What & where will be your wedding feast?

Veronica, on January 13, 2020 at 22:28 Posted in Wedding reception

Hello Wedding Wire people!

When FH and I started talking about our dream wedding, it became quickly apparent that having the most delicious food would have to be a major party of the day! We even called our wedding "The Big Fancy Dinner" for the longest time. So we knew that having a venue that served up a great feast would be a major requirement. We also knew that we wanted to do a multi course plated dinner. So we chose a local farm to table restaurant, Bow Valley Ranche to host our reception (and ceremony too!).

I want to hear all about the eats at your wedding! Will it be a dinner? Plated? Buffet? Cocktail hour style? Food trucks? Did food influence your choice in venue?

Give me all the details!

    We are doing plated. Technically we’re doing a bit of everything lol. So we’ll have hors d’uerves served after ceremony.


    Then we have antipasto, dual pasta, dual entree, dessert... as plated. Plus a plate of seafood for each table. Then we’re doing wedding cake... plus a late night station.... we also have an open bar so we’re probably going to do a bunch of carbs for late night station lol. Everyone that’s gone to weddings says that after they’re plastered there’s nothing better than some carbs to continue munching on.

    Were doing buffet style with many food choices. we have a lot of vegetarians, people who dont eat beef or pork or both so its just easier buffet style lol

    I'm actually so excited for our food! We did our tasting in October and it was delicious - I just haven't been back to sample the wines yet - I had surgery the day after our tasting and couldn't have alcohol the day before but fingers crossed the wines are just as good as the food!


    We're having an antipasto bar with all of the standard fare, to start. Guests will then be served a pasta dish, with salad, their choice of chicken, beef or veg entree and then a raspberry crepe for dessert.


    We're having a midnight table as well with cupcakes, pastries, fruit and a pizza, slider and grilled cheese sandwich bar (YAAASS!) - I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

    Awesome! I agree, I think plated is a bit more of an elegant touch.

    Mmmmmm that all sounds amazing. So glad to hear you got compliments on the food. If anything, I want the dinner to be remembered the most. Or maybe second to my dress. Ha!

    Mmmm antipasto! I am curious to hear how family style works for you! I like the idea of it, but if it was me I would worry I would want to take to much from the plates hahaha.


    Good score on getting the deal as well!

    Oh interesting! I am glad the vegetarian dish was great Smiley laugh It's always nice when they don't compromise on the veggie options. My fiance is pescatarian so we definitely took that into consideration, must have good fish!

    We weren't picky on venue/catering so when we chose our venue, we happen to know the catering there was amazing so it helped make that decision. We did a plated, 3 course meal, which a lot of our guests still rave about lol. We also had cocktail hour apps and a late night snack!
