Food and Cakes

Bridal/Wedding Shower Menu

I would like it if someone would please tell me about what you did for a menu for your bridal/wedding shower. I am in the middle of planning mine and am stumped on food. I'm going to have about 100 guests, all ranging from ages 18 - 60, and my biggest problem is, I'm on a very tight budget. I'm thinking I should do a do a variety of different types of foods to suit everyones individual pallets. Any ideas?

  • You shouldn't host your own shower.  Are you hosting this for someone else, or yourself?

  • 100 is a LOT of people, and you will probably end up spending a lot no matter what you do.
    You should have it around 2pm, which is a standard time to not have to provide a meal for people.
    If you have a cake or cupcakes, the rest of the meal can be simple salty foods to snack on, like pretzels, chips, etc. You are still going to go through a lot of food, though.
  • I also second about not throwing your own shower.

    For that many people have it at during a non-meal time (2 or 3pm).  This way you can just have apps and/or cake and punch.  This will help cut down food costs considerably.

    I third about not throwing your own shower.  And I hope that the 100 people coming to this shower are also invited to the wedding.

    Why are you planning your own shower?
  • Check out this link for some great menu ideas. We did the cake pops in our wedding color and the candy buffet which was a huge hit! http://www.celebrationideasonline.com/bridal-shower-menu.html http://www.celebrationideasonline.com/candy-buffet.html

    Yeah, don't host your own shower.  If it's for someone else, have it at 2 pm, serve cake, a fruit tray, veggie tray, and other small, bite size items (dips, etc.).
