Pros and Cons of each? Can't decide which is better? Worried Cocktail Reception will run out of food since small portion sizes but it's $2-$5 cheaper depending on type of cocktail reception we choose
For me it would depend on the start time of the ceremony. If you're having a later start time, say 6:30 p.m., then it would be fun to do a cocktail reception since it's more of an evening affair and people can have something to eat before they come. If you're getting started earlier, I would offer a meal since people will be there for longer. I think a cocktail reception has a very fun and social vibe since you don't really have to be seated for a full meal.
