Cocktail hour is a great time for guests to mingle. Personally, it’s my favorite part of the wedding.

You could provide hors d’oeuvres as well. That always seems to be a big hit during cocktail hour.

Cocktail hour it definitely normal.  I agree with maggielou52; I would definitely consider providing light hors d’oeurvres during that time.  Not only does it give the guests something else “to do,” but it helps soften an hour of “straight drinking” that could lead to trouble.  Is your dinner area on the lawn under a tent?  How much extra space is there on the peripheral?  You could add some hi-tops and mismatched “cocktail tables” on the side which may encourage more mingling, rather than everyone just going straight to their seats at their dinner tables right away.

WE had our cocktail hour at the same spot as our ceremony and I provided some snack type items… it was actually a mocktail as there was no alcohol.  The snacks were well received and was gone and devoured by the time the ceremony and receiving line was over.  I think people munched on stuff beforehand too while waiting for the ceremony to start.

I didn’t do anything big or fancy (my caterer provided apps before dinner as well).
