Bridal Shower Food
Tasty, quick and easy!
Bridal shower food must be easy to eat. Why?
Because most wedding showers are parties held at home where the aim is for guests to move around,
interact and talk with the bride.
You can't do that sitting down at a table so party food needs to be easy to eat.
Give guests finger buffet food like appetizers, tasty dips, light soups in a cup and oh so sweet bridal shower cakes like these
yummy white chocolate cookies.
And if you are planning to make your own wedding cake, use the opportunity to practice making
cupcake wedding cakes!
Bridal Shower Recipes
Need some ideas on what food to serve at your bridal shower?
Healthy dips and fresh vegetables: Add an eastern influence with a tasty array
of hummus (chickpea dip), tahini (sesame seed dip), aubergine or cauliflower dip.
Make them light and
low calorie by using natural yoghurt instead of heavy cream.
Asian appetizers: How about light prawn toasts, crispy wontons with spicy ginger and soy dipping sauce or
mini thai fishcakes?
Homemade bridal shower cakes: Try carrot cake
(also great as an alternative wedding cake recipe!), ginger sponge or miniature wedding cupcakes.
And don't forget a plate of gooey chocolate cookies which are sure to get guests at the wedding shower
chatting. Ask them for their favorite recipe for chocolate cookies and compare notes.
It's a sure way to your man's heart too once you are married!
Arrange food buffet style on tables that guests can walk around, chatting as they go.
Or give bridesmaids "waitress" duty tasks to ensure guests are well fed and watered during the party.
Don't forget to organize enough chairs for everyone to sit on when the bride opens her gifts!
More Bridal Shower Food Ideas
It's traditional for the maid of honor to organise and often pay for the bridal shower.
Planning of party games, laying out the venue, sending invitations and ensuring invitees all have wedding lists is a headache
in itself so planning the bridal shower food is sometimes better left to a professional.
Before doing that, check with the bridesmaids and a few close friends who can cook what. You may be
surprised at the culinary skills available and don't forget all bridesmaids have a mum
at home with lots of experience in the kitchen!
Check out prices for finger buffet food per head before committing to a mass DIY cook out.
You may save money going the DIY route but if you are too busy to organize everyone's finger food recipes, this could be a time when money is well spent.
