A wedding [1] is a magical time, and getting ready with close friends and family for those few sweet hours before the main event contributes to the experience. Regardless of what nuptials you're planning, the bridal party will agree that quick and easy recipes to snack on are always welcome — along with a little Champagne, of course. We've got you covered with a few simple dishes that everyone's sure to enjoy, while the bride stays as stress-free as possible.

White Bean Dip

Don't let the beige hue of this white bean dip [2] fool you; there's nothing bland about the flavor of this recipe, and your bridesmaids can go for a dip even with their dresses on.

Chive Tartines

Instead of bagels and lox, take things up a notch with these lovely chive tartines with smoked salmon [3], boasting the flavors you love in bites that are easy to grab.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates

Bacon-wrapped dates may be satisfying, but you can put out these goat cheese and pistachio-stuffed dates [4] before the main event. Plus, your vegetarian friends will be able to enjoy them.

Easy Breadsticks

Instead of run-of-the-mill crackers, homemade breadsticks [5] will add a touch of easy elegance to your spread.

Tiki Snack Mix

A big bowl of tropical-themed tiki snack mix [6] will be gone before you know it. The meaty goodness of the bacon complemented by the sweetness of pineapple is a winning combination your bridal party will love to snack on.

Melon Prosciutto Skewers

Melon prosciutto skewers [7] are a clean, fresh recipe that are so simple to put together. If you're worried about that basil puree, just leave it off! These skewers will still be delicious.

Goat Cheese Endive Bites

Goat cheese endive bites [8] only call for a few ingredients, but they're sure to satisfy. If you're really short on time, just grab the ingredients and let your bridal party put them together on their own.

Greek Salad Bites
