Planning your wedding breakfast

Formal, informal, indoors or outside?

Summer gives the best choice when it comes to deciding what is best for the wedding feast.

A formal breakfast can be held at any time of year – but the sunshine gives the option of an outdoor buffet or even a barbeque.

Sit down meals are one of the easiest to organise, with names allocated to places on a seating plan so that couples can be kept together and people who don’t know anyone else put into the sort of company the bride and groom feel they would enjoy.

Portion sizes and dietary requirements can be easily controlled, making for a stress free occasion.

However the downside is that this is likely to be the most expensive option as a three course meal, along with coffee, cake, Champagne and wine is also likely to be on the menu.

There is also the necessity of paying for the right number of waiting staff – and if it is a large reception they need to be of a number to ensure that guests are not kept waiting or served cold dishes.

A buffet is ideal when it comes to feeding a large number of guests who are at liberty to choose their dishes and how much they want. But it also involves people queuing for food, which can lead to a lack of organisation.

The barbeque option is quite an unusual one, but increasing in popularity.

It is great if the wedding party are working to a budget and gives the guests ample opportunity to mingle informally.

But it is very dependant on the weather – a grey and cold day or rain will make the occasion more likely one to forget than cherish.

Also it can be awkward to accommodate vegetarian guests with a suitable meal.

Lastly a quirky catering option is always a good talking point.

This could be anything from an ice cream van to a hot-dog stall – or maybe a chocolate fountain or mobile bar.
