Type of aperitif: sweet or savory?
In truth it is a little improper to talk about a sweet aperitif, it is more correct to speak of a sweet buffet and, therefore, we will use this differentiation. Starting from the assumption that the choice of a savory aperitif or a sweet buffet essentially depends on the subjective preference of the spouses , the choice usually falls on a sweet buffet, if you get married in the morning , and on a salty aperitif, if you get married in the evening . This is because usually the aperitifs tend to be more suitable in the evening hours as an advance of the dinner and are very consistent; sweet buffets, on the other hand, are less full-bodied because it offers more refreshments, as usually happens with weddings held in the morning. What do they expect? The sweet buffet usually includes sweets of small confectionery, cakes in single portions, almond paste sweets, confetti, granita, ice cream and a good sweet sparkling wine or brut, depending on your preference. The salty aperitif instead provides many more elements : mini sandwiches, mini hot dogs, delicatessen products, pizzas, mini-portion fries, pasta tastings, cold cuts, dairy products, fizzy drinks, water, sparkling wine. A little attention should be paid to your guests : for example, if an invited person suffers from diabetes , procure carbonated soft drinks without sugar; if instead someone suffers from celiac disease , get gluten-free products because every guest has the right to fully enjoy all the moments of the wedding.
