Is Finger Food Fashionable for Wedding Receptions?

Wedding receptions at Currumbin Waterside Events

Are you planning your wedding and interested in seeing what wedding reception package alternatives your wedding venue offers, as opposed to traditional sit down reception packages. If you’ve perused the wedding package and noticed the cocktail package you’re probably contemplating whether or not finger food is appropriate for your reception.

If you went back ten years ago serving finger food at your reception (besides on arrival) was considered totally inappropriate. Two or three course sit down meals, or even buffets were the expected fare at a wedding reception. Fast forward into the present and wedding receptions where a sit down meal isn’t served are becoming more and more popular.

Cocktail Receptions

Dubbed cocktail receptions, these wedding receptions don’t serve up the clichéd party pies and sausage rolls, but offer guests a myriad of delicious canapes, hors d’oeuvres, and antipasti treats to nibble on.

It’s the perfect solution for those guests who aren’t going to eat a whole meal, a cocktail style reception means guests can eat at their own pace, as they feel like it.

A cocktail reception makes it easy to keep guests happy as there is more for them to choose from. A sit down alternate drop meal is designed to keep the masses happy, but there is always going to be one or two guests who aren’t happy with what they’re served. Serving canapes, hors d’oeuvres and antipasti means guests have a large selection of options to choose from, making it much easier to keep everybody happy.

If you’re having a summer wedding, a cocktail reception is the perfect solution for those hot days and nights when you don’t feel like eating a heavy meal.

Cocktail style receptions can be altered to give a wedding reception a casual vibe, or a classy high end atmosphere, it all depends on what you serve and how you serve it. An experienced venue such as Waterside Events at Currumbin are experts in making sure the canapes, hors d’oeuvres and antipasti served suit the style of your reception.

Biggest Benefit of Cocktail Receptions

The biggest and most overlooked benefit of a cocktail reception is the opportunity it provides guests to mingle with each other. A sit down meal means guests are normally stuck at their table for most of the night. Sometimes this means that guests are stuck at a table where they hardly know anyone or with someone they don’t get along with. A cocktail reception means guests are free to move around all night and not tied to a table with people they’re not comfortable with.

So, not only are cocktail receptions becoming a very trendy alternative to traditional sit down receptions, there are many benefits to having a cocktail style reception.
