What did you serve at your cocktail hour or if you had a coctail reception? Was there anything that your guests loved? What has been your favorite at weddings you have attened? We are meeting with the caterer in a few weeks and need some ideas! We kind of want something different, but we are open to anything!

The old standby of cheeses, fruits, and veggies alwasys seem to be a hit. For a more “upscale” take on this you can do exotic cheeses or something.
Your caterer probably has a list of apps or would be able to tell you the most common ones.

gourmet mini burgers. A huge hit every time.

One thing that I am requiring we have at our cocktail hour is bacon wrapped dates. They are DELICIOUS and a little bit exotic.
Other hits usually are anything that’s a mini of a meal (i.e. mini quesadillas, mini burgers, pigs in blankets).
Also crabcakes or mini quiches.
Something cooler like a small cup of tomato gaspacho with a corn fritter on top could be good too.

we had chicken wontons with sweet chili sauce, bacon wrapped shrimp with basil and fried green tomatoes pimento grilled cheese mini sandwiches! They were all a huge hit!

We had a cocktail and canapés reception. This was our menu;
Pan-fried scallops in garlic butter and herb sauce
Mini fish and chips
Crab and chive tarts
Mini roast beef on Yorkshire puddings with horseradish sauce
Spring rolls with spicy dipping sauce
Goats cheese tarts with poppyseed mousse
Hope that helps! The big hits were definitely the scallops, fish and chips and roast beef.
