Is there like a back room that you and the Bridal Party can go to after the ceremony?  It was really nice for us to have a few quiet moments (actually get to talk to my husband) and talk with our families/friends. 

We stayed in the back room for a bit, touched up make up, used the restroom, and then went back out to take a few post wedding pictures (we didn’t do a first look). 

What are your guests doing while they “flip the room”.  Are you having them stand outside?

what if you have something for them to do and have coffee and lemonade or some simple beverage that can be self serve? I imagine that will be cheaper than alcohol and won’t require snacks. Maybe you can have the guestbook out and seating cards as well as some sort of activity. i’ve seen brides create word searches and other such games for cocktail hour. Alternatively, you could use the snack money to create your own fauxto booth which should entertain guests for 30 minutes.
