Sandwiches at Weddings

Having sandwiches at a wedding is not the norm for my culture. We’re a rice and coconut-milk-rich dishes kinda folk. Even our fellow countrymen of different races tend to pile on the rice rather than have sandwiches.

However, a few of my customers have requested sandwiches for their wedding and this has piqued the interest of my other clients. The prevalent question I’ve received lately is “How do I incorporate sandwiches in my wedding?”

Easy Peasy!

Firstly, the best way to serve them is in bite sizes and as Hors d’oeuvre. Hand them out during cocktail hour or while waiting for the event to start. For example, perhaps you could serve these to your guests while you get ready for your Nikah or between church and tea pouring ceremonies.

Make sure you pick simple and light flavors as you wouldn’t want them to be too full for the main course.

Next is to add them alongside the buffet table as a healthier or kid friendly option for your guests. Children prefer fuss free food that can be gobbled up quickly so that they can continue playing. Sandwiches, especially of the finger variety, would be ideal for them.

Last but not least is to have them as main dish for your picnic/garden/park themed wedding. One of my favorite bloggers, Danni of Oh Hello Friend had her nuptials at a beautiful park where she and her husband had their first date. There were mats laid on the grass, vintage furniture arranged perfectly and the sun cast warm rays throughout the day. The guests were treated with individually wrapped sandwiches right before the ceremony.

Something out of the box but very meaningful for the couple at the same time. Perhaps you could try it! A picnic reception is easy on the pocket and a great way to be closer to your guests.

Hope these three suggestions have given you inspiration to add sandwiches to your wedding.

Any other ways to incorporate sandwiches to a wedding?

We’ve arrived at 2013. My God, how time flies. Judging from my previous post, it whizzed by at breakneck speed. :)

As I’ve mentioned, I have learnt a lot in between this post and the last. Applying what I’ve learnt though has been an arduous task. Business leaped as soon as we left the seminar which resulted in me having less time to actually sit down and review what needs to be done. I know, this sounds like another excuse but life just finds a way to get to you.

Nevertheless, I’ll have to¬†consciously make a decision to review what I’ve learnt and actually take the baby steps needed to start my journey to wealth. Wish me Luck!

On a side note, I’ve written down some mini goals inspired by Emma Chapman of A Beautiful Mess fame. Last November, she laid down four simple goals to achieve for that month. Considering I’ve got the motivation and attention span of a fish, I’ve decided to focus my goals one month at a time just like Emma.

Here are mine for January 2013:

1. Write for 20 minutes, 3 times a week. (Yes, this was inspired by her as well) A blog post, a couple of tips, a fictional story. Anything. As long as I WRITE.

2. Read the Quran, at least 3 times a week. I find that this brings the most peace and clarity than anything else I usually do. Even a few sentences make all the difference.

3. Drink between 3 to 3.5 Liters of water a day.¬†Water, the cure for most illnesses and yet, the hardest thing for people to be consistent in taking. Apparently you need to take 7% of your body weight to get to your optimum body water level. If you’re quick you will roughly know my weight now. ;)

Well, you’ll probably be seeing me more often here now since I’ve committed myself to writing a little more than I usually do.

Do you have any goals or resolutions? Have you broken any of them yet?
