Planning your wedding but can’t quite stomach the boring, predictable wedding food that your caterer keeps insisting on? It's your wedding and you can eat what you want to! Here are a few creatively quirky wedding food ideas to consider that you can be sure the guests will still appreciate.
Pub grub is particularly popular among Britons and is essentially informal food served at the local pub. Some pubs, like The Corner House pub
in Windsor, do it better than others, but more often than not, it is endlessly satisfying and delicious. Think juicy pub burgers, tasty roast dinners awash with flavorsome gravy, classic fish and chips, and generously seasoned BBQ ribs. Who could say no to all that?
DIY food stations
Some guests are notoriously picky eaters. Instead of trying to please everyone with your wedding menu
, allow them the opportunity to choose exactly what they want to eat with the help of DIY food stations. There are many options to choose from, such as a build your own pizza station where guests can select from a variety of mouthwatering toppings (kids will have a blast with this too) or a build your own burritos, where they can choose from a host of tasty fillings and eat as much as they want.
This classic Spanish rice and seafood dish is irresistible. It is usually cooked in a massive wok and it yields plenty of food to feed the masses without any worry about running out. It is convenient, different, and sure to be a hit with almost everybody.
Fancy afternoon tea
Why not consider a fancy afternoon tea party for your reception? This is a lovely idea if you are hosting it in a beautiful garden and it is spring or summertime. Opt for all the classic high tea favorites from scones and colorful cupcakes to cucumber sandwiches and sugar cubes! The setting will allow for plenty of truly stunning photos too.
Do it the Greek way and opt for sharing platters overflowing with sumptuous snacks for every palate. The great thing about sharing platters is that they encourage guests to really interact and engage with each other, making for the perfect ice breaker if some have never met before. Furthermore, seeing as though the platters feature a wide range of different foods to choose from, there is sure to be something for everybody. Some people will only opt to use sharing platters for the starters, but it is indeed possible to carry the theme through to the mains and the dessert. Just get creative with finger foods and be sure that you serve enough of them.
Bowl food at weddings
is quite trendy at the moment. Plus, if you serve curry, you will be giving your guests a chance to sample a new cuisine and taste something that they probably weren't expecting. Just remember that not everyone is able to tolerate spicy food, so always ensure that you have a mild or plain option for those with sensitive taste buds.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with ideas before finally settling on the perfect wedding food for your special day. There is no doubt that people will be talking about the epic celebratory gastronomic experience for many years to come!
