Our ceremony is at 5:30 with cocktail hour immediately following and then dinner starting right away. Do we really need to have some sort of food during the cocktail hour? We were planning on doing cheese and crackers and veggies, but even that is $5/pp plus tax and tip. We expect 160 people, so we're looking at $1000. So we're thinking about cutting it out.
I was planning on making some of our floral centerpieces, but if we cut out that expense we could easily afford to have the florist do all of the centerpieces (with plenty of money leftover) and I wouldn't be a stressed out lunatic the day of.
Is it ok to just say no to cocktail hour snacks?
