1. Salad Luncheon/Reception
If the wedding is late morning you can provide a wonderful salad luncheon. It's cheaper than a sit-down meal and you can offer a wide selection of salads with salads dressings, fruits and breads.

2. Hors d'oeuvres Reception - Deli/Party Trays Reception
This event is best placed between 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM or after an evening wedding. Light finger foods should be provided, like fruit and vegetable platters, chips and dips, and crackers. You can also provide more substantial foods like meat and cheese trays, oysters, shrimp cocktails chicken wings and egg rolls.

3. Decadent Dessert Reception or Dessert Party
It's appropriate between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM and after an evening wedding. An extensive assortment of rich desserts should be served, and beverages like coffee and tea.
