Hors-d’oeuvres For the Outdoors

The way to your guests’ hearts – the food. It’s been proven, that for most guests, the wedding cocktail hour is the most delicious segment of a ceremony. And since this is a mountain wedding, after all, it’s best to create tasty treats that compliment the beautiful outdoors.

Here are a few of our favorite appetizers!



Use Organic Elements

Use any organic elements in sight – such as bark, leaves, beautiful flowers, or overarching trees. It’s all at your disposal when you’re creating a beautiful mountain wedding.

It’s a Mountain Wedding, Get Your Guests Hyped!

It’s best to do this a few weeks before your wedding. Send each guest a teaser of the magical weekend they are going to be a part of. Snail mail or a guidebook will do the trick.

Or if you’d like to go the extra mile (we know you do), you can put together a gift super-specific to your wedding location.

Prevent Unwelcome Critters

The Appalachian Mountains have plenty of interesting critters and creepy crawlies. So, it’s best to keep the bugs and animals at bay during your beautiful mountain wedding. Have a professional company come in and spray a guard-type product before your wedding.

Additional Tip: Avoid floral decorations that bugs love. This day is for you, not them.
