- Wedding: August 2013
My Fiance and I have gone over so many ideas that our brains are pretty much fried by now. We think we might have finally come up with something we like, but I’d love some outsider opinions.
Our wedding is in August. About 150 people. Outdoor ceremony, indoor/outdoor reception.
We’d like to do a dessert reception, to cut down on costs. It’ll start around 8.
Make-you-own sundaes, brownies, and cheesecake for dessert. Our colors are purple and green, so we’d do mint chocolate chip (green), vanilla (classic), and raspberry sorbet (purple, also lactose free). I thought it could be fun to do floats for the toasts.
There will be cheese and crackers and all that good stuffr so people don’t get too sugared out.
For entertainment, we’re kind of steering away from dancing, because we tend to find it awkward and forced unless there’s alcohol involved, lol. But ours will most likely be dry.
So we thought we could have board games and outdoor games available. Cornhole, croquet, badminton, etc./Cards, checkers, RISK, etc.
We’ll also be doing sparklers and fireworks for our exit.
I’m just afraid that without dancing or a sit down dinner, people wont know what to do with themselves and get bored quickly. We want to enjoy people’s company and conversation, but I’m not sure how to do that without boring them to death.
What do you think? Am I just being paraniod? I would love some advice!
