- Wedding: September 2018
Ok. So we’re BIG foodies. Like crazy big. One of our first dates was to a food festival. Thing is, financially and practically, a foodie wedding is unlikely. Since we’re not in planning stages I hadn’t thought about it much but I had a brainwave yesterday and thought I’d get the thoughts of the hive before I get carried away. Ploughman’s and cider!
When I say ploughman’s I mean a selection of local cheeses, everything from cheddar and brie to stilton and smoked cheese. Cold meats such as ham and beef (I know a couple of local farms that do their own). A range of good bread. Pickle/chutney (possible handmade by me or mum), grapes, humous (and accompaniments), crisps/chips, hard boiled eggs, etc. Along with a mixed leaf salad (rocket, spinach, etc). By cider I mean a local and traditional British scrumpy, alcoholic but flat. Although I thought we may have a range to include the more commercial carbonated version (but still alcoholic). Then we’d have pressed apple juice (which I believe is refered to as apple cider in the USA). I envisage it to be semi-served, served to tables and then help yourself. I also thought about having soup and mulled cider (alcholic and non-alcoholic version) since it’ll be a cold meal.
I don’t imagine this will be super cheap, since it’s all about the quality of the food (and drink). But it will be significantly cheaper than our “perfect meal” (and definitely more appealing to our guests).
What I’ve described is slightly more than a traditional ploughman’s to make it more appealing and I am aware that not everyone likes cider but everyone in our immediate family definitely does. Anyway, what do you guys think? Too specialist?
