At Bradford Catered Events, we believe in weddings of all shapes and sizes. A couple’s wedding day reflects their intimate relationship and personality. Whether you’re staying traditional or looking to take a unique twist with your wedding day, we’re here to make whatever your dream may be come true.
When you book a catering for your reception, there’s more to consider and decide than the menu. From a caterer’s perspective, food can be served a number of ways. It can be served in a full-service meal or a buffet-style table. However, if you’re looking to keep the overall nature of your reception light and up-beat, you may want to consider a third option. An hors d’oeuvre-style dinner for your reception is a great way to foster an intimate and memorable day for you and your guests.
Set the Tone
Having an hors d’oeuvre-style dinner at your reception offers a tone to your reception that can’t be achieved from a traditional dining-style. With servers available to pass small-bites periodically throughout the reception, your guests will be able to mingle, dance or relax as they please.
Planning a sit-down dinner in the middle of a reception can interrupt the mood of the reception. If your friends and family are looking to tear up the dance floor all night, this is dining-style is definitely worth considering. Hors d’oeuvres allow guests to eat when they’re hungry without having to wait till dinner is served.
Please All Eaters
It’s impossible to please everyone, however offering hors d’oeuvres allows you to cater to dietary restrictions or picky eaters. Pick a variety of dishes with different flavors, yet are somehow complimentary with each other. Give your guests the chance to sample their classic, favorite dishes or something new.
At Bradford Catered Events, we have a whole menu dedicated to the tiny, delicious bites. Our culinary experts will help you decide a menu that will please even the pickiest of eaters. Give your guests a sample of familiar comfort foods like chicken and waffles, pigs-in-a-blanket or deviled eggs. Or mix it up with something new and flavorful like our cocktail chicken cordon bleu and bacon-wrapped scallops.
A Reception to Remember
As much as we love food, a catered dinner can dominate a reception or event. If you have you’re having a shorter, cocktail-style reception, passed hors d’oeuvres are a great way to make sure everyone gets fed without wasting time. Passed hors d’oeuvres means the party never has to stop, as your guests can eat while they dance. Finally, an itimacy is created at your reception that won’t be met by having your family and friends at assigned tables. Choose an hors d’oeuvres dinner for your reception, and no one will forget the love that is being celebrated on your big day.
