The Colorful Live Counter

When it is about a healthy wedding menu, how can we miss live counters? Live counters are a blessing to all age groups. At the live bar, you can have veggies of all colors. Colorful foods, which are generally fruits and vegetables, contain all the major vitamins and antioxidants that we need. Moreover, these food items are low in calories, which is a great benefit. Along with maintaining good health, the nutrients in vegetables and fruits boost your stamina. This means you are going to have more dancers at your wedding than ever.

Also, it is very easy for your guests. They can always sauté their favorite veggies, add their seasonings and herbs, and enjoy their oil-free diet. Adding a live counter will simply add joy in your dieter guests’ life.

Salad bar

It is another excellent option for all your health-conscious wedding guests. Having a salad bar will ensure that none of your guests go hungry. Yes, otherwise, most health-conscious guests avoid eating anything. They simply hand over the gift and leave. But make sure you come with some exciting and yummy salad options. Apart from the staple greens, chickpeas, and macaroni, you can consider having exotic fruits at the bar. This will make the whole thing more enticing for dieters.

Tandoori Counter

A perfect treat for your health-conscious wedding guests, they are sure to enjoy the meal. Tandoori is always a better and healthy food option when it comes to a healthy wedding menu. Tandoori food items use less oil than all the other oily and fried snack items. Set up a tandoori vegetable counter at your wedding for sure, your guests are going to enjoy the tandoori platter. Even your non-vegetarian health-conscious guests would be delighted to have a tandoori bar at the wedding.
