When I first started planning our wedding, one of the first things I said was “I am NOT having a ‘sit down’ meal”. For anyone who has met myself and/or Debbie, you will know that neither of us are traditional, even in the slightest. For me, I love to mingle with family and friends who I haven’t seen in weeks, months or maybe even years. I’ve always loved the idea of more casual dining, where guests can grab a bite to eat on their own time, chow down with their hands and sit next to whoever they want!
Don’t get me wrong, I adore going out for lavish three course dinners with wine to accompany, however, when there are so many people in one place to chat to, I really don’t want to be sat next to the same people I see all the time for up to three hours, particularly as the bride!
So, Debs and I have decided on ‘street food’ style catering, and while we haven’t chosen our options yet, we wanted to share some ideas with you in case this sounds like something you might prefer to what’s considered “the norm”.
Something we’ve decided is 100% going to be one of our options. Our favourite restaurant (in the entire world, might I add) is this gorgeous rustic trattoria, that serves authentic Italian pizzas, cooked right in front of you at their restaurant, in Spain. Yeah I know, traditional Italian in Spain isn’t what you were expecting but don’t knock it! Pizza is quick, versatile and I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like it…
