I admit to watching perhaps more than my fair share of trashy TV shows, and one of those I follow faithfully is "Four Weddings." Every episode finds me salivating over the fare being served. Unfortunately, I'm at that awkward age when there are very few fancy weddings happening in my world, so my only options for a wide variety of delicious foods are either tapas bars or all-you-can-eat buffets. Where and how could I duplicate this? I've even considered going to work for an event caterer on a part-time basis just to sample everything.

Can you cook...?

Most are appetizer foods and are not hard to prepare....you can even buy some frozen that are tasty but it's hit and miss...

Look at appetizers in the front of most cookbooks.

...otherwise keep hitting the tapas bars or order appetizers from your favorite restaurants.

Some caterers sell their foods retail....just ask.

Not just the appetizers; I want the sit-down plated rare roast beef meal, too. And the wedding cake. The whole enchilada. Maybe I should just hang out at the back door of reception halls and nab the leftovers (you know there's a ton of waste at these things).

You can find a few not in such good health with no kids
Plan the dream wedding you want

After a few you’ll be set for life ��

What was being served that cannot be found in a good restaurant?

That's what I want to know!


I mean . . . the quality control is generally better at a restaurant, than at events where everything is served at the same time to a large group.

I love that show, "Four Weddings". I find it compelling on many levels. Culturally, socially and economically. I enjoy the diverse cross section of brides, and the competition - which includes venue, gown, decor, ceremony and cuisine, is interesting.

But frankly, sometimes the food sucks. There are many weddings that simply serve what I call "wedding food". Meals that are typical of caterers or "wedding mills". Not all of the food is amazing. Guests complain frequently about cold, dry, over cooked or under cooked, food.

I was married in the 1980s. Probably the WORST time for interesting wedding food or beautiful wedding gowns.

The fare at my wedding was "meh". Shrimp cocktail or fruit cocktail. Choice of Chicken Cordon Blu or prime rib. Rice or baked potato. Broccoli, baby carrots with an orange Cointreau glaze, and salad. Nothing terribly interesting.

While watching that show, I notice that many of the contestants STILL have the same foods that I had.

I don't drool over many of the foods at the weddings. Some are quite good. Others? Not so much.

Maybe I'll have an anniversary dinner, or a Big Birthday party, where I can choose my own food and venue.

I agree with others who said that you can have these foods.

You don't have to go to a wedding to eat wedding food. You can go to any event that has a big catered meal or party. Perhaps an alumni event or a charity dinner? You can order a wedding cake or wedding style cake at any bakery. Just tell them what you want in advance.
