It All Depends on the Party

What bridal shower food you serve will largely depend on the type of party you’re throwing and the time of day the party is being held.

If you’re throwing the bridal shower at a ritzy restaurant at dinnertime, of course dinner is going to be expected. However, if you’re throwing the party at your home in between lunch and dinner, finger foods should do just fine.

When Dinner Is Called For

If you are throwing a party and the time of day calls for dinner or lunch, chicken dishes are usually inexpensive and easy bridal shower food dishes to prepare. However, it’s always a good idea to give the guests a choice from at least two main courses.

Fun Finger Foods

If finger foods are enough to suffice, try mixing it up. Finger sandwiches are a given. Almost every bridal shower party that serves bridal shower food has finger sandwiches.

Try to liven it up by serving sushi or other exotic delicacies. The more unique the bridal shower food menu, the more memorable the party will be.


Cake is a must – there’s no two ways around it. However, try having a dessert table in addition to the bridal shower cake. Having an array of sweets in your bridal shower food lineup is sure to impress those with a sweet tooth.

No matter what bridal shower food you serve at your wedding, as long as there’s a variety of choices to suite everyone’s varying tastes, the menu should be a hit.
