Wedding Hors d'oeuvres Ideas

Pretty little hors d'oevres and canapes create a real sense of party at your wedding reception.  Serve gorgeous food with mouth-watering taste and style and you're on your way to guests having one of the best parties of their lives, which is one of the main aims of your big day.  There are so many great ways to serve your canapes.  Here are our great ideas to incorporate into your wedding hors d'oeuvres menu.

Canapes do not have to be a starter - You may opt for a cocktail reception where your hors d'oeuvres become the main meal.  You can satifsfy your guests with many morsels of yummy canapes over many hours and the benefit of this type of menu is you will find selections to suit all manner of tastes and eating styles.  If you're serving hors d'oeuvres as the main meal, you will want a minimum of eight to ten choices and estimate that each guest will eat one or two from each selection.

Create canape tables for guests to select from - Buffet style canape selections look spectacular and can keep guest's hunger satisfied for longer cocktail receptions.  Create a buffet filled with your hors d'oeuvres selections and mount the platters at different levels for best effect.  Place a swag or garland at the front of the table and don't neglect table decorations in the theme and style of your wedding on the buffet table.

Hors d'oeuvres should be as decorative as they are yummy - When selecting your canapes keep in mind the style and theme of your event and you can enhance the theme of your wedding day with your food.  Choose green herb garnished hors d'oeuvres for a garden wedding and include bright seafood selections for a beach wedding.

Present your canapes on beautiful serving platters - Ask your caterer to show you the serving platters and plates they will use.  Ask if they have any platters to suit the theme.  We love big bamboo platters for Asian style weddings and white flat trays for formal celebrations.

Romance your hors d'oeuvres - Create a romantic canape selection by subtely including heart shapes in your hors d'oeuvres.  You can ask the caterer to cut the sandwiches into heart shaped wedges or serve the devilled eggs with heart shaped garnishes on top.

Include your classic family recipes - One of our favourite hors d'oeuvres ideas is to include some of your classic family recipes or favourites in the menu.  We loved the mini cheeseburgers served by a McDonalds franchise owner at his daughter's wedding, and the classic savoury muffins cooked with home grown spinach at a wedding we organised.
