Cake Canapes too much??
Hi all, this is my first post.
We have had the wedding booked for about 4 weeks now & steaming on with planning. Mostly gathering ideas at this point. We have all the "main bits" booked.
We got a package with venue so our wedding breakfast is all sorted, though we havn't yet chosen the meal options. Its 3 courses, with coffee & chocolates at the end, so 4 courses if you like?
Our ceremony is at 1pm with the meal being served at 3.30pm. So potentially looking at 2hrs inbetween. We have a drinks package, where all guests get one drink after the ceremony - chosing a prosecco.
We are wondering weather or not to go with canapes. Having looked at other posts on here, i don't think that they are too expensive, at first i thought it was a lot of extra unneccessary money. At £5.95 per person (60persons) we would be looking at £357.
I have had the idea of doing a mini kind of afternoon tea (but just cake) as this is something H2B and I enjoy together often. A little display of cute china tea cups, flowers and miniture cakes (sister would bake them for us). We could do this at the end of the drinks table, opposite a roaring fire. People could have the choice of prossecco or tea, (some family members are non drinkers anyway) with a couple of little cakes each, some mini cupcakes with swirly iceing, mini chocolate cakes, carrot cake, then maybe some mini biscuits or fruit tarts.
Had feedback from one family member that serving cake before a 4 course meal is silly, but they would be very small & its just nibbles, not like going into a cafe and having a full slab of cake.
I could personally eat cake ANYTIME. but then again, thats why im on slimming world ha ha!
What does everyone think?
