Couple Opt For Huge £350 Domino's Pizza Buffet For Their Wedding Day Meal
A couple said 'I dough' (not sorry) and then fed their guests with a massive £350 ($450) order from Domino's Pizza.
Newlyweds Victoria and Tom Browne scrapped plans for a traditional wedding breakfast early on in planning and looked hard for something within their budget.
Victoria, 26, contacted her local branch of the pizza chain to ask what they would be able to get for the money and was thrilled to be told they would be able to fully cater for all her guests.
So after the ceremony, staff delivered the food 'piping hot' and laid out a total of 30 large pizza boxes, 20 garlic breads, 20 boxes of chicken strips and 20 boxes of wedges.
There was also copious amounts of the couple's favourite garlic and herb dip.
Victoria, of St Austell, Cornwall, said: "Most people know me and Tom just don't do things traditionally. I didn't want traditional sandwiches or anything at the wedding, I wanted something that stood out.
"We actually kept joking saying 'shall we have Domino's?' but as it got closer and we didn't have any food plans, we started seriously considering it and I emailed Domino's asking the question."
The buffet consisted of 30 large pizzas and 60 boxes of sides, all for the £350 price tag.
On the big day itself, Victoria and her husband Tom, 29, said that staff came 'strolling in and shocked everybody'.

She continued: "I was so paranoid about whether they were actually going to be able to do it that I went in the day before and said 'are you are all aware of my order for tomorrow?'
"They were pretty good. It all came in piping hot and the staff were quite happy to stand and have a photo with me.
"People are still gobsmacked with it, people think that as a buffet you have to have like sandwiches and stuff and I don't really like pasties and I'm not picking them because everyone else likes them."
The couple said that when they first told people about their plans, that guests were a little sceptical.
Victoria said her friends and family were certain in the run-up to the wedding that she was just 'winding them up'.
Even her hairdresser was still questioning on the day whether they were actually going to be offering Domino's Pizza in place of a traditional wedding breakfast.
But the couple said all doubt was quickly withdrawn when the smell of fresh pizza and garlic bread filled their wedding venue.
The bride said that praised the couple throughout the day for their unique decision and there wasn't a displeased guest in sight. That said, the sheer volume of pizza may have proved too much for the wedding party.
Victoria said: "I was surprised at the amount they delivered, I thought, 'we're going to have to take this home and have it for a couple of weeks'."
"We would have ended up having to bin it which would have been devastating for me. I would normally order it at least once a week and I definitely won't be for a little bit. I don't want to see anymore pizzas for a while."
A Domino's spokesperson said: "Congratulations to the happy couple! Pizza is the best food in the world and your wedding is the best day of your life, so why not bring the two together. We're glad the bride and groom were happy with their delivery. We can proudly say Domino's is the Official Food of providing the best dinner you'll get at a wedding, ever!"
