FOOD STATIONSAlternative Food Options

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 this into your food choices.


Perhaps you are having a later wedding ceremony or are looking for that alternative wedding food to the evening buffet.  Why not have cheese and wine? Gone are the days of the 80’s parties with a piece of cheddar and a vinegar tasting bottle of red – there is such a selection of both available nowadays.  You could contact a local wine merchant for recommendations – And you could have a cheese “cake” as an alternative to your wedding cake.


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 are having a small wedding and want a formal sit-down meal.


The perfect solution if 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 alternative wedding food you choose, always remember to make it about you both as a couple.
