You’ve spent months meticulously planning your wedding and the day has finally come. Although weddings are arguably among the most exciting and joyful life experiences, they’re also exhausting all-day events, particularly for the bride, groom, and wedding party members who are helping to orchestrate this full-scale production. Between hair & makeup and the countless photo opps, you’re bound to get hungry. Many couples carefully plan out their catering for the dinner reception, but forget that it can often be 8-12 hours (or more!) between the time you start getting ready for the ceremony and the time you can sit down to enjoy your dinner.
The solution? Have light, fresh bites on hand that are substantial enough to keep everyone’s energy up throughout the day. Keep it classy with snacks that fit with your wedding theme. For outdoor summer weddings, we love Italian Summer Figs filled with Mascarpone Cheese and wrapped in Prosciutto, Kaffir Lime Chicken Spoons, and Lemon Curd Tartlets garnished with fresh seasonal Berries (yummy photos below!) When it comes to summertime, unfussy, bite-sized morsels reign supreme.
You can order these wedding bites for pickup, or we can drop off an assortment of no-fuss hor d’oeuvres for you to enjoy at your leisure. If you opt for the full-service experience, we we’ll take care of everything from set-up through to tear down and clean up, freeing up time for you to focus on more important tasks at hand, like marrying the love of your life!
If you’ve chosen to have a signature cocktail for your reception, a round or two of this drink in shooter glasses is a way to literally give a taste of what’s to come, while also helping to ease wedding jitters. We can provide suggestions for hors d’oeuvres that complement the flavours of your signature cocktail too.
