Food For Thought
The sky’s the limit with the high quality of culinary talent we have in the Hampton Roads area. When it comes to choosing a cuisine or theme for your wedding or wedding-related event, many catering chefs have areas of culinary expertise that lend themselves naturally to fabulous dining experiences.
Time Of Day
The time of day and style of your wedding truly dictates what to serve and how. Dinner is appropriate when the reception begins between 6 and 9:30 p.m. Morning and day alternatives are: breakfast (9-11 a.m.) brunch (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.) lunch (12:30 – 3:30 p.pm) and tea (3 – 5 p.m.) Later in the day choices are cocktails (5 – 7 p.m.) and dessert (9 – 10:30 p.m. Be sure to clue guests in to the food they can expect. A simple line like “dessert reception immediately to follow” on the invitation will preclude any food related mysteries.
Wedding Meals On Wheels
The food truck of yesteryear has made a fierce comeback! A modern element to today’s wedding cocktail hour and receptions; long live the artistry and visionary cuisine of “street meat.” A modern twist to today’s wedding fairytale, food trucks are on point with today’s eclectic design trend. It is proper for a food truck to only be present during the cocktail hour or to bring a favorite late night snack. Do not, however, underestimate the ability for a food truck to cater your entire event. Just be certain to inquire how many guests the truck can accommodate and how long it will take them to serve all of your guests with this “modern” buffet line.
