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.

 

 

Pizza is hardly known as traditional wedding food. But why should that stop you from serving it on your big day? If the happiest day of your life is right around the corner, it’s time that you realised how pizza – and many other non-traditional dishes – could be perfect for you and your guests. In case you need your arm twisting, let’s look at three great reasons to serve pizza at your wedding.


Universality


Who doesn’t love pizza? Very few people it turns out. According to the government’s 2017 National Food Survey, more people are eating pizza than ever before in the UK.

In fact, the average person now chows down on 75 grams of pizza each week! Due to this, you can bet that your guests won’t be disappointed to see that you’ve chosen pizza van hire to supply the catering for your wedding.


Variety


There are endless options when it comes to pizza toppings. While you might be partial to the likes of buffalo chicken on yours, others might instead prefer a more simplistic margarita. This is only taking into account personal preference and doesn’t factor in dietary requirements, which can also be catered for with pizza. Ultimately, you’re making sure that every guest is served a meal that they can actually enjoy.


Health


Don’t be fooled by its reputation; pizza can indeed be healthy. Meat toppings, for instance, provide a substantial source of protein. Meanwhile, those with vegetables on can be rather nutritious. In terms of your wedding, pizzas can sometimes have the power to reduce hangovers for your guests.

In 2017, a Pizza Express survey revealed: “Such nutrients also help to reduce tiredness and fatigue, one of the key problems after a night of partying.”


Feeling hungry?


Just the thought of serving pizza at your wedding will probably make you feel hungry. That’s without mentioning all the other tasty food vans that you can choose from at KK Catering. If you’re weighing up your options ahead of your big day, be sure to get in touch to hear about all our exciting and affordable catering options.

Entertainment has typically been a big cost at weddings. Not only does this trend show no signs of slowing down, but a recent survey has found that couples are now splashing out more money than ever before on music.

According to Bridebrook, in 2018 the tunes – whether played by a band or DJ – came on average at a cost of £1,039. Now no one is suggesting that brides and grooms should cut this expenditure. Instead, couples should take precautions to ensure that their choice of catering complements the entertainment. With this in mind, here’s how the food could spoil the dancing.


Sluggishness


A mammoth three-course meal will risk leaving your guests feeling sluggish. They won’t even have a choice if it’s a sit-down meal, as plate after plate will be brought to them. Who’d feel like dancing after that? Thankfully, if you allow people to choose their own portions – perhaps from the likes of baked potato van hire. You should find that they’re still able to get up and bust a move after eating.


Expense


The average wedding guest now expects a certain level of entertainment – hence why the cost of music is so high! You can keep up with the high standard if you’re clever when choosing your catering options.

For instance, if you opt for something tasty yet affordable – like fish and chip van hire – you shouldn’t find that the food budget has cut into how much you can spend on the entertainment.


Regiment


The entertainment at your wedding will no doubt have been chosen with the aim of helping guests loosen up and relax. This is unlikely to happen though if you’ve opted for a rather regimented meal. One where people aren’t given much choice to move around or choose from different dishes. This just increases the likelihood that your guests won’t feel the urge to dance to the music at your wedding because they’ll feel restricted.


Be careful!


There’s nothing wrong with playing it safe with your wedding food. If you’re keen to serve up the right grub before your guests hit the dance-floor, be sure to check out the options available at 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.
