    The cocktail hour is not as important as the reception. So just do a simple cocktail hour and then  have the reception

    Cocktail hour should absolutely be in the same location as reception. What’s the point of a fancy cocktail hour if only half the people can indulge and people are anxious about moving to location 2? Guest comfort/safety trumps your foodie dreams I think.

    As a guest, especially if I am from out of town, I would prefer it all to be in one place. We are doing a simple cocktail hour, like what you stated. We focused on our reception dinner for the good stuff. If cocktail hour is really important to you, have it in two places. It is your wedding. I have been to weddings that had an amazing cocktail hour and others with pretty much nothing. I don’t think it makes or breaks the wedding.
