Tapas style reception?

I have been toying with the idea of having one long cocktail hour instead of dinner. Here is why:

1. I want people to mingle.
2. I do not want to lose time to the buffet line or service. I went to a wedding a couple of years ago where the ceremony started at 4pm and by 9pm we were not even to the first dance.
3. I want people to dance from beginning to end.
4. I think I am going to appoint three of my male friends to dance with my aunts all night long.
5. I do not want to subject people to dry chicken, beef, and salmon. This really should be #1.
6. There will be good hot food all night long.

I finally found a term for this. A tapas reception!
