You need to have some type of appetizers. 

Some budget friendly options:

cheeses, crackers, spreads

chicken wings

fruits and veggies

@mark_sheffield:  Hi, I like your idea of just having the evening reception. In fact  good few of the weddings I’ve been to – just have the one party. I’m not even sure you need to provide anything to be honest..    I’m sure they’ll be happy just having a drink.. been to loads of weddings where we have waited a few hours for the buffet to be served. However, if it’s very important to you, you could put some bowls of nibbles on the tables. Nothing expensive, just some crisps/nuts/whatever.
