Sounds like a great plan!  I’d love to attend a reception like that!

I am so with you on this one! Who REALLY likes to sit through all of that? We did the speeches as soon as everyone came in, and then everyone ate. The more comfortable you can make you guests, the more they’ll love your reception!

I’ve been to weddings like this, and honestly, they’re the BEST. My favorite part of it is you lose absolutely NO time with dancing. Dancing and music are so important to me, and it makes the reception seem even longer because you get more time for it.

My one piece of advice is to make sure the guests know that it’s a cocktail/appetizer reception. That way, they know to not save their appetites before hand and to go crazy on the appetizers. I’ve been to some weddings where I skimp on appetizers and wait for a dinner that never comes, not fun!
