Go gourmet (but stay on budget!) with the hottest trends for your wedding breakfast…

  1. DIY dishes go down a storm, so consider ice-cream sundae bars with different flavours and toppings, a marshmallow toasting area, a bruschetta bar or ‘hot rocks’ for at-table cooking.
  2. Indoor picnics bring the feeling of summer whatever the season. Think homemade pork pies and checked tablecloths.
  3. For a budget-friendly dessert table, ask your nearest and dearest to bring their best homemade cakes – Great British Bake Off-style judging optional.
  4. “We all know about cake pops but pie pops are the next big thing, and they’re ideal for cute and tasty canapés,” says Tamryn Lawrence, wedding consultant for clarenco.com. “Serve up with chutneys or sauces for dipping.”  
  5. Cure the midnight munchies with something tasty but light, like popcorn, so guests don’t feel too bloated to boogie. Try this bbcgoodfood.com recipe and serve up in traditional card boxes.
