I would love to hear suggestions too!  We also have limited means of keeping apps warm and are leaning towards simple appetizers.

kimberlystews:  Here is my take on appetizers….

  • should be able to eat any appetizer with one hand (no fork and knife necessary)
  • should be able to eat any appetizer with one-two bites
  • should not have any type of ingredient that can fall and stain a garment
  • have enough seating so that people can easily enjoy the food (not dealing with the balancing act of holding a plate, glass and purse)

I say all of this because I have been to many weddings where I had to juggle a plate, a glass and a purse.  Needless to say, holding three items can make eating dififcult.  Throw in food that requires a fork and knife and we are heading towards the impossible

Some food suggestions:

  • pieces of sushi
  • small crackers with cheese or a cheese spread
  • pigs in a blanket
  • anything on a skewer

kimberlystews:  californiabride2013 made really good points. How are the appetizers being served? Is this seated? Standing room only? My preference for appetizer selection varies completely on whether there is space/ability to use a fork/take multiple bites or if I have to stand, hold my purse and wine glass and a plate and somehow feed myself.
