I think appetizers are fine, as long as noted on the invite that it’s hors’ de ouerves only, but if people are really coming from 2+ hours away, it would probably be more considerate to serve them a whole meal. 

Are the ceremony and reception in the same place? I could see having the ceremony at 3 or 3:30 and then having the dinner at 5 if you wanted to do it early. 

Good luck!

I think if you aren’t going to serve a full dinner, you are probably going to have to start the dinner before a meal time (like 5-6).  Unfortunately, I think that means the out of town people are going to have to take at least a half day off before and maybe more.

You’re my wedding date twin!  I don’t think I’ve found one yet. 

Anyway, our wedding is at 6pm but we’re doing a sit down meal so we couldn’t pull it off much earlier.  I think it depends on your guests.  If its realistic to have them take that day off or at least the afternoon, you can start the wedding earlier  but I’d say you wouldn’t want to do it any earlier than 4.  If not, I’d go later if possible, like 6ish.  And the idea of appetizers and finger foods would still be fine, even at an evening wedding.  There are so many great appetizers that have substance so your guests won’t be hungry.

You could do a brunch. My cousin and her husband had their ceremony at 11, and then a champagne brunch at noon. It was lovely.
