Consider a Catered BBQ for Your Summer Wedding
A Wide Variety of Barbecue Catering Ideas for Your Outdoor Wedding Reception
The summertime is certainly synonymous with many activities in and around the City of Toronto, such as cottage weekends, days at the beach, baseball and soccer, and boating, to name only a few. It is also the time for at-home pleasures like enjoying the backyard pool and a barbecue; yes, there is something magical about the aroma from a barbecue permeating the neighbourhood on a beautiful summer evening.
Summer is also a time when many couples plan their weddings, often outdoors, to take advantage of the ambience afforded by a warm, sunlit venue and the aesthetics of trees and flowers in full bloom. Well, if two of the traditions of summer are barbecues and weddings, just imagine the synergies of a barbecue-style wedding reception.
A BBQ wedding reception can accommodate the formalities associated with this special day while providing the wedding party and guests alike the opportunity to appreciate a more casual social and dining atmosphere.

Toronto Catering Services Offering Unique and Memorable Wedding Receptions
Outdoor summer weddings are indeed special occasions, times when family and friends come together to enjoy each other’s company and to share the joy of a most significant day in the lives of the newlyweds. Conversely, outdoor summer weddings should not be a time when family members and friends are engaged in activities that keep them away from delighting in the same experiences as all their guests – activities such as setting up the venue, ensuring that the meal is served on time, and overseeing the bar service, etc.
To make certain that this special occasion is completely worry-free for the hosts and the planners, Ida’s Kitchen offers a complete range of supplemental services to complement their menu preparation and meal service. These additional catering services can include:
- Themed decorations
- Tent or canopy rentals
- Set-up of tables and chairs
- Plates, cutlery, linens, and glassware
- Onsite chefs, serving staff, bartenders
- Clean up, break down, and trash disposal
