Would it be weird if we had NO reception after ceremony?

I've thought about
a: having a big gap between the wedding and reception
b: having a cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony where we'll do dances and stuff, then go to dinner in one of the resort restaurants
c: having a big gap between the ceremony and dinner and not doing a reception at all.
*sigh* Luckily, I have some time to think about it. I'm leaning towards option B, because we're getting the cocktail reception for free, and apparently there is a lot of food included. So maybe we could even scrap the dinner. We'll see.

Good post and helpful, we are debating the same thing.

Okay, my dilemma is slightly different, but I need help. We are staying in st thomas at the marriott, getting married in st john. So basically we are taking a boat from our hotel to our ceremony site. The logistics of this are driving me nuts! What are our guests to do while we get photos done post-ceremony? We did not want to have a cocktail hour. We want to all return to st Thomas for dinner on the same boat.
Do we just have our guests hang out on the beach? Maybe I should make a cute cocktail hour with a little table and some signature drinks or something to nibble on right there on the beach while they wait for our photos to be taken?
Any suggestions on what I should do?

Thanks for sharing. We are not doing a formal reception as we are have AHR and can't justify spending the money when we are at an AI. Just having cake and champagne.

Just my opinion, but I think people would expect a reception if they are travelling that far to see you get married...
