When we dream about our ideal wedding day, a lot of us picture the weather to be ‘just perfect’ – meaning not a cloud in the sky, a full sun, not too hot and not too cold. Of course, only a tiny portion of us get to experience such an ideal climate – especially here in Melbourne!
At Your Private Chef we’re big advocates for the winter wedding. It may not be the most popular season to tie the knot, but it’s definitely got incredible potential, particularly in the departments of event styling and catering.
No other season elicits the same feeling of wonder and cosiness. Catering for winter weddings is different from other times of the year. During this season we tend to emphasise warm and hearty foods with robust flavours. Like all of our wedding catering options, you can choose from a broad menu as well as customisable options to suit your taste, guests and venue. Food is such an important part of your wedding and in winter, you can use it to warm your guests and welcome them to your special day. The same goes for your drinks list – why not include winter favourites like mulled wine and spiced cocktails?
Our biggest suggestion for winter wedding catering: Think outside the box.
In a previous blog we uncovered our secrets for effective event styling – including our number one tip: getting your theme right.
Stunning winter wedding themes we’ve seen in the past include rustic charm (think log cabins and fire places), warm and indulgent (deep maroons and royal blues) as well as winter wonderland (ice and snowflakes). Whatever you choose, make the most of the season and use winter to make your event extra special.
At Your Private Chef we can support you through all aspects of the event styling process – from concept and design, to equipment hire and execution.
