Plan Your Wedding Menu in Gurgaon

Courtyard Gurgaon Helps Make Your Menu Planning Easy and Flawless

GURGAON, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- Weddings in India emit a fusion of colour, energy, humility, love, and spirit of Indian culture, all mingled with contemporary sensibilities. One of the most integral parts of this occasion is food, which offers a perfect blend of various spices and flavours. There is one hotel in Gurgaon that helps make this part of the planning process easier for the couple.

"Couples to be" prefer keeping wedding menus authentic in accordance to their culture. It usually reflects the regional and cultural characteristics of the bride & groom. Courtyard by Marriott Gurgaon, a popular wedding venue in Delhi, recognises the importance of such elements and helps to customise the food menu according to one's taste. In recent times, many other cuisines like Thai, Continental, and Chinese have also become a part of the explicit feasts.

The menu for a wedding can be as simple or elaborate as the couple wants it to be, depending on the wedding budget and style of the function. One may want to stick to simpler dishes for an informal reception, or more gourmet treats for a formal one.

Coming from the renowned international restaurant in the Gurgaon hotel, here are a few points that should be kept in mind while planning a wedding menu:

1. Dining Scenario
Couples should decide whether they would like their guests to feast on a sit-down dinner or a buffet. Indians prefer the buffet system more as the other one requires an exact number of attendees for the occasion and is more formally organised. Choosing a buffet meal will also shorten the length by eliminating downtime between courses that are a routine in a sit-down.

2. Theme it
Theme weddings are already so popular; why not also customize the food service too? Theme-wedding menus create excitement and make the wedding a memorable event. It may even include the mannerisms, nuances of how the food is served because every small detail would make it impactful for a pleasurable guest. For instance, guests seated on the floor and food served on a banana leaf or in a Rajasthani thali would be quite interesting.

3. Centre of attention
The wedding day is all about 'the bride' and 'the groom'. You can plan a menu that has a special significance for both. For instance, if it was popcorn that was shared at a movie theatre in the initial days, then why not serve this at the wedding? When your guests will later think about what they ate, they will automatically remember the couple of honour.

4. Location Menus
Go over the menu provided by the site or the catering company. Look at all the options and narrow it down based on the budget. If some of the entrees or options may burn a hole in your pocket, just strike them out. Ask the coordinator about your choices; if you're allowed to select two or three options for guests, the buffet system and vegetarian selections and so on.

5. Taste it
Request a food tasting. Schedule a date when you can come in and taste several items from the menu. Bring your future spouse, a wedding party member or a family member to help you. Taste each selection with an open mind, remembering everyone has different taste buds. Take note of what you liked and didn't care for, in your wedding planning book. Most of the wedding locations come with their in house catering unless it is a farmhouse that you may have chosen. It's always a wise decision to go for a tasting session for a better judgment of the savoury. You sure want to serve the best food to your guests.

6. Presentation
While creating extraordinary catering menus you might want to complement them with highly designed settings. The final result should be a full-sensory culinary experience that transports guests to a bold world of celebrations.

7. Budgeting
30 % of a wedding budget falls on food. If you're on a tight budget, then cutting that amount down can go a long way to helping you stay on track. There's often a misconception that having a buffet instead of a plated meal saves you money. While this is usually the case, it isn't always so. Depending on the kind of buffet you're planning, it may require the same number of wait staff, and because more food is needed for a buffet than a plated meal, it can actually wind up costing more. But there are definitely food choices that can be done well in a buffet and save you money

8. Take advice
An experienced caterer not only helps you avoid costs, they also help you navigate issues like beverages, table linens, and even the timing of the occasion.

Weddings are a reflection of two different personalities and the promise of a life together. To keep your nuptial vows treasured, Courtyard by Marriott Gurgaon offers innovative wedding services and complete wedding solutions, from event planners, to banquet halls to group accommodations.
