If you invite everyone to arrive Friday evening, yes, I believe you have to include them in the rehearsal dinner. And yes, to non-Mexican breakfast items on Sunday morning.

What are you doing for food for Saturday, other than the wedding? Are you encouraging guests to bring their own food for certain meals, or if they do not like/don’t eat, what’s on your menu?

I’d look at the numbers, who say they’re attending, before worrying about “cheap ideas.” You might find that some guests pplan to arrive later than dinner on Friday night,or leave early Sunday, before breakfast. Also there may be guests who don’t camp (like me), who may want the option to attend the ceremonyafterparty, only.

jjlove1985:  sounds like a cool idea … but then when PABride:  brought up all the logistics… it did seem a bit tough… you could pull it off but it would be like a destination wedding kind of but it would be a LOT of work for the guests because they would have to provide their own meals/drinks for most of the time unlike all inclusive resorts…..mmmm tough one!

I like the idea of a campground wedding although be prepared that some people just don’t camp. So are there good alternatives so far as hotels are concerned in the area?

Also, you do need to feed everyone on Friday. It would be deeply awkward for people to discover that they aren’t being catered since they dont qualify as the bridal party. I also agree with pps that you need to provide an alternative to the Mexican breakfast on Sunday too but I can’t imagine that this needs to be very costly.

What I would say is that you need to make everything very, very clear on the invitations. State which meals are included and which aren’t. Only with slightly complicated catering arrangements it is easy for guests to make the wrong assumptions.
