Vine & Dine

5 ways to wow your guests at your wedding through food and drink!

Your wedding day is going to be one of the most memorable days of your life, we want to make the experience the best and ensure your guests leave with a ‘WOW’ feeling.

1: Arrival drinks:

Although alcohol is usually not allowed before a legal wedding at Vine and Dine (LINK BUSINESS DIRECTORY PAGE LINK), we can offer fruit infused waters, and mocktails as an arrival drink which won’t go amiss with your guests travelling from far and wide. When they arrive at the wedding venue, popular options include Nojito, a minty refreshment before the wedding vows…. or sparkling elderflower, a simple and elegant drink to quench anyone’s thirst. This is a wonderful way to make sure your guests aren’t just sat waiting for something to drink!

2: Unique Food Stations:

Instead of a traditional sit-down meal, consider incorporating unique food stations that will leave your guests in awe. These stations can offer a variety of cuisines and flavours, allowing your guests to explore different culinary delights. Popular options include a sushi station, a gourmet taco bar, or a build-your-own pasta station. By providing a diverse range of options you can cater to different dietary preferences and ensure everyone finds something they love. These interactive food stations not only satisfy hunger but also create a lively and engaging atmosphere.

3: Delectable Canapés:

Consider delighting your guests with an exquisite selection of canapés. Canapés are bite-sized hors d'oeuvres that offer a variety of flavours and textures, perfect for mingling and socialising during your wedding reception. Work with us to curate a diverse menu featuring a range of savoury and sweet canapés and incorporate local and seasonal ingredients to add a touch of freshness and regional flair to each bite. From mini sliders and bruschetta to delicate pastry puffs and elegant seafood bites, these delectable canapés will impress your guests and leave them wanting more. This interactive approach to dining ensures that your guests are constantly indulged with culinary delights throughout the evening.

4: Signature Cocktails:

Add a touch of sophistication and personalisation to your wedding by serving signature cocktails. Work with a professional mixologist to create unique drinks that reflect your personalities and preferences as a couple. Consider incorporating special ingredients or flavours that hold sentimental value to you both. Whether it's a custom-created cocktail or a twist on a classic, these signature drinks will leave a lasting impression on your guests and create a memorable experience.

5: Dessert Extravaganza:

End your wedding on a sweet note by offering a dessert extravaganza that will satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, consider a dessert buffet with a variety of delectable treats. From miniature cupcakes and macarons to chocolate-dipped strawberries and artisanal ice cream, the options are endless. You can also include interactive elements such as a live dessert station where guests can watch as desserts are prepared or customised. This delightful array of desserts will leave your guests in awe and provide a delightful conclusion to your special day.

When it comes to wowing your guests at your wedding, food and drink play a vital role in creating an unforgettable experience. By paying attention to the arrival drinks, incorporating unique food stations, using local and seasonal ingredients, serving signature cocktails, and creating a dessert extravaganza, you can ensure that your guests leave with a "WOW" feeling. These culinary delights will not only satisfy their taste buds but also add a touch of personalisation and create cherished memories.

So, let your wedding be a celebration of love and exceptional gastronomy, making it a day that will be remembered for years to come.
