For passed apps I’d pick: 

Ricotta and fruit on a crostini

Mini muffins

Something with cream cheese?? 

If you’re following up with a brunch you can serve messier items like scrambled eggs & pancakes or waffles then. Sounds lovely, I was just saying in another thread how much I love brunch weddings.

Mini quiches would be tasty and you could do a variety of flavors. 

Bacon wrapped dates are delicious. 

I’d probably do a cheese and fruit and charcuterie board thing, if you’ll serve any app stations instead of passed apps. 

Mini crab cakes might be good for brunch too.

Chorizos al vino! I didn’t know how to say it in English, but Google tells me it’s wine braised Spanish sausage:

Though not food, how about some Sangría? Since you’re marrying during the Summer, it would be such a refreshing drink!

Personally I would leave the pancakes & waffles for the sit down brunch when there is a plate and napkin for syrup/butter spills. I think mini avocado toast would be popular, mini lox and cream cheese bagels, mini biscuit with jam, blackberry/ricotta crostini, fruit/cheese, muffins all sound yummy and easy to eat

Honestly at 10:30 am if I’m about to eat brunch all I want is light stuff.

Fruit (on a skewer, perhaps?), Cheese (also on skewers I guess), simple stuff like that.  Crab cakes also seem brunchy to me and I’m always down for some crab cake hehe.  pP said lox on a minute bagel and also always down for that. Or shrimpies. 

I agree with a pp that nothing messy is necessary since they will be able to eat that shortly.

If you like skewer idea, you can make tiny skewers (toothpick sized), and alternate several different pieces on one, for example 

– ham roll stuffed with cream cheese/cucumber

– brie/fruit 

– mozzrella ball/cockail  tomato/basil leaf 

Basically anything that can be cut up into small cube-like shapes or rolled  and skewered. 

Tiny pieces of toast, different kinds of cheeses, olives, bell peppers, cucumbers, cocktail tomato, etc

For inspiration ou can look at photos here

ETA: you can even incorporate eggs in the skewers, either the whole tiny quail eggs, or pieces of chicken eggs. Below photos of mini skewers with eggs

I’ve been drooling over your brunch wedding all day. 🤤

you could also do mini shrimp and grits shooters. We had shrimp and grits at our wedding and it went over really well.
