We’ve all seen people posting pictures of elegant servings of food when at a fancy restaurant or a glitzy event. This, of course, might be one of the driving forces behind you wrestling with the idea of spending an arm and a leg on the catering at your wedding. However, there’s something you should know – wedding food doesn’t have to be social media-friendly!
BrideBook’s newest survey has found that 30% of brides and grooms now ask guests to refrain from posting photos of their wedding day on social media. In fact, 13% even banned the use of social media altogether! So, with it being acceptable to say ‘no’ to sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on your big day, what catering options can be left on the table? Here are three to think about.
A meal like pie and mash might not be social media-worthy, but it will certainly be appealing to those couples looking to stay within budget. After all, wedding planning site Hitched recently determined that 65% of brides and grooms now go over budget when tying the knot. Why push yourself to the financial limit when you can just go with an affordable, delicious option like pie and mash van hire?
Who cares if a meal looks mind-blowingly attractive as long as it fills you up? In this regard, you can’t beat a burger van hire.
It’s unlikely to have guests reaching for the camera, but you can guarantee it will leave them satisfied and full of energy to enjoy the rest of your big day.
The problem with choosing social media-friendly food is that you actually start catering to please a small group of people. Once you forget about this aim, you can choose a dish that everyone – including young children and the elderly – love, such as fish and chips. It’s a universally-adored catering option that will put a smile on the faces of everyone in attendance.
Forget about social media on your wedding day! There are more important things to think about, such as arranging for a meal of substance to be served to your guests.
For help with this, be sure to check out KK Catering for a range of amazing options available to you and your betrothed.
Your friends, family and colleagues will attend your wedding to watch you tie the knot. They might also expect food, drinks and a good time, but they won’t expect you and your betrothed to have broken the bank. Especially when it comes to the food, in fact, it’s fair to say that your guests will actually expect you to choose an affordable catering option on your big day. With this in mind, here’s why the sight of cheap and cheerful food won’t come as a surprise to anyone on your big day.
Hitched’s new survey has the total number of guests sitting at 106 people for each wedding. Since that figure rises each year, it’s becoming more understandable that brides and grooms won’t be able to fork out for luxury catering for so many mouths.
Due to this, those in attendance will be expecting, (as well as very happy with) affordable food, such as fish and chip van hire.
The average wedding now sets couples back a whopping £32,273. This sum of money is actually more than the average salary in the UK. With brides and grooms facing such mounting costs, most will presume that they’ll have to cut corners somewhere. A lavish sit-down meal should be the first to go, especially since it can be swapped with something equally as scrumptious, such as pie and mash van hire.
According to Hitched, 54% of couples now ask for cash as a present from their guests when saying ‘I do’. This openness pretty much reveals that brides and grooms are being pushed to the financial limit ahead of walking down the aisle – and therefore guests won’t go into the big day expecting huge expenditure.
And why should they when they’ll be pleased with a hearty meal from the likes of burger van hire?
Your wedding will be one of the most special days of your life, but it’s certainly not worth spending beyond your means. After all, sometimes the best options – such as those provided by KK Catering – are cheap, cheerful and guaranteed to leave a smile on people’s faces.
Are you one of the 3.5 million people in the UK who now identify as vegan? Have you adopted a plant-based lifestyle and want to have a vegetarian wedding?
Whether you choose to stay true to your beliefs and values and stay strictly green or want to cater for the meat eaters among your friends and family, catering your wedding with food trucks could be the savvy way to satisfy everyone.
To meat or not to meat?
Whether you’re new to a plant-based diet or you’re a lifelong vegan, one of the hardest decisions for a veggie bride is whether to allow meat or not. After all, this is your special day so shouldn’t Uncle Bob be able to do without a bacon butty for 24 hours? Besides, there are so many truly delicious vegetarian and vegan alternatives out there that will satisfy any appetite.
The problem is that no one wants to plan a wedding where the guests complain about not enjoying the food. And if that means providing meat for the carnivores should you bite the bullet and serve it up? See the website for all different food units, but one solution might be stone baked pizza van hire which offers plenty of delicious vegetarian options. After all, true Italian pizza is simply marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese and it’s no less delicious for that.
A feast for all
If you have made the decision to go vegan and live a meat and cheese free life, how do you create a feast that embraces everyone? Don’t think of your menu as preaching to the unconverted – instead, look at it as an opportunity to show friends and family how delicious a vegan diet can be.
A good place to start is the foods of Asia which are often naturally vegetarian and vegan yet offer familiar flavours that everyone loves – so much that they won’t miss the meat. After all who can resist a bowl of piping hot noodles fresh from the wok? We have various food units including a noodle bar and worldwide street food food truck that will satisfy all your guests from gluten free grannies to flexitarian fish eaters while enjoying the plant-based cuisine you love.
Are you planning an autumn or winter wedding? Peak wedding season may have passed along with the warm summer days, but an autumn or winter wedding can be a beautiful event. Gorgeous autumn colours make the perfect backdrop for your wedding snaps. It’s also a great excuse to enjoy some good old-fashioned comfort food.
Banish the blues
When the weather gets colder, nobody wants fancy finger food at a wedding! What your guests probably crave more than anything is something delicious, warming and filling to banish the winter blues and get the celebrations underway. Who doesn’t want pie and mash to warm them up? Can you resist a crisp-skinned, fluffy inside jacket potato with all the trimmings when it’s cold outside?
Perk up with pizza
Imagine it – the crisp pizza base, the rich sauce, the melted cheese oozing as it comes out of the oven. Pizza is the perfect winter wedding food, and pizza van hire for weddings is becoming an increasingly popular choice.
One survey has found that pepperoni is the nation’s favourite, closely followed by the classic Margherita – the topping possibilities are endless, so what would be your first choice?
Burgers for all
Forget dainty canapés at your autumn or winter wedding. Who doesn’t love a good burger when the celebratory beers and wine are flowing?
Burger van hire is the perfect way to celebrate – from Angus beef to crispy chicken, pick the filling of your choice and layer it up with sizzling onions, melting cheese, crisp lettuce and an incredible array of sauces. Only question is, how many toppings can you pile in before you can’t get your mouth round it?
Turn up the heat
When it’s cold outside, something hot and spicy can be just the ticket. Once you’ve finished the outdoor photos and need some comfort food to warm you up, why not add some South American sunshine with burrito van hire?
Soft tortilla wraps, 12-hour smoked pulled pork and all the sauces and trimmings you can throw at it. Don’t forget the nachos!
Winter’s a great excuse (if any were needed) for some good comfort grub. Check out our website for all the incredible catering vans you could hire for your winter wedding, and prepare to celebrate in style!
Planning a wedding is one demanding task that can make your head spin. It’s likely that you’ve attended only a handful of weddings, making it tricky for you to plan your own. Studies indicate that 80% of embarrassing wedding moments come as a result of poor planning. So, how do you go about making your nuptials memorable for the right reasons?
Working out the Wedding budget
How many guests are you planning to invite? Where do you intend to hold the wedding reception? Are there hotels that will give you offers and value for your money? It’s important to ask yourself such questions to guide you through the planning process. Knowing the number of guests you plan to invite to your wedding will help you to select a venue that will accommodate them. This will also help you to avoid hiring a venue that is too small or too large.
