After eating at approximately 250+ weddings across Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula, it’s safe to say we have tasted some of the best food the region has to offer. The best catering doesn’t always equate to the best experience either; the quantity is just as important. No one wants to hear that all their guests had to stop at Maccas on the way home to finally get a full belly. It’s also important if there’s alcohol at your wedding to provide adequate food so that everyone isn’t sloshed at 8pm and rolling around on the dancefloor. Below, we’ll name drop our FAVE local venues that not only leave you feeling satisfied with the quantity, but will have you enjoying every mouthful. Seasonal produce is always a big win in our books too, and even better when it’s local.
There are two main ways to feed everyone:
- Cocktail style. This is normally roaming service throughout the night, and allows everyone to eat a variety of dishes across the evening at their own pace.
- Seated service. Normally consisting of an entree and a main, it’s a great way to ensure everyone gets a proper meal so they have the energy to boogie the night away. It’s also easier for you, the couple, to actually sit down and eat the food that you’ve paid good money for!
- Shared-style. Having shared plates put in the middle of tables for guests to serve themselves. This is a great, social way to eat!
As vendors, we think it’s especially important that venues provide us with a satisfying meal. We have normally been working for 6-7 hours non-stop by dinner time and love it when venues treat us like family.
So, here’s our favourite Geelong wedding venues that feed your guests (and us!) well:
