no meal at reception?

19 years ago

I read on here that some of you have had a reception where you served only desserts and champagne. This sounds like an ideal option for me since trying to feed so many people at the house we are having the reception at will be difficult.

Those of you who have done this, what did people say afterwards? And those of you who haven't, does this sound tacky?

Also, how do you time it? How long between the ceremony and reception so that everyone has time to go out and eat. I want a night time reception and mid-afternoon ceremony.

Also, how do you ensure people will return for the reception after two hours or so?

Thank you for any advice.
