Preparing Your Wedding Reception

Jul 15, 2008
Something that people often remember when they go to a wedding reception is the food, whether it's good or bad. Something to consider when you are choosing your wedding menu is your guests.

Yes, it's your wedding but you are spending a lot of money so you want people to like what is being served. Here are some tips so that people enjoy your reception food.

Wedding Reception Food

It's always a good idea to offer your guests a choice on what they would like to eat for your wedding reception People may have food allergies, so this way they can choose what they would like to eat. Two choices is enough.

Keep it simple -

Just because it's not something fancy, it doesn't meant hat it won't be good. If they are faced with something that they aren't sure what it is, they may be reluctant to eat it so don't go for things that people can't identify.

Keep it clean -

Everyone at your wedding reception is going to be wearing their best clothes. You want to stay away from food that is very messy or could cause stains that will be hard to remove.

Remember, you are going to be wearing a white dress. The last thing you will want is to have something spill on it that may ruin it, or will be very noticeable.

Think about what you have had in the past at wedding receptions, and what you liked or didn't like about them. That will help you plan your own wedding reception menu.

Wedding Cake

One of the biggest focal points of a wedding reception is the beautiful wedding cake. That towering, flowering, blinding beautiful wedding cake with the two people standing on top, that the bride and groom cut and then feed to one another.

Although a lot of brides and grooms go with the traditional pound cake taste, it doesn't have to be that way.

If you don't go with the traditional pound cake taste for all of your layers, keep in mind that not everyone is going to like lemon or raspberry, or any other exotic flavors.

One popular alternative is chocolate chip cake. Another idea is to go with alternating chocolate and vanilla.

The top of your cake is traditionally saved and eaten on your first wedding anniversary. So choose the flavor that both of you will enjoy and make that your wedding topper.

Although a lot of cakes are purchased in a traditional bakery, there are a lot of supermarkets that make delicious cakes that aren't as expensive.

If you are working on a budget, shop around for prices on wedding cakes and be sure to sample them. You may be surprised at what supermarkets can do.

If you have someone that has taken a cake decorating class and makes great cakes, you may find that they will do it as a wedding present and it will save you some money.

A wedding cake doesn't have to be expensive to be delicious, and you can find plenty of money saving ideas when looking for your wedding cake.
