So my MIL had the idea of going to a restaurant PRIOR to our cocktail reception, where we will be having: drinks, alcohol, and finger foods. She suggested we could invite people to go, but not have the obligation of paying for their meals, since we are also having a reception to follow.
I see a few issues with this, like for example, the food taking to long and being late to my own reception. People not reading everything sent and having the impression we are paying, and so much more. But I also know I am going to be starving and want to sit down and eat.
What do you guys think?
