We're having a 2 or 2.30 wedding so probably not as the meal will be about 6. Hope people have the sense to eat something before they come to the church! I know I never do.... :oops:

I'm the same as ChloeOct06 - 12:00 ceremony so will definitely have some kind of nibbles.

can i ask how much your canapes are costing? Ours is working out about 400 euros for 90 people which is another big expense in my book!

NO WAY would i have them. people don't appreciate them for the extra cost they are.

Going to have some canapes. Ceremony at 1.30pm and then dinner at about 6. I think its good to have them, most weddings i've been to alot of people are pretty tipsy by the time dinner starts. I think having some canapes will somewhat stop people getting legless!!!
