When Buckingham Palace throws a royal wedding reception it's not always a sit down affair. Instead, after their wedding on April 29, the by then former Kate Middleton and her new husband, Prince William will host a reception for 600 of their closest friends serving 10,000 different kinds of hot or cold canapes. While Kate and Prince William had some say in the canapes served, the queen herself oversaw most of the menu. While the planning and wedding day logistics of this boggle my mind, obviously Buckingham Palace is used to entertaining on a far grander scale!
So if you're planning a wedding and looking for an option to the usual buffet or sit down dinner, why not follow the royals and have a canape reception for hundreds of your closest friends! (hmm...do I have hundreds of close friends? Well I guess my wedding guest list will be a little shorter than theirs!) Not to mention I would not be serving 10,000 different canapes!
