Bride and Groom Box
We know that the day of your wedding will be one of the most important, happiest, but also busiest days of your life. Many brides and grooms don’t eat properly that day thinking they will ‘catch up’ at the reception. Unfortunately, that rarely happens unless the reception is a dinner buffet (where the Bride & Groom usually go down the line first). For an Hors D’oeuvres reception, by the time they have taken pictures, greeted all the guests, cut the cake, and had their 1st dance most of the Hors D’oeuvres are gone or it’s then time to make their getaway. Because of this, we offer a Bride and Groom Box. For a fee of $20 (to cover the cost of the Styrofoam cooler and containers) we will pack a sample of all your Hors D’oeuvres for you to take with you and enjoy as you relax on your first night as husband and wife. Just ask us to include this special item on your invoice. (Please note that this is not “extra” food – it will be taken from the Hors D’oeuvres ordered. If you are wanting us to pack dinners for you, please allow 2 extra dinners when ordering)
We are often asked if we provide decorations for the food tables. Since most brides have purchased special decorations to make their wedding reception unique, we usually ask that (when finished decorating the guest tables) they set a few of the decorations aside for us to use. This way the food tables will match the guest tables. If, however, you do need us to decorate the food tables, we have silver beads and sea shells we can use. Just let us know ahead of time your preference.
Cake Plates and Forks
Please note that most bakeries do not provide the plates & forks for your wedding cake (and some do not provide the box for the cake top). We suggest checking with them when you order your cake – we can supply you with a clear plate and fork for 30 cents per person, however, we will not have these with us unless you let us know ahead of time that you want this added to your invoice.
