So after watching HOURS of wedding shows, I have had it drilled into my head that we should have a cocktail hour. Most of the weddings I've been to didn't have one and we kinda had to go fend for ourselves during the 1-2hour lull. I'm doing anything too fancy, just a few cold finger foods and spiked punch while we take pictures downtown.
BUT we're most likely getting a VFW or American Legion hall since we're on a tight budget. We haven't booked one yet, but the floor plan is usually plain and simple: walk in the door, BOOM! There's the hall. They're also pretty small, too small to split the room.
So is it wrong/tacky to just have the cocktail hour and the reception in the same room? Is there a way to mark the difference? Should I care? Or would I be better off not having one at all?
