The Food you serve at your wedding will play a BIG part in your day, and is likely biggest expense you will bear. For this reason getting the food right and making sure your guests are happy is a big part of your planning. There are so many choices these days of different sorts of catering options, and so many ways to make sure your personalities shine through in your menu choice.
When deciding on your menu, keep in mind that some of your guests will have special diet considerations. There will always be a handful of people who are gluten free/vegan/vegetarian, and while you can try to arrange options for these people, it’s not always possible to please everyone.
While selecting a menu you should bear in mind that the food should look good and equally should taste great. That’s the key point of a great menu.
Before you select any caterer, make sure you taste the food before. Try as many caterers as you can and take few family members with you so that they can help you in selecting the best caterer that has the best food.

Don’t be afraid to serve your guests your favorite dishes, even if you are afraid it’s not formal enough, the chances are your guests will love it too! If something isn’t on your caterer’s menu it’s always worth discussing your requirements with them to see if they can create something specifically for your wedding. If you absolutely love fish and chips or pie and mash or biryani and salad it’s worth exploring with your caterer ways of incorporating this into your meal.
