    i would have h’orderves instead – the reception starts at 3:30, but it’s going to be lasting into the 5 o’clock hour and people are going to start to get hungry – give them something more substantial so they’ll stick around. if you said light refreshements, i’d think exactly what you posted – little sandwiches, fruit & cheese trays.

    i would definitely do heavy hors d’oeuvres. if people get hungry, they’ll leave. food keeps people happy and comfortable.

    To me, light refreshments = hors d’oeuvres.  Either way, I think it would be more of a crowd pleaser to have the heavier hors d’oeuvres, if your budget permits.  I do think 3:30pm is still early enough to have lighter fare or just even a cake reception.
