I’m going to give you some wedding food alternatives that you may want to think about for your special day.


Are you fed up with trying to come up with a menu to please all your fussy guests? Why not have different buffet stations around your reception venue? Perhaps if you both have a passion for travel you could incorporate food from various Countries you have been to.


Perhaps you’re having a later wedding ceremony or are looking for that alternative to the evening buffet.  Why not have a Ploughman’s Buffet? A good mix of cheeses with a selection of pickles and crackers and pork pies.

You could contact a local wine merchant for recommendations for red wine to go with it – And you could have a cheese “cake” or even a “Pork Pie” Wedding Cake to be different.

Perfect for a vintage themed wedding – think about tea served in vintage china cup and saucers and a selection of sandwiches and cakes served on a traditional vintage cake stand.  A perfect alternative wedding food choice if you’re having a small wedding.


The perfect solution of you’re having a marquee wedding, brilliant for a sunny day and a great way to get your Guests mingling with each other.  They are also a great alternative wedding food if you are on a tight budget.

(Remember to cater for any vegetarians though)


Nobody knows how to have an enjoyable dining experience more than the Spanish.  Think about a mixture of tapas dishes on each table for your Guests to help themselves, or even a giant paella served to your guests.

Whatever wedding food choice you choose, always remember to make it about you both as a couple and keep it personal.
