    My first wedding was at 2 p.m. on a Sunday.  I had heavy hors d’oeuvres and an open bar.  The food was AMAZING.  I specifically remember the artichoke hearts stuffed with goat cheese and the mini beef wellington. 

    The guests knew that I was not serving a meal at that time.  Unfortunately for his stuck up family they stopped and ate a huge lunch beforehand and were too full to eat any of the good stuff.  Oh well…that meant more food to be sent up to our room after the reception…

    Our wedding is at 7:30 p.m., so we’re having heavy comfort food appetizers. Our caterer did the same thing for one of our friends a couple of months ago, and we had PLENTY to eat and were able to mingle but re-visit the buffet for more food. I’m SO excited for our mac & cheese bites and good ole Memphis BBQ chicken skewers 🙂 We’re also having a few hot dips, mini twice baked potatoes, an antipasto platter, fruit & cheese platter, different varieties of sliders on yeast rolls, and milk shots w/ cookies since FIs fav treat is cookies and milk. I LOVE appetizer receptions 🙂
