Weddings are becoming a more relaxed affair and in following the ‘wedding breakfast’ is also becoming less informal.  Many weddings do still have the traditional large wedding breakfast, but what are todays modern bride and groom now turning to eat.

From a formal 6 course meal to a buffet or BBQ style wedding, we all have a preference of what we want on our wedding day.  Sausage and Mash is a great choice and is a definite favourite on the list of choices for Ambience HQ.  We would then have strawberries, ice cream and chocolate sauce for afters. Very tasty and fits the style of a relaxed wedding atmosphere.

The catering options do not have to be expensive choices for your guests and the later you choose to marry the less time you will need to feed everyone and this is where a buffet or BBQ would benefit a later wedding time.

Your wedding day is about making your day a memorable day for you both and adding your own personal touches that you want to for your day. From finely chosen wedding décor to choosing the food that you want is all very important. Have you thought about where you first met your husband or wife to be, did you eat, can you remember what you both ate and could that be incorporated into your menu or it could just be food as simple as good old British fish and chips.  If you have always fancied Canapés why not have some specially prepared versions of your own ideas to give your guests whilst your photographs are being taken.  This would be a great and probably welcome personal touch, even giving the children ice creams if it’s a summers day.  Maybe you could put your food choices for the men via your husband to be and the lady’s choice courtesy of you the bride.

An emerging trend is having food vans or food stations, for instance actual ice cream vans at your venue, and if your wedding theme is vintage why not look for a vintage ice cream van or even a bike version.  There are now more and more suppliers in many areas that are starting to offer this kind of vintage décor and Ambience do work alongside a selection of suppliers that will be able to supply this kind of decor.  Our stylists have many beautiful ideas for styling wedding venues and we do get asked to theme many styles, from Willy Wonka to Fairy Tale weddings and more.

If you have something in mind and need our help please do get in touch today and we will help make your day the perfect day to remember.
