  • Wedding: April 2013

I have!  My sister hosted her wedding reception in an art gallery last spring, with a ‘strolling reception’ as you put it, and it was a hit!  She still had dancing, but the food was out in stations the entire time, with plates at each station, and there were high-tops and low-tops, and people walked around and mingled the whole time!  It really was so much fun, and nearly effortlessly done.  People really loved the idea, and surprisingly enough, although it was an evening wedding, noone went away hungry!  MUCH more affordable than the appetizer/cocktail hour/plated dinner option.  We’re talking hundreds of dollars…  Best of luck to you!

I really wanted to do wedding like this.  I think it’s a great idea and can be pulled off well.  Have high tables that people can stand/eat, as well as lower tables for people to sit/eat.  

If it were me, I’d word it as a formal cocktail reception and dancing (assuming you are having both drinks and dancing).  IMO, that would imply it’s not a seated dinner, but food would be served.  The time of day would also imply how much food you are serving.  If you feel that’s too elusive, what about:  Cocktail and tapas reception to follow… that would say it all!
