Hi ladies, Im getting married on september 15 and Im finalizing the timeline, since ill need time between the ceremony and recpetion Ive decided on doing something like cocktail hour. I say something like because we are having adry wedding, and I’m over my budget. I first didnt want this which is why my planning is so last minute, anyway… What can I serve? something simple and cheap. Also my mom and I will be making the food so I need fast.
Im open to suggestions and GO!

Crudite (celery sticks, baby carrots, radishes) with dipping sauces (e.g. ranch, hummus). To make it fancy, try adding spice mixtures to the ranch or hummus.
Bruschetta. Toasted crostinis with chopped tomatoes + basil + EVOO + onion.
Spinach/artichoke dip with crackers/bread rounds/toast points.
Grilled/roasted vegetables – bell peppers, eggplants, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc. with vinegarette.
One-bite caprese salad. One mozarella ball + one cherry tomato + a basil leaf on a tiny skewer and drizzle with balsamic vinegar + EVOO.

@lilbluebird: Very good suggestions. Cheese & crackers are good, too. Is this morning/afternoon/evening? For drinks, you could have infused waters (citrus, cucumber, etc.) and some tasty nonalcoholic drinks like shirley temples and italian sodas.
