Snack Attack: Easy Nibbles for Your Cocktail Hour


One of the biggest woes of wedding planning is the budget. You’ve probably started to feel like money is flying out of your purse/wallet left and right uncontrollably. We get it. If you’re looking to cut back somewhere, why not start with appetizers? No one said you had to serve escargot and crab cakes. That’s why we pulled together seven simple, affordable eats that people will love.

Whether you individually portion and serve the finger foods or have guests help themselves, they will be ecstatic to see some of their favorites circling the cocktail space — goldfish, popcorn, trail mix, chips, pretzels and more. After all, who doesn’t love a salty bite with their cocktail? Also, taking this route is a much more affordable option than prepared apps. Grab a few friends and hit a bulk retailer to stock up on a few simple items, get some serveware and you’re set!
