Organizing a wedding involves many details to consider. From the choice of the date to the honeymoon to the organization of the wedding menu, the tasks to be performed by the bride and groom require a lot of preparation. When guests are asked what they liked about the wedding party, they often mention that the food was delicious. Have you chosen a country wedding theme? Are you worried about choosing a menu? Think of the barbecue, an idea that has become ultra-trendy! Let’s zoom in on the subject.
Why a Barbecue Buffet?
Coming straight from America, the barbecue has captured the attention of several brides and grooms lately. It is synonymous with wood fire, cooking over embers, or gathering around several pieces of meat grilled over a fire. Besides, it is the ideal formula to instill a festive and friendly spirit in your guests.
Say Bye-Bye to the Table Plan
Setting a seating plan is not easy, especially if you have guests who are not on good terms. With barbecue mode, forget about the headache! Your guests are free to choose their place. They can move around as they please and serve themselves as they please. Whether standing or seated to eat, your guests will have total freedom.
Note that the barbecue is ideally suited to a wedding celebrated in a small community.
No need to look elsewhere, the entertainment is already there!
The magic of the BBQ is to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Everyone will be at ease and can approach this or that person. It will also be a good opportunity for your guests to enlarge their circle of friends.
Lobster soup or crispy spinach rolls as a starter? Medallions of monkfish with crayfish or stuffed lamb for the main course? Ice cream or pièce montée for dessert? So many choices to make, and you can’t decide?
Leave the ordinary dishes aside! Offer your guests originality with the BBQ. Rosemary skewers with vegetables, marinated fish fillet with pineapple, grilled marshmallows… All succulent recipes to delight your guests’ taste buds. In addition, you will be able to combine several ingredients and modulate the sauces, marinades, and spices to create a wide variety of dishes. The grill master will help you with this.
