There’s more to a wedding food menu than the main course. You must make use of the happy hour as an opportunity to delight your guests with amazing bites that they will love.
It can be some surprising food pairings or appetizers, supplementing your cocktails with a fun theme and follow up the dinner with a guilty secret for dessert.
Cheese Wheel Cakes
A cake made from wheels of cheese are perfect for a pre-reception cocktail get together. Have each layer of a different cheese flavor say, smoky gouda, creamy goat cheese, sharp cheddar, etc. with a side of meats and crispy bread.
What could be more delicious or refreshing than a fruity popsicle? More so a gourmet version with flavors like lavender or raspberry. Check with your caterer to serve one for the cocktail hour – a fun twist on a frozen treat with your favorite champagne!
If you do not fancy wedding cakes, you can opt for an assortment of desserts instead. Doughnuts are a perfect alternative to an elaborate cake cutting that comes with several toppings, colors, flavors, and sizes. It’s best to serve them up in matching crockery that goes with your place settings.
Ask your caterer for a more hands-on option instead of the standard hors d’oeuvres. A raw bar with a chef rolling sushi, shucking oysters or just cooking up dishes in front of everyone. Attendees will have as much fun watching their meal getting ready as they will be eating it.
Classic Carnival Food
Does it get any more mouth watering than fried stuff? Fresh donuts, fried snacks and more – all served up in patterned plates or fancy wrappers. Top off the theme with several toppings or dipping sauces. A fresh hot funnel cake cart for a late night snack too can be a hit.
Keep your guests up late and grooving on the dance floor with coffee-imbibed desserts. Some Starbucks-inspired coffee dessert drinks like frappuccinos piled high with homemade whipped cream can do the job as can espresso-spiked brownies. A few decaf options like a chocolate milk shake or even flavored frothed milk too might suit the event.
Popular at weddings for years, now it’s all about the presentation of comfort food. Mini tacos served up with lime can make for a display that can wow everyone.
Popcorn Snack Bar
Be more casual, offer your guests the option to mix and match stuff according to their mood. Good old popcorn is always a safe bet (the smell alone is enough!). Hand it out in bags so everyone can get back to the dance floor with an easy to grab ‘n go.
A throwback to a favorite from your younger days is a guaranteed hit. Whether a banana split sundae or slushies, a sampling of one’s favorite childhood sweets will make everything else seem even more delicious.
Nightcaps and the outdoors blend well. Set up a station outside near a fire pit, or have waiters serve ice cream and offer an array of toppings for guests to choose.
