Reception Ideas

Cocktail hour food

Hey everyone!  We will be having an outdoor cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception.  We are having a lodge wedding, and storage space is at a bit of a premium.  My bartender suggested to me having one type of snack in a variety of forms (ie: just cookies, but lots of different kinds... but not dessert-y), to keep set up and serving simple, and something that we wouldn't have to refrigerate.  Any suggestions on what we could serve??

    Just cookies?  What about people who don't like sweets? 
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

  • No, sorry... I don't want to do cookies, I just couldn't think of another example.  Something savoury and snacky, I was thinking.

  • Multiple kinds of gourment snack mix?  You could have sweet, savory, spicy, etc.

  • Thanks ladies!  Actually my bartender suggested different kinds of nuts... I like the snack mix too.  Maybe a browsing session at Costco is in order!

    Keep in mind that a lot of people are allergic to nuts so I would add something without nuts like the snack mix.
  • Agree with nuts and snack mixes (including some nut-free snacks) ... maybe also consider a popcorn bar?  Have paper cones or small bags for guests to scoop the popcorn (or the nuts/snack mix, for that matter) into.
