Wedding Canapé Ideas of Your O’Neill Arms Wedding

The O Neill Arms Country House Hotel Wedding Packages

The O Neill Arms Country House Wedding, Antrim

As we are now in full swing of Wedding mode here at The O’Neill Arms Country House Hotel and our award-winning Arbutus Hospitality team are serving up canapés, like no other.

Canapés are such an in trend treat and we get asked for them quite a lot by our brides and grooms.

Feast your eyes on these mini food delights and serve your wedding guests some tasty treats. Whether you’re a passionate foodie, or you want everything on your wedding day to look wonderful, serving amazing canapés is sure to impress your guests – and tickle their taste buds!

Canapés are also a brilliant way to stave off guests’ hunger pangs if there’s a significant gap between the ceremony and the wedding reception – and they go seriously well with a beautiful flute of champagne.

Canapés will most likely be the first thing your guests will have eaten since leaving home. All the more reason to make it delicately delicious and just enough to leave them excited for the main banquet to shortly follow.

On the basis that your drinks reception is around the standard mark of an hour and a half, a good rule of thumb is 3 – 5 canapés per person. We feel that this is a great amount to whet your guest’s appetite and get them anticipating what tasty delights are to follow
