I just thought every wedding has a cocktail hour or some sort to give time for the wedding party to get the the reception. Well, there is a $660 difference in the catering packages we are looking at for our lunch reception, one with 3 appetizers and one without any. FI said at some point he wanted to go with the cheaper package, but I think it would be rude to have a photobooth, a advice board, and no food for a hour and 30. I going to ask if we can have a candy station, but I am not sure if we can do this. One of my BM suggested she attended a family wedding where there was no cocktail hour and guests went to find snacks on their own during the hour and 30 mins between the wedding and reception, where it was not a big deal for her and her husband to do this. So I post this to you ladies. Should I save money here or is the $660 worth it for 3 appetizers? Have you attended a no cocktail party reception, but there was a gap? Have you attending a cocktail party with drinks and activities only? Let me know your thoughts!
