Five Sea-inspired apps to serve at your reception

A raw bar is a fantastic idea for your wedding reception, especially if you are getting hitched on the Cape where they couldn't be fresher.

Getting married on Cape Cod is a great opportunity to bring a nautical theme to your wedding day. From the colors you use to your centerpieces to wedding favors, there are plenty of things you can do to add a Cape Cod flair to your special day.

Another great idea is to serve up some dishes to your guests that reflect the seafaring nature of the Cape. Here are some suggestions to discuss with your caterer (your caterer will probably be able to suggest unique twists to favorite dishes that will really make them stand-out to your guests).

  1. Raw Bar - Your caterer might have their own shucker on staff, but if not, they will know where to find one. Not only are raw bars very popular, but raw shellfish is a rumored aphrodisiac!
  2. Clams Casino - This is a great dish for guests who like their seafood a bit more on the cooked side.
  3. Oysters Rockefeller - Another seafood appetizer served up hot rather than cold, oysters Rockefeller are truly delightful.
  4. Ahi Tuna - Consider this delicious delicacy in a variety of ways: bites, wontons, even Bruschetta.
  5. Seafood-Stuffed Mushrooms - While the mushrooms may not come from the sea, make sure the filling does! Popular items to stuff mushrooms with include crab, lobster, and shrimp or a combination of all three.
