Planning a wedding is not a simple matter of checking off items on a list. When handled with the proper care, this can– and should– be one of the most personal, intimate days of a person’s life! Just as the ceremony itself should reflect the culture, values, and history of the couple, so should the reception menu (starting with the appetizers).
While professional guidance can be priceless, a few well-chosen, homemade menu items can go a long way in adding a special, personalized touch to your wedding appetizer table. Fill your table with a unique combination of family treats and main dishes with vegan catering that cares!
City Roots prides itself on helping couples all across this great city celebrate their union in the healthiest, most delicious way possible. Read on to learn some amazing ways you can customize your wedding appetizer table, and reach out to plan the rest of your spectacular vegan menu.

The key to a smooth transition between the ceremony and reception is an appropriately organized wedding appetizer table. As guests file in, encourage them to immediately take part in the festivities as they sample savory, bite-sized snacks and catch up with loved ones.
As the introduction to your reception, your appetizers play a vital role in setting the tone for your event. By mixing your favorite recipes with a full spread, you provide more than a conversation starter; you add a personal element, showing the crowd the depth of your appreciation for their participation in your day.
Regardless of whether you’re hoping for a low-key, relaxed get-together or the most sophisticated party of the year, find inspiration for your wedding appetizer table with help from City Roots!
