7 Budgeting Tips To Save On Wedding Catering
Are you planning your reception in a budget? Wedding is an expensive affair and allocating budgets to the various wedding essentials is a difficult task. Catering is an add-on expense. So if you’re hosting your wedding within a set budget then here are 7 best ways to keep your catering budget in check without letting your guests to return on a hungry stomach.
1. Serve Only Two Or Three Courses
After a sampling of Hors D'oeuvres and drinks, a two or three-course meal would suffice. Instead of serving a variety of the main course cuisines consider having lesser variations. Most Indian weddings serve paneer dishes, mixed veg, dal, saag, chole, rice variants, puri or naan give your wedding menu a touch of uniqueness with the mix and match of fusion and desi food. The idea behind this is to serve more at the cost of less. So if your caterer insists upon including expensive additional courses then don’t be afraid to veto them.
2. Go Easy On The Appetizers
It is common for the caterers to suggest a number of appetizers and snacks but while selecting the ones that you need to include in your menu choose the ones keeping in mind your guest list. Have something for everyone. An abundance of appetizers would overshadow your main course. Appetizers like corn fritters, aloo tikki, dahi bhalla, chowmein, evergreen cheela, risottos, pizza, golgappe are common at the modern Indian weddings. Instead of going the old school way and including the same dishes use your imagination to serve deconstructed dishes that use the original ingredients yet enhances the flavor of the food with its unique cooking style.
3. Moderate Your Bar
If you’re planning to host a fully stocked bar with every imaginable liquor variety then its going to add on to your expense. You can do a cost-cutting at the bar by excluding hard liquor and including only beer, wine, champagne, vodka or you can opt for mixed mocktails and cocktails to add a dash of drama to your bar.
4. Opt For In Season And Local Ingredients
To save on a few bucks consider opting for in season and local ingredients. Offseason ingredients are expensive. Suppose you’re having a mid-winter wedding then a strawberry salad can be a pricy affair. Similarly having gajar ka halwa for desserts in a summer wedding proves to be expensive.
5. Supplement With Food Stations
Add more charm to your wedding as you supplement your reception dinner with food stations. Impress your guests with a sushi bar, grilled sandwich station or perhaps a live cooking counter.
