Spice Up Your Wedding Menu!!

Category: Posted in Wedding Foods & Beverages | Published on

 

Wedding decor and wedding food are probably the most important elements of wedding planning.Both of these have to complement each other. While most wedding decorators and caterers have pre-set packages to choose from, we don't think it is a great way to choose the decor and the Wedding Menu for your big day!

First step is to choose your theme and color palette. And next, start moving on and planning your decor and food; which fits with your chosen theme and color palette. While the other things are pretty much taken care of, one thing we have noticed as wedding planners is that the buffet decor is something most people overlook. This is very important. You may serve great food but, the presentation is equally important! Here are some tips which may be useful while planning your buffet setup.

The basic setup at any buffet will remain the same, but adding attractive elements will enhance the look. Instead of serving food in traditional chafing dishes, you could opt for platters of various shapes placed on different levels to create layers. This sets a whole different mood. According to your theme you can choose whether you want to go with ceramic or glassware.

Fruits and vegetables can be used along with flowers and some decorative elements to make attractive center pieces instead of just flowers.

For a more rustic feel, preserves can be directly served from jars, which are usually used for storing. Also instead of placing all food in platters or serving dishes, you could have bite sized portions of food served in small individual dishes or small shot glasses depending on the nature of food being served.

Adding candles to your wedding decor will give it a more relaxed look, but we would not recommend it. Safety becomes a big issue with kids around and don't forget, sometimes the fragrance of the candle may overpower the food.Another thing you can play with is lighting though we would suggest very subtle mood lighting.

For special counters like cheese you can display a variety of exotic cheeses along with nuts, crackers, wine and grapes as these go perfectly with cheese. You could also have a special area for wine connoisseurs to enjoy cheese and wine  a wine bar maybe?

And of course, the always popular live stations these will make your buffet interactive and fun. This way food can be customized for your guests.

We hope these tips come in handy for you to spice up your buffet decor. Let us know your tips and ideas.

Beat the Heat on your Wedding Day!!!

Category: Posted in Summer Wedding | Published on

 

Clear blue skies, radiant sunshine and the prevailing excitement are what make summer weddings so popular among brides. However the scorching mercury levels and sweltering heat can wreak havoc with the planning and execution of a perfect wedding, leaving any bride restless and uncertain and make the guests cranky. Here are our  Some top tips, which will help you make your summer wedding the coolest day for you and your guests!

Have your wedding ceremony by a pool, lake, sea or any water body to beat the heat on your wedding day. Even better have a pool party where your guests can cool themselves and enjoy your company in a post wedding party.

Try keeping your wedding ceremony post sunset when it is cooler rather than mid afternoon or morning. Keeping the ceremony short will also work in your favor.

Dressing up in heavy saris and formal suits can be very uncomfortable in this heat. A casual dress code will be appreciated by your guests.

The colors and fabrics that you use in the decor can go a long way in influencing the mood of your guests. Incorporate a lot of lightweight and breezy fabrics in bright summer colors like yellow, green, pink, blue etc. Tropical and beachy shades can also work for summer weddings.

For outdoor venues, provide your guests with things that will protect them against the sun. Scatter some fans, parasols, straw hats and sunscreens around the venue for your guests to use. You can also print your program booklets on hand fans, which your guests can later use.

In case your venue does not offer any kind of cover for your guests to escape from the sun, think about setting up temporary tents, umbrellas or any kind of shade for your guests to cool off under.

Take care of your guests and provide them with sufficient fluids to stay hydrated. Stock your bar or set up rustic counters for refreshing lemonades, ice tea, jaljeera or even aam panna. Interesting flavored popsicles, a traditional gola cart or even an ice-cream or a yogurt bar will be an instant hit among your guests.

Oily and heavy food will make the heat even more oppressive and should be completely avoided. Incorporate lot of fresh fruits, salads and veggies, fruit pies and some sorbet. Keep the food presentation as colorful as possible.

Edible icy favors are the best choice for summer weddings. Mini ice-cream cones, jars of ice cream sandwich, jars of yummy sorbet, jams or the classic Indian aam ras or lassi are perfect options for your summer wedding favors.
