The compromise is tapas.
Or maybe topless?

Meh, go for both.

Open bar gets people milling about, ready to mingle. If they all get along well and want to talk to each other, then you want to set it up for mingling: Hors d'oeuvres.

On the other hand, if they're relative strangers or they simply don't get along that well, the table provides a safe sanctuary for those that can feel uncomfortable. If that's the majority, Appetizers.


That advice sounds solid.

My wedding was at a public park and had around 22 guests.

We took them all out to dinner at one of Boston's best and most expensive restaurants. The bill was gigantic but on a whole the wedding was cheap.

So what I'm saying is for the traditional wedding I got nothing.

WTF is this rank?

Considering the attitude around our marriage was "what took you so long?" and "you weren't already. :smt017", I'm not sure my opinion counts.

We did a small reception of about 50 people. I actually baked our cakes. I need to dig out that pumpkin chocolate chip recipe. :-D

But to answer your question, I'd do the hors d'oeuvres.

Updated! Now With Poll!

I want to thank everybody for their responses so far but I must admit that I am pretty shocked by how decisively Hor d'oeuvres seems to be winning this argument.

Hors d'oeuvres and an open bar. That's what I did. It allows people to mingle and not be stuck at a table. It's nice if there's tall tables to stand at so you can put your food or drink down. Make sure the food is available right away, after the wedding ceremony people need something to hold them over until the meal, especially if they're drinking. And have something kids like if they're going to be there, a whiney kid can ruin the atmosphere.

Luckily we won't have to deal with whiny children because the first thing that we did while trying to figure out how we were going to keep the guest list under 50 people, was make the wedding adults only.

Oh, we couldn't find a babysitter, but he won't be a bother. Junior, stop pulling the flower petals off!

Or, we thought adults only meant no kids under 10. Don't you have any hot pockets or pizza?

Only a handful of the people that we are inviting have kids and we have already begun informing them of the "Adults Only" policy and what it means. So far, it really shouldn't be a problem.

I love weddings. Free alcohol and gourmet food. Of course I would never get married. Even if they approve gay marriage in my country.
