Choose the Cuisine
While it is always safe to revert to the classic gourmet items, your guests will have more fun if you choose a cuisine which the engaged couple are known to enjoy. If the engaged couple are famous for their taco obsession, then by all means, serve Mexican food like tacos, chili con carne, guacamole, and quesadillas. Of course, you have to make sure that the cuisine chosen will coordinate with the party’s theme and location.
Create a Fantastic Menu
After you’ve chosen a cuisine, finalize your party menu. Afterward, it is time you select a design for you menu. When designing the menu, make sure that you don’t overcrowd it with too much food choices. Remember, you are serving a party of people where most of the time your manpower, chefs, and supply of produce are limited as compared to a real restaurant. Also, make sure you prepare varying classes of food. No matter what cuisine you are serving, there has to be a variety (e.g., fish, poultry, beef, appetizers, soups, salads, and desserts). Lastly, don’t forget to make it easy for your guests to browse your menu by placing headings in huge fonts above each category of food.
After all your planning is done, make sure you send invitations two to three weeks before the party and don’t forget to match your invites to the rest of your party’s theme.
