More couples are looking for relaxed dining to allow their guests to interact, with couples choosing sharing platters and barbecues for their wedding breakfast rather than the traditional, sit-down meal. Cheese wedding cakes are a popular option for couples with savoury tastes – or can be offered alongside the sweeter variety as part of the evening feast. Food stations are another great way for guests to graze, mingle, dance and graze again.
