M.E.I. Catering Unveils New Analysis of Wedding Reception Trends

Weddings are much more varied, but receptions retain many traditional elements, reports M.E.I Catering


Trevose, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2014 -- In today's world, weddings don't follow a set pattern. They can be traditional, but they can also involve fun costumes and role plays like dressing up as Jedis and having an AT-AT wedding cake. Regardless of the form they take, one thing has remained the same: The new couple certainly doesn't want to be the ones cooking the meals for the reception.

"Wedding party catering is something that should never go out of style," said Nick Milillo, owner and chef of M.E.I. Catering. "People who are celebrating don't want to be stuck in the kitchen on their big day. They want to enjoy great food while they socialize with their friends and relatives."

Food for a Bucks County wedding reception can take many forms. Traditional meals involve fine foods that are served to each guest at dining tables, and even the most unique wedding can have this type of dinner as one of its elements. Wedding buffets are another option. With these, lavish amounts and types of food can be served, but without the fear of having people end up with food that they don't like. Guests can simply select the foods they prefer from the buffet selection. Another popular option is the cocktail party. This form of party typically has light food options that accompany a variety of liquor choices.

"Of course, there is far more to a good wedding reception than the food," Milillo noted. "The choice of reception venue, entertainment, and other aspects are often just as important. That's why we make sure to offer options and suggestions for all of the related aspects of a wedding celebration. We offer banquet halls in Bucks County, but we can also suggest outdoor venues if that's what a client is looking for. Along with venue choices, we can help wedding party planners find good photographers, florists, DJs, and live musicians."

Many wedding specialists offer both packages and standalone services. Choosing a wedding package makes it easy to have everything handled in one shot, while ordering services separately is better for those who have very specific ideas about some aspects but not others. For example, if someone wants a specialized wedding cake, or already has a particular musician in mind, there's no point in ordering a package that provides a different one. On the other hand, someone who is more interested in the fact that she's getting married than in the specifics of the reception will be better off ordering an all-inclusive package.

"We see all sorts of variations and themes," Milillo said. "Changing traditions mean that caterers have become very adaptable and can work with almost any plan. The end goal is always to make the reception the perfect topper for a perfect day."
