wedding reception foodSomething that wedding guests will often remember when they go to a wedding reception is the quality of the food, was it good or was it bad. Just something to consider when you are selecting 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 the food that is being served.  Here are a few tips so that your wedding guests will enjoy your reception menu.

Give guests a choice.
It’s always a good idea to offer your guests a choice on what they would like to eat at your wedding reception. Some people have food allergies, so offering a variety means they can opt for what they would like to eat. Two choices is usually enough variety.

Keep it simple.
Just because it is not something real fancy, that does not mean that it will not be any good. If they are faced with something that they aren’t sure what it is, they may be hesitant to eat it, so don’t choose items for your wedding menu that your guests can’t readily 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 eaten in the past at other wedding receptions. The selections you preferred or those that you didn’t like. That will help you plan your own wedding reception menu.
