Now it's time to find out what food will be served on the big day. Bob Johnson of West Michigan Caterer offers some appetizers to the bride and groom to get started, plus some tips that every couple should consider when planning a wedding menu.
1) Make sure that your menu takes on both of your personalities.
2) Share your like, dislikes, food allergies or special dietary needs.
3) Choose your type of meal. A buffet meal allows for people to pick and choose what they like to eat and and eat as much as they like with served salads and a little more relaxed atmosphere. A plated meal is more formal and traditional and is sometimes preferred for a more upscale feel. Stations are becoming more popular as they allow for more variety of menu as well as causing guests more interaction than the other options.
