      Getting married in 2 months

    Hi everyone!

    So I’m a bit stuck for ideas. We are having a late wedding then straight to our evening reception because I don’t really want to do all the formalities. We are planning a buffet for the evening but I am worried that by the buffet starts that we are going to have a good few very hungry guests.

    Has anyone ever had a similar plan and have any suggestions on how to prevent this? I was thinking make little lunch bags for guests to have before the ceremony but then it’s getting them to all the guests when we will mostly see the bridal or groom party before the ceremony where as the rest of the guests will be making their own way.

    Then I’m worrying is it cheeky to suggest they have a light bite before they arrive? I don’t know
