Hello! My fiancé and I just chose our venue for our ceremony and reception. It would likely be 4:00/4:30 start time for the ceremony, with cocktail hour starting the room over immediately after. There would be cheese, crackers, and veggies during cocktail hour, and once the reception started, we were planning on doing a less formal meal of a variety of heavy apps. The venue has an option with various "Stations" where guests could serve themselves. The stations would include:
Pasta Station - 2 selections
Taco Station - 3 selections
Salad Station - one selection
Slider Station (served with a side) - four different selections
The event coordinator on site assures me that this will be enough food that guests will not be put out, but would you be bothered by not having a full sit-down meal, as it will be during dinner time? Should this be indicated on the invite some how? Is it just a bad idea in general?
