- Wedding: July 2011
This sounds silly… but I honestly don’t know how to have a Sunday morning wedding.
I haven’t been to many weddings, but I always imagined mine to have my [many, many] guests eating a smorgasboard of food and dancing the night away on a warm summers night.
Well, finances don’t allow such things and you have to compromise.
So now I am having an intimate Sunday morning wedding. A small ceremony [20 people] in a public garden and then a slightly larger reception at a restaurant after.
Here is where I become worried: The restaurant is only giving us 3 hours for their facilities. I feel like that is not enough time to get/eat their food [trying to decide between a sit-down brunch or a appetizer reception] and then do the fun wedding stuff i imagined like cutting a cake and having toasts and chatting and sling-shotting my garter across the room and especially…. dancing. But I am willing to give up some of this stuff, and FH ensures me that this is PLENTY of time.
So with that in mind, here are my questions [to start]:
Is a reception possible in 3 hours? Anyone have a copy of a reception schedule-type thing that was about 3 hours? What did you do?
Does a 3 hour reception include dancing?
If you have a morning wedding… what does everyone do for the rest of the day? I thought we needed to hang out with friends, but FH thinks they will be okay on their own and we should start honeymooning ASAP.
