No. Cocktails and tapas are fine. So are cake and champagne. Just tell guests what to expect.

Depending on what time the reception will start. If the reception will start a little earlier, say 6pm, I don't think it's right to give them cake. Even if you will start at around 7:30 you guest started preparing at around 5:30 to do their hair, clothes, etc. and that already missed their meal.

You can definitely be creative. Food trucks are popular if you do barn, rustic, or any outdoor wedding

Cocktail hour is fine as long as you manage guests expectations.
