    We are doing a heavy apps menu much like your example but with desserts also. Our wedding ceremony is scheduled for 2 PM so reception is at approx. 3 PM. But close enough. 🙂

    I always prefer the appetizer set-up at other weddings at this time, because in general I eat before I go if it’s scheduled any later than 1:30.

    I love having the variety of little appetizers, it feels fancy and special.

    I know at 2pm I would be expecting to eat. But your appetizer menu sounds really good, like it better than lunch. I would just make sure you had enough pieces to fill people as I’m sure people will eat a little more since it may be lunch time for them.

    I would assume that I wouldn’t have been able to eat lunch getting ready and commuting to your wedding. So I would want lunch at 2.

    I’m doing a church reception at 2 as well! Our wedding’s at 1:30, and we’re just sending people straight there.

    I’m doing heavy appetizers. I figure most people will eat lunch before the wedding anyway. There will be desserts, just cookies and brownies or something along with the cake.

    I love the appetizer idea but what I’m concerned about is people who may not eat before the wedding because they are expecting to be fed a meal.

    It depends on how much apps each person gets. I do like the appetizers you listed above but if each person only gets a few they may still be hungry. So i voted for luncheon instead.

    I’m with people who say appetizers sound great as long as there is plenty for everyone so they won’t be hungry
