Our favorite Butler-passed Appetizers

Adding a Cocktail hour to your event schedule before your Wedding Reception gives both guests and bridal party alike the chance to freshen up and relax following the ceremony, before the real fun begins. This is also a great opportunity to allow your guests to interact in an informal setting, with perhaps a signature cocktail being served. Many people also like to serve a little food, giving their guests a small snack to keep them going. It is important to remember, however, that guests will eat a full meal at the Reception, and so the food served prior should consist mainly of light, fun appetizers.
