Cocktail hour is often the first time at a wedding that people have eaten in hours. After all, they’ve just spent time getting ready, getting to the venue, sitting through the ceremony and most likely dinner won’t be served for a few more hours. You want to serve an appetizer during cocktail hour that will hit the spot, satisfying guests’ hunger but not taking the place of a full meal. Offer too many appetizers, and guests will fill up on food and not eat the entree you spent a lot of your wedding budget on. Sliders make the perfect wedding appetizers because they are not too filling, and come in a variety of flavors and varieties.
