How To Choose the right cuisine for your Wedding
Any wedding is considered incomplete without delicious food, and if you’re throwing a “Big Fat Indian Wedding” you should know that “Fat” stands for Food.
Food is one of the most judged factors that can make an Indian wedding super hit or an element for criticism. Choosing the right cuisine for your Indian wedding is one of the trickiest parts of the whole planning, but if you take the right steps, you can create the perfect menu. Here are some tips to help you:
1. Plan according to the season: You wouldn’t want to spoil your guests’ mood by offering them hot beverages during summers, or mojito or sodas during winters. Every drink, sweet, or even an appetizer, has its own serving season, which you should consider first before furthering any menu planning.
2. Checking food options from your venue: After you have booked your venue, you might want to check what food options they have to offer, in case they might lessen your burden for searching for special items. Venues also have access to good restaurants and bakeries, and might also provide some discounts which can help you a lot.
3. Deciding on the budget: Although it is the very first step to take, but it is better to keep in check with your budget planning during your bookings, as the cuisine and catering tend to go out of budget. Track your budget through an excel sheet or a hand written chart with all expenses mentioned on it.
4. Crowd-pleasing or Your Favorite? : This is quite the dilemma you’ll face while deciding on the menu. It is your wedding but you are inviting your family, friends, relatives, and all acquaintances to share this happiness with and to celebrate with. Hence, you should incorporate their expectations along with your favorite snack. Some points to keep in mind:
Appetizers and Welcome drinks- Time to be creative, you can add any snack which you like, along with a drink which would be suitable according to the weather. Remember, first impression is the last impression.
- It is fine if you’re hosting all vegetarian guests, but if your family has non vegetarians too, then you need to expand your menu a bit. Main point to keep in mind is, to set up their stalls at a fair distance from each other, and mention their names and the main ingredients on small placards.
- Your guests would include all age groups, from kids to elders. So to keep the menu varied, with dish which the kids would love and food that the elderly would digest, is the best way to ensure a perfect cuisine.
- While you can experiment with the menu, try to include your signature dish too. Guests would definitely enjoy the authentic delicacy of your culture.
Now that you’ve got all important points to keep in mind for your big day, get set go to make those lists and rock your wedding!
