So we decided to have a church ceremony (Catholic, with no Mass) but not sure about the reception. We’ve thought about having the reception at FI’s grandmother’s backyard. It’s big enough to host a party. But my question isn’t about parking or getting a tent or decor, it’s about the formality. I want to keep the reception fun and casual. Should I tell the guest to keep the attire “business casual” for the guys and casual dresses for the ladies? I might be worried my dress will be too formal for the reception. I don’t want to just change for the entire reception because I want to keep it on. I do plan to change towards the end. We want for everyone to have a great time withou the time restraints like most banquet places.
Can you miss a traditional church ceremony with a casual reception?
