Having a pass around meatball option is basically a no-brainer. And there are so many different ways that you can do it.

American classics for you afternoon “country chic” celebration or maybe some “Hawaiian” style bites for your beach destination wedding could work?

Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a classic finger food and starting bite. You can mix it up here too. Classic recipes are delish but you can add a spicy bite or even some bacon on top to level up the plate. This is also a great option if you’re planning to DIY your own wedding food as they’re super simple to whip up in the kitchen.

Baby Salads

We fell in love with some of the baby salad ideas that we stumbled upon. Small bowls with bite-sized silverware will help with the presentation. Then, just go with which salads delight your own taste buds. Greek or a classic wedge. You can even create a mix of greens topped with candied pecans, goat cheese, and champagne vinaigrette.

Shrimp Cocktail

Shrimp cocktail is another classic finger food and appetizer idea. Again, this is an easy option to go to that guests will love. But even more so, there are a lot of fun ways to present it. Even the pass around options with shot glasses filled with cocktail sauce look incredible!

Fried Mac & Cheese

You may not think that mac and cheese is a finger food at first glance, but when it’s fried it sure is! These tasty bites will be such a hit among the crowd. You can even serve them with a tad bit of marinara on top. They’ll go great with any of your signature cocktails – wine and cheese mix, right?

Tiny Tacos

Just like hamburgers, your tacos can be made to be tiny and finger food-acceptable in size. Beef, pulled pork, chicken, fish, or veggies, you pick the insides and then allow the catering staff to get creative with the presentation. Maybe you want some Mexican flair brought to the menu, this is the way to do it!

Chicken & Biscuits

Whether you’re having a brunch-time celebration or want a bit of comfort food in the mix for the evening, whatever the case, some chicken, and biscuits will turn any frown upside down in an instant. You may even want to serve some of the bites up with a little white gravy on the side. Or, make the chicken spicy to add some kick to the party.

Bruschetta

Bruschetta is another great option and a classic hors ‘d’oeuvre to add to the menu. But there are so many different variations to choose from. Think about guacamole, bacon and tomato – or the classic Italian mix with tomatoes, olive oil, and oregano – or you can infuse a bit of summertime by going with a strawberry and balsamic option.

Milk & Cookies

If you’re looking for a sweeter option, think about serving up some mini cookies and shots of milk. You can pass these around at the end of the night once the dancing has died down or just offer up a decadent treat for anyone who’s craving something from the desert table. It’s a great nod for all of the kiddos attending as well.

Caprese

Caprese bites work out well too. They look beautiful on the plates and also offer up a really yummy bite with all its flavors. Don’t forget the balsamic drizzle on top either, it’s essential for rounding out the entire dish.

Donuts

Donuts are another “finger food” that can offer up some sweetness during hors d’oeuvre hour. This is perfect for morning festivities! And offer up a host of different flavors. From classic to strawberry to chocolate with sprinkles, you can have a lot of fun with the menu here.

Chips & Dip

And finally, chips and dip – of any kind – are the perfect finger food. But, when it comes to a wedding, it’s all in how you present it. We’re loving this martini glass idea. Just make sure you have some extra crisps on standby to finish off the guac.
