Tell guests that there will be some finger food for the wedding
Type in your invitations that snacks will be served for the wedding. It will be a nice surprise for the guests who will be invited, but it also helps to tell them that there will be served food before dinner later in the day. It would be a pity if a lot of food goes to waste because your guests have eaten a large brunch or lunch, just before they leave home, because they first plan to eat again for supper.
Opt-in or serving
You shall decide for yourselves whether you will have an opt-in, or whether you want something serving staff to walk around with platters and waiters for your customers. Choose to have the serving staff, must count on a little extra costs for their salary. Another minus by having serving staff can be that your customers will have to wait a bit to get offered food, since the waiters need to circulate among the guests. Plus by serving staff are continually being filled casks, and they can explain what it is that will be served. An opt-in is often an easier choice, both if you want to save money, but people also get a quick overview of what is on the table, and they can take it here and now. Minus point an opt-in is often that the table is not to come near, because there the whole time stand a flock of hungry guests.
There is a reason it is called finger foods and hapser
Wedding finger food or hors d’oeuvres are small for a reason. They must not fill much more than there is for a bite or two. It is supposed that the guest has a napkin or a very small cake plate, where there may be two to three pieces on. It is no use having standing guests for a wedding reception, which makes it impossible to use a knife and fork. In addition, keep in mind that it is in is only an appetizer for an upcoming dinner. Your guests must not eat himself too full in snacks for the wedding, they’ll just cover the worst hunger, so they do not feel painfully hungry before they go to the wedding dinner.
