Why Street Food and Weddings are a match made in heaven!
Whether you’re having a traditional church ceremony or something a bit more unconventional, street food could be the unexpected star of your big day…
What’s a wedding without mountains and mountains of food? Not much of a wedding at all in our book. Sending your guests to bed hungry is a sure-fire way to get folk talking for all the wrong reasons.
But what you serve up to your guests is a big – nay, colossal – decision to make. According to stats jockeys at wedding website Bridebook, in 2018 the average spend on food for a wedding came in at £5,862. It’s little wonder then, that many brides and grooms to be spend a huge amount of time traversing the country checking out the options and sampling the wares of venues and roaming caterers for hire.
But what if there was an alternative to the traditional fusty five-course? One which didn’t require hours of agonising table planning and having to work around Aunties Brenda and Pauline’s long-simmering and unresolved beef, or the potential awkwardness of putting those two uni mates whose relationship ended messily with their new partners? An option which was more suited to mingling and conversation, and importantly, potentially cheaper too?
Enter street food for weddings. Whether you’re serving it as an alternative to your sit-down meal or as delicious chaser to the day’s events – it’s an ideal option for something to soak up to booze and provide vital sustenance after the exertions of the evening disco – street food can be the vital x-factor which elevates your days from ‘great’ to ‘absolutely fantastic’. And, all things considered, it’s infinitely more Instagrammable than shoulder of lamb with seasonal mixed veg and gravy.
