Celebrate your big day with guests online via a beautifully packed meal
If you are livestreaming your wedding and want to celebrate with your guests remotely, sending them beautifully packed delicious meals is a thoughtful way to share the love. Many couples who are not ready to host a gathering or can only invite a handful understandably think of translating the reception experience in each home so we came up with our list of caterers, restaurants, and food suppliers who can give your big day that special touch. Gatherings are also only allowed in GCQ and MGCQ classifications which means an online gathering for your reception is the best option for LGUs in tighter restrictions.
Remember that an actual zoom party isn’t required–you can livestream your ceremony and send them a boxed meal they can enjoy on their own. It can also be a way to say thank you to special people on your guest list who might not be ready to attend your ceremony, such as principal sponsors or children entourage. Another consideration: these picks can also provide you meals for your pre-wedding zoom parties!
Below are seven options, including experienced wedding caterers, restaurant favorites, and a way for you to reach loved ones all over the Philippines!
Exactly what the name suggests–these meals are tailor made for zoom parties! If you’re having a zoom reception, you can still treat your guests who are sheltering at home with Bizu’s favorites like the Salmon Rockefeller Gourmet Set (P1,250) or the 10 Hour US Roast Beef Gourmet Set (P1,155). If you are not looking for a heavy meal to treat your loved ones with, try the Afternoon Tea set (P1,000) or the Petite Graze Box (P1,950 for 2-3 PAX). These are also beautiful gifts to send to your principal sponsors or other loved ones even if you won’t be holding a zoom reception. Bizu is running a 10+1 promo and we highly suggest working with wedding caterers if you are ordering a big number of boxed meals.
