Okay WW ladies, I have just sent my invitations Wednesday for our Sunday June 24th wedding. We are having 120 guests. The ceremony is at 2:30-7:00 pm and the reception is at 3:00 pm . On the reception card I wrote Cocktail Reception to indicate 'Lite Fare'.
For the bar, we are offering tea, lemonade, water, 1 keg of beer, and a signature drink complimentary. All else is Cash Bar. We have spread the news via word of mouth and have gotten good feedback. (Cash Bar is the norm in my area.)
For food we are doing appetizers. We are in the process of talking it over with our venue about our catering options. IF we go with the venue we get linens AND dishware at no extra cost. It's something to consider.
I was thinking about it more today and thought, "Well we are having a cake and candy bar. Why not just make it a dessert reception?"
Does cocktail reception wording expand to Dessert only?
As a guest, would you be mad?
Here are some pics we are thinking of:
