We had deli pinwheels, hot crap dip with dipping bread, spinach dip with sourdough bread, cheeses of various types, a fancy fruit set-up, coffee, punch, and of course wedding cake. We also had a casual pig roast the day after the wedding.

We’re having seafood (like shrimp cocktail/oysters on the half shell, but we’re on the harbor so of course we need seafood!), several dips, chicken skewers,  sliders,  a dessert & cookie bar and fruit, veggie and cheese displays, and some other things i don’t really remember…

I think the displays like fruit & veggies are fairly inexpensive but can be a big hit! I would definitely work some of those in.

we did our wedding very similarly. we planned for ~10 pieces per person of passed hor duerves and we also had displays (fruit, veggies, cheese, dessert) and the cake.

I went to a wedding like this and it was awesome.  they had very heavy appetizers, then the ceremony and then a very late dinner.  not sure if you’re doing dinner afterwards.  if not I’d go with heavier appetizers, (not just cheese and crab cakes).  The appetizers that are always big hits are minui versions of large food.  mini burgrs and fries, cups of mac and cheese, etc.  also I love sea food so we’ll have a sushi station.

I really like this set up too… I went to a wedding like this and it was really nice.  Do whatever appetizers you want.  As long as there’s a little variety everyone should be happy.

I love the reverse wedding idea! You can totally do whatever you want for appetizers.

We are having beef tenderloin medallions, coconut shrimp, spanakopita, baked brie with crackers/pita/fruit and possibly a fruit display for our cocktail hour, followed by dinner. But I agree heavy apps. as people will probably have a light dinner that night before coming.

If you are planning on people eating before they come then maybe you could do something with desserts or late night snack style apetizers? I am thinking something like little milkshake shooters, little brownie sundaes, mini sliders, soft pretzels with dip, nachos. 

I guess it depends on how casual you want to be.

Maybe some bacon-wrapped shrimp? We are doing mini-grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters and mini lobster rolls.

We’re doing a Tapas style reception with different types of cheeses and spreads and olives, etc. It’s pretty light though.

I would estimate at least 2 pieces of each item per person to make sure you dont run out of food.  Small bite items are the best way to go, something that will only take 1 or 2 bites that they dont need a fork or knife with (or if you do need a fork, still make it a small bite item)  @arizonebride – the mini grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters is awesome, I love that.

Here are some other ideas – small bits of filet on top of a roasted red pepper risotto cake, chicken saltimbocca on portabello ravioli, mini chicken & veggie pot pies, mini burgers, mac n cheese, etc.
