The traditional wedding dinner can be the ideal choice for many couples; however, it is far from the only option. If the standard “chicken or fish” wedding meal does not seem like it would suit you and your spouse-to-be, here are three other alternatives that you may want to consider.
• Potluck – Although this “down home” dinner may not seem classy enough for a wedding, it can be a fun choice for a casual coupling. Have your guests bring a favorite dish and everyone will enjoy many family favorites. Encourage guests to write down their recipes and share them with the bride-to-be as an extra gift.
• Food Trucks – The food truck craze is at an all-time high. Why not bring in a couple of local favorites and let them cater your wedding on the spot? This affordable option can deliver a lot of fun. If your wedding is especially big, you can bring in a variety of trucks to cover all kinds of tastes.
• Salad Bar – A bit “greener” than the typical buffet, a salad bar is affordable, classy and healthy. Choosing a salad bar is one way to keep costs down without forgoing the meal altogether. With the addition of bread and perhaps soups, you can make a meal that is still memorable.
As you can see, you do not have to go with the same old meal for your wedding! Do not be afraid to try something different, and you will create a day that the couple and their guests will never forget.
