Love at First Bite

Who doesn’t love bite-sized food? You don’t need a fork, you don’t need to sit down and you can taste a variety of yummy foods without loosening your belt too much. Bite-sized food is emerging as a new trend, even at weddings. More and more brides are shaking off traditional notions and making choices that let their personalities shine.

Bite-sized food started making a name for itself when it comes to the wedding dessert. Cupcakes and mini pies are replacing traditional wedding cakes.

Try a candy apple bar for fall. Put out fresh apples and let guests dip them in caramel, chocolate and piles of scrumptious toppings.

For an outdoor wedding, a do-it yourself s’mores bar will delight guests. Simply set out graham crackers, different types of chocolate, coconut and marshmallows. Other do it yourself bars include a sundae bar, a cookie bar or a hot chocolate bar. Whip cream and weddings? Yes, please.

When it comes to hot food appetizers during cocktail hour, bite-size is nothing new. But now the main course is following in the appetizer’s tiny footsteps. A do-it yourself dinner bar can be a great choice and you can customize it to what you like. Salad bars and baked potato bars can offer up dozens of delicious toppings for your guests to choose from.

If you like the idea of bite-sized foods but want to hire a professional. Consider making grilled cheese your go-to food. Pasadena’s own Melt It! recently catered a wedding with their delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. Guests are sure to love variations of the classic favorite. It was love at first bite.

Melt It! is located at 105 N. Hill Ave. Suite 103 in Pasadena. Call (626) 793-7002 or visit www.aGrilledCheeseCo.com for more catering options.
