People make so many extensive preparations for their wedding functions. Right from the fine decoration, to sprawling seating arrangement and amusing music, everything is planned and executed rigorously in order to make it a perfectly-organised event. But the fact remains, that it’s the food that’s noticed and admired the most by the numerous guests who attend your function. Frankly, if you consider the viewpoint of just any outsider guest, you’d know that this is the only thing they’re bothered about, neither the decoration, nor the attire and makeup people are decked up with – they’re all extra fringes for guests generally. The advantage with the wedding parties that occur during summer is that one can tuck in heartily.
It’s definitely the menu that matters the most. However, the presentation and layout of the same is as important as its quality, variety and taste. So, while planning the catering department/aspect of your wedding, these are some wonderful ideas you should keep in mind and pass on to your caterer:

Your guests would love to be served with some wonderful beverages of all varieties, hot and cold, alcoholic and non-alcoholic such as: tea, coffee, neembu-paani, soft drinks, wine, vodka, champagne, mocktails, fruit-juices etc. They’d love it even more if these drinks are handed to them in classy glasses, shots etc. and fancy bottles. They can admire the presentation, while sipping on their favorite drink.
