I am going to have a big gap too.  My ceremony is going to be at 1:00pm, receiving line,  followed by the gap where the bridal party will take all kinds of pictures, cocktail hour at 6, and then dinner at 7. 

Are you having a lot of people who will be coming in from out of town?  I would put local attractions on your wedding website to keep your guests occupied during the gap.

I wouldn’t make your reception, too, too long.  If you’re having an open bar, you’re going to have some sloppy drunks at the end of the night, lol

Good luck!

Since you’re only expecting a few guests at your ceremony, why don’t you have appetizers wherever you all will be during the gap (for just the approx. 20 people)?  Maybe family and close friends will be taking pictures in the park or maybe you all will be at a hotel or wherever.  Designate someone to bring light appetizers/beverages to that location, hang out and have a good time.  Then you all can meet the reception guests at the reception for dinner.

I’d also provide a list of suggested activities for your guests for the down time.  That’s what one couple did at a wedding I attended for them – we had the Hindu ceremony in the AM at 11ish I think, then the catholic ceremony in the evening followed by the reception.  So a gap of ~4 hours between the two ceremonies.  They told us some sights to see.  (We of course, ended up going to a bar instead that they verbally recommended to someone for drinks, but we appreciated the sight list nonetheless.)
