First of all, why is the gap so long? Long gaps are not popular on the bee nor with me. 

I would suggest aranging activities for your guests.

Sip cocktails on the beach!

Gaps are common here, it’s never an issue.  Since it’s a DW you could provide some points of interest with the info included in the invitations or on your website.  People usually find a restaurant to grab some food and drinks.  If there’s kids, they can run off their energy.

Gaps are common here as well. In fact, guests usually go home and relax before the reception. Because you’re having a DW wedding, I suggest making a list of activities/points of interest for guests to give them a variety of options to choose from!
