“…build a menu that reflects who you are. Think about your favourite holidays and memories…”
Food is at the centre of any great party, especially a wedding party. And choosing the right caterer and menu for your day can be complex for your Pembrokeshire Wedding. There are various questions to consider and endless possibilities. But it doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. With the right catering team, it can be a delicious and enjoyable process. Especially when you get to sample your menu beforehand.
The first thing you need to decide is if you want to provide a self-serve buffet or a full course meal. Or perhaps you like the idea of a cocktail hour and offering Canapés. Each of these options can be well executed. However, they each have their unique attributes.
It is worth noting that the foundation of any good wedding menu is variety. Not everyone has the same tastes. You want to be sure to have something for everyone. And this task can be much harder than you think. With endless variations and menu options, it can be simple to make additions. But it’s not always as easy to stay within your budget.
A buffet style menu will provide a wider selection of foods. However, a sit down 3 or 5-course meal will offer the opportunity to provide elegant service and to personalise place settings. The sit down meals may make some guests more comfortable as well. Others may prefer the more casual and social vibe of a buffet.
If you are working on a tighter budget, then you may want to simply offer hors d’oeuvres (appetisers or canapés) and a cocktail hour. Hors d’oeuvres translates to appetiser. However, the word “oeuvres” means a substantial body of work (or the lifework) of a writer, artist or composer. Serving hors d’oeuvres is like a chef presenting samples of his own work. And the catering team at Qube knows how to showcase their art with style and grace.
Once you know what type of service you want, you can begin to narrow down the details. Qube caterers will work with any budget to create a personalised and delicious menu. Our creative chef and culinary team know how to offer variety without sacrificing quality. And we offer a variety of indoor and outdoor options. From canapés to a full hog roast BBQ, you name it and we do our best to provide.
But a couple shouldn’t just worry about satisfying their guests. You should also build a menu that reflects who you are. Think about your favourite holidays and memories that include food. Maybe it’s a nostalgic smell or restaurant experience, or perhaps a mother’s dessert or favourite seaside oyster spot. Anything can be useful inspiration. And these are the ideas that will make your wedding menu memorable for you.
Weddings also tend to reflect the season in which they are held. And the food should always reflect that season as well. The Qube team uses locally sourced produce whenever possible and pride themselves on serving beautiful, fresh food. Whatever your seasonal tastes may be, there is always a way to incorporate them. Summer, winter, indoors or outdoors. Wedding season is all year long at Qube. And we love helping couples create menus for their special day!
