Planning a wedding is no easy task; from choosing the perfect venue to finding a beautiful wedding dress. Every bride seems to have a never-ending checklist! Among these wedding necessities that help to create an idyllic occasion, lies the wedding catering. Arguably, the priority for many excitable guests.
Deciding on the perfect menu for your special day can be daunting, as trends are continuously changing and you want to pick dishes that best suit the theme for the day and your guests tastes.
As wedding caterers in Essex, we can appreciate there is often a lot of options to choose from and so to ease the pressure of researching which foods you would like to indulge in on your special day. We have compiled a list of 2018’s newest wedding food trends to see which ones might work for you:
Firstly, throughout 2017 the British public became obsessed with all things fresh and organic – as we increasingly insist on supporting local businesses and agriculture. Wedding caterers recognise the growing demand for it and accommodate accordingly. Many couples are choosing to even share a ‘locally inspired menu’, placing information on tables for their guests to see where their meal is from.
In addition, at Perfect Day Caterers we source the best quality local produce. Including Newmarket Sausages, meat from Priors Hall Farm. Just 10 miles away and groceries from our local village green grocers.
Typically, weddings include a seated three-course meal with waiter service. This remains to be a simple, sophisticated option for couples who desire an organised and faultless wedding day.
However, it is becoming increasingly popular for wedding couples to allow their guests more flexibility. Building their own meal from a buffet, lavished with an assortment of different foods. This may alleviate stress associated with RSVPs and managing guests special dietary requirements. As a result, this form of dining may allow for a more relaxed, casual approach to the wedding meal.
3. Late night snacks:
Although your wedding guests will be easily satisfied following a luxurious wedding meal or extravagant buffet. They would undoubtedly love to be tempted by fun, quirky late-night snacks. Particularly after an evening of celebratory champagne! It is increasingly popular to offer sliders and individual bowls of street-food inspired dishes. Or miniature pots of chips – with tastings of the delicious wedding cake available as the night develops! Similarly, sweet carts are an ever-popular treat at many weddings this season. Offering a bottomless selection of pick ‘n’ mix sweets to satisfy that sweet tooth!
Lastly, these are just three of the more popular wedding food trends, that you will be sure to see in 2018.
