@blessedbethebride:  I think 4 or 4:30 for a cocktail-styled reception sounds great!  Go for it! 🙂

I think that’s fine as long as you wrap things up early enough for people to get dinner after. If it went from 4-8 or something though, and I didn’t get food, I would be starving and probably kind of grumpy.

I’d have the wedding at 2pm then the cocktail reception from 2:30-5. We usually eat dinner at 5/5:30 so any later and I’d expect dinner unless specifically mentioned.
