Canapes: The Perfect Appetizer

Keeping your guests well-fed on your wedding day is up there with ‘finding the perfect dress’ and ‘booking the perfect photographer’ on a wedding to-do list, and we have the ideal appetizers for you!

Guests will have likely had their breakfast nice and early leaving enough time to beautify ready for your special day, most of our guests travel over an hour to attend weddings, arriving around 1pm for the welcome drinks.

Ceremonies often take place at either 1:30pm or 2pm lasting until 2:30pm, (a time most guests would have already had their lunch) and wedding breakfasts don’t tend to take place until after 4pm, this is a lengthy time for guests to have not eaten, especially when enjoying a few drinks!

So, why not add Canapes to the menu to enjoy during the drinks reception?

Canapes are the perfect option for a snack in between the wedding nuptials, and a great sample of the deliciousness to come!
