Prepare For Wedding Season with Scottish Hampers

Wedding season is fast approaching, and hundreds of brides and grooms across the country will be looking to put the finishing touches to plans for the most special day of their lives. Whether they are finalising table plans or booking hotels for stag parties, there is always an important task to be carried out to ensure that the upcoming nuptials go smoothly and everyone has a memorable day. Food is one of the most important aspects of the whole event, whether it is the wedding breakfast for all of the happy couple’s closest friends and family, or choosing what food to wake up to on what will be a busy and important day. This guide examines how best to enhance a wedding ceremony and all its accompanying events with the perfect food choices.

The Hen / Stag Party

Whether taking the gents on a golfing holiday or whether the girls are being whisked away on a spa weekend, the bride and groom can ensure their guests are well catered for with a choice of food hampers. The hampers are available in a variety of sizes to cater of all sizes of party; the groom and his best man might choose a simple cheese hamper, whilst the bride and her army of bridesmaids might opt for a delicious hamper full of nibbles to ensure they are satisfied while they enjoy their spa break.

The Rehearsal Dinner

Bringing the two families together for a sit-down meal is always a stressful task for brides and grooms, so worrying about menus and food lists is an unnecessary hassle. Hosting an informal gathering with a luxury food hamper for guests to enjoy at their leisure is a great way to encourage family members and close friends to relax before the busy day ahead. Many of these hampers include wine or beer to create a more relaxed environment, with food ranging from cheese selections to traditional Scottish cakes. There is something to please the majority of palates, which will be reassuring to the bride and groom who have many other things on their mind.

The Morning Before

Pre-marital jitters can set in on the morning of a wedding day, and the ideal way to settle them is with an ultra luxurious champagne hamper. Presented in beautiful gift boxes, these hampers can be given as gifts or purchased by the bride and groom themselves as a way to ease themselves into what will be a day of indulgence and excitement for them. The exclusive champagnes are often accompanied by treats such as chocolate truffles which can be shared around bridesmaids, hair stylists and make-up assistants in preparation for the remainder of the big day.

The Morning After

The day after the wedding can often be as stressful and hectic as the wedding itself. Whether heading immediately off on honeymoon, thanking friends and family for their attendance, arranging and transporting gifts home or simply spending the day as a married couple for the first time, it is important for the bride and groom not to have to worry about food choices. Welcoming in their first day of married life can also be given a touch of luxury with a food hamper filled with delicious sweets, chocolates, champagne and other indulgent offerings; a way to cling to the luxury of the previous day for as long as possible.

A Gift Idea

Some couples decide to register so that their guests know exactly what items they would like to commence their married life with. However, for those who wish for their gift desires to remain ambiguous, there are a variety of options for wedding guests, one of these being a build-your-own food hamper catered entirely to the tastes of the bride and groom. Port or whisky lovers can be satisfied with the inclusion of each beverage, whilst personal favourite cheeses, preserves or desserts can be included for a personal touch that demonstrates to the bride and groom the thought that has gone into the gift.
