That is a long gap. What are your guests doing from 3 to 6:30?

Is there anyway to do the ceremony from 3:30-4:30, start cocktail hour at 5pm and then get everyone started at 6pm and dinner at 7:15. Are you having other activies going on?

I always like to have some type of small appetizer at wedding receptions because I like to chomp down as soon as I walk-in (gives me something to do, I guess).  A fruit and cheese display would make me happy without filling me up.

i would just go with a simple appetizer, like fruit and cheese and crudite. no need for expensive hand-passed hors d’oeuvres.

I would say skip the cocktail hour. Have you seen TV shows where there are 8 course meals with cocktail hour and the guests just couldn’t eat anymore? It’s a waste of food.
