- Wedding: October 2012
Hi everyone – first time poster here, been lurking for a while.. 🙂
I had a question for everyone about having a cocktail/happy-hour type reception. We are getting married on October 20th in the middle of the afternoon. Our reception and ceremony are being held at the same place. It’s a smallish wedding (about 70 people) with the ceremony at 3pm and the reception starting at around 3 30ish.
The venue where we booked is not really a venue at all, but a business (its a bar – but a super cute one!) – and they need us packed up by 8pm. (We don’t have to leave, but they’re going to open to the public at 8pm) Because of this, and because of money, we decided against serving a sit down dinner and just want to do an appetizer spread instead.
Again, money is an issue, so we’re trying to do this as cost-effectively as we can. If we plan on having a reception/happy-hour until about 6 or 7, how many pcs per person should be planned? Also, if you throw in a few trays of veggies and fruit/cheese, how would that affect your pc/person amount? (The veggie/cracker trays are much cheaper!)
(We are having a cake too, of course 🙂 )
Thanks so much in advance! <3
