Don’t Forget about These Wedding Menu Tips

Your wedding menu needs to be absolutely delicious. It needs to look amazing. It needs to suit you and your type of wedding. But probably more than you even realize it, it needs to be really well-planned – and yes, this includes a fair share of etiquette rules as well.

What are the essential wedding menu tips all couples should remember when planning their Big Day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Yes, you definitely need to serve food during the cocktail hour. It may seem that it’s just an hour, but given that alcohol will be served, you should at least make sure you serve snacks or hors d’oeuvres. Not only will this set the mood for the big party, but it will also help you and your wedding party to keep things under control.


  • Include a vegetarian menu. It may seem like it’s a lot of hassle, but chances are there will be at least a couple of guests who will not eat meat – so there should be an option for them too. Ideally, this option should also be gluten and lactose-free (because this way you will be able to cater to all of your guests’ dietary needs). As for allergens, you might want to either signal them or avoid them altogether – you don’t want that kind of accidents at your wedding.


  • DO serve a late-night snack. Pizza, cookies and milk, sandwiches, a street food cart – the list of ideas is literally endless. Regardless of what you choose, your guests will definitely love it – and it will definitely keep them wide awake and dancing all night long.
