Planning a Decadent Reception Menu For Your Island Wedding

When it comes time to get down to the little details of your island wedding, you will be anxious and ready to get things done and check them off of your list. By this time, you have probably already dedicated a little time to the planning process, but now you are ready to get really involved and see to those fine details that will make everything run smoothly.

When it comes to the menu at your reception, you will have even more detailed decisions to make. This is a time when you want to be conscious of your guests’ allergies, but not go overboard trying to accommodate your crazy cousin Christy who has self-diagnosed herself as having a gluten allergy. Your island wedding is for you to tie the knot, not your guests controlling what they interpret as a vacation with a wedding thrown in on the side! Of course, you want to be courteous to your guests by giving them options when it comes to the food, but you definitely need to make it mostly about you, your tastes and your favorite dishes. Just because one person does not really care for mushrooms does not mean nothing can contain mushrooms. A great solution could be to label anything that contains a food people are typically allergic to or greatly dislike like nuts, seafood, onions, garlic, gluten or salt. This will allow you to come off as being considerate and also give your guests some variety on the menu. They will love you just a little bit more when they get back from your island wedding.
