Disc Jockeys Now Reviews Wedding budget and meal option
This week, Ginette answers the question of a couple who would like to marry but has a small budget and would have several options to decide the meal of the ceremony.
Ginette Hello, my boyfriend and I celebrated our four years together and we decided to have a wedding in July... Yes, Disc Jockeys Now Reviews Facebook Page in 3 months! Do you think this is impossible? Everything will be determined on Friday. J 'have the time... and if I do not have a date it will be next year. I do not know how to work... I do not have a big budget since we are studying. We have many 'guests. Should we take a room that is also catered or is it better to take a room and catering apart? Please answer me.
I hope you are able to draw up a guest list that allows you to organize the reception that best suits your needs and your budget!
The amount of guests you can now direct you to the best venue of the party and possibly the ceremony.
Ceremony and Reception
If you get married in church, Disc Jockeys Now Reviews Facebook Page try as far as possible to find a place for the reception in the immediate vicinity. Any reason is good: practical, ecological aspect (car transport for all guests), time (the cocktail begins shortly after the end of the ceremony), ease of organization... This also applies if you say your vows on the spot (with a wedding officiant). Then there is very little down time for guests: you can make a first toast with them right after the ceremony, you slip away for a few minutes to take pictures during the cocktail and then return for the meal itself.
Here, everything is possible and we may not be limited to traditional wedding banquet: sit-down meal usually five services, served at table.
It's about finding a place (maybe off the beaten track) and date (Friday or Sunday night are often available even at the last minute and costs are often much lower than those charged on Saturday night....)
Regarding the caterer, it is certain that if you choose a room that offers a meal, it is more advantageous to take this package with the room (anyway, you do not have a choice). Regarding the rooms that do not serve food (such as community halls, for example) you have to think the caterer, but also to all rentals (tables, chairs, table linen, crockery, cutlery, glasses... )
Some caterers offer a turnkey service that includes everything you need. Disc Jockeys Now Reviews Facebook Page It will be easier for you to budget per person which will include everything. The key is to determine the number of guests and multiply by the cost per person. You will have all the answers!
The dining options are many
The cocktail party
Appetizers are served on a tray and run all night. It is a formula that allows a lot of variety and a certain sophistication. According dishes chosen, it will be possible to save on vacation and service personnel.
Again, set a budget per person, choose the menu with the caterer. This form allows a user-friendly reception (guests are not seated at the same table all evening, they move freely and meetings multiply). It is good to provide cozy corners where they can take a break and high tables (cocktail type) to deposit their glasses.
They are very fashionable in recent years. This meal plan that originated in Spain offers a variety of small portions (grilled vegetables, seafood, minisalades, minisoupes served in a shot glass, glasses...).
Everything is possible: it is to make small portions of various foods chosen for our tastes, the theme of the wedding, the season, the budget. This type of food can be eaten in the manner of cocktail party. We adapt the container and the presentation to selected dishes: tapas small plates, small bowls, glasses... all can be served on a tray or in a buffet.
The user-friendly format par excellence, economic and very easy. Disc Jockeys Now Reviews Facebook Page Sometimes we tend to eliminate him from office for a marriage thinking that it's not smart enough. Still, tasty food, well presented and can be varied look great on a long table! And guests are always welcome to choose their favorite dishes.
Make sure that the food is impeccable freshness, especially in summer and avoid letting them hang without refrigeration after the recommended time (we lost count of the food poisoning case when it's hot!) Also make sure you have the personnel to replace, clean, refreshing dishes. A buffet should look good and appetizing all night or as long as the food is available. Otherwise, the food is to be stored.
They can complete a buffet, decorate a cocktail reception, a tapas menu and even a traditional meal served at the table! It can be a grill (even a simple BBQ can do the trick), a candy bar, a fruit bar, a stove where all kinds of custom dishes are prepared (pasta with different sauces, stir-fried vegetables, meat, fish, seafood of different flavors: Japanese, Thai, séchuanais...), an ice bar, sorbets or sundays (also popular with adults and children), a bar with soft drinks or iced teas with different flavors... the possibilities are endless! Be creative and you rejoice your guests with a unique dining, personalized, interactive and festive!
I even had the pleasure of helping a young couple of students to organize their wedding in a cabin at the Bosse wedding. Disc Jockeys Now Reviews Facebook Page They had ordered a simple barbecue (with oven grill and cooking on site), which was accompanied by several dishes by all members of the family in an authentic formula potluck or pot-luck (in English)!
I made sure of consistency of service by having them prepare the food in serving dishes and pretty homogeneous (painted white and royal blue motifs by married themselves!) I do not want the food to be served in disparate or tupperware containers guy! I can tell you that it was one of the most joyous and festive weddings that I have had the chance to attend!
When choosing the type of food you serve at your wedding, consider your tastes, what makes you happy and do not limit yourself! Anything is possible, even reasonable or reduced budget!
My next column will affect other aspects of the preparation of marriage according to the budget: decor, flowers, married and held the procession...
See you soon!
