Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Nutrishous offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

can caterers cater for vegans?

Short answer, of course! Caterers should be able to cater for all dietary requirements.



if i book an icecream truck to roll up to the ceremony...

how do i stop people who are NOT guests eating my icecream? :O

I suggest you organise for someone( perhaps a younger friend/relative ) of one of the guests to be at the Icecream van to monitor it. You could pay him/her a nominal amount for their time. 

what kind of foods should i avoid on my big day?

to avoid stains, bloating, messes, etc

Prior to the ceremony I think you should avoid anything that may make your breath unpleasant ie garlic, salmon, onion.  Anything with food dye or colouring ie red wine, flavoured cordials to avoid stains on clothing or your teeth. Stick to healthy, fresh food. nothing greasy ie pizzas, fish and chips, fast food. 

Once the ceremony is over you can indulge in anything that you love, in moderation of course.

I hope this helps!

Enjoy! It's your day, do what you love au

Call me if you like some more advice, I do exactly the catering you are asking about.

Pre-reception canapes and drinks timing?

Our ceremony is at 3 pm, I'm guessing it will go for about an hour, and our reception starts at 6pm. Everything will be in the same place, so our guests will have around 2 hours ceremony and reception. One hour of pre-reception canapés and drinks is all we can afford. We thought that we could have the canapes between 4:30 and 5:30, that way the guests are only left doing "nothing" for 30 mins at a time. However, the wedding coordinator at our venue thinks its best to have the canapes 5pm - 6pm, as she thinks that having a drinks "break" of 30 mins before the reception is weird. I think it's weirder to have a whole hour in which the guests are doing nothing after the ceremony, but I could well be wrong. Thoughts?

Hi Bruna, my business "Nutrishous" does exactly what you are looking for. I agree with you, the guests have spent most of the day preparing for the wedding and generally won't eat much due to lack of time and (perhaps)  stress. However once the ceremony is over everyone is feeling more relaxed and the more relaxed you feel the more  you will be ready to eat, drink and start to really enjoy themselves. 

We have catered for Wedding guests on the beach, for after the Ceremony and before the reception with cheese platters, canapes, chocolate dipped strawberries (delicious with a glass of bubbles) gourmet mini sandwiches etc. It was a real winner according to the bride and groom.

If you would like to talk to me or email me I would be very happy to discuss options. 

We also cater for bridal parties including the men of course for pre ceremony nutritious food

How do I tell my guests I'm not providing alcohol?

I agree with with Plenty Catering Co. If your guests know you well enough they will respect your decision not to have alcohol. Provided you state that on your invitation there won't be a problem on the day.  It is your Wedding day afterall.

Are caterers generally willing to incorporate some items you really love?

Or do most just have set packages?

Not sure about others but we are a small family catering business who always puts the client wishes first. As stated under our pagerecently, we are in the process of organising a "gluten free" & "dairy free" menu for a bridal party.

Do many caterers provide vegan alternatives?

A lot of my friends are vegan (30% of our guests) and I don't know how to navigate the food issue as my family all eat meat and will want it.

I am in the process of trialling Gluten Free and Dairy Free canapés for a bridal party I am catering for in April. A challenge but I love a challenge. It is becoming more "the norm" and we need to be able to adapt.

Happy to help anyone.
