I think 5pm is usually fine, things cool down pretty dramatically after 3 and if you offer a fun variety of iced beverages like different lemonades and teas and maybe an ice cream or shaved ice station that could be a lot of fun, but that is of course if its in your budget.

I was thinking the same thing: move part of it inside so people can eat and drink while they are waiting.  But I think you should serve cocktails or at least beer and wine.  I wouldn’t be that happy with bottled water and chips.  Actually, I would be fine with the chips as long as there was booze:)

Is that a possibility?  You could have glasses of an inexpensive prosecco (sp?) with some berries dropped in and even just some nuts and cocktail mix for snacks.  Most people would be happy to wait around as long as they had a drink in hand a few nibbles.
