Budget Wedding Catering: Best Money-Saving Options

It’s no secret that everything costs more at the moment. With the cost-of-living crisis still in effect, it can be a difficult time to plan a wedding, and bring everything in on budget. One of the main expenses of a wedding is the catering, as feeding dozens or even hundreds of hungry guests can come at a price.

Luckily, there are some great options available for feeding your wedding party on a budget, which we look at here in our latest blog.

Pizza Catering

Pizza catering is the perfect option for feeding a large number of people on a budget. Stone baked pizza cooks quickly, so it’s a great option for serving up fast and popular food. It’s delicious and filling, so you can be sure everyone will go home happy and well fed, and with a range of toppings available, it’s also easy to cater to range of tastes without a huge expense. Meat-eaters, vegetarians, and even lactose or gluten free guests can be catered to, and still enjoy the same experience as everyone else.

Package Deals

The best caterers usually have a selection of wedding packages available, offering a range of catering solutions at a more favourable price than paying for everything separately. As well as a fully compiled menu, look for a caterer that offers extras with their package, such as sides and deserts, as well as place settings, cutlery, centrepieces, or even a gazebo if you decide to have your wedding outdoors.

Wedding breakfast


Of course, the best way to cater on a budget is to provide the food yourself. This shouldn’t have to involve endless trips to the supermarket to provide a cold buffet, however. Some catering firms offer rental of their professional catering equipment, allowing you to cook up delicious results yourself. Here at The Roasting Pig for example, we offer a hog roast hire service, which includes both delivery and collection of an industrial-grade Titan hog roast oven. All you need to do is appoint a designated chef (we nominate the best man) and we’ll even include a full tutorial upon delivery, so you’re fully clued up on how to deliver the perfect results.

Here at The Roasting Pig, we specialise in wedding catering, and can provide whole hog roasts, stone baked pizza, wedding packages and equipment hire, all at competitive prices. Our other wedding catering services include delicious carvery selections, authentic American-style pulled pork, or the full medieval banqueting experience. Whatever your catering budget, our professional team are ready to discuss how we can help make your big day as special and memorable as possible. Contact us today for more info.
