I think it apps sound good.  I’m a huge snack/apps fan and I think it would be really fun to pick out with all the choices there are out there.

I hope you can convince him on the sushi bar, as a guest I would love it!

I agree with apps.  People will eat lunch beforehand, and they probably won’t want to sit down and do a big meal in the middle of the afternoon.  But you could totally pass sushi rolls as one of your appetizers!

I love appetizers, eat them as full meals all the time, and hate sushi so I may be a wee bit biased…

Definately apps… I think if they are in stations that is best because people dont have to worry about chasing waiters down.

I always like meals, lol, but you’re fine with apps, too. You won’t really need a full meal, but eating is always fun :).

Apps! We’re doing that, but starting at the after-dinner cocktail hour.

Apps! We were kinda forced to do apps due to size constraints, and now I am in LOVE with the idea!

And skill swapping? Uh, awesome. I wish I had…a skill.

“Hello, Mister Photographer, I’m Katie. Would you kindly accept this mac and cheese that I made from a blue box in exchange for your $4000 fee? It’s my specialty…”

Could you say something like “cocktail reception to follow” on your invitations? That way you wouldn’t have to worry!

Considering it’s the middle of the afternoon, I think heavy apps are probably fine. If you get into stations, you’ll need to add seating (if you haven’t already) because people will have plates (I’m guessing your heavy apps are passed…)

How fun that you’re saving some money!!

I think appetizers are often yummier than dinners! Maybe you could do food stations though.. baked potatoes or ice cream sundaes or something, you could get really creative with it!
