Casual means comfy
First here will come the look, not only of the bride and groom’s but as well of their guests. Actually the casual wedding is all about being comfy and at ease, so there won’t be place here for fancy dresses, crinolines and tuxedos. Forget the high last fashion heel either. The bride to achieve simple, but elegant casual look won’t have many problems: white or cream colored dress of any kind will do. You having a sea side wedding? Sundress seems perfect, or for a garden a streamline sheath is the choice. Don’t torture your groom with many layers of shirts, undershirts, waistcoats and jackets, which frankly may not even be welcomed. Nice idea are tan colored trouser with navy colored blazer or maybe un - tucked white dress shirt? Let your guests stay comfy as well: there is no need for them to wear stiff collars or tight corsets. Nice dresses or light trousers for the ladies, simple shirts for the gentleman. This kind of attire is perfect for receptions including children: they can play and have fun wearing they normal clothes, instead of getting their parent worried about shorn pair of pants or stained dress.
Food as simple as possible
Instead of looking through pages and pages of different menus the caterers offer to you think about your own choice of dishes. Think a home table loaded with delicious, homemade like dishes: mashed potatoes and gravy with roasted turkey, chicken salads, shepherd’s pie, roasted potatoes, lamb, pork in wine… well, as many possibilities as you only wish! If you prefer more vegetable based servings think about salty pies and tarts, such as variety of quiches, pates and toasts with different toppings. As for the drinks: beer, possibly homemade, lemonade, soda water to be mixed with variety of fruit syrups. For adults you can have some nice drinks served, but try to use classic recipes. However, anything that can be picked up with your finger and eaten while walking and chatting will be the thing!
Of course no wedding can miss the desert: can you see that long table, buckling under the weight of delicious pies, cakes and biscuits? Arrange them in a nice way using plates and platters. Some candies and lollipops will only add the touch of color. A pretty sight to all gourmets’ eyes.
