If I were going to a 2pm wedding, I would definitely eat beforehand, because that’s a start time that’s too late for lunch and too early for dinner. Also, something about the idea of servers acting as “consumption police” for the guests rubs me the wrong way, I’m not sure I can articulate why.

i think it will be enough. I wouldnt worry especially if your Maid/Matron of Honor is a planner and also agrees, she should know.

 I think you will be fine. I don’t think you should specify on the invitation unless you were NOT having food. if it says reception I would just assume there was food. I do agree that people might not be as hungry, but most people will eat something even if its small. I would probably eat before the wedding, but i’m always hungry and would find room haha

So I do think there should be people to help serve not so much to monitor the food. I’d get food for as many as you invited. I’ve never been to a wedding where people don’t expect to be fed. If I were going to a wedding at 2 I probably wouldn’t eat before hand. Between getting dressed, hair, makeup & driving I wouldn’t really have time since I don’t usually eat lunch super early.

I’d probably have breakfast but I would expect a full meal after the ceremony. No one is going to have time to eat lunch before the ceremony between getting ready and traveling. So what is your plan for food? That wasn’t clear in the OP.
