@LoveMySailor1018: to determine the length of your cocktail hour,  i would check with your photographer to find out how much time they will need to take the pictures you will be requesting.  it will depend on the size of wedding party and number of family members.  (more people = more time needed)

i agree with bostongrl25.  have “cocktails and reception immediately to follow”.  as for the cocktail hour, i would suggest a few nibbles for your guests.  veggie platter, cheese platter or something passed.  if this wasn’t originally in your wedding budget, check with your caterer for some suggestions on budget-friendly hors d’ouvres.  to drink, punches are budget-friendly as well.

congratulations and good luck!!

@LoveMySailor1018:  when I talked to my photographer, they told me pictures would take about 2.5 hours! I don’t want my guests to be bored. Luckily, they’ll be able to check into the hotel, eat some snacks, enjoy a drink or two (no alcohol at this point), check out the museum (on site) and the waterfalls (on site as well!) so, I hope they can keep themselves entertained a bit. We’ll set up some lawn games, too!

I don’t think half an hour will be enough time for photos (like preveiously mentioned). I would ask your photographer! 🙂 Good luck!
