Yes, you read that right! Health food has caught the attention of the wedding industry as well. Despite your wedding being an occasion for indulgence, there are still going to be a few guests who’d stick to healthy eating. And for such health-conscious guests, the caterers these days are offering a menu that includes items like veggie wraps, gourmet salads, roasted nut chaat, and much more. So, make sure you ask yours to add a few healthy food items in your wedding menu. Some couples even prefer using farm-fresh organic items for the preparation of all the food items in their menu. This way, you can easily satiate your guests’ taste buds along side keeping their tummies happy.

2. DIY Counters
