Bridal waltzThe Wedding reception venue is unquestionably is the most important component of your wedding as at least 50 % of the wedding budget is spent on the reception. The venue for your reception should represent you both as a couple as it sets the tone and mood of the event. The choices for wedding reception venues are limitless and modern brides do not have to select a traditional reception venue. It can be a daytime soiree or an evening extravaganza.

One of the many choices modern brides have for the wedding reception venue is the traditional reception centre. A sit down formal reception can also be held in restaurants, hotels, museums, halls and many other locations. Accompanying traditional wedding reception is the 3- 5 course meal. The conveniences of traditional wedding reception venues are that most have an in house wedding coordinator to assist you with your event. The formalities such as the bridal waltz, speeches, cutting of the cake and the throwing of the banquet are already taken care of by the wedding reception. There is a formula which works and the experience of the venue will ensure that the event runs seamlessly and on time.

Wedding MenuOnce a traditional wedding sapad (meal) meant the typical rice, sambhar, rasam, kootu (vegetable), pickle and papad served on a green banana leaf. Remember, scrunching your fingers in the lightly, flavoured scrumptious rasam rice liberally mixed with dollops of ghee or slurping on the milky tasty vermicelli payasam?

But, the wedding food once a sacrosanct and a pivotal affair in Indian weddings (given our obsession for food!!), has gone through a dramatic make-over. 

Today, you can sample anything from pani-puris to ice-cream smeared dosas, colourful appalams scribbled with the names of the bridal couple, to healthy fruit juices and not-so-heavy sweets for the calorie conscious.

Wedding food menuIf your reception is going to be in a hotel, restaurant or other facility that provides food, you will need to select a meal to serve your guests. Most of these facilities will have a predetermined menu from which to select your meal. There are usually many different menus to choose from and a range of prices. If your reception is going to be in a facility that does not provide food, you will need to hire an outside caterer. The caterer will be responsible for preparing, cooking, decorating and serving the food. Again, there will be many different choices of food and a range of prices.

There are many options available as to the actual food service. Food can be served either buffet style or as a sit-down meal. It should be chosen according to the time of day, year, and formality of the wedding. Another thing to keep in mind is the ages of the guests. If there are a great many elderly individuals or children, a sit-down dinner is usually the better choice. Although there are many main dishes to choose from, chicken and beef are the most popular selections for a large event, followed closely by salmon. Ask your facility manager or caterer for their specialty. If you have a special type of food you would like to serve at your reception, select a facility or caterer who specializes in preparing it. One of the new trends is to go totally ethnic, focusing on the cuisine from a particular region or country. Many catering services even have the servers dress in the traditional garb of that country.

BuffetA menu is chosen for your guests. The food is sure to satisfy each palate. How should you serve the food to your guests? It may depend on the mood you want at your reception and the expense of the technique. Some reception venues may already have a way of doing this but others may leave it completely up to the bride and groom.

Buffet

Some prefer a buffet style meal while others prefer a sit down meal. Buffet style is usually less expensive than a sit down meal. A bride and groom may decide that they would like to serve their guests a full meal. Many family members and friends may have traveled to come to this event. You may consider it disappointing for them not to get a full meal before leaving. Buffet style is much more relaxing and creative. Guests can get food at the announced time, choosing what they want from what they see.

Wedding MenuOne cannot think of a wedding without a wedding feast. That is one concept that the human community agrees upon unanimously. In fact in my experience I have seen that a number of times, one of the reasons why weddings are remembered is because of the mouthwatering and finger licking food that was served.

This in itself is proof of the fact that planning the wedding menu successfully requires a lot of expertise. The whole proposition becomes even more challenging when one has to plan a great menu within the constraints of a “not so generous” budget.

One of the first decisions one needs to take is where is the wedding going to be held? This is because the choice of venue has great impact on the freedom that you will have in deciding the menu. In case your reception is going to be held in a hotel, restaurant or a kalyana mandapam that provides food, you will need to select a meal to serve your guests from the set menus that are available.
