I say go for it. As long as the wedding’s not at lunch or dinnertime, people don’t need a full meal. I’m doing mine at 1:30 and having heavy hors d’oeurves instead of lunch, and the only complaint I’ve heard is that there won’t be alcohol (they can deal).

@polarice: I think it can be really classy and I love the idea. Have several good appetizers, different beverages/punch, chocolate fountain, fruit and a fabulous cake. I love the idea but I think it works best for an early afternoon wedding. Go for it…think whimsical, fun upscale lunch with friends, cocktail party or chic brunch.

We’re doing a cocktail-style reception. I think it’s awesome, because it encourages mingling & gives people a chance to have anything they want to to eat, rather than be shackled to one menu option.
