There’s a lot to consider when it comes to your wedding day. No one component is more important than the other, so it can become stressful. But it’s important to have as much fun with the process as possible. Part of having fun with it is making sure you’re planning the wedding that is right for you. With so many traditions, it’s easy to feel boxed in, so be sure to give yourself some room to think. Here are some event catering ideas you may not have considered.

Everyone loves a buffet. They get exactly what they want, in the amount they want and they don’t have to deal with anything they weren’t expecting. Buffets at weddings are actually catching on, so don’t be afraid to have one at yours.

You can also elect to keep things informal. Plenty of Los Angeles catering companies will provide you the option to have several different stations featuring delectable finger food that your guests can enjoy at their own leisure. This is also a popular option right now.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to do away with tradition and simply have whatever you want. I you and your partner have a particular favorite dish that isn’t particularly fancy, there’s no reason you can’t serve it on your big day. Just remember that a lot of people spent a lot of money coming into town and buying you gifts, so don’t pick junk food!
