Oh wow, that’s tough — and annoying!  Don’t you hate having to work within so many restrictions? 

Will you be making Out of Town or welcome bags?  If so, maybe you could include some munchies in them, along with a note letting your guests know they might want to back some goodies since dinner won’t start until 7 p.m.

I guess we’re in sort of a similar situation.  We’re getting married in a park at 4pm and the reception/cocktail hour is about 15 minutes away starting at 6pm.  So everybody’s probably going to have about an hour to kill.

My mom had the idea of having champagne and cookies set up on a table for people to socialize and watch the pictures get taken.  Since we’ll be in a beautiful park anyway, people can walk around, have a drink, watch the photos, etc.  My mom said she’s been to a couple of weddings where they’ve done this.  Also, my friend was just at a wedding where they did something similar.

I like the fact that you’ve provided some koi food, and wedding activity books. If it’s a really nice garden, I’m sure that the guests would be fine mingling and taking a stroll to admire it. Even if it takes less than a half hour to walk it, as long as they have water they should be fine. I would definately tell the guests ahead of time about the schedule.
