I would provide one or the other, probably drinks and apps once they arrive.

@35thannidaughter: I think it would be best to have some appetizers for the “waiting time.” It always helps pass the time and holds people over until dinner. I would say you don’t have to open the bar until your parents get there. No need for the extra half hour. Hope all goes well with the planning 🙂

I actually vote to open the bar right away.  I think some people might find it easier to socialize with a drink in hand.  And your two parents are not going to drain the bar tab themselves, so waiting to have the bar open until they get there probably won’t save you much.  I think if you do decide to open the bar then you should definitely serve the appetizers at the same time.   Don’t want people drinking on empty stomachs. 

ETA:  I just re-read your original post.  Are you sure you have to pay extra to open the bar and serve apps 30 minutes early?  If that’s the case then I change my vote and now say no need to open the bar 30 mins early.

If you intend to have alcohol available, you must have food (your bartender and caterer will require it for liability issues) or else you will have drunk (and sick) guests you are 100% responsible for.
