I was wondering if anyone here has had an afternoon reception. If so, did you serve a meal? Just hors d'oeuvres? Did you have an open bar? Just wine and beer? What time did you start and end? I think an afternoon reception would be better because I would like to have my wedding at a very nice place and it would be cheaper to not serve a meal, but my fiance thinks that people would expect one. But lets say the ceremony started at 1, 1:30 and the reception ended at 4-5ish. What do you think? Experiences both as a bride/groom and wedding quest would all be appreciated! Thanks!
