Planning a wedding can take a great deal of time and effort. It may take months of planning in order to find the best wedding photographer, and help create a wedding that is just as the bride imagines and wants. Many aspects of the wedding need to be thought about during the entire planning process. This includes factors such as where the wedding is being held, the date of the wedding, the kind of dress the bride and her bridesmaids are going to wear and even the color scheme that is going to be used during the reception. All of these factors go into helping to create a wedding that is both memorable and fun at the same time.
One of the most important aspects of any wedding is the menu that is going to be served. Many brides think carefully about the kind of foods that they want to serve to their guests. This may take the form of many options. Someone may opt for a sit down dinner that allows them to provide a series of formal courses to their guests while they dine. Another person may want to opt for a buffet style plan that allows the guests to pick from multiple main courses and find one that they happen to like. The buffet style can be an ideal way to offer many varied options to guests and provide for multiple kinds of tastes at the same time.
When deciding on this kind of menu, it is important to keep several factors in mind. Many wedding caterers offer buffet menus that are designed around a specific theme. The bride can opt for a buffet with an Indian theme that offers items such as butter chicken, samosas, dosas and a varied selection of Indian desserts. She can also pick out options that may allow her to offer a buffet designed around a specific theme such as Mardi Gras or Thanksgiving. This can be an excellent way for the bride to serve a menu that is in tune with the season of her wedding.
A winter bride can pick out a menu of buffet items that uses holiday themes such as roast turkey, cranberry sauces, goose, candied yams, mashed potatoes, creamed green beans and a wide array of desserts that are served at this time of year such as pecan pie, sweet potato pie, cranberry tart and a traditional wedding cake with icing and other flourishes as well.
