Serving guests at a casual reception? Let them eat sandwiches!

Quiz time! What are the most important components of your wedding reception?

If you answered anything at all related to your guests’ comfort and enjoyment, you’re right on! Of course there are a handful of things that fall into that category, including some sort of shelter to keep their heads dry (or hey, if it’s gorgeous outside, under the stars is where it’s at!), some type of entertainment (doesn’t have to include dancing if that’s not your thing), something to wet their whistle (alcoholic or not), and something to keep their bellies full and happy.

As for that last bit, food is the common denominator of virtually all celebrations, the oldest method for thanking guests, and the true test of a gracious party host/ess, so having some of it is basically a requirement. What you serve, however, is entirely up to you.

In the U.S. it’s still most common for couples to serve a version of dinner to wedding guests, but brunches, heavy appetizers, barbecue, food trucks, and plenty of other creative variations are trending. If your budget and/or personal style dictate an earlier or more casual event, go with it! The key to making your guests feel special is to make your decision a conscious one, infused with personality and even integrated into your overall event theme.
