@Peony007:  I’ve been to all kinds of weddings and seen all kinds of appetizers. I think as long as you have enough food at the station, it’s fine. the only problem I see is that it might get really congested around the table…maybe try to split them up so that people dont all congregate at the same place.

I guess it’s okay.  When I think of a formal reception, I think of white-gloved butler passed hors d’ouevres.  If it’s out of the budget though, it’s out of the budget.  You’re providing for your guests, and that’s all that really matters.

I don’t see anything wrong with those, but I wouldn’t consider that formal or really apps. It’s really a cheese and fruit table. That being said,  it’s what’s you can afford so just go with it. I wouldn’t call it formal though, As your guests will Probably be expecting a more substantial app during cocktail hour. We are having a full open bar with crab dip, buffalo shrimp, mini chicken cordon bleu, and seared ahi tuna.

We had a formal wedding. While we did have a few passed apps, I’ve been to other “formal” wedding that didn’t and I don’t think anyone really cared. As long as there’s some kind of food, that’s all that matters.

I kinda feel the same way as Abbie017? To me “formal” means passed apps. Definitely having enough of whatever kind of food you serve is most important. I think as log as you and Fiance are happy, it works!
