Many of the ideas and themes we used in our wedding buffet were ones that we have used for our own weddings and events. Our theme was “Food is Love” and our ceremony was also based on this theme.
You can get married without a specific theme, but you can’t get married without an amazing event. So I guess we’ll start with a few words from the wedding that we used as inspiration. And this is just the beginning of our wedding inspiration. I’ll be sure to link to some of the other food-inspired weddings we’ve already done when I have time.
We used the word “love” throughout our wedding ceremony, especially in the ceremony itself. In the ceremony we said that food was our love, and the food we had to create was food is love. We also made a statement in the vows that food is love and that the food we created was also food is love. So that is a theme we used throughout our entire wedding, and it is one where we did not use “food” in our vows.
While the food we created was delicious, I think we did well with the food we chose to serve. We used a buffet style format, and our menu was very varied and delicious. I loved the appetizer of the day, the salmon, with the caviar and the tarragon sauce. I really loved the lobster and the roasted duck. Then came dessert and we served chocolate fudge cake and red velvet cake, which I thought was very delicious.
There were many reasons for us to choose the buffet. First off, it allowed us to make the event look as rustic as possible. The buffet is meant to look like a campfire, and our wedding was a campfire. We did not use a table or a buffet, so that we could make the entire party seem more rustic.
The buffet was also meant to give the guests a chance to have fun with other foods that they enjoy. I love the idea of having a campfire and having to ask for help with cooking things and having to work for the favor of the cook. When you have a party that is all about cooking, it makes the party all the more fun. When you have a party that is all about making a home delicious, it makes the party all the more fun.
It’s not the most romantic of ideas, but there’s the small matter of the fact that you want to make a party. You want to have fun. So when we’re talking about a buffet table, you’re going to want it to be as rustic as possible. A buffet is a food truck, so we can’t really use an outdoor table or a picnic table, nor can we use a table that is more than a few inches too high for the buffet.
Of course we did use an outdoor table, but we also threw a little salad bar, and then there were all the little trays that were set to go on a little side table. It was fun to put together, but we wanted to create this very specific look that we had in mind before we even started. It’s not that you want to have too many trays, it’s that you want to create a look of comfort and convenience.
We wanted to create a feeling of being at home, where you can go to the bathroom without having to use the sink, you feel like someone is just sitting next to you. You want to create a feeling that we have the restaurant’s name, so there will be no confusion as to who’s paying, and we wanted to make sure that our food is as fresh as possible, so there will not be anything that will go bad.
