    @erinbacher:  Do you have a caterer? I’d ask them about what appetizer options they offer.

    We are doing the same thing. Ceremony at 1pm and finger foods and cake afterwards. My grandmother, aunt, mom and I are all doing the baking. Wanting to do sweet breads and muffins as well as fruit and veggie platters. Hopefully that helps!

    If you’re not going to serve a meal, please inform your guests.  With a timeline like that, I would assume there’d be a meal.  So, I’d be shocked and probably would go hungry.  I’d want to know beforehand so I could get myself some lunch.  Always make decisions for your wedding with the guests in mind.  Happy guests = great wedding.

    @erinbacher:  Sounds good.  If you have a website, adding a little blurb there might be a good idea too.  ๐Ÿ™‚
