Go for a daytime reception.
Did you know that night time wedding receptions cost about twice or even thrice as much as a daytime one? The food options in the menu are meant for dinner and that is usually something that is pricey and something that you should try to go ahead and keep in consideration all the time. Dinner usually entails steaks and expensive seafood options such as lobster tails and salmon or halibut and so on and so forth. Things like this can add up pretty soon and you don’t want to end up realizing a little too late that you have already gone way over your proposed budget for the wedding.
Consider a daytime reception instead.
Lunches or brunches are great options. You can even opt for a morning wedding and serve out some breakfast for your menu. That will be even cheaper but it all depends on you if you are willing to go down that route when it all comes down to it. It isn’t something unheard of and it is certainly something well worth looking into especially if it means that you get to save a lot of money in the process. By saving a few bucks here and there, you will end up with more money to spend on other services such as for your wedding photographer Hertfordshire among other things.
Go for food combinations.
A full course meal can turn out to be really expensive while at the same time, it may prove to be something that you should be wary about especially if finances are tight and if you are trying to work on some sort of variation. Anything is possible and for as long as you are creative with what you are trying to achieve, you are bound to have something truly awesome without breaking the bank. Talk to your caterers about the possibility of having food combinations for the wedding. Don’t stick to the traditional and usual menus. Explore into the things that you would want to eat. That really is the best way to put it. Everyone is a food expert in his own right. At the end of the day, this is your wedding and you really do get to call the shots when it comes to the menu. Make sure as well that the setup is something that your wedding photographer Hertfordshire will get to love. Great presentation can turn out to make all of the difference in the world so get this figured out.
Sit down dinners can be expensive.
They really can be so if you nail your options down to something like this, you really are limiting yourself and what you can do for the menu of your wedding day reception. Try to ask around if you can find a caterer willing to set up food stations for you instead. This way, your guests have the freedom to actually pick the food that they like the most. They don’t have to be pressured into a per plate kind of deal and you wouldn’t have to suffer paying the high prices that these sit down dinners entail while you are at it. It gives you a buffet type of feel without the costs that come along with it. You get to feed your wedding photographer Hertfordshire as well as your other wedding vendors as well.
