I’ve been to two weddings like this, and they were GREAT!  It was a fun chance to mingle and have a couple drinks, and when the ceremony happens, everyone is a little more joyful and emotional 😉

I would highly recommend this option if your ceremony can’t start til 7!

I’ve been to one with the cocktail hour first and enjoyed it very much.

How about maybe “Light cocktails and appetizers prior to the ceremony with full cocktail hour to follow”

One of my favorite weddings that I sever went to had a cocktail hour before the ceremony, just drinks though. I don’t think they had food, but I might have just missed it. It created a very relaxed and excited feel for everyone there. At the venue we are using, they provide passed champagne to guests when they arrive

I’ve been to 2 weddings like this; one was to allow the couple to take pictures.  Who doesn’t love food and booze early!
