Food

You need to choose what style of menu you want I suggest if there is going to be a period between the ceremony and sitting down for dinner then some canapés, finger food or something as simple as bread and dips to start.

  • Buffet - A buffet dinner can be an excellent alternative to a sit down, plated meal. This alternative is still traditional, and usually comes in at a lower overall price point than a plated menu. The flexibility and choice offered on a buffet means that the variety of food items can reflect you and your guests taste.
  • Family Style - reflects a large family gathering around the table. Somewhere in between a sit down, plated meal and a buffet dinner, this type of service has options for mains and sides and is brought to you and your guests at the table. Dishes of food are passed among the guests at the table, allowing everyone to take as much or as little as they want. Passing and sharing in this way creates an environment for friends and family break the ice while they break the bread. A round table or extra wide rectangular table is required with this option to accommodate the bowls and platters.
  • Plated Seated Meal - a seated meal offers structure and formality to your reception. This can be a more traditional form of service and so guests are comfortable in this setting. You can offer your guests a choice of main with your invitation that can be pre-ordered online,  just be sure to get any allergies and food restrictions before the event! Tables can be round, square or rectangular and can be oriented in many different ways seating 6 to 12 at a table.
