With 86% of wedding organisers preferring non-traditional serving options at their wedding, the opportunities for catering services to try something different at these events are greater than ever. Whether as an alternative to a sit-down meal or as a post-dancing snack option, wedding organisers will want something unique and delicious that all guests can enjoy.
2. Rise of “D.I.Y” buffet style options
Food has become more of an experience at weddings than ever before and if you can include a little bit of theatre in your meal preparation then you are guaranteed to draw a crowd. People enjoy seeing their food cooked and presented in front of them - hog roasts and pizza ovens are a terrific way to do this without exhausting finances.
3. Themes and Ingredients
Pick a theme – and run with it! Incorporating one ingredient or food type into all elements of a wedding buffet is bang on trend. For example, different sauces to accompany each dish, or edible flowers alongside meat that match your arrangements.
4. Desserts…not just fruit cakes
Three tier fruit cakes are by far a thing of the past in 2018. The rise in buffet-style services extends to desserts too. People want options, whether in the form of a tiered cake with multiple different flavours or.. (stay with me!) a savoury cake option. Cheese towers with accompanying sauces or pork pie stacks for the meat-lovers in attendance will definitely go down a storm. Take a risk and try something out of the box that will surprise your guests!
5. Keep it casual but classy
The most common trend across all wedding sites and magazines is keeping it casual and comforting this year. But that doesn’t mean it can’t also be classy! Switch up tradition and opt for fish & chips or fresh pizza just don’t forget to incorporate some quality style. You can do this in the form of personalised bags for your chips or serving your pizza with toppings chosen by guests on wooden boards for a rustic feel.
