Planning Your Reception / Food & Catering

The type of cuisine you serve for your wedding is influenced by many factors, including: your cultural heritage, the formality of the event, the season and finally, the time of day that your wedding will be held. Once all of these variables are confirmed, you can begin the delightful task of working with your venue, and/or caterer, to select suitable and spectacular dishes.

Then, you will want to consider the drinks you will serve to accompany each fabulous course: red and white wine, a selection of boutique beers, signature cocktails, spirits, liqueurs, and, of course, champagne!
