When guests are headed to a wedding reception, there’s one thing on their minds: food. It’s one aspect of an event that can make a wedding stand out from the rest, and it’s definitely one of the best parts to kick the night up a notch. Looking for ways to impress the foodies in your life? We’re sharing five ideas below.
1. S'Mores Bar:
Who doesn’t love a sweet treat? Add a DIY element to your reception with a s’mores bar. It’s easy, budget-friendly, and the perfect snack to give your guests a little pick-me-up throughout the night.
Summertime calls for a delicious burger, so why not have them at your reception? They’re a great surprise for those expecting a traditional reception dinner. Bonus: We added miniature mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup bottles to each place setting so guests could dress their burger just the way they liked it.
3. Fresh Foods:
Whether it’s a charcuterie board, tomato and mozzarella salad, or your favorite fruits and veggies, opt for a fresh option like this during your cocktail hour. It gives guests something light to munch on that won’t leave them feeling too full before the big meal.
4. Chicken + Biscuits:
Fact: Calories don’t count on wedding day. These miniature chicken + biscuits were a total hit at Corey and Tanner’s wedding to hold guests over until the main course.
5. Bite-Sized Options:
Shrimp cocktail? Yes, please. Pass around a tray with bite-size options so guests have the opportunity to try a few different appetizers.
