Food is an important and exciting part of any wedding reception. The foods that you choose to serve your guests can be a delicious way to let your personality shine. To really show your creative side, you can't go wrong with delectable finger foods. Finger foods provide endless options, from classic, homespun comfort food for a casual party to sophisticated, elegant appetizers for a formal affair. For some inspiration, check out these wedding finger foods that will make you say, "I do" to the toothpick.

Comfort Food


Comfort food is nourishing and delicious, and your guests will be instantly drawn to the familiar flavors. Take the well-known standards and scale down the size, and you’ll have cute miniatures of your favorite dishes. Try the delicious sweet and salty combination of fried chicken and waffles, complete with a sweet bourbon glaze. Or feed your inner child with mini grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters.

Classic Combinations


A simple toothpick or skewer is all it takes to merge classic flavor combinations into one perfect bite. Consider Rachael Ray’s Caprese Antipasticks that feature fresh bocconcini, cherry tomatoes, basil and olive oil. Or try the classic, savory Thai flavors showcased in these Thai Satay Sticks served with a peanut sauce and fresh coriander.

Cost and Convenience


Finger foods allow you to offer your guests several options without breaking the bank. Buy in bulk with wholesale snacks from John Wm. Macy or grab a selection of seasonal fruits from your local farmer’s market. Guests love having options, so make sure there’s something at your wedding for all tastes.

Fun Meets Formal


If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, consider finger foods that take a classic recipe and elevate it in a new and sophisticated way. This is a fun way to experience your favorite foods in a different form, making them perfectly suited for your big day. The Borgata at Atlantic City has a recipe for miniature lobster corn dogs served on a stick alongside a Dijon mustard dipping sauce that can be a big hit at any event. For a classy take on a familiar snack, try Martha Stewart’s Sophisticated Fish Sticks.

Sweet Endings


Finger foods don’t have to end with the appetizers. Consider capping off the evening with some bite-sized desserts that won’t leave you feeling guilty about going back for seconds. Consider these gorgeous banana split bites that feature banana, strawberry, pineapple, chocolate and nuts. Or delight your guests with grilled strawberry shortcake skewers served with a cream cheese whip.

By featuring finger foods at your wedding, you and your guests will be able to enjoy a memorable variety of different flavors and textures, with options to satisfy every taste. Most importantly, you'll be sure that nobody will leave your wedding hungry.
