Add flavour to you wedding day, yes in a very literal way, with a mouthwatering menu and designer drinks. Here are some of our tips for keeping things deliciously interesting.
Let them eat cake
Now, we wouldn’t necessarily agree with most of what Marie Antoinette uttered, but when it comes to eating cake, who are we to argue with royal blood? Cutting the wedding cake is an old tradition that still lives on in modern day weddings. Nowadays taking on shape in form of naked cakes, stacked profiteroles or even tiered cakes made up of cheese. We suspect to be seeing more semi-covered cakes in 2017, as well as layers of different flavour cakes. On the dessert menu, deconstructed sweet treats will feature as well as dessert walls covered in donuts, cake pops and bite-size confectioneries.

This is a foodie trend that will continue in the year to come. There is something so inviting and festive about grabbing a small gourmet bite from a passing-by platter. This option means that couples don’t have to decide on only a single starter, but can choose a variety of delicious small eats that will do the rounds. Another good way to give guests a tasting and gathering experience is with food stations stacked with canapés.

Whether you’ve taken to the gin trend or prefer a locally made craft beer or cider, having an array of crafty drinks at your wedding is right on trend. This is also a great way to add a personal touch to your special day, choosing drinks that you enjoy as couple. This trend is all about giving guests an authentic experience, so think DIY gin stations or buckets filled with a selection of craft beers. Also keep non-alcoholic options in mind – sparkling water with mint and blueberries or lemon and rosemary are refreshing options.
