The type of food you are showcasing is likely to influence what time of day you present it. For example, if you were to choose a grazing table, full of cheese, chutneys and charcuterie, you may choose to bring it out during the drinks reception after your ceremony, as an alternative (or addition!) to canapés.
If you were opting for a more substantial hot food station, however, you may want to enjoy this with all of your guests, as a more interactive and bespoke approach to an evening buffet.
