We had a very small wedding so a very small cocktail hour so we just had homemade potato chips with blue cheese and scallions and mini crab cakes with black bean and avocado salsa.  It was absolutely delicious and everyone raved about it.

@MrsMaine: My caterer suggested it and I was SOLD. Bacon = amazing. Bacon wrapped dates = even MORE amazing.

We are serving cheeses, breads, home made dips, antipasto platter, nuts, fruit and veggie platters, smoked salmon something, and prawns. Our reception is a cocktail lunch so all the more substantial and impressive stuff will be save for later (ie. when I am there to eat it!).

Nadda, its too expensive. We’re can only have food catered by the venue and they charge minimum of 4$ per person, so thats about $500 after tax and gratuity NO THANK YOU. It’ll be about 5pm so they can wait an hour for dinner. I did, however, want to serve fruit kebabs!

Yum! Nice choices, everyone! We’re doing an antipasto station in honor of my Italian heritage:

Prosciutto, Fra’Mani salumi, focaccia, breadsticks, olives, fresh mozzarella, grilled eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, grilled portabella mushrooms, and marinated artichoke hearts.
