Indian Wedding Feast: Wedding Foods

Indian Wedding FeastFood stuffs, apart from being the basic necessities of life play an equally important role in every occasion of our life. Indians are known to be fond of varied spicy tastes and eating habits, depending from place o place. So you can very well imagine about the food platter served at the Indian weddings, which is a grand event of one’s lifetime, therefore there is no doubt about the kind of delicacies you will get to experience. On the other hand, Indian weddings are all about having a jolly and memorable time with some traditional feel which reflects on the food items as well.

However, regions from where the bride and the groom originate also make a difference in the menu or the kind of food being served, though; the basics are almost similar to the other and without the presence of the perfect Indian platter, we cannot enjoy the real style of Indian wedding.

Types of Wedding Feasts:

Behind every successful occasion or an event be it a gathering of four persons or a big wedding, food plays a vital part to set the right ambiance. Indian Wedding Feast will be in two different shades, either vegetarian or non-vegetarian or at times it can be a mixture of both keeping in mind about what majority of the guests would prefer.
