I personally do not think you have to serve food or appetizers during cocktail hour.  Your guests will be fine if they have a drink and can mingle around for a bit before the reception the set up.  They can grab food when they are allowed back into the ballroom where there is a bit more room to move around and eat.

I agree that you don’t NEED to serve food, but I probably would (I tend to like to serve food with alcohol).  You could ask if the venue could serve just one simple passed app during the cocktail hour (and I wouldn’t worry about it being the same food that is available during the reception.

But really, no worries.  As a guest, I wouldn’t be upset at all about the lack of food during cocktial hour.

Honestly, I think you need to serve some food if people are going to be drinking alcohol.
