Canapes should be served with Welcome Drinks, to stave off hunger pangs between Ceremony ending and Wedding Breakfast banquet commencing.
Your guests will be hungry after the Ceremony, which typically takes place around the time most people have their Lunch. Welcome Drinks are served after the Ceremony, but as you will know from studying the Wedding Day Schedule, you need to allow around 2 hours for the Wedding Photographs, after the Wedding Ceremony.
This means it will be 2-3 hours after their normal lunch time that your guests will be able to sit down to dine. The Wedding Breakfast Banquet normally starts around 4 pm, by which time your guests could be getting very hungry. While some snacks may be bought at the bar, these are really only small chocolate bars and cakes etc, as we do not serve lunches ahead of your Banquet.
We recommend all Brides offer Canapes with their Welcome Drinks. It is entirely optional but we know this nicely complements the Wedding Drinks display in the Nicolini Lounge. Not only will you have your welcome drinks on display, maybe arranged to spell your initials, but you will also have a lovely table of Canapes for guests to help themselves to with their drinks. This will stave off their initial hunger pains for a while, without filling them up too much ahead of your Wedding Banquet.
