My wedding is a little of two months away and I keep worrying about if I have enough food. Is or did anyone else go through this?
I feel silly, but I’m in need of some advice. Do you think this is enough? Should I add anything else? ( See below)
Cocktail Hour –
Chicken or Fish
Thanks so much ladies and happy planning =)

Have you thought about having actual food at the cocktail hour instead of just sweets? I know that filling up on sugar wouldn’t really do it for me that close to dinner. Def looks like enough food, though!

@crayfish: I agree- cocktails and sweets don’t really go together for me. I’d prefer a canape over a cookie!

@crayfish: I have thought of doing some fruit, crackers, and bread that the facility offers. It’s just more money that I really don’t have. You know what I mean? Thank you for the advice though, I may cut the candy and do that instead. =)

Definitely cut the candy/sweet for cocktail hour and replace it with real food. Drinking + candy probably isn’t a great mix.

I would nix the cookie and candy bar, and replace it with appetizers.

Please cut the candy and cookies at cocktail hour and replace them with something savory – it can be as simple as cheese and crackers. Sweets and alcohol, on an empty stomach, do not mix.

I’d prefer cheese and crackers and/or some veggies and dip for the cocktail hour, instead of candy and cookies. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but I rather have salty snacks with my drinks.

You are definitely NOT alone, worrying about “is this enough food”! I went through a heck of a time finalizing my menu.
that said, I’ll just chime in and agree that I don’t think a cookie and candy bar is appropriate for the cocktail hour. Since I just went through this, I’ll tell you that platters and displays like cheese boards with bread and crackers, veggies and dips, etc. cost less and you are likely to get more bang for your buck than passed appys and little hors d’oeuvres.

Definitely swap the cookes and candy during cocktail hour for some real food.
