Wedding | Reception Food Alternatives

Being hungry at a wedding is the worst. Like where do you get food from? How long are you going to have to wait until they decide to feed you? You’re so hungry you could actually eat your own foot!!

Wedding’s are long. For the Bride & Groom and your guests, so it’s imperative you and your guests have plenty of food and drink to sustain the momentum and ensure the wedding is a success. Of course, you can always go over the top, offer too much food, and create more waste than you can care to imagine.
So what do you do? Well, there’s plenty of individual and different alternatives you can offer your guests compared to the usual full on spread of a finger buffet.

Burger Van / Fish & Chips 
Or better known as street food! So alternative, less mess and the food no-one can resist when offered. Some vendors literally have a van, pull up, offer out food and pull away. Quick, easy and suitable for anyone! A real alternative for your evening reception food!

Ice Cream Bike 
For a summer wedding, this can be a lifesaver as well as a cute and quirky extra for guests. Choose your own flavours, and have as many as you like. It’s a great alternative if you expect it to be too hot, and guests won’t fancy too much! Really picturesque when served from a bike!

Pizza Oven 
Similar to the fish and chips, burger, street food idea. What’s better here is you can have an array of pizzas, variant on toppings and guests can pick and choose from a buffet of pizza! What more could you want as a guest or Bride & Groom? If you have to do a buffet, this is the best kind to have!

Sweet Bar 
It’s the latest FAD, to offer guests a bar of sweets including anything from milk bottles to strawberry laces. It can even double up as a great wedding favour with personalised sweetie bags and stickers.

Desert Table 
Its a table, full of the most delicious and moreish cakes and deserts you can think of. It’s pretty much a buffet fit for any sweet tooth and guaranteed to entice all your guests to indulge. It’s a nifty alternative if you’re not wanting to offer your guests too much!

A 6 tiered Cheese Cake. And by cheese cake, I mean several cuts of cheese on top of each other, ready for guests to help themselves and indulge in cheese, crackers, bread and a range of sauces and chutney. Any cheese lover, like me, will fully appreciate how fantastic this is and enjoyable for guests. Want to be alternative and offer something different, a cheese cake / board is a fantastic way to go!
