What To Ask Yourself When Deciding On A Menu For Your Wedding - Sophie Wright Catering

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

So, you have proposed marriage, your proposal has been accepted, and you are now looking forward to your wedding day. So far, so good. However, preparing your nuptials will require a lot of work – especially when it comes to selecting the food for the wedding menu.

After all, this menu should be as special as the couple who are putting it together. That’s why it could help if you answer the following questions when preparing this menu… 

What types of food do both you and your partner like?

If you are always ‘the picky one’ at a restaurant, deciding what food to order for your own wedding could prove even more taxing. That’s largely due to the ‘paradox of choice’ that can leave you feeling horribly indecisive. Fortunately, there remain ways for you to narrow down the options.

For a start, consider what dishes you as a couple both love – or at least, don’t dislike. Once you have listed every food option that at least one of you dislikes, you could hand this list to my team of private wedding catering specialists so that they know what to work without.

Who are you inviting to the wedding?

One obviously important reason for this question is that you need to know allergies any of the wedding’s guests may have. Naturally, by reaching out to these guests ahead of time, you can find out this information as well as details of any special dietary preferences.  

What is your budget?

Your budget: it’s a dull subject, but it does need addressing. Having a tight budget in this instance can actually prove a surprising boon, as it can enable you to quickly rule out certain food options that you would never be able to financially account for anyway. 

What would you like for your wedding breakfast?

Although it is traditional for a single three-course or four-course meal to constitute the wedding breakfast, this is not a cast-iron requirement. Hence, there is scope for experimentation with how the wedding breakfast is served to you and your partner. 

You could opt for an outdoor standing buffet, or spread out three separate but relatively small meals throughout the wedding day if the schedule will be prolonged. Another idea would be an afternoon tea – a great combination of traditional and contemporary elements!

Even if you currently only have vague ideas for what food you would rejoice in seeing served on your special day, you could get in touch with me for my advice. Me and my team are highly experienced in private wedding catering, and so know what ideas tend to especially work.
