Wed Locally

In this article, “Think Globally, Wed Locally; How one Calgary couple applied the rigours of 100 Mile Diet to the happiest day of their lives” the writer talks about a locally grown dinner for a wedding. The bride’s father invites his family and friends to his daughter’s wedding, and asks them to bring local food. All the food was from their farms. They made diet food with no salt and pepper. And they enjoyed an outdoor wedding ceremony. The writer thinks that every wedding ceremony should include local food like what was happened in the past.

Have you ever been to a marriage ceremony where you didn’t like the food? Have you ever thought about how much money it takes for food to be creditable? Hosts always want their wedding be special, so they think food is one of the interesting things on this night. And they try to find a good chef to cook fantastic dishes. I had never heard about people who cook their wedding food by themselves or got help from their friends but I think if that happens it will be a nice way to get special food; they will cook which ever dishes their family and friends prefer, and the food cost will be only the cost of having the chef.

If you are one of those people who always want to do unique things, you will prefer to make your wedding with local food. It is uncommon in several cultures and I think people usually try to do strange things on this day to make their guests never forget it. The distinction is not just in the idea or in the food but also it’s in the food taste. I think that what we cook in our recipe is more delicious than what chefs do, even if they are wonderful cooks. People are more comfortable with homemade and they will compete with each other to cook delicious food.

When you invite people for your wedding, you want them to like your food and eat it. Chefs haven’t known about what your guest’s favorite food. They will cook what they think is good, but your guests might not like it. If you make it locally, you will care about what they prefer and what will surprise them when they eat it. They will find fantastic dishes with good qualities.

Some people bring their wedding chef from another big city to cook their food and be proud of them service. You can do that, but you will give all your money to them and lend more. I know the chef will care about every thing and you will find time to care about other things in the ceremony. But losing your money because of this chef will deprive you of spending a nice and long honeymoon. So, special homemade food with losing less money is a wonderful idea.

Really, making our own wedding food is a special thing we will do. Not everyone will get this idea or be able to do it because it is hard but we will get unique food, and our guests will like this food by home recipes. Also, the most important thing, this idea will help us to keep much money to enjoy in the honeymoon. Cooking local food by your family or friends is the best way to do a special wedding ceremony.
