Ever thought of serving appetizers differently at weddings instead of the tradition wedding menu’s?? The trend is catching up and couples are now laying more stress on presentation and service of food & beverage at Indian weddings. Here are some tips on how to serve cocktail snacks with a twist at your celebration!!
Creative garnishing and unique presentation of bite sized snacks will interest guests. Using uniquely shaped platters is another interesting concept. Also instead of just restricting to platters you can opt for edible spoons or plates (made out of fruit, vegetables etc) served on artistic acrylic platters instead of ceramic or silver platters. You could do welcome shooters instead of welcome drinks. These can be served in test tubes instead of glasses. In case you are serving rolls you could make them in smaller sizes and wrap them individually. Also you could serve fries in small brown paper cones with the design or initials of the couple on it. If you are serving barbequed food like tikkas the service personnel can carry small barbeques on salvers and serve the tikkas on individual bamboo skewers. Another great idea is to serve drinks from steel stand carriers instead of serving them on salvers.
Remember to keep the portions small so that guests can try more options yet leave space for the main feast. Depending on your theme you can add other elements. Like for an Indian theme function you could serve tea in glasses which the street side dhabas use but you could use painted glasses instead of plain transparent ones and you could carry them in the same stand which the street vendor uses. The tea can be served directly from an artistically painted kettle. We also suggest the use of personalized cocktail napkins with the names of the couple, the monogram and the wedding date.
