A barn wedding? A lovely walk down the aisle decorated with wisteria flowers. Saying your vows in a flower-filled, blissful garden with rustic charm. Perhaps, a first kiss with a confetti shower raining down on you both.
It ticks all boxes, doesn’t it?
But no wedding is complete with a delightful wedding meal. A lot of excitement is usually around the dress and decor, but I’m sure everyone will be interested in what’s served at the event.
Speaking of food, the wedding menu has clearly evolved. But one thing has not changed at all: people want to have very good food.
Just putting food on the table doesn’t cut it anymore. The tired plated food is gone.
Think about it. It’s the social media era, where the delectable Instagrammable-type food is always trending and the bland-looking and bland-tasting food is no longer appreciated. Hence, it is de rigueur for couples to provide a decadent meal that their guests will never forget in their lifetime.
If you’re looking to get started on your wedding meal-planning, here are some unique ideas to have your guests treat themselves to some delicious sweets and drinks on your ultimate day.
Ice Cream Cart
To get to do adult stuff, like getting married, is ok. But it’s even more cool to bring in an ice cream cart with a relaxed, boho, non-traditional decor that lends itself beautifully to add a unique twist to your wedding.
Picture your event with an adorable ice cream cart right by the dessert table in the mix. How sweet will it be? Awesome, right? Not only will it pique the interest of all your guests but also bring back nostalgic kid-like feels and memories in some of them. And, the best part is nobody will complain about waiting in line-- to get their share of creamy goodness.
Besides, it is a great wedding prop to click some memorable pictures that your grandkids will swoon over.
Wedding food choices have become simpler, and some traditional items are on their way out. Tiered wedding cakes, to name one, are no longer the sacrosanct option that they once were.
They are on their way out. And taking their place are cronies, pies or individual sweet treats like crepes, mini churros dipped in hot chocolate, quartered doughnuts. Also in favor are one-bite sweets with attractive bourbon pairings, and cookie bars with layers of brownie etc.
Considered more present-day and personal, these sweets are clearly a much better option for those wanting to give their guests a fluid and fun way to try out a few different sweets.
Last but not least, a wedding-ready drinks cart is all you need to seal the deal. Whether it is a glass of G&T for evening aperitif or a wee dram of whisky at the wedding afterparty, alcohol is a regular feature at most weddings in the UK. Adding a drink station that serves flavored gins and cocktails would be a great idea to turn your guests into bartenders and mixologists on your D-day. Be sure to have them serve soft drinks for those who fancy something refreshing and thirst-quenching without the boozy kick.
You want your wedding to be as special and memorable for the whole family and guests as it is for yourself. It is quite normal to want to take on more responsibility yourselves just so that everything goes to plan on your big day. But not at the cost of having fun. It’s your wedding and you should be having a blast with your friends and family. Not stressing about catering or something else.
