    @MissLibra:  Well if I was a guest at your wedding I would LOVE to eat the red wine deglazed pesto tiger prawns, the prosciutto wrapped asiago and grilled asparagus, the Satay Chicken skewers or the Satay Beef skewers. These to me are all light but still satisfying, while giving me some good options and it wouldn’t ruin my appetite for dinner.  🙂

    @MissLibra:  I can’t possibly choose out of those options, if I was a guest I would try one of all of those! 🙂

    @MissLibra:  The chicken skewer would be my favorite (I can only eat poultry mostly meat wise weird stomach issues haha) and my FI would drool over and then eat all of the bavarian sausage!!! They also sound scrumptious though!

    I only chose 3, but I really had a hard time deciding. The asparagus, stuffed tomatoes, risotto balls, phyllo pears, and stuffed dates all sound divine!

    @MissLibra:  Also I would use the idea of # of guests x 3 apps per 30 minutes x 3 (to make 90 minutes) so I would say the minimum would be about 540 pieces of food divided among the types however you like. Selection wise I would say if you did like 110 pieces of 5 things that would work!

    I think ordering between 3-6 different types should be fine. I would eat all of those options, but I’d be most excited about the baked gorgonzola and wild mushroom risotto balls with romesco, the red wine prawns, bacon wrapped dates, phyllo with pear and gorgonzola, and either type of the satay skewers. Yum!

    Will there be tables for guests to seat and eat.  The reason I ask is because a lot of wedding cocktail hours I have been to do not have enough seating for guests.  I find it hard to hold a purse, a cocktail, a plate and eat all at the same time.  If there is not going to be a lot of seating available, then I would suggest sticking to those appetizers that do not need two hands to eat or anything that involves cutting.

    @MissLibra: 

    I probably could have chosen all of them.. drooling!!
    I chose BBQ meatball, bravarian sausage, smoked salmon and procuitto wrapped asparagus. I think having the meatball and/or sausage can help it feel more relaxed and not pretentious. Myabe it’s pretentious but smoked salmon is is just so effing delicious.

    PS- your venue sounds amazing!! Like exactly what I was looking for in a venue. If you don’t mind me asking, where is this?

    I think having 4-5 pieces per gust would be plenty.

    That was hard!

    I picked the prawns (love!) and the gorgonzola/mushroom risotto balls and the Bavarian sausage.  I LOVE German food and beer so I had to go with it!  Yummy!

    @MissLibra:   I would allow 5-6 pieces per person over the 90 minutes but I would imagine your caterer could give you a better idea 🙂

    @MissLibra:  No problem. Well, I had 150 guests at my wedding and I served 6 Different apps. I would say that since your only having 60 guests doing 3 apps or even 2 would be enough.
