Menu cards for your dream wedding
There are questions that you have to deal with while preparing your wedding. Should one rather organize a buffet or prepare a menu card on which each guest could choose his favorite dish? How many meals should one offer? Should they be traditional or exotic? How do all guests, regardless of their personal preferences, feel sufficiently respected? How to answer these questions is very much related to what kind of atmosphere you want to have at the party. Furthermore cultural differences play a role, because there are more and more weddings, in which guests from different countries, cultures and religions participate. Last but not least, the trends are also important. Fashion influences all areas of our lives and weddings are no exception.
Wedding Menu – Modern or Traditional?
What should a modern wedding menu look like? The right question would be how it feels in the stomach. The look and offer of the wedding menu can be quite traditional. It can also appear exotic or quite modern, as well as something unusual on request. Something else is important with the new trends: The food should be filling enough, so that you can dance and talk for a long time.
At the same time, the food must not be too heavy in the stomach. The menu should respect the fact that more and more people have allergies to different products. A preliminary survey of your guests’ special wishes can give you a lot of security in this regard.
Meat dishes that are universal
The meat dishes offered at a wedding should be rather light. Chicken and other types of poultry are always the best choice due to their neutral taste and smell and because of their universal cultural character. Therefore, offering these in various modern forms has been a sustainable trend in wedding celebrations for many years.
Show enough respect for other cultures, vegans and vegetarians
There are still many people who only respect their own culture and their personal taste, and behave a little arrogantly towards those who are different. This procedure is not appropriate. If you have invited vegans, vegetarians, or people with a very different cultural background to your wedding celebration, then the food offer must not be any less for you than this for the others. If certain guests, due to a belief or religious restriction, can not or do not want to eat certain products, then their food should be kept sideways to those of the others. So you will not accidentally drop a piece of meat into the vegan food or use one and the same spoon for the vegetarian and meat side dishes.
Place the guests for dining
Guests with special food preferences should also have the opportunity to sit together at a table and enjoy their food there. Their place must be at a comfortable distance from the others, yet not seem isolated. That sounds a bit complicated. In practice, however, you will find that there are enough variants for it. For example, a table with a special wedding menu can be positioned in the middle and still be staffed only with people who get a special menu. While eating, they are all focused on their portions and do not directly see what the others eat at the next table.
