I am getting married in a small campsite next August. We are just going to do a short ceremony around like 7/8pm and then have a bonfire, beverages, and s’mores afterward. I am just hoping, hoping, hoping for good weather…we don’t have a back up plan, yikes. We should come up with something!
I’m just curious if anyone else is doing something similar?

@LincsMama: I did something similar 🙂
We did a Cabin Mansion wedding! Our photogs didn’t capture any pictures of the bon fire but I felt like I spend a lot of the night there. We didn’t really have a end to our reception and family members could stay as long as they wanted. I think we ate smores until midnight and my FIL sang songs on his guitar. It was perfect 🙂

@Payless: That is awesome! I’m hoping to convince my fiance to bring his guitar 🙂 We have to make sure we are careful though because quiet time starts at 11pm.
Lots of our friends and family will be camping there for the night so we are going to have a bbq/picnic/potluck/whatever the following day to invite others who weren’t able to come to the actual ceremony. Our guest list has to be pretty limited due to the size of the campsite.

@LincsMama: That sounds beautifully intimate! Your FI should definitely bring a guitar because it makes the experience so much better! FIL sings a song called “dead skunk in the middle of the road” and all the kids at our wedding couldn’t stop laughing! We had like 80 people (give or take) at the wedding and all of them were family (except for bridal party). Once the extended family headed home it was just my close family 🙂
Our wedding was more formal than not but I think it still had that laid back feel 🙂
I love looking at the pictures! It flies by so fast!

@LincsMama: I think that will be really beautiful, you could set up a big marquee just in case it does rain but fingers crossed it wont.
