Ah, the wedding cocktail hour. This is the time you want to hold your guests over with scrumptious little morsels and light spritzers while your wedding party finishes up with photos. Or, maybe you want to serve sweeter pairings at the end of the evening. The 2016 trends are showing more and more couples choosing to serve food pairings instead of just the usual, separate cocktails and appetizers at their weddings. Here are some of our favorite combos right now. Hopefully they get your creative juices flowing!
