@hartmamp:  You can ask the caterer/venue what they recommend. Are you doing meal after the appetizers? That definitely makes a difference in how many appetizers you’ll want. We had 144 passed appetizers (divided into 3 kinds) for 25 guests at our cocktail hour. There were leftovers. We did this with margaritas before the ceremony. After the ceremony we served more food.

If you’re serving a meal afterwards, I’d say plan on approximately 3 appetizers per person, since you’ll have the cheese, veggies, dip & bread, as well. If you’re not serving a meal afterwards, I’d say about 6 appetizers per person.
