Is there a staff at the lodge or one with just you and guests?

If there is a staff, they should handle cake set up and things like that. If you aren’t really having a DJ or musicians, they may push play on an iPod or something from your dance/ceremony music.

If it’s just you and guests, it gets harder. You have to ask one of those guests to do all that, or hire someone to do it.

@thumpurr:  

Hi Thumpurr, your chef catered dinner is your reception!  It’s how you’re thanking guests for witnesses your wedding.  Your idea is exactly what I was planning once upon a time – vacation rental, intimate wedding, private chef!

You could hire a day of coordinator (DOC) who can do those things for you.

With so few people I’d probably set up the cake myself. Maybe ask my sister to start the music for the dance.  For the ceremony, you could hire a single guitar musician maybe.  We actually didn’t have any ceremony music.

@thumpurr:  If your daughter can push play on an iPod, I think that is a very reasonable think to ask her to do.  Normally I’m not a fan of asking guests to do things, but this seems so minor and the atmosphere seems intimate enough.

What all would be involved with setting up the cake?  Can you set it up prior to the ceremony, like when you’re getting ready?
