Planning a Wedding can be supremely daunting. The idea of gathering 200 of your “nearest and dearest” together for your wedding celebrations might make your head spin. A recent trend that has gained widespread popularity is to have all the fixings of a wedding, but on a modest level. We’re talking 10 to a maximum of 50 guests along with the things that will make your wedding feel personal. With the pandemic causing the entire world to come to a standstill, one of the only industries that flourished during this time was the wedding industry. Weddings were attended by people around the globe sitting comfortably on their couches in their finest attire. This was possible only due to the video streaming platforms. And, quite evidently, this idea was welcomed with open arms. Everything right from bridal lehenga shopping to finding wedding vendors such as caterers or photographers. The service vendors and the families of the couples adapted extremely well to this digitisation and have pulled off these intimate weddings seamlessly.
Curated food menus:
There’s nothing quite like the food served at a wedding or a party. And, a smaller guest list means that one can actually choose what they truly wish to serve for their wedding rather than considering what a majority of their wedding guests would prefer to consume with respect to the dietary restrictions or what would please them.
The Wedding Food Menu can include dishes that the couple grew up eating or recipes that are close to the families’ hearts. Serve a dish that’s a secret, heirloom recipe that was passed on through the ages. Add a personal touch to your wedding menu by asking your grandmother or a close relative to cook something that nobody else can make the delicacy the way they make it. Now, that’d be something all your wedding guests would remember for a long time.
Go the Desi way:
Or, indulge in an extensive menu with dishes that will make your wedding guests truly happy. Regionally inspired menus with multiple courses and dishes such as an Almond and Chicken Shorba, Paneer Tikka, Galouti or Sheek kebabs, Butter Chicken, Dal Makhani, saffron rice and assorted Indian breads to a complex Hyderabadi biryani with Malai Chicken and rest of the trimmings. Or, even a plethora of vegetarian and non vegetarian tandoori starters such as Aloo Tikki, Reshmi Kebab, Afghani Murgh, and Roasted Seasonal Vegetables, amongst others.
Impress your wedding guests with a traditional South Indian inspired Kerala fare or an elaborate Andhra ‘meals’ might hit the sweet spot. These dishes are eaten on a large banana leaf with flavours ranging from sweet to savory, and sour to bitter. The menu will be exhaustive and your guests are sure to go into a food coma.
Dare to be different:
If you wish to do something unique, you can also go in for cheese boards and pair them with some fabulous wines or put together a picking plate with short eats or finger food such as sushi, tacos, canapés, a house salad, charcuterie, some fancy bread bites of different flavors, miniature cakes, and truffles to name a few. Don’t forget to stock up the bar with your favourite spirits!
