Your wedding menu courses that is. If you're having a full cockail hour with hors d'oeuvres before your sit down dinner, you could absolutely cut down on the number of courses you serve at the table. Everyone loves the cocktail hour and in many venues, that cocktail hour is more like a cocktail hour and a half. A light salad, entree and a tasty wedding cake will be plenty. Add a great DJ and dancing, and you're totally good to go! No one will miss the extra appetizer or pasta course.
