Why You Should Consider BBQ Catering for Your Wedding


In 2020, thousands of weddings were put on hold due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. With people expecting (or at least hoping) that the world will return to something resembling normal again in the future, many engaged couples are starting to set the date for their big day.

When it comes to planning a wedding, there are so many little details to decide on that it can feel completely overwhelming.

While only you can decide whether or not you should invite your second cousins that you haven't seen since the third grade, we can definitely give you some direction when it comes to wedding catering.

BBQ catering is hands down one of the best options when it comes to feeding your wedding guests. Let's take a look at why exactly that is.

Everyone Loves BBQ

First of all, BBQ is a great choice for your wedding because everyone loves it! While your wedding day is all about you, you certainly want to make sure your guests have a great time as well. By providing nourishing, comforting, delicious BBQ, you're basically ensuring that the whole thing will be a success.

It Saves You From Stress

Let's face it, planning a wedding is incredibly stressful. There are so many details to focus on, from the dress and the flowers to the guest list and the venue. Planning your dream wedding while keeping it within your budget could practically be an Olympic event!

One way that you can cut down on stress is by having barbecue catering services. When you hire a caterer you can outsource one of the most important aspects of your wedding to an expert. You can also rest easy knowing that your catering will accommodate pretty much any diet that your guests have.

It's Affordable Without Sacrificing Quality

When you are feeding a crowd of people, cost becomes a major concern. This is particularly true when you factor in all the additional costs of a wedding. BBQ is great for a wedding because you're offering food everyone loves without having to break the bank.

BBQ Is the Perfect Social Food

What do you think of when you think of BBQ? Whether it's a family reunion, a 4th of July cookout, or the summers of childhood, you'll notice that BBQ is always served in a social environment.

BBQ helps to foster a community feel that encourages socialization. Attending weddings can sometimes feel awkward for guests who don't know many other people there, and the mere presence of BBQ can create a more lighthearted and social feel to the whole occasion.

There's Something For Everyone

There's a good chance that you know some people who are vegetarians, some people who hate vegetables, and some people who can't eat gluten. Maybe you have an aunt who adheres to a strict keto diet, while your best friend has been a dedicated vegan for years.

This can make it very difficult to choose a wedding catering service that doesn't leave someone hungry. However, BBQ is probably the best option in this regard.

There will obviously be plenty of pulled pork and chicken for meat lovers, but there are plenty of options for non-meat eaters as well. Classic sides like potato salad, green beans, and mac and cheese will keep all of your guests satisfied.

Many BBQ foods are naturally gluten-free as well. Accommodating to pretty much every food preference and allergy, BBQ can save you from worrying that your cousin is going to starve during the festivities.

It Lets People Customize Their Own Meal

BBQ catering is a great choice for weddings because it allows each guest to customize their own meal. Rather than having to commit to chicken or fish, people can pick and choose what they want and how much they want.

So much less waste is caused this way and it leads to happier, well-fed guests. In a world where everyone has their own taste and diet preferences, this can accommodate everyone.

It's Perfect For Both Indoor and Outdoor Weddings

It doesn't matter whether your wedding is indoors or outdoors, barbecue catering services are a perfect choice. It can be eaten easily in a picnic-style outdoors or at tables inside.

It's the Ultimate Comfort Food

When you are planning a wedding, the ultimate goal is to make sure everyone is comfortable and has a great time. You'll be hard-pressed to find an American who doesn't have cozy, positive associations with BBQ that leave them with warm fuzzy feelings inside. In fact, barbecuing in America dates all the way back to colonial times.

BBQ reminds us of childhood cookouts and family gatherings. It provides a relaxed feeling that encourages everyone to let loose and has a great time.
