1. Salad Luncheon and Reception
If you plan to hold your wedding in the late morning, it is a nice and cheap idea to provide a fabulous salad luncheon. It is a lot cheaper than providing a sit-down meal. The great thing about this idea is that you can offer varieties of salad dishes with salad dressings, breads, and fruits.
2. Party/Deli Trays Reception - Hors d'oeuvres Reception
This special wedding event is best held between 11 in the morning and 5 in the afternoon or after a wedding held in the evening. You should provide light finger foods such as vegetable and fruit platters, crackers, and chips and dips. You may also provide more important foods such as cheese trays, meat, shrimp cocktails, oysters, egg rolls, and chicken wings and other canapés.
3. Dessert Party or Decadent Dessert Reception
This is appropriately held between 1 and 4 in the afternoon and after a wedding held in the evening. You should serve an extensive variety of sweet and rich desserts and beverages like tea and coffee. At Crave Catering a list of sweet canapés also provides a decadent array of choices.
4. Cake and Punch Reception
As long as your wedding reception is during the meal time, it is okay to serve cake for your guests. You can have either a simple or sophisticated cake and punch reception. Your wedding should be planned in the mid morning, in the afternoon, or even after a wedding held in the evening. You should also keep in mind to inform all your guests prior to the wedding that they won’t have the benefits of a full meal.
