Hi LeeAnn:

We are trying to save money on food at our reception. Is it OK to serve cocktail party reception with hot and cold hors d’oeuvres as opposed to a full dinner menu?



Hi Cindi!

Having a cocktail party reception is fine! And it will definitely save you money. There are a few things you need to remember to pull this off…Time the reception so it does not coincide with a major meal. Late afternoon is ideal, like 2 or 3 O’clock. Be sure the wording on your invitations is clear that you will be serving hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Good Luck,


Love It!

Love It!:

Beautiful Inexpensive Dresses can be yours when you shop at

Go to the site and click on special occasion dresses. They feature lots of dresses that could be used as bridesmaid’s dresses, mother-of-the-bride dresses and a few that make elegant wedding gowns. Great dresses start at $89.99 and go up to under $200.

There are a good variety of colors and styles to choose from. We liked the Chadwick’s One Shoulder dress as a Bridal Gown in Ivory for $129.99!
