I’m having a Friday wedding too! If you have room in your budget, I would try to add some heavy hor d’ourves. You dont need to serve a full fledged meal but I have found that wedding guests tend to prefer to be well fed, especially if you will be providing alcohol. Drinking and snacking on cheese and fruit may not end well, especially since they are known for starting trouble.

As for the wording, you could put hor d’ ourves and cocktails immediately following.

However, I agree with the PP that I would do more than fruit and cheese. I don’t know if you have the ability to do any hot food like pasta but if not, perhaps some wraps, different dips with crackers/bread. You need some carbs to soak up the alcohol.

I would write ‘followed by light refreshments’ or ‘hor d’ ourves’ so people are aware that they wont be getting a dinner meal.

One venue we talked to had a great suggestion: Three appetizers for every hour of alcohol served. They can be the same 3, but just have 3 available for every “alcohol” hour. I think 8pm is a good time. We were invited to a wedding with a dessert and cocktail reception. They said “Dessert and toasts to follow”.

Our wedding is on a Friday night, and we are doing appetizers as well.  We indicated such on our RSVP card, and our ceremony doesn’t start until 7:30pm, so we should be good.  We are having veggie trays, fruit trays, cheese trays, meatballs, chicken skewers, and mini smoked meat sandwiches with appropriate toppings.  We are also having wedding cake, a smores bar, and an open bar.

“cocktail reception” usually does the trick!
