I am so excited to marry the love of my life! I haven’t started officially planning yet since it’s all so new, but I’ve had this vision of my wedding for years. It’s not dark outside, but not bright as lets say, 4pm. I walk down the aisle after my best girl friends in a more woodsy area with lantern-type lights all around and say I do to the man I choose who chooses me also.
Afterward we celebrate with some music and time spent with friends and family (about 80-90 guests maybe?) who get to sample delicious and non-stock hors d’oeuvre as they please (maybe about 12 each). This means like no pigs in a blanket, which are delicious, but since I didn’t want a sit down dinner at 8pm, I figured some might be extra hungry and it might be hard on the stomach. Cake cutting is a little more traditional and guests can drink light cocktails and other beverages throughout the night as well.
So “night wedding” isn’t exactly correct but that’s what my dad refers to it as. I’d like to get married at about 7pm and planned to make it known that a sit-down dinner would not be served, but plentiful (and many healthy options) would be available. I also would let guests know of nearby eateries though almost all live in the area anyway.
What do you bees think? 🙂 I know it’s my wedding, and my parents want me to plan it and be happy with it, but would a later evening wedding and technically no meal throw you off if you were invited?
