could you start the cocktail hour early?  i don’t think you necessarily need to plan something for guests to do, but please make sure that all the guests know that the cocktail hour doesn’t start until 7.  will there be food after that then?

some guests will probably want to eat earlier on their own.  8pm is rather late for a dinner if you are having food after the cocktail hour.

Have some entertaining like music and try to start the cocktail one hour later as @amariem25 said…

We’re facing a similar issue — and the two venues are so close you can walk there.  I’m thinking of giving guests a list of “things to do” in the area–recommended coffee shops, etc.

perhaps you could just have the word be spread at the ceremony or afterwards have the officiant announce that there was a change and the reception is starting sooner that the invitation announced.  No one will really care.  No worries.
