What food and drink should be served?

It’s always a good idea to serve some type of refreshments at a bridal shower, although how formal or simple the menu is up to you and your budget. Some people choose to just serve appetizers or finger foods, while others choose to have the event catered or thrown at restaurant. Please note that it is assumed that the planner of the shower pays for the food, which includes picking up the tab at the restaurant you choose to go to. Most of the time, bridal showers are informal and the hostess serves food buffet style with dishes such as finger sandwiches, salad, pasta, and potato salad. It’s also a good idea to serve drinks like juice, wine, and ice tea. Remember to serve some type of dessert whether it is mini macaroons or a whole cake. Serving tea and coffee with dessert is a much appreciated touch.
