Depending on what time your ceremony is, you can certainly offer cupcakes and punch/lemonade afterwards, and then the full reception for family.  Cupcakes aren’t horribly expensive, and either are gallons of lunch and lemonade, and I’m sure you can borrow punch bowls from your family.

Did you invite these extra 200 people to the wedding?

Are you looking for something they can eat right away?  If you are a cook/baker or are you thinking something already pre-made (as you are running out of time and probably don’t want the stress).

Something very simple is kettle popcorn if it fits your theme/idea/area.  You could try and see if you can find mini macarons but they can be a bit more expensive.

Oh boy is that a situation. I just hope your ceremony-only guests are fully aware that they are not going to your reception, did you have two sets of invites or something? This sounds just a *tad* messy.

I agree with cupcakes and punch though it’s not a favor necessarily, unless each one is in its own box or something. Maybe cake pops? They could have a little thank you attached to them? Google “cake pop favors” and you’ll see a bajillion examples.

What about a cookie receiving line?  You can set up a table filled with lemonades, teas, and cookies and you and your new husband can stand at the end.  People walk through the cookie line and enjoy refreshments, then greet and congratulate you at the end.  Yes it is time consuming, but it allows you to say hello to everyone that came to the ceremony and they also get a small treat.

@FutureMrsSlagle:  +1! Great idea. OP, if you’ve got time for this I think would be really nice, especially as a way to interact personally with all those folks who will not be at the reception.

I also second what mrscash said — I hope everyone is aware of which events they are and are not included in!
