Cocktail hour

I am having a fall wedding on Halloween. My ceremony and reception are at the same place in defferent rooms. I cant decide how to do cocktail hour, because it would probably have to be in the same room as my reception. Also, were kind of on a tight budget. Would it be ok to serve one or two signature cocktails at cocktail hour and then just beer and wine at the reception? I would love some opinions! Also, if anyone has any festive cocktails, I would love to hear about them!

I think it's okay to serve the drinks as you've indicated, and our "cocktail hour" will be in the same room as the reception, but we'll also have some outdoor seating available for people who want to take their mojitos and appetizers out there. For a festive cocktail at a fall wedding, how about spiked hot apple cider? I've seen recipes for adding a little bit of rum to warm apple cider - yum!

Hot apple Cider is a great idea, especially because it will be chilly outside. I also thought a caramel apple martini might be a good idea, but I dont know if I would serve them just at cocktail hour or all night?
