wedding Cake
Did you know that wedding cakes can cost a bomb? Unless you have always dreamt of a massive 10-tier wedding cake, you can cut down costs here. We suggest that you work with a wedding cake decorator in your town or locality and get them to serve a cake large enough for all guests to have a slice of. It can be a simple 2 or 3-tier design. For instance, if you’re looking to serve 200 guests, then a 3-5 kg cake will be sufficient. Alternatively, you can also serve cupcakes as they are easy to serve and budget-friendly.
- Limit the Booze
Most of your guests (especially the younger crowd) look forward to the wedding bar. But, that doesn’t mean you have to serve a full bar. Instead, limit it to just the favorites, and you can keep most of your guests happy.
What to serve: One type of wine or any other hard liquor. One or two varieties of beers, along with a couple of soft drinks. Make sure to include some non-alcoholic juices or beverages for kids and teetotallers.
Decide your Budget and Share it with your Caterers
Today, most caterers are flexible and accommodating. So, start by deciding your catering budget. For this, you need to have a clear idea of the number of guests who will be attending the event, the events you are hosting, and the meals you plan to serve. Once you have a number in mind, work with your caterer to create a menu that fits the costs.
