Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Guest blogger: Sarah Hendler, tips to unwind and eat!

February 8, 2010

Hi Sarah here, I always liked food but when you marry a chef you start to LOVE IT.  Right when we got engaged people asked, “who is catering your wedding??”  We knew the food would be the focal point of our entire event. The way it was presented, served and tasted would set the tone for our party. For me the whole process of designing our menu was memorable. Yes, having a fiancé that knew some insider info was helpful, but I really learned a lot from collaborating and listening to my wedding planner, adhering to the budget and having a clear vision on the taste, feel and look of our wedding. I wanted to share some advice and lessons I learned along the way with the awesome 100 Layer Cake readers.

Here are my thoughtful ways to relax, appreciate and eat your way through your wedding.

Enjoy it! You spent the money to have it there for people to enjoy and help create a memorable event in your life. Make sure you sit down or at least take a private moment to have a bite!


I’ll be back tomorrow to discuss the knitty gritty of tastings, venues and meal options. In the meantime, what wedding food memories are you still salivating over?

chow, Sarah
