Question by Frankie: What is your best advice for a stand-up cocktail wedding reception?
We would like to do something "unique" for our wedding, and are considering a stand-up reception. The ceremony would be in the evening with the stand-up cocktail/hors d'oeurves reception to follow.
What works really well with these types of parties? Do you know of any bride/wedding blogs that document this kind of reception?

bad idea. people dress up for weddings, which means they are in uncomfortable shoes. if you want people to leave early due to foot pain from standing all night, then have your stand up event. furthermore, people hate to stand and eat. especially when you have a drink in your other hand- it's impossible! it's OK if you just want an informal reception with finger foods and cash bar, just let people know in the invitation they won't be served a full meal. but for god's sake let them sit down!
