Your Colorado wedding menu is of absolute importance – because, as many wedding specialists acknowledge, it truly is one of the most important elements for wedding guests. Therefore, it is really important to be able to plan your wedding food properly and make sure it suits you, your wedding, and your wedding guests.

What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind about this? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

· Serving a buffet may not be that great of an idea. It may seem fun and it may feel like a good option if you want to make sure everyone can select the foods they want to eat – but leaving that aside, there are plenty of downfalls to it. For instance, it can be really messy, it can disrupt the day-of schedule (with people eating at different times, etc.), and it can be actually pretty upsetting for some guests to stand in line for their foods (e.g. think of your grandparents).

· Alternatively, you could serve a family-style dinner. This means you would place all the entrees and sides in the middle of the table and encourage guests to pass them around. This is wonderful not just because it creates a very comfy vibe, but it can also be a great ice breaker for tables where guests may not know each other that well. Plus, it’s less stiff than a plated dinner, and more affordable than plated service.

· Of course, you may also think buffet meals are less expensive than other options – but again, that is not necessarily true. In many cases, couples planning buffet meals end up spending a lot more on the food. This happens for a lot of reasons, including the fact that people are more tempted to eat more when they’re presented with a myriad of options, each of which is plentiful.

· If you are looking for other ways to save money on your wedding food, you could ask your caterer about food station service. This can offer a bit more fun than the traditional buffet.
