Once you've arranged your marquee hire, it's time to start thinking about other aspects of holding a wedding - such as what you plan to feed your guests! Here are some of the key trends for wedding breakfasts that you're likely to see this year.
Brunch, not breakfast
People are often tempted to have a daytime wedding because it can be cheaper than an evening affair. If this is your plan, why don't you serve your guests a delicious brunch instead of lunch as a nice surprise? Put pancakes, omelettes, waffles, Croques Monsieur and Madames, and Eggs Benedict on the menu. It's sure to be a winner!
A few years ago, cocktail stations were all the rage at weddings but these days, it's all about food, glorious food. Consider having a few food-related pop-up bars with chefs making food on the spot for guests, like a taco or oyster bar. A great way to start the day off!
While the traditional sit-down dinner will always be popular, not everyone is keen on the idea of silver service. Comfort food will be increasingly popular this year, so think about serving up sliders and macaroni cheese cupcakes to keep people's hunger at bay. You can still make the presentation look amazing and tie it in with the rest of your wedding decor, no matter what the food is.
Forget about the cupcake when it comes to dessert. They've more than had their day. In 2016 and beyond, we'll see more tarts and tortes instead of cakes for pudding at weddings, so see if there are any flavours that you and your other half can agree on now.
