Questions to ask about your reception menu

Planning a New Mexico wedding is frequently associated with a long list of questions. The wedding etiquette, the trends, the colors – everything can be a big question mark for a couple trying to pull off the perfect Big Day, and given the importance of the event, it is more than understandable that things are this way.

What are some of the most popular wedding menu questions couples ask caterers? We have some tips for you – read on to find out more.

·       Is it absolutely necessary to serve food during the cocktail hour? Our advice is to serve something with all those drinks. Not only does the cocktail hour set the tone for the bigger party, but do you really want guests to drink cocktails on an empty stomach? Soup shooters, hors d’oeuvres, mini-burgers – you name it, the possibilities are endless and they don’t have to cost a fortune.

·       Is it absolutely necessary to serve gluten and lactose-free dishes? If you have the time and the budget to do this, yes, totally. Still, if you want to keep it simple, serve at least a vegetarian option and make sure gluten and lactose-intolerant guests can sort out the foods they cannot eat (e.g. serve vegetarian hors d’oeuvres without bread or cheese, this will keep everyone happy).

·       What are the foods NOT allowed at weddings? These days, anything goes, from street food trucks to high-end Michelin-starred dinners. Still, it would probably be better for everyone to avoid very messy foods, like crabs for example. Remember, people are dressing up for the occasion and the last thing they want are lobster sauce stains on their fancy clothes.
