It’s important to decide what type of ‘feel’ you want. If you are having a black tie wedding then you might prefer an elegant multi-course plated meal. If you want a casual feeling, a bevy of tasty passed and stationary appetizers might be best. Decide how casual or formal you want your wedding to feel at the beginning and develop your food and venue choices from there.

what do *you* like?

The most important thing when planning your wedding meal is having food you like! You’re throwing a party to celebrate — think about how you like to celebrate first and foremost. Do you love chocolate? Then have chocolate! Do you love seafood? Then have seafood! Do you love a rich scalloped potato? You see where we’re going here, right?

make it personal.

The things you’ll remember especially fondly about your wedding are the moments that were personal, that were about your family, friends and loved ones. So if there’s a special family recipe you love or a cake decoration that has meaning for you and your fiancé, be sure to ask for it.
