Finger food wedding menu

A finger food menu is desirable and attractive for several reasons, depending on a couple’s reception plans.

  • Cost: Generally speaking, a selection of finger foods – even gourmet hors d’oeuvres – will be less expensive than a fully catered meal. Couples can save even more they choose to make many of the finger foods themselves.
  • Formality: Finger foods can be suitable for either a formal or a casual wedding, depending on the exact menu selection. Cheese and crackers is great for a casual event, while more exotic pates may be best for a formal affair.
  • Timing: Finger foods are best for receptions that fall between regular meal times, such as late morning or early afternoon events.
  • Variety: By opting for small finger foods, a couple can offer a greater selection of culinary treats for their guests to sample, rather than selecting only two or three main dishes. This can be especially valuable for a large reception with many diverse tastes.

No matter why a couple may choose a wedding finger food reception, it is important that they let their guests know about type of food which will be served. If guests expect a full meal at a reception, and finding only finger foods it could turn out to be a bit frustrating. Hungry guests may even choose to leave the reception early in search of a full meal.
