French Fries


For a winning combo, offer servings of french fries along with the sliders. These make a great late-night snack too after all the dancing.

We can thank Southern cooking for some of the best foods, just like this classic. Fried chicken and waffles add the right balance of savory and sweet to any menu.

These grilled cheese roll-ups paired with with tomato soup are the ultimate comfort food duo. As mess-free hors d’oeuvres, serve in shot glasses for easy dipping.

Homemade Biscuits


This might just be the coolest idea for a brunch wedding, bridal shower or rehearsal brinner (okay, enough with the alliteration). A homemade biscuit bar with assorted jams and gravy is the ultimate food station.

Donut Desserts


The donut craze has taken weddings by storm and we don’t expect it to slow down soon (hopefully not at all for that matter). You can opt for a creative donut wall, or take it up a notch with a nontraditional wedding cake.

Ice Cream Cones


Rivaling the adorable mini pies, these tiny ice cream cones are hard to resist. While they’re slightly messier than most of these options, they’re a great way to stay cool at a warm outdoor wedding reception.
