Searching for some ideas of potential appetizers to serve at your wedding? Here’s a post that is guaranteed to make your mouth water and your stomach grumble! Take a look at this collection of yummy wedding appetizers – don’t these look sooooo good!? I love all of the nibbles that caterers serve at weddings and these are definitely something to drool over!

 There are a lot of classic eats that you often see served on special occasions and events like a wedding – bruschetta, marinated olives, meatballs, mini quiches, stuffed mushrooms, tortellini bites, shrimp cocktail, mozzarella balls, chicken skewers and so on. It’s often good to have a few familiar staples for the pickier eaters in the group that like to eat things that they know and love. But I always get excited when I see something new and fun being served up! I like a little creativity from the chefs. Especially when they start combining unique flavors that you are often surprised and delighted by because they taste so GOOD together! Even if it’s just a unique twist on an old favorite.

Pear, prosciutto, goat cheese, and honey

I’ve seen some very creative couples go a step further and really create a wedding that involves the food – whether it’s to serve food that matches the theme or venue of the wedding (like sushi or thai or mexican) or even to have a cooking-inspired bridal shower where the food is more of a focal point. There are so many fun ideas out there to give you inspiration for your own special day!
