Food and Drink
Food and drink are two of the most important elements of the day. There are generally three options for the food at the reception: canapés only, a buffet, or a sit-down lunch or dinner. These vary in price and style.
At some hired venues and for marquee weddings, a catering company will need to be hired and alcohol sourced. At other venues, such as hotels, food and drink facilities are obviously provided.
The couple will usually have a wedding cake professionally made. While traditional cakes are still popular, many couples opt for something more visually interesting or that can be served for pudding.
