I am having a cocktail hour WITH passed appetizers right after our ceremony. I do have to preface this by saying we are having a non-resort wedding in Akumal, Mexico (in the Riviera Maya) ~ catered and coordinated by the owner of Turtle Bay Cafe.
Drinks served will include our signature drink (haven't decided on what it will be yet), margaritas, pina coladas, and limonada and ice tea for the kiddies and non-drinkers.
We had a hard time deciding what to have for appetizers as their entire menu was delicious!! But ultimately decided on fingerfoods that weren't too heavy and would keep our guests satisfied but still looking forward to dinner:
Our passed appetizers:
-- Sherried Mushroom Empanadas
-- Assorted Quesadillas (including brie and carmelized pecans, and cheese and chicken) with Tropical Fruit Salsa
-- Mini Crabcakes with roasted corn salsa & cilantro buerre Blanc
Stationary appetizers served with buffet dinner:
-- Lime Marinated Mixed Seafood Ceviche with Tortilla Chips
-- Fresh Guacamole with Salsa & Tortilla Chips
-- Assorted Fresh Fruit on Skewers
If you wanna have appetizers, then you should!! It seems odd that they would act like it was a strange request?!? But if you decide to have just strictly drinks that's ok too, but maybe something easy like chips, salsa and guacamole or ceviche could also be an easy appetizer option that will help keep the guests satisfied till dinner

But I'm glad my list helped give you some ideas ~ let us know how it turns out after your site visit!! And by the way, that's awesome you're going on site visit, a trip to Acapulco sure would be wonderful right about now Oooooooh and you're going to the Grand Mayan?? We're spending our second week in RM at the Grand Mayan, it will be our 3rd time there ~ we absolutely LOVE it!!! I think the Grupo Mayan resorts are absolutely the best Safe travels girly

I am having such a hard time adjusting my brain to the fact that I am not getting married in the northeast... I actually was talking to my WP about this and told her that my best freind had a mash potato bar at her wedding. She actually thought for a second that I wanted one too.. but it just the so different then what I am used to.
