We're having 2 food trucks (burgers and tacos) catering our reception. The bar package will be provided by the venue, a small lakeside estate. However, we are stuck trying to figure out what to do for the cocktail hour. We don't want to keep people hungry until dinner, but most catering companies won't serve just cocktail hour and we're looking for something more casual (fun and tasty) than typical (read:boring) catered hot d'oeuvres.
We considered self catering since there is a kitchen available, but we are traveling 3 hours to the venue and I'm worried about the lack of time available and stress on our family that would be out.
