Hors d'oeuvres: How many per guest?

Recommended Posts

I have to decide on my menu soon and I totally forgot (and didn't budget for) the cocktail hour! Our cocktail hour will be from 5-6 (while the bride/groom take pictures) and dinner will be from 6-7:30. How many passed hors d'oeuvres should I order per guest? I read somewhere we should have 3 types of hors d'oeuvres and estimate 1 piece per guest for every 15 minutes....does this sound right?

Oh this is a tough one for me... I have all of 2 weeks left and never thought of it till you said something. Is your resort asking for this.. and wants to know by piece?? We had a flat rate of $20 per person for this. I just had to check my folder cuz I was a bit lost on this detail. Sorry not much of help but how many people are you expecting?? Is it going to be butlered or self servehuh.gif

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
