I am considering a heavy hors d'oeuvres reception with passed appetizers during the cocktail hour and then several stations that guests can keep returning to throughout the reception up until the cake cutting (at which point the stations will close, but dessert and drinks will still be available). I like that this format encourages mingling, but am concerned about it possibly seeming cheap (even though it's not) or low brow (which I hope it's not). What have been your experiences with heavy hors d'oeuvres receptions? What are the pros and cons? Thanks!
