Never, ever would have thought of the shrimp and grits in a glass! I think it could be neat though!

I like the idea of a mini meal in a martini glass! I am totally stealing this idea!

I hope I get out by May 2013 for my wedding…

If you are doing hors d’ouevres only and your reception is near or during a meal time, you need to serve enough hors d’ouevres that people won’t feel the need to eat dinner afterwards. I think shrimp and grits is a great option, and I know mashed potato bars (with them served in martini glasses too) is popular. Make sure you have at least one quality vegetarian option that isn’t just an afterthough (like, oh, we can just noy put the shrimp on a serving of grits). I’d serve 4 or 5 different aps with 2 or each per person (if they are all as generous as you are talking about) and then have a full display or fruits, veggies, cheese, breads, and crackers.
