One of the things that I also do as a wedding planner is make sure that the food looks good and is served correctly. There is nothing like having someone throw down a pile of mess in front of you to eat - or having to get up and go through a buffet line to see piles of terrible looking food!
I see a lot of brides trying to short change this area and save money. Saving money is always great EXCEPT when it comes to good food and service on your wedding day! It is the biggest point of memory your guests will have.
Start with setting the table correctly.
This is a basic table set up and very elegant. It is also very easy for wedding guests to understand.
Most importantly make sure the food tastes and looks good! There is a HUGE difference between a CHEF and a COOK!
