Let’s face the facts – your guests are probably just as excited to know what’s going to be on the menu as they are to see you walk down the aisle. That being said, it is important to pay careful attention to your wedding day dishes! Right now, we are loving the idea of mini food items that will not only look adorable but also taste amazing too! Since it is customary to provide 4-5 pieces per person of passed apps during an hour long cocktail hour, these mini options will help you save big time! We did some serious brainstorming and came up with a list of our top 12 favorite tiny yet undeniably tasty treats. Enjoy!
