Summer is here and with a sky full of sun comes a parade of weddings and hopeful couples.

Planning a wedding menu is just one of the many stressful things to sort out for a day that is life

changing for many. But we know the recipe to success and one ingredient you can’t afford to

forget is – throw in some delicious, memorable summer Appetizers & hors d’oeuvres!

Here are a few summer wedding appetizers that will cause a stampede around the buffet table

  1. Grilled Shrimp (with Tomatoes)

Grilled Shrimp Tomatoes

Keep things light and refreshing with a colorful array of

grilled shrimp surrounded by freshly cut heirloom

tomatoes. Shrimp is a classic summer appetizer and will

pair with almost any cocktail you serve. Give this app an

extra vibrant crunch by adding green and yellow bell

peppers to the mix. Garnish and season for an attractive

display and even your vegetarian guests will find it hard to

resist it.

2. Mini Salad Skewers

Any appetizer on a toothpick is an automatic hit as guests can pick and eat without making a

mess. Waiters carrying a tray of Caprese salad skewers will

have to contend with all wedding tables frantically waving

them over throughout the celebrations. Put your own twist on

this popular oil drizzled tomato, basil and mozzarella bite by

adding grilled chicken or infusing the olive oil with chili for a

pleasant, taste bud tingling kick.

3. Sorbet Cups

Outdoor weddings in the summer could get hot, so keep your guests cool with mini sorbet cups.

Lemon, grapefruit, berry, orange – there are countless citrus and fruity flavors to choose from.

Use colorful plastic sorbet cups to serve or go natural with the hollowed out fruits themselves.

You can bring them out after dinner as a pre-desert desert or serve them throughout the

afternoon as a refresher for your guests.

4. Stuffed Mushrooms

You just can’t go wrong with cheese filled, creamy, stuffed mushroom

caps. Go with a totally vegetarian option to delight your more health

conscious guests or make new friends for life by serving with crunchy,

bacon bits. But no one’s saying you can't do both!

5. Bacon Wrapped Scallops

If you’re looking for more bacon in your menu (and who

isn’t), then bacon wrapped scallops are the way to go.

The Caprese skewers may have waiters running in circles

to reach all hungry guests, but bacon wrapped scallops,

with their crispy exterior and soft, seafood interior, will

cause every waiter in possession of a tray with these

appetizers on it to be mobbed.

6. Mini Twice Baked Potatoes

Yes, we all love chicken satay skewers, but a bite sized potato

covered in warm cheese and drizzled with sour cream and

bacon bits is a substitute that won’t receive any complaints.

Seasoned and served with these toppings or hollowed out and

stuffed, baked potatoes will be a delicious appetizer that can be

eaten before or even with dinner.

7. Melon Ball Cups

Melon ball cups

What could be cuter and more delicious than a cup of

cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon in the form of bite

sized spheres? Serve before or after dinner as a refreshing

contrast to other meat and vegetable appetizers. If you’re

thinking, ‘that’s basically just a fruit cup,’ put a tangy twist to it

by soaking the melon balls in flavored vodka beforehand.
