Inexpensive Foods to Serve at Wedding Receptions That Seem Absolutely Indulgent

Foods served at a wedding reception don’t have to be expensive to turn heads and satisfy tummies.

Many wedding gurus say small bites and unexpected items sometimes are more memorable than a multi-course sit-down dinner. Adding champagne, beer and wine can elevate an event to a fun and tasty occasion.

Martha Stewart Weddings offers several wedding food ideas that are attractive and delicious. Among them cronuts, a sweet confection that combines a doughnut and a croissant; single meatballs topped with a whirl of spaghetti and dollop of sauce; and even grilled cheese points served on skewers atop tomato soup shooters.

Wedding Wire suggests a theme menu with items that can be served buffet style like a Mexican fajita spread where guests can create their favorite plates with tortillas, meats, veggies and sides like homemade guacamole. Others suggest a barbecue spread, set up buffet-style with meats and side dishes like comforting and gooey macaroni and cheese — often just the right touch of Southern comfort fare.

Some budget wedding planners say go with light-bite appetizers. These small help-yourself items go a long way to satisfying wedding-goers. With bowls of olives, plates of cheeses, crudites and dips, salads, nachos, fruit trays, and bread and sauces, the cost goes way down when compared to a full-on spread, according to Cheap-Wedding-Solutions.com. They're easy to arrange on nice service-wear and can still remain an elegant offering.
