What should the timeline be for a cocktail only reception. The party will be 4 hours

We are having a cocktail reception at a wine bar in Las Vegas and would like to get a timeline of events. Reception is from 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM, Hors d'oeuvres and cocktails will be served, along with cake and champagne for the toast. Help

Thank you for your question! Most ceremonies on Magnetic Island take place around 3 – 4pm with the reception starting around 6.30pm. During the time between ceremony and reception, usually the couple will serve some Cocktail Snack Platters to keep their guests going. Then, once the bridal party enter the reception (usually about 15 minutes after the reception starts) additional food comes out such as canapés, snack platters, and a Fork & Walk Buffet with more substantial food around 7.30pm followed by speeches at 8.15pm. The dessert for cocktail style reception tends to be the wedding cake plated with berry compote and cream served around 9pm. And your 4 hour function would then wind up around 10.30pm.
