The ‘first dance’ is a wedding tradition that dates all the way back to 16th century Europe. It’s had many incarnations, now ranging from slow movements between newlyweds to the entire wedding party busting out a pre-rehearsed routine.

According to Brides Magazine, it’s most common to happen after guests have eaten – meaning the catering actually plays a big part in whether it’s a hit or a miss. With this in mind, let’s look at three ways the food can be the key to whether or not you have a successful first dance on your wedding day.


Mood


Food – especially the right food – has the power to make you happy! This is obviously very important if you want to have a spring in your step during the first dance. If you’ve just savoured a slice of heaven from pizza van hire, you’ll certainly have something to dance about when you stand up in front of your guests. After all, you should feel looser and better prepared to throw some shapes.


Energy


You need to have high energy levels for your first dance – especially if you’re going modern and choosing a fast-paced routine. Your wedding day can be long and tiring, what with getting up early and spending hours getting ready before the ceremony even begins.

If you choose something with plenty of substance – perhaps the delights from burger van hire – it will give you newfound energy by the time you hit the dance floor.



Movements


If you sit down for a lavish multi-course meal you are likely to feel slightly sluggish afterwards. In fact, an elaborate dance might be the furthest thing from your mind! Luckily, smaller meals – such as a portion of fish and chips – won’t be overbearing. You can eat as much or as little as you feel is necessary before the time comes to wow your guests with your dance moves.


It’s almost time!

 


Your first dance is a once in a lifetime kind of thing – so you’ll want to make sure you blow people away! If you’re keen to let the food be your secret weapon for this, be sure to check out the catering options available at KK Catering.

The Italians use the phrase ‘al fresco’ to describe the act of dining outside. It’s a popular way to eat overseas – and it could be a great way for your guests to eat too! If you’re holding an event soon and are banking on the weather being pleasant, then you can’t go wrong with treating your guests to an outdoor meal. Whether you’re weighing up burger van hire, fish and chips, pie and mash, or many other catering options, here are three benefits of eating outside for your guests.


Space


Your choice of venue needn’t be a constraint if you opt for a catering option that can be served outside. It means that you and your guests can make the most of the additional space. Without having to be packed in within the same four walls.

This isn’t just helpful from a practical standpoint. It can also go some length to ensuring that people are able to relax and feel comfortable at your event.



Taste


Do you know that it’s been found that food actually tastes better when you eat it outside? This is because the fresh air makes us more present, in the process giving us the ability to get a more heightened sense of taste from our meals. Pizzas, for instance, are delicious. But they’re especially tasty when consumed outside by someone who’s just been served a heavenly slice from a mobile food van.


Health


Your duty as host is to tend to your guests’ needs. What’s a better way to do this than by keeping them healthy? According to a Japanese study published in 2009, outside elements – such as trees and plants – give off health-boosting phytoncides that heighten the immune system.

Team this with the fact that your super tasty dishes can reduce a person’s stress levels. You can be confident that your guests arrive and leave in tiptop shape!


What a great idea!


You won’t regret choosing a catering option which ensures your guests can make the most of the great outdoors during your event. For more information on different dishes that you could offer, be sure to check out KK Catering.

 

 

Your wedding should be the happiest day of your life. Sadly, all too often brides and grooms find themselves trying to put a smile on other people’s faces when planning their big day. Even if it goes against what they really want.

This isn’t how it’s meant to be. Instead, you shouldn’t be afraid to put your own needs first.  Whether it’s with the venue, the date or, of course, the catering. With this in mind, here are three reasons why you and your betrothed should be at the centre of every decision you make when choosing the food for your wedding.


Money


Never forget that it’s you who foots the bill. In fact, recent surveys have found that brides and grooms are picking up the tab more so than at other time in history.

Wedding planning site Hitched have just determined that two out of five couples don’t receive any financial help from family when getting married. Be sure to bear this in mind when you come across affordable options,  such as fish and chip van hire. That would suit you and your betrothed perfectly.


Numbers


Can you actually please everyone? No, not really. After all, Hitched has found that an average of 106 guests now attend the typical wedding reception. There’s no way that you can put a smile on all these people’s faces.

So why not make sure that you and your better half are sorted instead? The chances are that as long as you’re happy with the likes of burger van hire, then everyone else will be too.


Memories


Keep in mind that’s it’s you who will remember your wedding day for the rest of your life. Other people will have their own. So the memories you make when you say ‘I do’ will be cherished mostly by you and your new spouse.

With this in mind, feel free to throw caution to the wind and choose a catering option that you won’t regret in years to come.

 


Happily Ever After…


Now that you know the focus should be on you when deciding upon the food for your wedding. Be sure to check out the wide variety of catering options available at KK Catering.

It’s so important to establish the right atmosphere at your wedding. This is arguably why we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of these type of ceremonies over the past few years. According to Confetti, the most popular theme is ‘rustic/woodland’ with 16% of couples opting to go down this route.

Others chose to do things with a ‘vintage’ or ‘traditional’ twist. Why do brides and grooms make these decisions? Well, it all comes down to the fact that they think a theme will help establish the desired atmosphere on their big day. In reality, couples can achieve this simply by choosing the right catering. With this in mind, here’s how you can let the food dictate the atmosphere at your wedding.


Welcoming


How do you make every guest feel at home at your wedding? With food! A universal favourite like fish and chip van hire should make each and every one of your guests feel welcome on your special day.

Don’t forget, recent statistics have found that the average wedding reception now features over 100 friends and family.


Authenticity


The best way to let your true love shine through can be by putting the focus on your relationship. Rather than making your wedding feel too swish, over-the-top or, dare we say, forced, you can keep things real with a simplistic and down to earth catering option like pie and mash van hire.


Relaxation


The right food option can put the brakes on your wedding becoming a stuffy or rigid affair. You’ll find that by serving something that’s more casual.

Perhaps burger van hire – you can avoid the regiment that comes from a traditional sit-down meal. This, in turn, can really help your guests relax and enjoy your special day.


Try it!


Rather than stressing about finding a theme that will establish the right atmosphere at your wedding, you can let the food dictate the mood. If you’re looking to weigh up all the exciting options when it comes to the catering on your big day, be sure to check out the choices available at KK Catering.

 

January can be a bleak month for many. After an indulgent festive period, filled with rich foods and celebrations, many opt to abstain from indulging too much, committing to strict diets for their new year’s resolutions or choosing to take part in ‘veganuary’ and becoming vegan for the month of January.


When Is National Pie Day


With blue Monday usually falling on the third Monday of January, allegedly the most depressing day of the year, and dry January meaning that many choose to skip their usual weekend tipple.

National Pie day on January 23rd is perhaps the perfect excuse to have a brief break from the constrictions you have committed yourself to for this austere and dreary month. Getting people together for some warming comfort food and a party is undoubtedly one of the best ways to overcome the January blues.

 


Who Invented It?


National Pie Day is an international annual celebration of pies, and all of their merits. Invented by Charlie Papazian – an American nuclear engineer, brewer and author. He declared his birthday – 23rd of January to be National pie day, and since 1986, this celebration has been sponsored by the American Pie Council.

This international celebration of the pie might be the perfect opportunity for you to offer your employees a morale-boosting and motivational reward for all of their hard work the previous year, and what better way to celebrate National Pie day, than with a British classic – pie and mash. Maybe a busy festive period left no time for a Christmas party in December, so you’re looking for an (albeit slightly late) alternative time and excuse to throw an event.


Pie & Mash Van Hire


KK Catering offer Pie and mash van hire for any celebration, offering you an easy and stress-free way to ensure that your guests’ appetites are sated, with minimal hassle.
