How long is yoyr reception and when does your wedding start?


I think it’s generally recommended to have 4 appetizers per guest per hour, but that’s assuming it isn’t during mealtime. So if your reception is from 2-4pm, you would need 480 appetizers (120 of each type if you have 4 kinds) plus 1-2 cupcakes each.

If your reception was earlier, say it started at 1pm, I’d plan for even more food as many guests will not have eaten lunch.
