We are doing 4pieces per person total for our cocktail hour (1 piece x 4 different apps). Our venue suggested 3-4pp for an hour period. The last wedding I went to had 3 different apps and we each got one of each kind as the servers came by and I thought it was plenty good with the open bar and everything. 

So I would say between 33 dozen and 44 dozen pieces total if you are doing an hour. Either you can do that or some combination of passed and platters of food if you venue offers that.
