We are having a pretty casual, small wedding at a state park lodge and will be reciting our vows out on the bluff outside of the lodge. Since there is no official seating out there and we cannot close off the area or even put up decorations there, I want guests to be able to enter the reception room in the lodge, sit, have appetizer trays (meat, cheese, fruit) on the tables, then go outside briefly to exchange vows before coming back in for the actual reception where dinner (buffet style) will be served. Obviously there will be no walking down the aisle or anything like that. Very casual. We will be mingling with guests and greeting them as they arrive.
So what do I call this pre-vows appetizer period? I want the whole event to be comfortable and casual and we are only having wine and beer (these are the only alcoholic beverages available at the facility) I don't want to call it a cocktail hour. It probably won't even be a full hour, so I need a name that doesn't imply a time frame.
