    Sort of expanding on what you have, maybe try coming up with a “theme” if you will to the tasting party portion, even if it is unrelated to the rest of your wedding. Example: various types of dips (Chip and dip, veggies and dip, fruit with carmel dip) None of those need to be kept hot, and everyone loves dipping things.

    This sounds like a great idea, but I don’t see how it’s different from a cocktail hour/per-reception.

    @jenilynevette:  Ah, I see! My venue calls it pre-reception when there are no cocktails. :-p

    Little quiches, slices and finger sandwiches, falafel balls with tatziki or hommus, rice paper rolls, little tapas plates, brie and bacon mini muffins (or other savory muffins), goats cheese and onion tarts (or other flavours) and dessert style ones could be again slices or brownies or tarts and macaroons.

    “Tasting hour” sounds nice, and it sounds different.  Why aren’t you having cocktails, though?

    @jenilynevette:  Ahhh that makes more sense!  Yeah I think calling it a tasting hour is the best.

     

    I don’t think having a tasting hour means everyone has to mingle.

    @j_jaye:  

    Mmmmm! I love your proposed menu for the OP. Unfortunately, she said that the food would have to be served room temperature or cold — nothing that needs to be hot — so that would likely rule out some of those delicious suggestions.
