    As long as your appetizers truly are plentiful, it shouldn’t be a problem. As a guest, I could see myself getting very hungry, since it is during dinner hour and having to wait for pizza, just might make me leave to go get something to eat. And honestly, I really don’t think I would be happy with being served pizza at a wedding.

    We are doing a very simple menu. Our wedding is on a Sunday starting at 3.  We are doing a BBQ-esque menu.  Dinner and ceasar salad, rolls, steak tips, roast chicken, rice pilaf, mixed vegetables.  Not a full blown dinner, but something simple and tasty.  i don’t see the issue with your menu at all, as long as the apps were enough to feed everyone.  And pizza, sounds delicious! Late night, after drinking and dancing, almost like a hangover food but get to enjoy it the same night! I’m very untraditional and would be very happy with that.

    I think it’ll be okay, as long as those appetizers are truly heavy and truly plentiful.

    I will point out that on four weddings, the brides ALWAYS complain eating that late. Of course they are judging each other’s weddings but then again maybe they are just more honest with their opinions since they are strangers?

    The key would be to make sure you have enough appetizers and the lines to get them aren’t long. I would be upset as a guest if I had to wait a long time in line to get appetizers and wasn’t served any other food until late at night.

    I think plentiful appetizers would be just fine…if you have a wedding website maybe let people know that it’s going to be appetizers just so your guests don’t show up expecting a sit down dinner…also it looks like you’re starting things a little later in the evening, so I think it would be acceptable
