@Cappugcino:  I honestly don’t think you need to offer lunch. Personally as a guest i would just eat enough at the breakfast to last me through to the cocktail hour. Everyone knows they’ll be fed that evening so if they are peckish, you’re right they could order a pizza or something.

I think if you put on a lunch it would be too much food.

Maybe just list lunch options for people in their welcome bags.

I don’t think you need to offer a lunch. You’re already being very gracious with your guests providing them with so much to eat and do!

You might ask the inn if you could use a room as a “hospitality room” where you can lay out a table with some extra snacks, water, magazines, etc if you really feel you need to provide more. The room should stay unlocked so guests can access it whenever. It should be a conference room or something, not an actual hotel room.

But, I really feel you don’t have to provide lunch because you’re already providing SO MUCH for your guests. They’re most likely excited about checking out a new place and want some free time to do so. Being guests at a wedding, odds are they feel obligated to attend every event you set up and adding a lunch takes away the bit of alone time they have on their schedules. They’ll want to explore, veg out, read, be quiet, run around, get ready… I think that if you provided a lunch, poeple would be obligated to go to it and might burn out on wedding festivities and be more prone to leave your reception earlier. 

Plus it’s expensive!!!
