If it’s a cocktail reception, then that doesn’t really make sense any way. I think for a Sunday you’re looking for a mid-day reception, if you had a late night cocktail reception then dancing would make sense.  Otherwise, I don’t think dancing will happen.

We did a Saturday night cocktail reception and the ceremony was in the same location- a wine bar/restaurant. We had a private area (an entire floor) and bar for our event.   Ceremony started at 7pm (finished by 7:30pm). Food (heavy apps) were brought out at 8pm.  We cut the cake around 9pm. To be honest, people arrived early (around 6:30 pm or so) and started drinking before the ceremony which was totally fine with us!

If your wedding has to be on a Sunday, I would make it brunch or an afternoon reception. It just makes more sense because people will want to be done early on a Sunday.

If you are really looking for an evening cocktail event but want to avoid Saturday, try Friday night instead.
