Canapes is a great idea and will definitely keep the guests busy for a while! I’m sure you can hire caterers to set up in front of the church – we went to a wedding where they had this and they also hired a 3 piece jazz band, which was really cool! I have also seen people hand out paper cones of nuts or candy at or after the ceremony, which people can just snack on after the ceremony.

You could also do a cocktail hour at your reception venue, so the guests could go right there and not mingle outside the church for too long. How long will you need for pictures? It doesn’t sound like you’re having a huge gap in between anyway so I really wouldn’t worry – guests will amuse themselves! 🙂

You could have a non-alcoholic punch named after you guys. Like a signature mocktail. My FI and I love to go to quizzes in our spare time so we are going to a “how well do you know us” Mr and Mrs quiz, we are worried about that odd time between the ceremony and reception. Canapés  are a great idea to keep hunger pangs at bay.

I had a small wedding the first time around.  We did family photos right after the ceremony but we sent the guests onto the reception.  Once at the reception and while we were waiting for dinner to be served, my ex husband and I went from table to table thanking our guests for coming and getting pictures with each guest and couple/family.  We did this instead of a receiving line and it worked out great; it would have been a nightmare had we had more than 50 guests though.

I plan on doing something similar for my wedding in November except I also want one big shot with all of our guests and us in the middle.
