The cost of food at a wedding can truly be astronomical. However, it does not have to be. There are many ways to cut the cost of wedding food without sacrificing the quality of fare offered. One way may be to offer finger foods in lieu of a large extravagant meal. Wedding catering companies often will have a list of available finger food options for their clients to choose from and some wedding catering companies even accommodate special requests or themed menu item demands. Additionally, depending on the time of day the bride and groom may even be able to get away with simply only offering finger food options. In this case, say the wedding is held mid to late afternoon – the bride and groom can simply print on the invitations something along the lines of, “hor doeuvres with reception to follow.” This way, guests will know what to expect and can plan accordingly.
