Reception Foods Dos and Don'ts?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

So I'm about to start the process of researching caterers but I think having some idea of what kind of food we would like served at the reception would help a lot with not only where to start looking for caterers but who to select in the end. Which leads me to my question: do you have any suggestions for what works well or works out horribly for reception foods?
My fiance' and I have discussed this some and we're unsure if we should just do a smattering of foods that we both like or if we should pick one cuisine style. So far we just know that we would like to have equal vegetarian and non-vegetarian options as our guests will be from both types of diets (we are also checking to see if we have anyone attending that is vegan or has food allergies).
Also is it a good idea to have the food coincide with colors/themes? We don't have a specific theme, but don't really know if we should work in the colors somehow (for example if blue is one of our colors have a dish that has blueberries in it, or if a color is purple have plums or eggplants in dishes, etc).
Should we consider if a food is too "sloppy" to serve/eat?
Thank you in advance everyone! I look forward to hearing your experiences and opinions!

Im not sure about incorporating the colour scheme in the food, maybe more so for the desserts than the actual food?

I think certain types of cuisine can be mixed together and some dont go as well. Personally for example I wouldnt have Chinese and Mexican food toghether. But I wouldnt have a problem with for example having Greek food (lots of Vegetarian options) with American Style BBQ.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
